Electric off-road enthusiasts, get ready for another season of electrifying all-terrain motorcycle racing. Now slated for its second season of races, the FIM E-Xplorer World Cup is getting another edition in 2024.
The off-road racing series started last year, 2023, and it was deemed enough of a success to warrant another season of sustainable racing. The announcement was made on Friday, November 10, 2023, outlining several locations and dates that are set for next year, 2024. Five events will include three double-headers planned in two continents.
Valentin Guyonnet, FIM E-Xplorer Chief Executive Officer and co-founder, said: “We are delighted with the first year of FIM E-Xplorer, and now our attention is fully on a successful 2024 season. It is the time for sustainable sport to have its day.”
There will be male and female categories for the races, with each rider in each team promoting sustainability in addition to celebrating the sport of off-road racing. The new racing series found itself in Spain, Switzerland, France, and Sardinia last year, and 2024 looks quite promising given that the the World Cup will be taking its electrifying exploits to Asia this time around.
