3rd Annual eMotoRacing Varsity Challenge July 9th – 10th

The 3rd Annual eMotoRacing “Varsity Challenge” ebike roadrace will take place July 9th and 10th at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

Collegiate racing teams from the US and Canada will race their engineering student built prototype electric racebikes in the AHRMA sanctioned event.
The top placing university team will take home a $1000 scholarship awarded by Woodcraft Technologies.

Rochester Institute of Technology, winner of last year’s Woodcraft Scholarship, will have competition from the University of Sherbrooke, Quebec, the University of Michigan, and Cornell University of New York.

On track with these collegiate teams will be private teams from around the USA.  Current series points leader, Pete Nicolosi of Charleston SC, will protect his points lead over second place Bob Berbeco of Indianapolis, and defending series champion Arthur Kowitz of Florida.

The prototype electric motorcycles will reach speeds up to 140mph. The production based Brammo and Zero racebikes have proven very reliable, with excellent corner speed. In previous eMotoRacing events, the faster prototype bikes have held their own against the steady and predictable production racers. This years race at NJMP is expected to be hotly contested.
