TTXGP at VIR in 2010

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Dec. 15, 2009
Virginia International Raceway will host the third North American round of the TTXGPs electric racing series.

The Danville, Va., circuit will host the eGrandPrix Aug. 13-15 alongside an AMA Pro Road Racing event. VIR joins Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif., and Mosport International Raceway in Toronto, Canada, on the 2010 North American eGrandPrix calendar.

We are very excited to be the third location chosen for a TTXGP event, says Josh Lief, VIR general manager. Alternative fuels and green transportation are very important subjects, and the combination of electric power with motorcycle racing on our famed 2.2 mile North Course should be a thrill for our fans.

A fourth event is expected to be added to complete the TTXGP North American Championship.
