Full press release: 20190218 Press release_Open eSBK – Applications race weekend 1 open now
The very first racing weekend of the inaugural season of the Open Electric Superbike Competition is set: the Ducati Club races at the Assen TT circuit. The application for teams is open now!
From May 24thuntil May 26th, the very first practices, qualification and races will be ridden. This is a unique opportunity for electric racing teams and electric motorcycle owners to show the true potential of their machines.
“There is special circuit time reserved for electric motorcycles only. This is very unique, the beginning of an era! Also, there are multiple classes to create a fair competition for all types of bikes: Zeros, Energicas, other brands and prototyping superbikes”, says director Jeroen Goudswaard.
Since the championship is an open competition, everyone can join, as long as their motorcycle is electric. Goudswaard explains the thought behind this open principle: “This is a very important aspect, since this enables more starting machines on the grid. Also, this weekend contains five track sessions, which gives a lot of circuit time. We really think this makes it fun and exciting to join.”
The registration is open now, and the first round of applications closes the 4th of March. To ensure a place on the grid, teams should apply as soon as possible. Register via: http://www.openesbk.com/register
