The esc eSkooter Championship race scooter design
Williams Advanced Engineering developed the eSkootr Championship scooter prototype. Additionally, the S1-X features race car design and manufacturing techniques making this beast a well designed electric scooter. Equally important, the scooter is made with a carbon-fibre chassis frame and environmentally friendly natural-fibre bodywork. It’s bespoke, adjustable front and rear suspension elements are CNC-machined from aluminium. Clearly, it will be an absolute beast to rip around the track with.
With Dakota Schueltz, Lucas di Grassi as ambassadors, it’s sure to be pulling a lot of attention. Moreover, Mark asks if this event will be the F1 of electric scooters. Could this be the meet that changes perceptions on electric scooters as a viable mode of transport globally? Without a doubt, we are certainly hoping so.
