My Brammo-centric obsessive compulsive disorder is working overtime this morning. I just saw this tweet from JCAMJames, who happens to work at JCAM (in Hong Kong, I think):
JCAM is the distributor of Segways and other electric vehicles in Singapore and Hong Kong, and is owned by Jackie Chan, who is in possession of some specially-modified Brammo Enertias he plans to abuse in an upcoming movie, Chinese Zodiac.
Of course, I started wondering about the significance of Macau and November, and a quick search revealed that November 18 – 21, 2010, is the weekend of the Macau Grand Prix. According to the official website:
The three headline races are the FIA Formula 3 Intercontinential Cup, the Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix – 44thEdition, and the FIA World Touring Car Championship – Guia Race of Macau, with five supporting races: The Macau GT Cup, Macau Road Sport Challenge, CTM Macau Touring Car Race, Hotel Fortuna MAC/HKG Interport Race, and Formula BMW Pacific.
No mention of any electric motorcycle race there (or on the TTXGP site or the FIM ePower site). But the schedule of the event for Sunday, the 21st, states:
13:45 – 14:45 Special Event
“Special Event”? Is it too OCD of me to notice that JCAMJAMES and the Macau GP folks used the same words?
If you answered “yes,” then you’ll love this: On the Provisional Entry List of riders, is #66 – Mark Buckley. Buckley was the rider of the Brammo Enertia TTR Race Bike that finished third in the inaugural TTXGP on the Isle of Man in June 2009. Maybe it’s just another coincidence.
