"We are convinced that very shortly the motorcycle World Championships will be accessible to non-polluting engines” says FIM boss
FIM President, Vito Ippolito, said: “The FIM recognises the importance of this area that is evolving very quickly. The future of the sport depends on our capacity as well as that of the manufacturers to innovate quickly. We are convinced that very shortly the motorcycle World Championships will be accessible to non-polluting engines.”
Event organiser and TTXGP founder Azhar Hussein said: “This our first big step to building a championship. It is a logical move for motorsport and society as we progress from a petroleum to more efficient, sustainable, intelligent and ultimately responsible energy management. Motorsport drove the first boom in personal transportation, and we can now be confident it will drive the second ecologically responsible boom, so we are very proud to have the support of the FIM in this endeavour. Our aim is to provide a platform, a competitive environment that will drive low-carbon technological innovation forward in form factors that are relevant to society as road transport, proving that clean-emission transport technologies have matured and can be fun, fast and exciting."
Over 10 teams from all over the world have confirmed they'll be taking part: with representatives from the USA, UK, India, Germany and Austria.
