Italian Job for TTXGP

Italy joins UK, USA, Canada, France and Spain on zero emission race calendar

FOUR DATES and venues are now confirmed for TTXGP Italy, from June to September, 2010. Magione (27 June), Franciacorta (25 July and 5 September) and Mugello (26 September). Mr Paolo Sesti, President of Federazione Motociclistica Italiana that leads the official organisation of the motorcycle sports activity in Italy, said, “We are pleased to officially introduce electric sports activity into the Italian 2010 race calendar. Until now we have been involved in some electric racing experiments but the rapidly developing technology in electric motorcycles, in terms of battery efficiency and weight and dimension, opens a whole new world. We also hope that our decision can contribute to the development of zero carbon, clean emission vehicles and that the advanced technology developed in this form of motorsports will accelerate the presence of green vehicles in our everyday lives.” Azhar Hussain, eGrandPrix, said, “The Italian championship is very important to us in that it brings to the eGrandPrix the enormous history of engineering and style that the Italians do so well. It also means that, in 2010, electric racing will have a representation of the greatest magnitude at our TTXGP Final/UEM 2010 in Albacete on 24 October. We applaud all those who have helped to make this happen and are reassured that the pioneering spirit is very much at large, across the world.” Italian bikes could be racing at the events; ground breaking Italian manufacturer, CRP Racing, is building electric super sports motorcycles exclusively for TTXGP for its 2010 series. The ‘Italian’ style bike, the eCRP1.0, will launch at the Motorsports Industry Association (MIA) event Cleaner Racing Conference on 13 January 2010 at NEC in Birmingham.TTXGP has already announced a string of international dates in the UK, USA, Canada, France and Spain.
