I have to say I did laugh at all the hype from the US entries in the TTXGP. And then to watch them being beaten by a bunch of Anglo-Indian nerds and geeks (no offence guys)!
Has Moto-Czysz produced anything but hype so far? Sure, the bike looks clever, just like their 4-stroke. But does it actually work? ISTR it didn't actually complete a lap of the TT, either in the race or in practice.
This whole press release just looks like a lot of moaning and excuses which get him out of actually competing anywhere and exposing the hype for what it is. If TTXGP and FIM (and TTXGP-US) all end up running a series, then either do all of them, or just pick one. Or cherry pick races. Put up or shut up.
Meanwhile the TTXGP-FIM split is just stupid. It's not at all clear what the hell is going on there. It seems that the TTXGP people have upset the Americans in some way because all the pro-FIM noise criticising TTXGP seems to be coming from there.
And as for the AMA, well they produced Ben Spies and Nicky Hayden, but it's been a second rate national championship for quite some time now. But this last year has been a monumental clusterf*ck that has destroyed any credibility it had. Stick a fork in the arse and turn them over, they're done.
And finally. The Electric rules as they now stand, allow a lot more streamlining than normal FIM racing rules. This really is a major change that finally reverses the ill considered ruules brought in during the 50s.
Sadly nobody is taking advantage of this yet. And sadly it doesn't go far enough as it excludes the Electric Monotracer. A "bike" that already has range, top speed, and Brno lap times well ahead of the TTXGP bikes.
