Michael Czysz to race E1pc at Laguna Seca
American rider Mark Miller rode the MotoCzysz at the TT, so this will be the first time Czysz will race the E1pc. The former AMA 250 racer is no slouch (as you can see in this picture), he's currently the head instructor at the Skip Barber Superbike School and recently completed some pre-race testing at Laguna with Eric Bostrom.

" says I'm on form and up to pace, so what the hell. It's pretty official, forms have been sent, assuming no licensing hang-ups, I will race."

Michael and the E1pc will be taking part in the FIM e-Power race at Laguna on 24 July as a one-off entry. Ultimately, the MotoCzysz isn't competing against the other electric bikes -- it should easily blow them away -- but instead for the imaginations of motorcycle fans. If any electric motorcycle can convince people that they're the future, it's this one.
