TTXGP World Final at Albacete

Published: 16 December 2009

The grand final of the TTXGP 2010 series, in partnership with the European Motorcycle Union (UEM), will be held in October at Albacete, Spain.

Azhar Hussain organised the first "real" race of electric bikes on the most famous and historical motorcycle circuit, the TT in the Isle of Man and now he has convinced the UEM to organise the final event of the TTXGP as one of the important races during the European Championship in Albacete.

Hussain said, "We have a great affinity with the UEM in that they started from small beginnings and have developed into a professional organisation of the highest standing which contributes greatly to the development of motorsports.

"Their vision is to be commended and I greatly appreciate their kind words.

"I am sure that this partnership will be of the utmost benefit to the world of the eGrandPrix and all the teams and riders who are the green shoots now but will develop to be the strong roots for the next generation of motorsports."

UEM President, Vincenzo Mazzi, added: "In June this year, an entrepreneur, coming from a different sector than motorcycling, showed us that passion, strong belief in his ideas and long-sighted vision, could do something that many of us thought impossible."

"Electric racing has a bright future and will grow in parallel with more races, more circuits accommodating them and finally more motorcycles and more riders competing. UEM wants to be a world leader in helping in develop this technology."

The UEM unifies 47 member countries and is the largest Continental Union for motorcycling in the world and the largest partner of the FIM.

t was established in 1995 to further grow the motorcycling sport in Europe.
