Carina Munte, Co-Founder & Chief Championship Officer of E-Xplorer said: “I am so pleased to share the inaugural calendar of the FIM E-Xplorer World Cup. The fact that we will be able to bring the thrill of electric bikes to fans across the world and showcase the skills of these incredible female and male riders makes me very proud. We are excited to work with the FIM, the teams, the riders and our local partners to deliver exceptional events and take this new discipline to huge heights. This is just the start of our electrifying journey!”
Jean-Paul Gombeaud, FIM Sports & E-Bike Director added: “The initial test that took place in France earlier this year proved a real success and has put strong foundations in place for an inaugural series that will boast no less than six events spread across three different continents. The 2023 schedule that will run from May to November makes great logistical sense for the teams and sends out a bold message for the status of electric motorcycle racing. On behalf of the FIM I want to thank our promoter and all the key stakeholders for their hard work in bringing this exciting series to life.”
