Brammo Back on Top! Steve-O Numero UNO at PIR!
Team Icon-Brammo has taken top spot at Portland International Raceway (PIR) with an average lap time of 1.18 and an average speed of 87.58 mph around the 1.92 mile circuit. Motoczysz, was expected to be Brammo’s competitor to beat, but unfortunately the impressive Motoczsyz E1PC machines were withdrawn by the Motoczysz team after posting the single fastest lap time of 1:15 in the qualifying session. Due to a shipping delay (from IOM), Motoczsyz was unable to fit the machines with more suitable battery packs for the race. Michael Czsyz explained that the IOM tuned battery packs were not tuned for TTXGP duty resulting in thermal runaway on the battery pack during the preliminary runs.
Its especially encouraging to see Steve-O (Steve Atlas) back in good form leading Brammo to the number 1 spot on the podium after the unfortunate mishaps they encountered during the last race at Infineon Raceway that injured not one but 2 Steves, Steve Atlas, and Steve Rapp.
Next round of the TTXGP North American Championship will be at Laguna Seca (Mazda Raceway) July 28th and 29th followed by a three day event at Miller Motorsport Park August 31st through September 2nd, which I hope to attend myself!
