At the second track on California soil this week, the eMotoRacing series is challenging participants to give it their all. Harlan Flagg of Hollywood Electrics hosted the race at Willow Springs International on the weekend of the 22nd — 24th.
Riders on both Brammos and Zeros butted heads, with Pete Nicolosi, a Brammo rider winning on Saturday, and Gene Sigal, a Zero rider winning on Sunday.
Now the gang is back racing today and tomorrow at Sonoma International Speedway — a winding 12-turn course with a hairpin.
While we await the results from today’s race, check out this fun video at Sonoma Raceway from eMotoRacing’s first season back in 2014!
More Fun Memories from Sonoma during our 2014 Season:
Hollywood Electrics is excited to welcome the eMotoRacing crew to Willow Springs Raceway this coming weekend (April 22-24)! We’ll be bringing along a few riders and their Zero Motorcycles to break the monotony of the single brand grid we’ve seen so far this season.
“Big” Willow is a high speed track that can challenge the limits of any electric drivetrain. An additional challenge we’ve seen in years past, are the heavy afternoon crosswinds that sweep down off the surrounding hillsides.
On the plus side, Willow Springs has plenty of on-grid charging outlets, including 220VAC for the electric motorcycles that can take advantage of Level 2 Charging. Hollywood Electrics will also be bringing our Solar Powered Race Support Vehicle to help with any extra charging needs.
This will be a great AHRMA eMotoracing event for the competitors and spectators alike. Not only do we get to watch the new electric motorcycles get pushed to their limits, but we also have the privilege of seeing the archaic vintage bikes put on quite a show! The Corsa Motoclassica hosted by the Garage Company’s Yoshi Kosaka always brings some great eye-candy too!
Besides, is there any better way to spend April 22nd’s Earth Day Weekend than racing Motorcycles in an environmentally friendly fashion?
