Tandem Trips

Worlds First TTXGP in Less Than a Month!

Posted in Exotics, Motorsports by Me on May 14, 2009

The first TTXGP at the Isle of Man kicks off on the 12 of June and I can’t wait! This has the potential to be a über interesting kick in the pants for the two-wheeled alternative energy vehicles, not to mention the alternative energy industry in general.

Here’s the list of teams: Agni Motors, Barefoot Motors, Brammo, Brunel University, Cool World Team, Electric Motorsport, eRockit, EVOdesign, HTBLuVA TGM Racing, Imperial College, KillaCycle Racing, Kingston University, ManTTX Racing, Mission Motors, Motoczysz, Tork, XXL Racing and Zero Motorcycles.

Bike Magazine’s bioethanol-powered Trimph pictured above is not making a run for it in the modified Pro Class, but there will be other converted production bike in the race. If this thing is a success, and I think it will be, they will be holding bigger races in the future, with possible involvement by the big bike manufacturers.

For now, we’ll justy ignore the inviromental impact of creating all those batteries or growing all that biofuel and bask in the glory of these early days of altEnergy racing.
