The era of electric motorcycle racing has arrived, with the 2009 Isle of Man TT playing host to the TTXGP.
The machines for the world’s first clean emission race took to the legendary Mountain circuit on Tuesday afternoon for the first practice session around the 37.73-mile course.
Despite the doubters, 10 of the 14 starters made it around the TT course, and the speeds impressed all spectators.
Speeds in excess of 100mph were recorded on the Sulby straight, and the fastest machine round – Team Agni’s Pro Class entry – lapped at an average speed of 84.81mph.
