Later today, TTXGP‘s electric motorcycle road racing series, eGrandPrix, will be announcing three additional venues for 2010. Virginia International Raceway, on August 13-15; England’s historic Brand’s Hatch on October 2-3; and Toronto’s Mosport International on July 8-11. The addition of two more North American venues (added to Infineon in May) and a fourth UK round (Cadwell Park, Snetterton and Castle Combe are already on the calendar, as is the Isle of Man TT) serves to further legitimize eGrandPrix as the premier electric racing series after the FIM stole its rules and launched a rival series, FIM e-Power. In addition to these venues, the eGrandPrix has also secured the participation of Zero, Mission Motors, Team Agni and CRP Racing, with more teams expected to announce their participation soon.

Update: It’s VIR, not Virginia Motor Speedway as previously reported.

  • Electric Cycles?

    Wow – an electric cycle race. Gee I can’t wait to see a bunch of electric shavers with wheels racing.

      Because electric motorcycle racing is awesome. Real technological innovation that will affect the entire future of transportation as we know it is happening now and, for once, it’s happening on two wheels.

    Virginia Motor Whatway?

    Lame.

    I’m not ready to buy an electric motorcycle but I will travel a few hours to see this race. This is the cutting edge of engineering and technology. It’s not how fast they go, it’s how they go fast. I am also surprised this isn’t at VIR.

    Given that Virginia Motor Speedway is a half-mile dirt trsck, and Aug. 13-15 corresponds to the AMA dates at VIR, I will hazard a guess that a correction is forthcoming…

      Yeah, you’re right. Thanks for pointing that out. Checked with TTXGP and they’d issued the wrong name.
