Wrapping up the Season
This past weekend marked the end of eMotoRacing’s first season, which ended up being a successful one. Overall there were 21 contestants, which included riders previously experienced in racing gas-powered motorcycles, as well as teams who focused on building electric bikes. The battlefields included 10 notable tracks, each of which presented their dangers and advantages.
The eMotoRacing series became the first sanctioned racing series to not only allow, but encourage, full-fairing streamlining since the concept was disallowed by the FIM back in the 50’s. eMotoRacing will continue on in to the 2015 season with the goal of promoting innovation in the zero-emissions field through the excitement of green racing.
We would like to thank the participants, sponsors, and dedicated race fans which made this amazing first year possible. Sign up below to receive email updates on the details of the 2015 season as they unfold. Tracks and dates are still being firmed up.
Daytona Results, October 18 – 19, 2014
The placing from both Friday’s practice and Saturday’s race were the same:
- Arthur Kowitz, Brammo
- Andrew Cowell, Brammo
- David Sadowski, Brammo
- Murrae Haynes, Brammo
The Daytona Beach News-Journal and several Central Florida news stations covered the electric motorcycle action, which was held during Biketoberfest. One of the highlights of Biketoberfest is the continuous rumble of gas-powered bikes pouring into the Greater Daytona Beach Area, so race fans were intrigued by the quieter, yet zippy electric bikes which hit up to 120 mph.
Series founder, Arthur Kowitz, also took 1st place in the Vintage Superbike Heavyweight class, and then hung his gas-powered racing hat up in favor of going all electric for the 2015 season.
For a participant to have placed in this season, they had to have raced at least twice.
