FIM eRoad Racing Heads To Le Mans for World Cup

 

The FIM eRoad Racing World Cup continues at one of the most historic race tracks in the world when Le Mans hosts the series on September 20. FIM eRoadRacing is the world’s premier electric motorsport series, with the series taking in seven races across three continents.

The ground-breaking FIM eRoad Racing World Cup will complete its European series at Le Mans as teams from across the continent compete for a place in the world final, where they will join teams from the US. This will be the third time Le Mans has presented electric motorcycle racing to the world. Previous meetings at the circuit saw European teams compete in 2010, 2011, and 2012. FIM eRoad Racing is part of the 24 Heures Moto’s meeting, on September 21 and 22.

“The Automobile Club de l’Ouest has been a vehicle for progressing mobility, especially in endurance events, since 1923 with the creation of the 24 Hours of Le Mans,” Frédéric Lénart, CEO of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest explains. “That is why, since 2010, we have been delighted to welcome electric motorcycle racing for the 24 Hours Moto. The FIM eRoad Racing World Cup competition is in line with sustainable development and provides the public with intense racing at a high level, which fits perfectly with the philosophy of our club.”

Su Rong Zai currently leads the European Championship with China-based team Zongshen on 61 points, while teammate Ho Chi Fung sits in second place with 50 points.

TTXGP are the official promoters of the FIM eRoadRacing World Cup. From 2014, FIM eRoadRacing will follow a World Championship, with every team competing on each continent for a chance to be crowned world champions.
