Part of the title of this video roughly translates to “1971 Fuji Masters 250km Race,” which means this footage likely comes from the very first year of the Fuji Grand Champion Series, a championship that raced exclusively at Fuji Speedway and originally welcomed FIA Group B6 cars.

Yes, electric cars often run quieter than their ICE counterparts because they, you know, lack a gas- or diesel-powered engine.
