The eSkootr Championship races into Sion, Switzerland, for the second round of the inaugural eSC season. Hot on the trail of the Championship opener in London two weeks ago, the 30 eSC riders will race around a purpose-built track winding through the heart of the picturesque Swiss city. Thousands of spectators will crowd into the city centre to watch the free event and many more can tune in on TV and live streaming on the App. The eSkootr Championship races form part of the International Transition Festival held in Sion from May 24-29 which celebrates the move towards a more sustainable society, focusing on a variety of themes from daily life including mobility and transportation.
Each race weekend starts with all riders competing in a series of heats. 24 riders will qualify and advance to the quarter finals, with the top three from each quarter final to the semis. Then, the top three from each semi final will make up the grid for the deciding race – the final.
