2011 TT Zero: more money, more coverage, hopefully more speed

The Isle of Man has begun soliciting entries for the 2011 TT Zero, adding a £5,000 prize for the fastest university or college team while the £10,000 prize for the first 100mph lap remains unclaimed. That may seem like a lot of money until you remember that last year’s winning bike, the 2010 MotoCzysz E1pc which managed a 96.82mph average speed, cost $200-$300,000 in development alone. Perhaps more interesting is the promise of expanded TV coverage of the electric race. The video below is the best footage released yet, but is nothing like the comprehensive footage of the race that we’d like to see.
