MotoAmerica: Energica Returning To Super Hooligan With Tytlers Cycle And Mesa

© 2024, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc. From a press release issued By Energica Motor Company, S.p.A.:

The Rebel Returns – Destination Daytona

One year later, the all-electric, Eva Ribelle RS with the readily available KCC (Kit Corsa Clienti) returns to where it all began, ready to spearhead yet another attack on a whole field of ICE [Internal Combustion Engine] motorcycles. In what will be the first of five events for this year’s Roland Sands Design (RSD) Super Hooligan National Championship, run in conjunction with MotoAmerica, Energica partners once again with the top-level Tytlers Cycle Racing Team and with Stefano Mesa, who rode the Ribelle to what was the first-ever podium for an electric vehicle against traditionally powered machines (Austin, Race One) as well as rewriting how quick an electric motorcycle can be at the iconic Laguna Seca Raceway – all while finishing the debut season in fourth place overall.

But last year is in the books, and it is now time to focus on what is ahead. The 2024 Super Hooligan National Championship is shaping up to be as competitive as ever, with some of the best manufacturers of full-handlebar, naked bikes and a list of riders so long that at some events, one race is not enough to fit all of them.

With some good amount of experience in the bags, Mesa, Tytlers Cycle Racing and Energica are ready for this new challenge. It will not be easy (it never is), but that is what competition is all about, as racing has always been the best benchmark for the present, and the future.

The Daytona International Speedway, with its never-ending banking, is waiting for the Rebel to return. It is only a matter of days now, and the air is electric. The two races of the Super Hooligan National Championship at the iconic venue in Daytona Beach, Florida, will take place on Friday 7th (1:45 pm) and Saturday 8th of March (10:10 am). All times ET.

The 2024 Super Hooligan National Championship races are once again LIVE on MotoAmerica’s YouTube channel and Facebook page, as well as on demand shortly after each encounter.

Michael Kiley – Tytlers Cycle Racing Team Principal

“The Hooligans class has grown exponentially through the years as seen by the number of entrants and the variety of bikes. We are very grateful to Roland Sands and MotoAmerica for the opportunity to compete and to Energica for building a bike that has allowed us to be competitive. We’ve been writing the book on racing electric bikes and having fun doing it. At the end of the day we want a shot at the top of the podium in a fair race. We are happy to have that.”

Giampiero Testoni – Energica CTO

“We’re happy to be back with Tytlers Cycle Racing and Stefano Mesa in the 2024 Super Hooligan National Championship. Last year was a memorable one, with results that went even beyond our initial expectations. The series is going from strength to strength and there will be new manufacturers and international riders on the grid, so we expect some stiff competition. We are looking forward for the action to get underway and see where we’re at, and then build from there.”
