Your Chance To Ride The eCRP 1.4 Electric Racebike
Energica, makers of the Vice World Champion eCRP 1.4 electric racebike, are offering at least four lucky fans a chance to ride the machine at the Modena Racetrack in Italy on June 15.

Included in the €205 ($266) package are unlimited laps around the track on your own motorcycle, plus three laps aboard the eCRP. Time permitting, two more laps are available for €100 ($130). Each eCRP will be fitted with on-board cameras to record the action, and you’ll be given all the files at the end of the day.
For more information and to enter, fill out the entry form at the bottom of this page no later than May 31. At least four participants are required for the event to take place, otherwise it will be cancelled and full refunds given to those who entered. Airfare and travel arrangements to/from the track are also not included.
