Our teams form an inclusive club of manufacturers, technical institutions and privateer constructors who are racing on the same track at the same time to be at the cutting edge of clean technology that powers the next generation of motorsport. The field is level, and the same rules apply to all competitors making this the most open competition that exists today.

The rules are very open and are designed to ensure the safety of those working at race tracks whilst giving maximum scope for innovative technology development, making this an exciting and engaging sport as well as pushing the boundaries of all the technologies used.

Racing is about power, control, good engineering and strategy with each round providing a unique challenge. Whether it be a mixed field including combustion engines or a challenging sprint race, racers must rise to the challenge and beat their competitors. Having just two wheels makes racing very exciting and arguably more thrilling; however the real advantage is that racing two wheels also uses less resources to refine, test technology and push the boundaries. You don’t need millions to invent a game changing idea.
