The Mission R from Mission Motors that we presented last December
made its first official test this weekend at Laguna Seca during the Refuel Race where the race track is open to electric vehicles.
With 1: 43.7, Steve Rapp, takes the track record for an electric bike!
This time is significant and promising for two reasons:
-It allows to compare with previous record held by a competitor: the 2010 MotoCzysz E1pc with 1:44.4
-The first stage of the TTXGP North America takes place on the same track in less than a month, on July 24th, and will see the two bikes competing with also the highly anticipated Brammo Empulse RR
and that promises great battles.
Note that MotoCzysz may smash the record with the 2011 version of the E1pc
who won the TT Zero
(0 emission IOMTT) and a motorcycle that has proven to be far more efficient than the 2010 version, lets see what happens then!
