5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Leccy Tech More good news for anyone who likes their motor sport mean, green and clean.

TTxGP has added four Italian dates to the 2010 e-bike GP series: Magione on 27 June, Franciacorta on 25 July and 5 September, and Mugello on 26 September.

A further date has also been confirmed for the 2010 British championship, which will now include races at Brands Hatch on 2 and 3 September.

Across the Atlantic, new dates have been added to the North American calendar, with races now confirmed for the weekend of 11-13 July at Mosport International, Toronto, and at the Virginia International Raceway on 13-15 August.

It has also been announced that a TTxGP Grand Final race meeting will be held on 24 October at Albacete in Spain. This will be open to the top six teams from each of the regional competitions.

If you prefer your motor racing on four wheels as well as two then TTxGP has also announced a tie-up with a French organisation called GP-Elec to host a leccy race meet in Paris on 4-6 June.

The event will take place around a 1.8-mile riverside street circuit in the Levallois-Perret district of the French capital and will include e-car races – racing under the EMXGP banner - as well as TTxGP bike races.

Exactly what type of e-cars will take part in the EMXGP race is a bit of a grey area at the moment - as are details who will drive them. ®
