The TTXGP has been steadily growing a fan base over the last few years and now it looks like the electric motorcycle racing championship is officially here to stay. The TTXGP has just inked its first multi-year contract which will see the electric racing series head to Assen from now until at least 2014.
“The Dutch round will be an amazing experience and truly memorable one in the TTXGP Calendar. The Atmosphere at Assen is unrivaled and the GP course is thrilling for both riders and spectators,” said TTXGP founder, Azhar Hussain. “We are also very pleased to have found our first long term home for TTXGP. This will see TTXGP committed for the next 3 years to partner with LDP to build a world class platform for racing and innovation not just on the track but also with the City of Assen.”
The TTXGP will be partnering with GAMMA Racing Day, Europe’s biggest combined annual racing event. With an expected crowd of more than 50,000 people, the TTXGP will have a prime opportunity to display the power of electric vehicles.
Bertram Buikema said on behalf of GAMMA Racing Day owner LDP International b.v.: “To market an exciting and high performance vehicle you go racing. Manufacturers and dealers tend to eventually shift their attention in racing and marketing to machinery and technology they are most likely to sell on the streets. With the current financial stimulations from governments worldwide we expect the market for electric road vehicles to grow. One of the leading conventional manufacturers Honda’s recent RC-E prototype release confirms this development. With the TTXGP round at Europe’s biggest combined racing event we offer a great marketing tool for any brand associated with electric mobility and its technology.”
The Assen round will be part of the TTXGP Euro series. The event will be held on August 5th.
