A new type of racing, the eSkootr Championship (Electric Scooter Championship), is set to debut in the summer of 2021 and it has its first team, legendary British motorsport outfit Carlin.
Carlin will field three riders when the eSC series when it launches later in 2021. The team will announce its full eSkootr rider line-up ahead of a pre-season test program, which takes place in early summer.
The series utilizes high-speed, purpose-built race scooters capable of speeds reaching 100km/h (60mph) in major cities around the world.
“What really appeals to us about eSC is its affordability and accessibility,” said Trevor Carlin, Carlin Team Principal. “It really takes a new approach in terms of racing, technology and the overlap into real-life mobility.”
“We’re delighted that an organization of the prestige and success of Carlin has chosen to partner with us in the eSkootr Championship,” said Khalil Beschir, eSkootr Championship COO. “It shows how seriously we’re already being taken, and it’s a real validation of what we’re doing.
“We began talking with Trevor last year, and it quickly became apparent that he really understood and embraced the concept; he could see how his operation could become a part of it.
“As well as working with Carlin to supply them with eSkootrs and equipment, we’re undertaking final chassis prototype trials and talking to a number of other international teams. We’ll have some exciting further announcements very soon.”
