Former motorcycle Grand Prix winner and 24 Hours of Le Mans participant, Didier de Radiguès, has become an 80 Day Race ambassador. The 57-year-old Belgian holds the current lap record for electric motorcycles at Spa-Francorchamps. He also advises the automobile and motorcycle industry on sustainable topics.
De Radiguès made his motorcycle Grand Prix debut in 1980, won four Grands Prix and is still Belgium’s most successful GP rider. After his motorcycle career he enjoyed racing Le Mans Prototypes and participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans five times. Nowadays he runs a motorcycle riding school in France and gives commentary on MotoGP races. In addition to that, he supports automobile and motorcycle companies on their mobility strategy with sustainability as one of the key subjects.
Didier de Radiguès: “Adventure, innovation, sustainably mobility and renewable energy are topics that interest me a lot since I’ve decided to quit racing a few years ago. That’s why one day I decided to do something with electric. I targeted an electric lap record and succeeded at Spa-Francorchamps. 80 Day Race shares my passion and takes electric mobility around the globe. I’m honoured to be part of it.”
