According to a report on Visordown.com, the TTXGP will be taking place as scheduled in June 12, 2009, despite concerns that there wouldn't be enough riders or vehicles ready in time to make the starting grid. We weren't aware that the event was ever in doubt, but we're certainly glad to hear it hasn't been canceled. According to Isle of Man Tourism and Leisure Minister Martyn Quayle:
I can tell you that we are so excited about this and we have had very warm endorsement of it. It is still an incredible achievement and people around the world are holding the Isle of Man in awe for holding the event and for supporting technological advancement.We share Quayle's anticipation, as a number of the competitors we've gotten to see look to be bringing some fast and exciting electric motorcycles to the event. Here's to some stiff zero-emission competition.
