TTXGP VIR: North America Final Qualifying

Electric Superbikes

Zero-Emission Superbike Teams take to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) to set grid position for the final. Tight times promise wheel-to-wheel motorcycle racing action.

TTXGP qualifiers today gave a glimpse to the kind of racing that we can expect for the Sunday final.

Michael Barnes led the field with the Lightning Motorcycles, but the tight times for position 2, 3, 4 made the qualifiers feel like a race.

Zoe Rem on Team Agni just beat Thad "Wolfman" Wolff on the Norton Electric team with a tight 0.7 seconds, with Mike Hannas setting in 4th.

Jennifer Bromme dropped time when a fault developed with her rear tire but she finishes 5th with Square Wave bringing up 6th place.
