Stark issued a statement, saying, “Brunell made history by clinching the first-ever track racing championship win on an electric vehicle versus combustion. This groundbreaking achievement marks a significant milestone in the evolution of electric technology in motorsport especially for Stark Future, the innovative company that defied skeptics to pave the way for this historic win.”

After 10 years of fighting for a Championship victory, London-born Brunell showcased his skill and tenacity aboard his Stark Varg. With double points on offer, Brunell clinched third overall in the Pro main event, winning his first-ever British Arenacross title by 34 points.

“The victory not only highlighted Brunell’s prowess and patience as a rider but also served as a testament to the cutting-edge technology and unwavering determination of Stark Future in pushing the boundaries of what’s possible,” said Stark in a release.

“Under ACU Regulations, the 2024 British Arenacross Championship marked the inaugural occasion where electric motorcycles competed directly with combustion engines in such a high-stakes competition. The challenge was immense, with many doubting the capability of the Stark Varg to compete at such a high level. Brunell’s victory unequivocally demonstrates that electric technology is not only competitive but also capable of succeeding in fair and transparent competition, earning its rightful place alongside the dominant combustion counterparts in the industry.”

“This is more than we ever imagined,” said Anton Wass, CEO & Founder of Stark Future “Thank you, Jack, for making this a reality. We couldn’t have dreamed for more. Jack is the first rider in history to ever win a championship on an electric bike against combustion in any series!” CN
