The Inaugural TTXGP Carbon-Free Race - Green Prix

TTXGP, the world's first carbon-free Grand Prix

Slated for Saturday, June 12th-smack-dab in the middle of Isle of Man TT weekend-the inaugural TTXGP, billed as the world's first clean emissions motor vehicle race, is certain to be a history-making event. Held on the same 37.733-mile Snaefell Mountain Course on which internal-combustion machines have raced for more than a century, zero-emissions vehicles will compete in three classes: Pro, featuring sophisticated prototypes with corporate backing; Open, limited to machines converted or constructed with off-the-shelf components; and Free, an exhibition for amateurs and emergent technology. British entrepreneur Anzar Hussain, who created the event, hopes to "set the benchmark in environmentally friendly racing excellence, and to support scientific and technological innovation."

Based on a Suzuki GSX-R750 chassis, the TTX01 is good for 30 miles at 100 mph.
