Crikey! The eFX Championship is bringing electric motorcycle racing to Australia in 2011. The love child of the TTXGP and the Australian FX-Superbike Championship, the new series will adopt existing TTXGP rules and also feature the original class as well as the new TTX75 class. Like the other regional championships, the winners will have the opportunity to compete in the TTXGP World Series Final.

The action starts on the last weekend of April at Wakefield Park Raceway in New South Wales with a "test session." If you're lucky enough to be in Australia and can't make it to a race, you'll be able to watch them – including the World Series Final – on the free-to-air SBS Speedweek as well as the Fox cable network. We know there are a lot of electric racing fans Down Under and look forward to seeing the teams that emerge to take part. Hit the jump for the official press release and schedule.
