    If a guy or gal decided to run an electric bike. ( Zero, Brammo, Victory TT) for example, what class could it run? The brammo and Victory are insured under a 600CC category. Just run it in f118 or f115?

    It would be very cool to see an electric bike out there Eddie!
    I would be so into racing one if you want to bring a second bike ;-)

    They way that I would approach it for now would be to just see where your laptimes are during a trackday and make a judgement from there. Those bikes are around 40-50 hp, so I think they might fit better in the 300 or 500 classes as well as F118. Might be a little underpowered for F115. If you really sandbag it we might stick them with the minigps.

    Does Eddie have to run a car alarm siren like the electric bikes at Pikes Peak?
