AHRMA Event to Feature eMotoRacing Varsity Challenge
(Knoxville, TN) – Cutting-edge electric motorcycles heat up the 2023 American Historic Racing Motorycycle Association (AHRMA) road racing season.
The 10th Annual eMotoRacing Varsity Challenge electric motorcycle road race will be part of rounds 13 and 14 of the 2023 AHRMA Bridgestone Tires Roadrace Series July 28 – 30 at Gingerman Raceway, in South Haven, MI.
Collegiate teams from the US and Canada will race their student-built prototype electric motorcycles in AHRMA’s Formula Lightning Series.
During 2022, the University of Michigan SPARK Atlas team took second and third place in the AHRMA Formula Lightning Series competition with David McPherson piloting the prototype at New Jersey Motorsports Park.
During 2023, 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 private teams from across the US.
The university-based prototypes are built from the ground up as race bikes and represent the latest in electric motorcycle racing 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. We’re looking forward to seeing what all the teams bring this year.
