The world’s first sanctioned, zero-carbon motorsport event, TTXGP—also known as the eGrandPrix—is an international race series that provides a high-profile platform for electric vehicle innovation and development. In 2009, TTXGP was launched as part of the annual Isle of Man Tourist Trophy races—a prestigious and decades-old motorcycle event in the United Kingdom.
In 2011, there will be about 15 races on three different continents—including North America (see www.egrandprix.com). “Anybody who has been to one of our races has come away changed, heart and mind,” says TTXGP founder and consumer electronics entrepreneur Azhar Hussain. “I have a waiting list of tracks wanting to join us.”
