MotoCzysz Racing Sponsored by Segway in 2011
In 2010, the MotoCzysz E1pc set the bar for electric motorcycle racing by winning the two most important international electric motorcycle races and setting records along the way. The all-new 2011 MotoCzysz E1pc will further advance electric vehicle technology and performance by increasing onboard energy, nearly doubling the horsepower while reducing the vehicle’s overall weight.
The MotoCzysz E1pc was ridden to victory in the 2010 Race by American rider Mark Miller, who will return with the #1 plate on an upgraded 2010 E1pc for the 2011 race meeting. He will be joined in the Oregon-based outfit this year by TT star Michael Rutter who will be piloting the all-new 2011 MotoCzysz E1pc.
"Following last year’s TT, Jimi Heselden, the owner of Segway and I became very interested and motivated to be involved in the electric motorcycle racing world. MotoCzysz was our first choice to partner with, and I could not be happier or more excited to be involved for the 2011 season,” said Wayne Mitchell, CEO of Segway Inc.
“We’re thrilled to have Segway as a sponsor for the 2011 race season. Segway is a recognized innovator, making them a perfect partner for MotoCzysz. As the CEO of Segway is an ex British motorcycle champion, and current world motorcycle land speed record holder, Wayne and I are kindred spirits, and look forward to a great 2011 racing season and future together,” said Michael Czysz, MotoCzysz CEO & Founder.
