Video: MotoCzysz’s Isle of Man TT Winning Lap(s)

07/31/2011 @ 11:43 pm, by Jensen Beeler9 COMMENTS

One distinction that got overlooked from this year’s Isle of Man TT is the fact that MotoCzysz currently holds the top seven fastest laps ever put down by an electric vehicle around the TT’s Mountain Course. What makes this feat perhaps more noteworthy is that two of those laps have been captured in a single video, due in part by MotoCzysz’s two-bike strategy this year at the TT Zero.¬†With American Mark Miller on the 2010 MotoCzysz E1pc and Michael Rutter on the 2011 MotoCzysz E1pc, the two competitors lapped a thinking man’s race down the course, with each rider trying to conserve power, and get into position for a final-stretch breakaway

Pulling around and ahead of his teammate down the final stretches of the course, Rutter was disappointingly just shy of the 100 mph mark, leaving the Isle of Man’s bounty on the average lap speed to stand until next year. Still, the pair both set the fastest times ever in the TT Zero, and improved on the pace from last year. MotoCzysz has now been kind enough to share their lap records with us in a video that shows not only the race telemetry (Contour cameras for the win!), but also has Mark Miller and Michael Rutter commentating. Watch the 23 minute video of Rutter’s and Miller’s race over on

    Outstanding footage and music background! Exciting to watch as Miller and Ruter narrated. I could not stop watching. History in the making as it was when the 100 mph mark was broken decades ago on muti cylender factory machines on skinny litle tires and soup bowl helmets. Edison would be proud and so would Hailwood I think. I’m going to go take a nap.

  • A awesome video very cool riding styles what is the green/blue lights that keep flashing on top? enjoyed it.

    wow. pretty sweet footage. it’s always striking to see how close the TT riders get to fans, marshals, and potentially fatal immovable objects.
