“We have a great history of close racing at Mosport, and we look forward to growing this unique event along with TTXGP in the coming years. TTXGP adds another element to the Superbike program, and cutting edge technology is always popular with our sports bike enthusiast crowd.”

Shortly after the Mosport announcement, Virginia International Raceway was confirmed as the third venue for TTXGP North American circuit, with electric motorcycles racing there August 13-15 as part of the AMA Pro Superbike Championship. A fourth North American round is TBD, while TTXGP organizers also have a another round pending in their UK eGrandPrix series, having secured three venues thus far, as well as a TTXGP race at the Isle of Man for the second year.
