eSkootr Championship has generated multiple reactions since it was announced its entry into the sustainable motorsports world, as the intention to make a difference, coupled with the fact of using an ‘atypical’ vehicle for racing, quickly attracted attention. However, to date, the names of the main protagonists were unknown.
Several months went by that included important revelations. High-caliber hires, format, technical specifications of the scooters and locations where they will be raced, were part of the news that eSC unveiled little by little while the curiosity to know the names of the riders who will be aboard the S1-X for the inaugural season remained expectant.
Male and female riders will integrate a sport that will expose a new way of looking at electric scooters, while raising the flag for gender equality and conditions in motorsports. Elise Christie, Tre Whyte and Billy Morgan appear on the list of 30 confirmed riders to compete in eSkootr Championship alongside 27 other challengers.
