In a drama-filled race that saw certain electric motorcycles hitting speeds of 165 miles per hour on the demanding Daytona International Speedway, Steve Atlas was first to pass by the checkered flag, giving Team Icon Brammo the win in the 2012 TTXGP World Championship. The previous two season-topping events had been won by Münch Racing.
Team Icon Brammo
The TTXGP North America and Australian series finished up last weekend with Team Icon Brammo riders winning both the race and the championship in the northern hemisphere, and Team Catavolt grabbing the glory Down Under.
OK, so the electric bike had a ringer on it. Big deal.
The first race of the 2012 TTXGP electric motorcycle racing series gets underway this weekend at Infineon Raceway. Along with the original open and TTX75 classes, the organization has added an eSuperstock category that should open the door to more participation.
