Portland, OR "” March 26, 2012 - MotoCzysz is pleased to announce that Segway® will continue its title sponsorship of MotoCzysz's electric motorcycle racing program for the 2012 season.

Beginning with the SES TT Zero race taking place during 2012 Isle of Man (IOM) TT, from May 28 June 8, Team Segway Racing MotoCzysz plans to continue their dominance at the Isle. Last year, team riders decisively took a One, Two finish. In 2012, Segway Racing MotoCzysz is looking to three-peat as well as become the first manufacturer to break the 100mph lap average for electric racing.

With both Mark Miller and Michael Rutter again piloting 2 new 2012 E1pc e-grand prix motorcycles, MotoCzysz's CEO, Michael Czysz, is optimistic about upcoming competitions. "It says a lot about the program and the relationships when everyone returns. Last year's race was executed to near perfection, with Segway Racing MotoCzysz taking first and second, this year we hope to do even better." This year's competition will be even greater, and with the help of Segway, MotoCzysz is able to push the innovation and performance envelope even further. "I think the TT Zero race this year will be one of the highlights at the IOM," concluded Czysz, "we are bringing something very special."
