CAKE announces the birth of a new, global, electric motorcycle racing series – The CAKE Worlds One Design Race. The series will begin and finish in the US, and riders interested in competing are still able to enroll here. A total of 64 slots are available.
After the company’s success with their 2021’s CAKE Kalk One Design Race, CAKE now plans to launch the Worlds Race 2022 in a celebration of electric 2-wheeled racing. The new Cake Racing series aims to crown 2 world champions, men and women in a unisex race format, and Fox Racing will take the official apparel partnership of CAKE Worlds racing series.
Consisting of four events, the premiere event is the CAKE Worlds Del Mar presented by West Coast EV, that will take place at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, north of San Diego, CA, during April 30th to May 1st.
Followed by the event, CAKE plans for an additional 2 races, without having the finalized schedule, but planning for a round in Val Thorens, France preliminarily set for July 16th-July 17th, and another round in Gotland, Sweden preliminarily set for August 19th-20th.
The race will then come back to the US, for a final round on September 2nd at Fox Raceway, Pala, California.
“CAKE One Design Worlds is an initiative to promote inclusive, silent and clean racing in the aftermath of racing tracks shutting down in the past 15 years, due to disturbance and pollution.Stefan Ytterborn, founder and CEO of CAKE.
Thanks to light, torquey and snappy bikes, the format is available, exciting and compact for riders as well as for audience and media”
The CAKE Worlds race is a One Design race where all riders will compete using identical equipment – Kalk OR Race. With two main competitions at each event, professional riders from various 2-wheeled disciplines will compete against each other, in a 4X format, on an invitational basis.
In addition to that, Cake will open the competition to all riders, regardless of their background or two-wheeled pedigree, allowing anyone to sign up and enroll for a chance to prove their worth in the CAKE Worlds Open Championship.
Ultimately the winners will have a chance to represent their country in the CAKE Worlds Finals, to take place later this year at the Fox Raceway in Pala, California. This kind of open competition riding is an industry-first, and in-line with Cake’s motto of making electric racing available to everyone.
First stop – Del Mar, CA.
The first CAKE Worlds race of 2022 will take place in Del Mar, California. Check out the pro’s competing in the North American Invitational Championship or apply for a chance to race for glory in the North American Open Championship.
