Also this is more reachable for spectators as tracks can be built in small areas near people and it doesn't cause noise.

A clean, quiet alternative for the future
CAKE Worlds was created to demonstrate how the benefits of Cake’s electric motorcycles are able to transform two-wheeled racing, offering a future-proofed alternative to the receding world of fossil fueled racing. The silent, zero-polluting motorcycles are raced on tight, spectator-friendly tracks – that in turn can be built cost-efficiently in urban environments, further lowering the bar of entry to the sport.
“CAKE Worlds is all about spreading the joy of bike riding, proving that it is inclusive while showing that it’s possible to enjoy motorbike racing without polluting or disturbing the local community. With 70 percent of all motorsport tracks having closed their doors in the past 15 years, mainly due to issues of noise and pollution, we see a clear opportunity to establish a new racing format that everyone can enjoy", explained Stefan Ytterborn, founder and CEO of CAKE.
