The University of Nottingham's e-Racing team goes from strength to strength, securing the MotoE Championship in 2015 and 2016, and achieving a podium finish and second place at the 2018 TT Zero.

Reaching speeds in excess of 180mph with 12 kWhr of stored energy and peak power of >200kW, the University of Nottingham’s eBike is advancing the frontiers of electric propulsion.

Such achievements would not have been possible without the eBike’s principle rider, Daley Mathison, who sadly died following a crash while racing for the MADMAX Race Team at the 2019 Isle of Man TT.
