Brammo Supporting Darvill Racing Team In 2014 FIM eRoadRacing World Cup
Darvill Racing, the Isle of Man based team, will run two factory-supported privateer Brammo machines in the 2014 FIM eRoadRacing World Cup. One will be prepared in Prototype 2 (P2) form, while the other in eSuperStock (eSS) trim. The team will also field additional entries in national championships. Both bikes will be based on Brammo’s successful Empulse R street sports bike.
Preparation of the team’s first TTXP2 racer is currently underway, where it will then take on an extensive winter testing program before the team makes its FIM eRoadRacing debut at Circuit Zolder in Belgium in May. The team is currently in discussion with several guest ‘star’ riders and is expected to announce its line-up and main sponsor shortly.
“We’ve been considering a switch to ebikes for a while now and feel that the time is right for us to take on this new challenge,” said Team Principal Alex Aitchison.
“The championship rules allow privately run teams like ours to compete on a level playing field and we are confident that we have the experience and resources to step up and contribute to what is one of the world’s most exciting race series.”
