This, from Steve Labib, MD of JozzTek, sums it up, inspiration for other aspiring TWEV-racers
Richie Walsh was riding an electric racing motorcycle for MRB/ARC Racing

Hi Ed,

Well, that was fantastic!
Richie Walsh rode the bike in an open class against mainly 1000cc bikes, and held his ground remarkably well. He beat a 400CC, 2 600CC R6’s (!), and spent most of the race tussling with a guy very nearly your exact age riding an RG500!

Lots of positive feedback (and none negative), the chief marshal told me if I could get more bikes along he’d get them on the track and gradually find the best races for them to be in.

Kind regards,
