Motoczysz withdraws from todays race.
24th June 2012
The local team and favourite to win had experienced some technical difficulties at the end of yesterdays qualifying that coupled with very little set up or preparation time meant this announcement from the teams General Manager this morning came as no surprise...
I'd like to thank those of you that braved the rain and came to the track today. We are truly lucky to have so many supporters.
Due to delayed of our bikes from Isle of Man, and after only getting a few hours to prepare for this weekend's races, we have decided to not to participate in the TTXGP race tomorrow, Sunday 6/24. Unfortunately, our e-Grand Prix machines still have in their IOM battery packs in and we frankly don't have enough time to replace them with short course pack. And, although our riders were the fastest in qualifying today, we were looking for much, much more in the way of lap times and feel that we are capable of delivering one minute, twelve second passes. If we can't do our best, we'll wait to come back when we can.
We were very proud to be on the track with our OMRRA combustion-engine racing friends and look forward to being out there again soon.
For now, we would like to again say thanks to the many supporters that cheered and waved as our special bikes sprinted around their home track. We love Portland and we love the motorcycling community here :)
