MotoCzysz breaks the ton in historic TT ZERO electric motorcycle win

Electric motorcycle technology took a historic leap forward today when MotoCzysz and MUGEN both achieved 100+ miles/hr lap speeds in the 2012 TT ZERO, to "break the ton".

In a historic win, Mike Rutter, riding for MotoCzysz, won the 2012 TT ZERO, and along the way broke the ton, meaning a lap speed greater than 100 miles/hr. John McGuiness, riding for MUGEN Shinden, came in 2nd and Rutters teammate Mark Miller taking third. All three "broke the ton," but it is Rutter who wins the £10,000 prize fund offered by the Isle of Man government for the first rider to make this achievement.

The Isle of Man has been rainy the past few days, delaying the start of the race, and riders interviewed by Manx Radio just before the race were nervous. Race officials issued a warning to riders to expect damp conditions all around the track, and limited visibility on the mountain portion of the course. However once the race began the riders must have left their nervousness back at the starting line, because Rutter, McGuiness and Miller all turned in excellent results.
