According to a “tweet” by Brammo CEO Craig Bramscher, the Brammo Best Buy Racing Team will not be going to the eGrandPrix in Lexington, Ohio next month. Bramscher indicated that the race conflicted with the product launch of the Enertia motorcycle, which goes on sale next month at the Portland, Oregon Best Buy, with an expected rollout to additional Best Buys on the West Coast after that.
It’s a disappointment for racing fans, of course, but in the bigger picture, it’s a good thing. The bigger picture is about getting EVs on the street. There will be time, soon enough, for the excitement (and incidental benefits, such as technological advances) of racing.
UPDATE: Bramscher just tweeted that the company is “still working on some TTR racing.”
