OPEN eSBK bosses have released entry information for their first race of the inaugural season as they join the Ducati Club races at TT Circuit Assen.
Riders and teams are set to descend on the Dutch track for the weekend of 24-26 May for the 40th edition of Europe’s biggest amateur race festival.
Now, with applications open for the very first round of the new eSBK championship, series director Jeroen Goudswaard says he’s aiming to spark a new generation of racing.
“This is very unique and the beginning of an era,” he said. “There are multiple classes to create a fair competition for all types of bikes: Zeros, Energicas, other brands and prototype superbikes.”
“And there will be a special circuit time reserved for electric motorcycles only.”
Goudswaard hopes that the open competition format, in which everyone with a race licence and an electric motorcycle can join, is vital to the growth of the championship.
“This is a very important aspect, since this enables more starting machines on the grid. The weekend contains five track sessions, which will give teams a lot of circuit time. We really think this makes it fun and exciting to join.”
Applications for teams and riders are now open, and will close on 4 March.
