No. 80, The Lighning Motors electric bike team; stacked up some impressive statistics during the Road America round of the TTXGP North American championship.
Starting at the back of the grid not only did the bike fly to the front of the field and win the teams first race of the season, Lightning's best lap time was only 20 secs slower than the best lap time of the XR1200 winner (about 11% differential.) In addition the dynamic combination of Michael Barnes racing technique and the force of the EV1 motor saw the bike perform only 12 secs behind the 10th place Harley (7%)
Amazing statistics don't you think?
