A group of Formula 1 and Formula E racers, in particular Lucas Di Grassi and Alex Wurz, decided to organize a new discipline in which participants will pilot custom electric scooters. The series will be called the Electric Scooter Championship, or abbreviated eSkootr. Debut competition should take place in 2021.
Unfortunately, there is no detailed information about eSkootr yet. In the video you can see that the riders will ride on city streets in electric scooters at speeds up to 100 km / h in special neon overalls. The organizers say that electric scooter hauls are much more affordable than participating in other types of motorsport. In addition, such stages are more versatile, so athletes from various disciplines will be able to participate in them – race racers, cyclists, skaters, snowboarders, motorcyclists and even cyber racers.
It is possible that the eSkootr race will take place on the city Formula E tracks. It is possible that the scooter trips will be part of the support races as part of the Formula E Grand Prix.
