For eScooters, the Race is On!

When one thinks of an eScooter, one is probably envisioning those pesky, skinny scooters that litter city streets after a short pay-per-minute ride.  The Scooter has grown up, thanks to eSC. 

What is eSC

eSC stands for Electric Scooter Championship.  The eSC was co-founded by a group led by motorsport entrepreneur, Hrag Sarkissian, Formula 1 broadcaster, Khalil Beschir and Formula E racer, Lucas di Grassi.  The eSC has dubbed their first race the ESkootr Championship. The race will be part of an international series, pitting riders against each other on special two-wheeled race scooters that can go up to 60 mph. The races will begin in 2021 in cities around the world. To keep informed of dates and riders follow eSC on Twitter.
