TTXGP has always been known for being ahead of the pack. In a brand new sport where innovation and technological development are at the heart of the race, how should TTXGP develop rules that encourage innovation and invite new participants while preserving the safety of riders, race stewards and fans?
TTXGP began addressing this questions when, in early 2009, it commissioned an independent panel of international experts in all disciplines relating to emissions transport technology brought together from its membership by the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology). In 2010, TTXGP decided to cast its net further by starting a Rules Wiki as a forum for all interested parties to weigh-in with ideas about the rules. After the success of last year’s Rules Wiki, TTXGP has again enlisted the help of the very best Wiki Moderator, EV enthusiast Harry Mallin, to give you an opportunity to have your thoughts heard and us an opportunity to ensure we have the widest possible thought leadership and contribution in 2011:-
Harry said “The Wiki is updated with the current set of technical rules ready for everyone to contribute to, peruse, and debate. You may have joined it in 2010, but it’s time to stop lurking and let us know what you want the Rules to be for 2012.
The 2011 Rules caused a little controversy with the creation of two classes and with the reduction of the weight limit from 300kg to 250kg to encourage innovation in design and efficiency of power delivery, while sustaining the promise of an exciting and competitive field. Rather than talking about the implications from the sidelines, here’s your chance, yet again, to actually have a say in what the rules for electric motorcycle racing ought to be. Please share the wisdom and passion that comes from years of development and work in research labs, universities, and garages and on racetracks and roads all over the world. Your contribution is both valued and necessary.”
TTXGP – be part of it.
