eSkootr Championship™ announces inaugural season calendar with London as first-ever electric scooter race location
The eSkootr Championship™ (eSC) has today confirmed exciting news ahead of its inaugural season, announcing that London will make history as the first-ever city to host an eSC racing event on 13/14 May.
As well as the UK, eSC can confirm five other countries that will host races in 2022, with the cities due to be announced shortly.
The groundbreaking new series, that will see riders compete against each other on electric scooters capable of reaching 100km/h, will have events at specially designed inner-city circuits in the UK, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain and the USA. Further locations will be added in future seasons.
Fast. Exciting. Dynamic. eSC is the first racing series for everyone, inspiring a new movement for safer, greener and more liveable cities. eSC riders are professional athletes from other sports as varied as skiing, surfing, motorcycles, BMX and stunt riders competing for individual and team championship glory whilst championing innovation for the future of micromobility.
Hrag Sarkissian, eSkootr Championship™ co-founder and CEO, said:
“This is a huge moment for eSC, and for sport, motorsport and the future growth of micromobility, as we announce the first destinations that will host our brand-new championship.
“eSC is a fan-first sport and our race locations will provide the perfect backdrop for a spectator and entertainment experience like never before, with each event embracing the urban culture and associated lifestyle. At the same time, London, and the other cities we will announce shortly, are all incredibly progressive, with an appreciation for the real world relevance eSC brings as they seek to address the implications of a rapidly changing mobility landscape.”
Khalil Beschir, eSkootr Championship™ co-founder and COO, added:
“Our mission at eSC is to showcase close, exhilarating racing that is accessible to all and a platform for promoting sustainable, safe and more affordable transportation in urban areas.
“London and our other locations are committed to eSC’s vision for events to be an inner-city festival of racing and entertainment, which makes them the perfect host-city partners. They each share our passion for providing a new, fan-first event that inspires a new movement for safer, greener and more liveable cities.”
