By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Apr. 16, 2010
Thomas Betti of Betti Moto has won the first ever FIM e-Power International Championship race.

Betti, a 29-year-old firefighter from Rimini, Italy, qualified in pole position and won the race, held April 16 at the Bugatti Circuit ahead of the Le Mans 24 Hours Endurance World Championship race.

Betti rode on a motorcycle constructed by his father, Luciano Betti, who also competed. Bettis best lap was clocked at 2:21, two seconds off his qualifying time. Betti says he was trying to manage the available charge to last the entire six-lap race.
