Some Answers And More Questions For The 2010 TT Zero

Today is Race day! Canceled due to bad weather. Latest schedule puts TT Zero at 11 AM CST.

Yesterday A&R presented the question of whether MotoCzysz would streamline the e1pc. As luck would have it this week is very busy and I don’t have much time to write about TT Zero. Here are a few more questions that will have a serious impact on the outcome of the zero emission race at the Isle Of Man.

Where’s Jenny Tinmouth’s Agni?

Team Agni is fielding two teams for 2010 TT Zero. Rob “Bullet” Barber is back to defend his 2009 TTXGP title. The second rider Jenny Tinmouth, the fastest woman around the Mountain Course, has not been seen on an Agni bike yet. Due to technical issues her bike was not ready for either practice or qualifying. Insiders report Team Agni is confident the bike will be ready for tomorrow’s 4:30 PM (IOM Time) TT Zero Final.

Hit the break for more…

Will Agni Streamline the tail section?

The bike we saw in the second practice session will not have any alterations to streamlining according to Agni PR. They are currently crunching the numbers on the bikes performance and are happy with the performance of the fairing. A&R notes that their lap time is down from last years average time and their bike currently torn apart in the pits.

How will Jenny Tinmouth and a second Agni affect the outcome?

If the dustbin happens to cause issues with speed there is a chance Jenny might take second place putting Rob Barber in third. The ManTTx bike was within 1 minute of Barber in the second practice and if they have something in reserve might challenge for second or third. So there is a chance Rob Barber will be squeezed off the podium.

Of course I am assuming no one has any technical issues causing a DNF and none of the other entries have a great race. It should be awesome to watch read about anyway, stay tuned.

Here is the best place to see the status of the race as it unfolds if your not in the UK or on the Isle when it starts at 10:30 AM CST.


Also watch the #ttzero tag on twitter where a lot of conversation ususally happens in real time.

Keep an eye on Plug Bike and the following blogs this moring for TT Zero coverage, pictures and video. Hopefully some day when technology gets there we can watch it live…
