MotoCzysz Wins The 2010 TT Zero
American electric motorcycle builder MotoCzysz has taken the top step of the podium at this year’s TT Zero race in the Isle of Man, they almost claimed the first ever 100mph lap (average speed) for which the Isle of Man government offered a £10,000 prize for the first team that hits the mark on an electric motorcycle. MotoCzysz recorded an average lap time of 96.82mph over the 37.7 mile course setting a total time of 23:22.89, American rider Mark Miller was piloting the futuristic zero emissions EP1C motorcycle and word from the pit lane has it that he still had a fair bit of battery power left after crossing the finish line.
Briton Rob Barber rode into second place on the Team Agni Z1 bike, he was 1:58.30 off the pace of the MotoCzysz EP1C and he was followed across the line by James McBride on the ManTTx machine. The ManTTx bike was built by a group of plucky Brits on a limited budget so pulling off a top 3 finish was a hell of a result.
