VLISSINGEN – It’s not an April Fool’s joke. Vlissingen motocross star Nancy van de Ven will also race on a supersonic scooter this year. She is one of the shortlisted for the eSkootr Championship. At more than 100 km/h it will run on circuits in France, Italy, Spain and the United States.
The eSkootr championship is an extremely serious initiative. The device used for racing is a cross between a scooter and a scooter. The intention is that he will appear on the streets one day. The Italian manufacturer is promoting it this year by allowing thirty people from other sports to participate in an international championship. Van de Ven is the only one from the Netherlands.

English road racer Bradley Smith, who raced in MotoGP, approached Rinus van de Ven in 2021 to ask if his sister might be interested in taking part. The pair then had a test day in Malaga in December. The Zeelander was one of the fastest there.
