UoN electric superbike achieves podium finish at Isle of Man TT

The University of Nottingham’s race team recently entered a bike into the Isle of Man TT Zero race for the fourth year in a row, achieving a podium finish.

The bike, along with professional rider Daley Mathison, achieved an average speed of 119.294mph, beating the previous lap record, finishing in second place and splitting the Mugen (Honda) machines.

The race took place in early June and the podium awards were given by Prince William. Himself a keen biker, Prince William also met the team after the race had finished to chat about the bike.

The UoN TT Zero race team, which includes members of academic staff, technicians, researchers and students all from the Faculty of Engineering, was delighted with the success.

They are looking forward to returning next year and improving on the position, and would like to thank all sponsors, supporters, friends and family for their continued encouragement and contribution towards achieving our podium position this year.
