TTXGP eGrandPrix America. July 24th – July 26th 2009
The TTXGP eGrandPrix is to launch zero-carbon motorcycle racing into the USA with an exhibition appearance at the annual American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Vintage Motorcycle Days festival at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
The TTXGP eGrandPrix has already taken the step of setting up a US office ahead of its first appearance in America. The US office will work to develop the eGrandPrix in US markets by promoting eGrandPrix events and building relationships with teams, riders and sponsors.
Jeremy Burne, an expert in developing transatlantic ties for businesses within the automotive and motorsport industries, will be heading up the US eGrandPrix office.
Mission, Brammo and Electric Motorsport have agreed to come and we are extending the invitations to the world through http://www.ttxgp.com.
AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days takes place from July 24 to July 26, 2009. It is expected that up to 80,000 visitors, including numerous high-profile celebrities, will attend the event, which is billed as America’s grandest celebration of motorcycling heritage. The weekend is loaded with highlights, including road, motocross and hare scramble races, demo rides of current production bikes, motorcycling seminars, bike shows, stunt shows, the new product Manufacturers’ Midway, and club corrals that feature both marque and regional clubs.
Rob Dingman, AMA President and CEO, said: “We’re pleased to welcome the TTXGP eGrandPrix to America. This year, as the AMA celebrates its 85 years of two-wheeled history, we thought it only fitting to also offer a glimpse into what the next 85 years of motorcycling may bring. The AMA eGrand Prix Introduction showcases the sharpened point of the latest cutting-edge technology alongside a full slate of vintage racing, and we’re excited for fans to see the future up close and personal.”
