The team behind the eSkootr Championship (eSC) has announced the establishment of a new governing body for a new category of micromobility sport.
Launched to coincide with the inaugural eSkootr race in London this weekend, the Commission for Micromobility and Sport will regulate for sporting fairness and safety, and aims to transfer lessons from the track to the real world through ambitious research, educational and advocacy programmes.
Former F1 driver and leading motorsport and road safety campaigner, Alex Wurz, has been appointed as President of the Commission.
One of the first initiatives of the Commission will be its New Mobility Forum on Friday 13 May, organised in partnership with Zag Daily. The Forum will bring together leaders from across the transport sector to debate on key issues and innovations in new mobility.
President of the Commission for Micromobility and Sport, Alex Wurz, commented: “This week in London, the inaugural round of the eSkootr Championship will showcase not only a brand-new sport, but a sport that will inspire a new movement for safer, more sustainable and more liveable cities.
“I’m proud to be a Co-Founder of eSC, and its Safety Ambassador, and to further demonstrate my belief in its real world relevance to safety, sustainability and technology by bringing together this inspiring group of leaders to promote the safe and sustainable development of micromobility in sport and urban micromobility.”
