The International Motorcycling Federation and the TTXGP will hold three electric motorcycle racing events together.

The two rival electric motorcycle racing organizers appear to have healed their well publicized rift, announcing the final three rounds of the FIMs 2011 e-Power championship will be held jointly with the TTXGPs European and North American championships. According to a joint statement, the two sides decided to work together in a spirit of collaboration and the common goal of promoting electric clean emission racing.
