So my 5 week “hitch” as they call it in the seismic community is coming to a close. That’s 5 weeks straight of 12 hour days, so as you can imagine I’m ready to be able to sleep in for a change. But there has been a bunch of stuff happening that I have not been able to blog about. But I have been doing my best to share what I find on my Facebook feed.
Mostly we have the first two rounds of the MotoE racing series in Europe with the next two coming at the end of this month and a Final scheduled at Donington Park in October, if memory serves. That means the last two rounds are in Great Britain (for however long that lasts) and at major tracks. That’s a nice score for MotoE.
eMotoRacing here in the US just ran last weekend with their round at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah. The kids from Calgary showed up with a very clean-looking bike. I am not sure any Zeros made it though. EBoz still has the the Empulse R (TTX?) railing, and Shane Turpin, who is for all intent and purposes THE Miller ringer, not only left all the eSuperStock bikes behind, but also crushed every last gas bike on the circuit. No seriously. He won by so much on Saturday they made him start from the back on Sunday, and even then it didn’t make much of a difference. Brammo clearly has been working on that bike.
Speaking of which, Brammo is having a ridiculous sale that lasts until the end of October. $7000 off of 2013 Empulses and $5000 off of 2014. Go get ‘em if you can find them.
Since I have been busy with this new job I have not been in as good a contact with folks. A little bit here and there, so the hope is after I get settled in back at home I can get some detail to these stories. I might even have time to analyze lap times if I can get my hands on them. I really want to record some new interviews as it has been a while, but I really need to get all those old ones edited and up first. They are still relevant. I also have an appointment scheduled to talk to someone about professionally doing the website. We’ll see how that goes. And progress shall be made on the 500 Interceptor, come hell or high water.
