CAKE the Swedish maker of premium lightweight, electric motorcycles, today announced the birth of a brand new, global, electric motorcycle racing series - The CAKE Worlds One Design Race. Building on the success of 2021’s CAKE Kalk One Design Race, the CAKE Worlds Race 2022 will be a global celebration of electric two-wheeled racing, consisting of four events. The premiere event, the CAKE Worlds Del Mar presented by West Coast EV, will take place at the scenic Del Mar Fairgrounds, north of San Diego, CA, during the last weekend of April.
“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.
Thanks to light, torquey and snappy bikes, the format is available, exciting and compact for riders as well as for audience and media”, says Stefan Ytterborn, founder and CEO of CAKE.
“Aside from attracting some of the world's best athletes, it's truly gratifying to have partners like Fox Racing, joining CAKE, on the journey forward. The chance of electric MX booming, attracting current riders as well as newcomers to the sport, for the next golden era is clear.”
The CAKE Worlds race is a One Design race where all riders will compete using identical equipment - Kalk OR Race. There will be two main competitions at each event. In the CAKE Worlds Invitational Race, professional riders from various two-wheeled disciplines will compete against each other, in a 4X format, on an invitational basis. In addition to this, Cake will also offer anyone, no matter their background or two-wheeled pedigree, to sign up for a chance to prove their worth in the CAKE Worlds Open Championship - ultimately competing for a chance to represent their country in the CAKE Worlds Finals, to be held later this year at the Fox Raceway in Pala, California. This democratization of competitive riding is an industry-first, fully in line with Cake’s motto of making electric racing truly available to everyone.
First stop - Del Mar, CA.
The first CAKE Worlds race of 2022 will take place in Del Mar, CA. Over the course of two days, visitors will be able to experience firsthand the latest and greatest in two-wheeled electric vehicles, 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. The winner of each category will automatically win a fully sponsored entry in the CAKE Worlds Finals in Pala, CA, and also get to ride home on a brand new CAKE Makka Flex bike - the latest member in the Cake family of two-wheeled urban movers. Entrance for spectators will be free of charge.
