Featured In the August 2022 issue of Roadracing World:

When Editor-At-Large Michael Gougis interviewed Energica USA CEO Stefano Benatti, he hinted at the next racing project for the company’s electric motorcycles.

We now know that project was to enter an Energica in the Roland Sands Design (RSD) Super Hooligan race during the MotoAmerica event weekend at Weather Tech Raceway Laguna Seca and compete head-to-head against gasoline-fueled motorcycles.

By all accounts the effort was a success and may lead to even more electric racing…

It was an exercise in adaptation for racer Stefano Mesa, but he showed the potential of electric racing machines when he raced an Energica Eva Ribelle RS streetbike against gas-powered bikes in the MotoAmerica RSD Super Hooligans class and ran in the top six for most of the race. It’s all in the latest issue of Roadracing World!
