eSkootr Championship: 1st racing series for e-scooters
Over 16 hp, over 100 km / h fast
E-scooters are often criticized, but our cityscape can no longer be imagined without them. From 2021, the small e-scooters will even have their own racing series. Now the racing scooters have been presented
The e-scooter racing series should be based on the example of Formula E. It should be driven on street courses in the middle of big cities. Specially developed racing e-scooters, which reach speeds of over 100 km / h and are supposed to accelerate better than most sports cars, serve as racing devices. Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE), an offshoot of the Williams Formula 1 racing team, which already supplies electric racing series such as Formula E, Extreme E and ETCR, was won as a development partner for the racing machines.
For the first two years, WAE is to exclusively supply all teams with a standard chassis, a standard battery system and a standard electric drive train. The first prototypes are already in the test phase.
The new scooter racing series was launched by motorsport entrepreneur Hrag Sarkissian and the former racing driver and Formula 1 television expert Khalil Beschir. Formula E champion Lucas Di Grassi and ex-Formula 1 driver Alexander Wurz also sit in the organizer’s boat for the new eSkootr racing series. Di Grassi is to act as a sustainability ambassador and Wurz as a security ambassador.
So far, the organizers have not given details of how the races could run, where and when they will drive and which entry hurdles have to be overcome.
16.3 hp in the scooter
The racing cars have now been presented for this purpose – the S1-X scooters. Their chassis is made of carbon, the panels are made of a natural fiber laminate. The front and rear wheel suspensions are made of aluminum. There is a 6 kW electric motor in each wheel. The S1-X makes a whopping 16.3 hp. The power output on both wheels is harmonized by electronics.
The driver can temporarily override this system for specific driving maneuvers at the push of a button. Energy is provided by a 1.5 kWh lithium-ion battery. With the 35 kilogram scooter, speeds of over 100 km / h and inclines of up to 50 degrees should be possible. Disc brakes are used to decelerate on both wheels.
The first official test drives are scheduled to take place in spring 2021.
Even if a city scooter racing series sounds ridiculous at first, more than 16 hp in such a device is already an announcement. Over 100 km / h top speed make you sit up and take notice. We are looking forward to the first races.
