Perhaps I'm a bit overexcited. Can a street-track-based championship pulling off a race in the middle of a city really be a candidate for 'modern motorsport's greatest achievement'?
I could be stretching the point. But I'm convinced Formula E's inaugural Paris ePrix is a big deal. Not just because of the history it made, but because of the blueprint it offers the series, and perhaps even motorsport, for the future.
City-to-city races involving the French capital were a staple of the dangerous pioneering days of motorsport, but a real street race has always seemed like fantasy. Formula E made it a reality on Saturday, but gauging the excitement for that achievement away from the event isn't easy.
