Open Moto X wants to make sure at least one electric motorcycle competes in the e-Miglia 2010 race.
But time and money are short.
Talk to the organisers about a two-wheeled entry and the rules.
|Item||Cost estimate (€)||Notes|
|Rider||travel to and from event + 3 days rally = minimum 5 days. Better 10 days for practice (can we find someone to ride for free?)|
|Bike Hire||minimum 5 days, better 9 to allow for some testing and practice (see above)|
|Entry to rally||1500|
|Communications||150||2x pay-as-you go mobile phones should be fine|
|Accommodation (or camper van hire) say €150/night)|
|Travel to and from the event (minimum two people?)||1000||depends on who/where + when|

Can a rider manage on their own? or do they need a support crew?
Drives the support truck/cam
- Camper van?

Find a _road legal_ electric motorcycleEdit
Mavizen - Looks like our best option. Definitely road legal in the UK. Need to check EU status. Short-term hire options?
eCRP - probably not road legal but a eCRP1.2 is available for €5000/race according to eCRP Racing's website
Brammo - road legal in the USA but not sure what the status is in the EU. IS time too short to get EU clearance for a special import?
Zero S - road legal in Germany/EU?
