Charles’s job involves taking care of the technical rules for all the disciplines- 50 different championships covering everything from road racing to cross-country rally racing. He is also the Operations Manager for ePower, the FIM’s electric motorcycle racing series. I sat down with him at the Laguna Seca round to find out more about FIM’s interest in electric racing. I saved it until now, because it’s nice to have some racing news in the off-season.
If you’re anywhere near Monterey, CA, you’re in luck. As a support race for MotoGP, the ePower TTXGP race will be held this Sunday, July 29th at the spectacular Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway.

This post was written by Brandon Miller, a member of the Electric Cowboys EV racing team. Brandon was at this weekend’s REFUEL event, a racing event at the famed Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca for electric vehicles only. This is his firsthand account of the action.

The first practice session was uneventful for most, but Thad Wolff’s Moto Electra motor caught fire, forcing him to ride into the gravel at Turn 4. Another bike that was on fire, but in a good way, was the Mission R. Because this is a brand-new bike which had yet to turn a wheel, many people had been doubtful of its potential.
The excitement is building as teams fill the paddock today. TTXGP has just released the official entry list, with nine bikes entered in the premier class and three in the TTX75. Already the electric bikes are turning heads and sparking curiosity among the MotoGP and AMA race teams.
Electric race cars are making major progress in terms of speed and longevity, and one of the leaders in this field is Kleenspeed. This past weekend at the ReFuel SportElectric TT event, the Kleenspeed team beat their previous speed record by four seconds.
When I heard about the Refuel event, a free track day and time trial at Laguna Seca, it was literally a dream come true. I have long been a devoted aficionado of the legendary corkscrew. Laguna Seca has a strict 92 dB sound limit except for major races, like MotoGP. This is due to the fact that some developer was able to trick a lot of golfers and other such genteel folk into buying property and playing a game that requires absolute silence next to a racetrack. So most race cars and motorcycles have to do obscene things to their vehicles in order to pass the sound check, or else go home and forfeit a $300+ track day.
