TTXGP race results, won by Team Agni

Team Agni wins inaugural TTXGP

They were in the Pro class (money is no limit) and turned in a 87.434 miles/hr time over the 1 lap. XXL Racing came in second, 77.841 miles/hr. Brammo came in third, 75.350 miles/hr

In the Open class Barefoot motors came in first, 62.219 miles/hr. TORK second at 60.475 miles/hr.

Two riders were disqualified on technicalities. One of them (Electric Motorsport) would have won the Open class. Apparently it's being appealed.

TTXGP: Rob Barber makes history

Maybe the disqualification was overturned:

Manx resident Chris Heath was initally delighted to secure victory in the Open class on board the Electric Motorsport machine, was later disqualified and then reinstated as the winner.

Heath's result was temporarily disregarded but organisers reinstated him as he was unaware riders must sound their horns when under yellow flags.

Chris Petty (Barefoot Motors) inherited the victory but was then moved back to second with John Crellin (TORK) third.

TTXGP: Rob Barber takes first ever TTXGP win

13 machines started the race, eight finished.

Barber wins historic first TTXGP

Has some good race color. e.g. The Mission Motors bike led the field initially, but ended up in fourth place. There's got to be a story there.

Barber wins first ever green TT - Brief blurb from BBC

MotoCzysz breaks down, retires from TTXGP - This happened early in the race.

Spoiler Alert! TTXGP winner is...

Team Agni scores e-bike grand prix victory - Rider Rob Barker wins first TTxGP

Brammo TTR Enertia comes in third at TTXGP

It was noted earlier that MotoCzysz may not qualify for TTXGP .. hence interesting that they did not finish the race.

Re: TTXGP race results, won by Team Agni

Wired article: http://www.wired.com/autopia/2009/06/ttxgp/ It includes an interesting bit of color that one rider was determined to finish the course but had exhausted the battery pack. So he pushed the bike along with his feet taking almost an hour to finish.

Re: TTXGP race results, won by Team Agni

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/power-assist/message/82520 - Don Harmon (Lifebatt) posted final results along with some discussion about the three bikes using Lifebatt batteries.

Neither of the LifeBatt-using bikes finished. However they both had problems with their Agni motors. He claims the motors overheated and a difference between the Team Agni bike and these others was the mounting of the motor. Team Agni mounted both their motors outside the frame, in the airflow, whereas the other teams mounted their motors inside the frame. The lack of airflow is suspected as the cause of motor failure.
