Update on the world's first Electric Motorbike Race SeriesSimon Maddison, Chairman, IET Technical Advisory Panel to TTXGP
19.30pm, 1 February 2011
57 Park Road
TTXGP took the Isle of Man TT Motorcycle race into its second century by staging the world’s first zero emission motorcycle race as part of the June 2009 TT Race series. In 2010 this was expanded into 3 race series, in North America, UK and Europe, with a world final in Spain in October.
The IET has been heavily engaged in supporting TTXGP, and provided the technical expertise for assessing the entries, advising teams on compliance issues, as well as the scrutineers for practice and the races themselves.
This is a unique opportunity to hear how the races, by imposing stringent ‘zero emission’ rules on the bikes, are promoting the acceptance and commercial reality of zero emission vehicles for everyday use. The intention is also to inspire a new generation of engineers to step up and address the challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century.
There will be footage of the bikes in action, and photographs of the entries, with plenty of discussion of the technologies deployed.
An actual TTXGP bike will be on display!
