Weather keeps TT Zero bikes at bay, and Schedule update

So I only had 3 hits on this page today, and I suspect they were bots. I find it strangely relieving. Not to mention I have to be to work in a few hours and here I am typing away on possibly the best blogging laptop every with my wife a sleep next to me. She finds out I wrote this she’s going to kill me. We have a wedding ceremony in 2 . . . no, 1 day! Yes a bit backwards I know, but such is life. Anyway on to the real news that no one is reporting.

So according to this news bit on the TT’s website the gas bikes only got 1 lap, and weather got so bad they shut everything down 1.5 hours before the Elmotos were to take the track on for the first time. Which was Wednesday. Then they canceled Thursday all together because of weather. So no one got to play. Not that I really care about any bike besides the elmotos.

So there is a revised schedule now. But it is only for Saturday to Tuesday. Friday will be Thursday’s schedule which is exactly the same for the TT Zero crew. So this the new TT Zero practice/Qualifying start times:

Friday: 8:40pm (all Isle of Mann time)

Saturday: 5:00pm

Sunday: 4:40pm

Monday: 4:05pm

Tuesday: 3:55pm

Enjoy!

June is going to be ridiculous when it comes to racing over the next few weeks.  I think it’s a conspiracy to try to make me OD on racing, and they might just succeed.  Here’s what is coming up for the next few weeks:

May 31: First TT Zero Practice

June 1: Second TT Zero Practice Brammo Practice and Qualifying at AFM Round at Thunder Hill

June 2: Brammo at AFM Races

June 3: Third TT Zero Practice and Moto Electra starts cross Continent EV record attempt

June 5: The TT Zero race

June 8: M1GP Practice and Qualifying

June 9: M1GP Races

So, for the Europeans it is a 6 week break from the TT to the first round of the eRR in Europe.  In North America it is only a 3 week break for the Hollywood Electrics guys from the last M1GP round to Pikes Peak and the REFUEL event being held the same weekend.  And then another 3 weeks to the first North American eRR race at Laugna Seca. Thank the lord because I’ll need the breaks.  It looks like the Pikes Peak will be very well covered by both Ride Apart and Asphalt & Rubber, and @Pinkyracr will be hooning around Laguna Seca at the REFUEL event.  So we have that to look forward too.

Hold on to your pantyhose kids.  It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
