You Write the Rules – TTXGP 2011
One week before the 2009 TTXGP at Isle Of Man, Ultimate Motorcycling interviewed Michael Czysz at the Miller Motosports Park WSBK round and got his thoughts about alternative energy and electric powered motorcycles. After mentioning the e1pc had 15 miles of testing, Czysz summed up the Alternative Fuel market and the push to make an electric race bike in 6 months by saying “Most of the motorsports industry was taken by surprise how quick the market is available for this”.
FIM, the worlds largest road racing governing body quickly teamed up with TTXGP to leverage their electric motorcycle racing experience and later broke off creating thier own e-Power series.
For 2010 we have 2 paralellel alternative energy race series at different venues with almost identical rules. Azhar Hussain and his team wrote these rules with the help of industry experts such as Craig Vetter, an expert in streamlining, to help get the most out of electric power in the safest way possible.
Now Azhar is looking to race enthusiasts to help bring the race rules to the next level for 2011 and further set the TTXGP apart from the FIM. eGrandPrix set up a wiki where anyone with a computer can modify the rules and make suggestions for additions and enhancements. Harry Mallin (aka brammofan and eMotoRules)was brought on to moderate and keep the ball rolling. Have a look at the eMotoRules blog for more information and tips on how to get started.
