The Sonoma County event, known as the Time Trial eXtreme Grand Prix, will form part of the AMA Motorcycle Sonoma Showdown weekend, May 14-16.
According to Infineon President Steve Page, “When it comes to development of zero-carbon motorcycles, Northern California is the center of the industry, so it makes perfect sense that Infineon Raceway should host the first event in the historic new series.”
A range of TTXGP bikes, similar to the forthcoming Mavizen TTX02, first competed at the Isle of Man earlier this year. Spectators at the 2010 Sonoma event can expect a race lasting some 30 minutes, with 15 to 25 bikes topping out at speeds above 100 mph.
