#electric #FIM – As you may gather form the title, I am not amused. I planned to spend the weekend covering the 1st leg of the FIM e-Power race, electric race motorcycle, in the world championship.
To my surprise, and dismay, there are only three teams present at Magny-Cours. I heard from the stewards that it’s an improvement, since last year there were only 2 electric motorcycles.
It’s a pity that FIM is not throwing in a lot of their weight to promote the category. Paying for teams to attend (like the USA ones), would make the event much more interesting. I for one, am not planning to get up early in the morning to see the qualifiers or even the race, since it’s not a real race if there are only 3 bikes. It’s more a comical farce.
