Laguna Seca FIM e-Power Grid

UPDATE: FIM posted an updated list here. Pro Racing will not attend e-Power at Laguna Seca.

FIM will hold its first e-Power race in the United States at Laguna Seca in Monterey, California next week. Seca is not only one of the best known tracks in the US, it is also smack in the middle of Lithium Valley. There are some familiar names in the list and a few new ones. AMA pilot Aaron Gobert will be riding the just announced Brammo Empulse. Gobert is no stranger to Brammo’s fast bikes, he did some track testing time with the TTR before last year’s TTXGP.

Unfortunately, it seems Epo Bike might not make it due to airline tickets lost in a travel agency bankruptcy. This is really a tough break for the team and for the fans. The Epo-bike was upgraded and ready to take on the world with the same speed-through-light-weight philosophy that helped Tork win last weekend at the Snetterton TTXGP UK

If you are going to Seca I am jealous. Please feel free to rub it in but don’t expect me to like it. :D

Listen to Gobert’s thoughts on the TTR (the basis for the Empulse) in the video after the break.

Thanks for the tip Anon!
