TEAM ZEUS of the UNIVERSITY of CALGARY to contest eMotoRacing event at Miller Motorsports Park
On August 29 - 31, eMotoRacing will hold it's 8th race of the 2014 season at Miller Motorsports Park, Tooele, Utah. We have had a great stirring of rumors as to who will be in attendance. One thing is certain — there will be a good mix of contestants, including the official Brammo racing team, and Team “ZEUS” of the University of Calgary. “ZEUS” stands for “Zero Emission Ucalgary Superbike”, and the team is comprised of engineers, business and physics majors. The team will be racing their Generation I bike, which uses an Agni 95-R motor mounted to the frame of a 2004 Suzuki GSX 600, which was straight from the factory, and then stripped of its gasoline engine components. We are excited to see this eBike in action! To check out more about Team ZEUS, hit their website or facebook page.
The Miller Motorsports Park venue is a state of the art complex, and at nearly 4.5 miles, is the longest road racing facility in North America. The track boasts interestingly named corners such as “Scream”, “Diablo”, Bad Attitude” and “Satisfaction”. Opened in 2006, the track was originally a novelty track for Larry H. Miller, and designed by renowned engineer Alan Wilson. In addition to the upcoming eMotoRacing event, the park hosts both the AMA Superbike Championship and the World Superbike Championship.
About eMotoRacing: The eMotoRacing series aims to showcase the amazing innovation in the zero-emissions field. eMotoRacing spawned out of the vacuum left when other zero-emissions racing venues ceased operations in the U.S.A. Strategic partnership with AHRMA has given us desirable race tracks and reliable race dates.
