AHRMA Event to Feature eMotoRacing Varsity Challenge

(January 18, Knoxville, TN) High-tech electric motorcycles will charge up the 2024 American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) road racing season.

The 11th Annual eMotoRacing Varsity Challenge electric motorcycle road race will be part of rounds 11 and 12 of the 2024 AHRMA Bridgestone Tires National Historic Roadrace Series June 21-23 at New Jersey Motorsports Park, Millville, NJ.

Collegiate racing teams from the US and Canada will race their engineering student-built prototype electric race bikes in the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) Formula Lightning Series.

During 2023, the University of Michigan SPARK Atlas took first and second places overall in the AHRMA Formula Lightning Series competition with David McPherson piloting the prototype.

During 2024, the University of Michigan will have competition from Quebec’s University of Sherbrooke, Rochester Institute of Technology, Cornell University, and other university teams. Racing against these collegiate teams will be other private teams from across the US.

The university-based prototypes are purpose-built racing motorcycles and represent the latest in electric-powered motorcycle technology.

The AHRMA Formula Lightning series is the premier zero emissions motorcycle road racing series in the US. Bikes may be powered by any means of propulsion that does not emit exhaust, such as electricity, magnetism, gravity, flywheels, springs, etc.

“I’m excited to see what universities participate in the Varsity Challenge this year. Many of these bikes are ground up built prototypes and represent what the future will hold for electronic motorcycle racing.” said Bob Berbeco, AHRMA’s Varsity Challenge Series coordinator.

In addition to the Varsity Challenge, all teams are welcome to participate in any of the races within the 2024 Bridgestone Tires AHRMA Roadracing Series. The series schedule is located here – ahrma.org/schedules-results.
