The overall result of the inaugural TTXGP, as recorded by time keepers, has been confirmed by the Race Management team from ACU Events Ltd. Two riders, Chris Heath (Electric Motorsport) and Paul Dobbs (HTBlauva), who were originally disqualified, were unaware that they were required to sound horns while racing under yellow flags and the overall result was not in any way influenced by their actions.

Azhar Hussain, founder of the TTXGP, said: "Today represents the culmination of an incredibly long journey to the world’s first zero carbon eGrandPrix. The teams, riders and all those involved in making this event possible have worked tirelessly to make the TTXGP the reality it has become today. Together we have proved that zero carbon transport technology has the capability to thrill motor racing fans and is ready for application in the real world."

Simon Maddison, Chairman IET Technical Panel, who are technical advisors to TTXGP, said, "It’s been a long road to get us to the starting line. No-one could have imagined how the journey would be – 10 months of hard work from our panel but the equivalent of 20 months input from the teams. Everyone who has made it to the Isle of Man has to be congratulated – it has really re-created the pioneering spirit of the TT. To say, it has been a historic moment would be an understatement. To say, it is watching the technology of the future is a statement."
