Nova Electric Racing

Our mission is to be at the forefront of the motorcycle industry’s transition to alternative fuels. We do this by realising a fully electric motorcycle that competes in the MotoE Competition 2017. With the knowledge and facilities of the Delft University of Technology and the products and support of our sponsors, team Nova Electric Racing is capable of designing and building a fast, lightweight and eco-friendly electric motorcycle. State of the art techniques are used during the fabrication of the motorcycle.

Extended update from the Anglesey MotoE race weekend now that we are back in Delft! The last vlog of the weekend is being edited right now, and will follow soon.

We set our goal for this weekend to use the track time for some more testing of our bike, but we got so much more!
This first race weekend we, together with Bath Zero Emissions Motorcycles team, were given the exciting chance to compete against petrol bikes in the Desmo Due / Racing Formula 400 class of the race weekend at Anglesey Circuit / Trac Môn.

The first free practice on Friday did not go as planned, since there was a small problem with the relay box. Luckily, we managed to fix this with what was available, but didn't get to participate in the practice.

A few more testing rounds on Saturday went very well, and we managed to improve the power output of the bike. The last session in the petrol class of this day was the qualification for the races of the next day.

Sunday started off early with the final practice followed shortly with the first race, where we got the first points of the competition: our rider Casper Voogt managed to obtain the first place!

The second race of the day started perfectly, with a fresh rear tyre, having practiced our pit/race procedures quite a few times already. We were excited to see the bike from the team of Bath University and ours going head to head across the straight, having overtaken a few petrol bikes already in the process.
Sadly, in the second lap, our bike shut itself down due to an error. At this point, it wasn't possible to restart the bike, also because of the location it broke down: a blind corner over a hill made it too dangerous to continue from there. Right now, we will examine the cause of the problem back in our workshop in Delft. With all of the valuable data obtained from this weekend, we have a good list of improvements for the bike for the next race in 3 weeks.

We are very happy with the outcome of this weekend, and our first trophy of the competition. We'd like to thank the organisation of the Anglesey Circuit, NG Road Racing, and MotoE for making this all possible.
And of course a big thank you to all of our sponsors, without whom we wouldn't have been able to do this!

Great performance in our first race!

After some minor problems before the start of the race, we were able to start the race through the pitlane after the warmup lap. From last place, we managed to fight our way back to a 24th place at the finish, even though our rider Casper Voogt had to restart the bike during the race losing a couple of positions. We are very happy with this place out of 31 petrol bikes!

The next and final race will be in about 30 minutes, together with Bath Zero Emissions Motorcycles, so we'll keep you up to date!
