GOVECS Sponsors TTXGP Electric Races

Motorcycle News

GOVECS, creators of the GO! series of performance electric scooters, is sponsoring the TTXGP eGrandPrix series – the world’s first zero carbon, clean emission ‘electric motorcycle Grand Prix’.

As well as sponsoring event, the company will be providing its GO! S 1.2 electric scooters for organisers to use as transport at the events – contributing to the clean emission targets, not just of the races themselves but of the entire event series.

The TTXGP eGrandPrix is an international series which not only provides exciting, hotly contested motorcycle race action but also a high profile platform for the development of electric motorcycles, which enables the cutting edge technology behind them to be tested to its limits.

It aims to be a key driver behind low-carbon technical innovation by demonstrating that sustainable transportation technologies have matured and can be fun, fast and exciting.

Global motorcycle road racing events are taking place in America, Italy and the UK with the final in Albacete, Spain on the 23rd and 24th October.

"We’re delighted to be supporting the TTXGP eGrandPrix," comments Thomas Gruebel, CEO GOVECS GmBH. "It features all the high-octane, adrenaline fuelled race-action that you’d expect from motorsport but with a unique eco-conscience, which we think sums up modern motor culture. The need for environmentally-aware transport is a no-brainer nowadays. It’s not a matter of choice but of responsibility that we have to look after our environment, but at GOVECS we don’t think that has to be at the expense of style and fun. What better way to demonstrate that than with a zero carbon eGrandPrix."

"GOVECS is a natural partner for our event," adds Azhar Hussain, founder and CEO of the TTXGP eGrandPrix. "Their GO! series of electric performance scooters are the embodiment of our ethos, which is to have fun and provide entertainment – while consistently testing the limits of technology to significantly improve the motor industry’s green credentials."
