In brief: Lightning Motors' Michael Barnes won last weekend at the TTXGP's latest race in the third of the North America Championship series. Next race will be in the United Kingdom.

The word

TTXGP UK winner Jim Lovell

Five teams from around the U.S. competed in this latest of the championship series with Team Lightning once again scoring a resounding victory.

Michael Barnes' #80 (Lightning Motors) came in first, followed by Thad Wolff on #37 (Team Electra), with Jennifer Bromme as #23 coming in third (Werkstatt Racing).

Of all the bikes competing, the Lightning has clearly shown in all three races that it's a powerhouse, outclassing all others in speed. It's closest competition was in the first round of the series on a windy track, where it's straightaway speed was matched by the agility of the competition.

Teams continue to tweak their bikes as riders and pit crew learn from these fledgling competitions what is required to put an electric motorcycle through its paces to come out on top in a track race.

And so ...

Another TTXGP is taking place in the UK with the latest race, also this past weekend, having great results (photo is Jim Lovell of Team Tork).

Winners in that race were Jim Lovell (Team Tork) coming in first, followed very closely by Rob Moon (team Agni) and Jenny Tinmouth (also of Team Agni and race favorite).

Next weekend sees the next UK race in the series.
