The Woodcraft Technologies eMotoRacing Series comes to California for 2 back-to-back events.

The big track at Willow Springs will host two eight lap electric road races on April 25 and 26.

Later the following week, Sonoma Raceway will be the site of two more rounds of zero emissions racing, April 30 and May 1.

A three bike team sponsored by Hollywood Electrics of Los Angeles will pit specially prepared Zeros against the Brammo Empulses that have dominated the series in 2014 and so far into 2015.

Riders Jeff Clark, Brandon Nozaki-Miller, and Nathan Barker will pilot the Zero Team.  Brammo riders include Pete Nicolosi of NC, fresh from a win at NOLA, Murrae Haynes of NM, and defending series champion Arthur Kowitz on his solar powered streamliner.

Last year’s winners at Willow Springs was Dave Roper and Arthur Kowitz. Winner for both races last year at Sonoma was Eric Bostrom.

Later in the season, the eMotoRacing events at Miller and NJMP will showcase prototype road racers built and campaigned by university student teams. These teams will compete against the Brammo and Zero production based bikes.
