Lightning Motorcycles testing race bike at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway

Lightning Motorcycles sent around a press release that they’ll be testing their race bike this weekend at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway.  The riders will be Isle of Man racer John Burrows, and AMA racer Ted Rich.

Lightning worked with Ted Rich for one of the TTXGP races last summer.

John Burrows rode with Lightning for the TT Zero last summer on the Isle of Man.

Hence, it seems likely that Lightning plans to go back to the Isle of Man this summer.  Hopefully this time they’ll finish the race rather than run out of juice a couple miles from the finish line.

It’s unclear whether this means anything about Lightning’s TTXGP rider for 2012.  Will they bring back Michael Barnes, or will they work with Ted Rich instead.
