Riding his 194bhp electric superbike, Chip Yates has placed second in the superstock class in a race against WERA Heavyweight Twins. That class includes bikes like the Ducati 1198 and KTM RC8. Until today, Chip had only completed a handful of laps on his experimental motorcycle on two outings. When we spoke to Chip last month, he was cautiously optimistic about reaching mid-pack in this class, sometime later in the season.

Make sure you check out our Chip Yates tag page for the interview and lots of details and photos on the bike.
