Home Made Electric Bike Race - Would you come?

I am organising a bike festival in the New Forest in August (http://www.bigbikebash.co.uk/) and one of our big sponsors wants to hold a home made electric bike race. I am happy to do this as they will be providing great prizes and a demo fleet but know nothing about home made electric bikes or their riders.

We haven't nailed down the format yet but it will probably be a 1 hour endurance on fairlt mild off road terrain (grass and gravel tracks)

Is this the kind of event you lot would like?

Would you come along*?

*There is also a beer festival and live music festival if that makes any difference.

If it were in my area, and I thought I could win a good prize, I would definitely come. I think there should be e-bike races because it's a way to prove and improve the technology.

Much more eco-friendly than car/motorcycle racing too.

I am sure it will be worth coming over to the UK just for this! ;-)

There will be prizes
