The TTXGP and FIM ePower electric motorcycle racing series have both announced their 2011 calenders. Along with an amazing assortment of venues comes news the two organizations may be holding "joint rounds," including a "unifying" season-ending final. This means teams from both series will be competing together on the same track while earning points towards their respective championships. We believe the end goal is to combine the two and form a single super-electric series in 2012.

So far, the two common locations on their 2011 schedules are Donington Park in Britain on the weekend of the 20th of August and LeMans in France in late September. American fans hoping to see teams from both series mixing it up on this side of the Atlantic should also have their hopes realized, possibly in July, at a track yet to be announced.

Click on past the break to see both the TTXGP and FIM e-Power calenders. Additions and confirmations are still forthcoming, so be careful about making travel plans right now. Preceding the schedules, we have posted the statement regarding collaboration that accompanied each organization's announcement.
