The FIM eRoad Racing World Cup was a championship of electric motorcycle road racing, organised by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) and was only held in this form in 2013. It followed the unification of the former TTXGP series with the FIM "e-Power" electric motorcycle racing series.[1]

History[edit]

2013 World Cup season[edit]

The 2013 eRoadRacing World Cup was planned to consist of 4 races in Europe and 4 in North America, with a world final in Asia. However, only 6 events (4 in Europe and 2 in North America) did actually take place. The remaining races had to be cancelled because time constraints didn't allow the organizers to find suitable venues.[2] Since there was no World Final, two separate winners were announced for the two series: Ho Chi Fung (Zongshen, China) for the European series and Eric Bostrom (Icon Brammo, USA) for the North American series.[3]

Cancellation[edit]

There was a road map for the following two years, that would eventually have led to a full World Championship. However, the series was not continued in 2014. [4]
