For the first time ever, a complete show dedicated to TTXGP zero-carbon motorcycle racing championship will be released on May 23rd, 2010.

The show features exclusive behind the scenes interviews, tech talks and wall-to-wall racing. With 8 cameras covering the racetrack, the show features an epic racing battle that unfolds as the riders push for the lead on every turn. The incredible whisper-jet footage of the race is becoming a milestone in motorsports.

This first 2010 TTXGP took place at the West Coast Moto Jam at Infineon on May 16th as part of the AMA SuperBike weekend.

Teams from across America came to change the hearts and minds of race fans by delivering compelling race action. The field was led with a turn-by-turn battle between ZeroAgni ridden by Shawn Higbee and Lightening Motorcycles, Michael Barnes. Each pushed the other to deliver a thrilling pace that was only 18 secs per lap off the AMA Superbike pace with each pulling 1:57 per lap.

The battle was finally decided when Barnes had to stop to cycle his bike through a reboot but still managed to hold of Michael Hannas to 3rd place on the ElectricRacebikes.com

WerkStatt, Jennifer Bromme, riding the Mavizen TTX02, suffered a software glitch on the first turn of the first lap. Having to reboot her machine and standing still for about 30 secs, she finally started her race and climbed through the field taking 4th place behind Hannas.

Broome just beat out the second Zero satellite teams, KSquared Racing, ridden Kenyon Kludge, Zero’s chief electrical engineer riding a modified Zero stock bike.

The field was rounded out by Zoe Rem riding a modified commuter bike from Pril Motors. John Wild from Square Wave and Jason Lauritzen from Electric MotorSports brought up the rear.

Notable mentions to Spencer Smith from Volt and Thad Wolff from Team Electra who retired due to mechanical failures on lap 9 and lap 3 respectively.
