Student engineering team

NOVA ELECTRIC RACING

Nova Electric Racing is a student engineering team of the TU Delft. We aim to show that renewable energy will play a major role in the future of motorsport racing, without compromising on performance. This will be done by developing a fully electric racing motorcycle, which will compete in the MotoE Championship 2017. The goal of our DreamTeam is to achieve a podium finish. Each year, a new team of students go through the entire design process. The team gains a lot of experience and technical knowledge during this process of designing and building the motorcycle.

The TEAM

Nova Electric Racing is a multidisciplinary team consisting of students from different faculties of the Delft University of Technology and the Universities of Applied Science. The team is composed of international and Dutch students, working together in different departments. There are technical and non-technical departments to coordinate various tasks. At Nova Electric Racing, we have the opportunity to develop essential skills such as time management, problem solving and teamwork while encountering different challenges along the way. Nova is a stimulant place where people have a similar point of view about electric motorcycles, innovation and a shared passion for the world of racing.
