Chip Yates sent out the following info on another video from their race last weekend. He's claiming this is the "historic first electric versus gas bike race" ... well, he was careful to insert that word "Superbike". He learns. Last fall Team Electra took their 2010 TTXGP bike to a gas bike race and raced and won. (see Team Electra in history-making win of electric motorcycles against gas bikes)
