IMechE – TTXGP, the eGrandPrix, 2 October 2012, Bentley Motors, Crewe
Start date: 02/10/2012
TTXGP, the eGrandPrix: the world’s first and leading championship for electric motorsport – a platform for thought leadership and disruptive innovation. Providing solutions to energy challenges, TTXGP is a valuable R&D tool for innovation and advances in technology that will help power the industry on, as well as beyond, the track.
Using motorcycles as an exciting platform for new ideas, TTXGP provides an ecosystem from which to test, prove and ultimately market the technologies of the future with a cost-effective development platform. Two wheels are significantly more cost effective than four.
The speaker will be Justin Van’t Hoff, Technical Design Manager, Mavizen Ltd. Mavizen is a premier technology supplier to the electric motorsport industry and proud to be the official technology advice and support arm to TTXGP, the world’s first zero-carbon race championship.
Mavizen produced its first prototype race motorcycle TTX01 in 2008 to prove the concept and lay down the gauntlet to innovators worldwide. Its successor, TTX02, was launched in November 2009 to give potential participants a chance to acquire a proven platform that they can develop themselves.
Mavizen has subsequently worked with a number of partners developing a product line that is being utilised in cars and energy storage solutions as well as on the track.
