Catavolt does Australia proud!

Catavolt made TTXGP history this year as the first Australian team to compete at world level in the TTXGP world Final 2012 in Daytona. The weekend was held at probably one of the most challenging circuits for electric bikes in the world and caused many a team to think twice before agreeing to the challenge. However, for this team, the adventure was too good to turn down.

--- KillaJoule 191.448 MPH AMA record confirmed! ---

The KillaJoule record from BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials at Bonneville is now confirmed by AMA! 191.488 MPH (308.1 km/h) making it the world's fastest electric sidecar motorcycle and the world's 4th fastest electric motorcycle of any kind. The record is the average of two consecutive runs, done the same day and in a specific order (you can't just pick any two runs in the same day). The record qualifier run was only 169.786 MPH, while the backup run was 213.190 MPH. The average of these two runs is the new record of 191.488 MPH. The day after these runs, KillaJoule run 216.504 MPH (348.4 km/h) in the flying kilometer and 214.050 MPH in the flying mile, but it wasn't backed up with another run over 200 MPH, so the record is currently below 200 MPH. KillaJoule is now the world's 4th fastest electric motorcycle of any kind in registered official records, and the world's 2nd fastest in official registered top speeds (meaning there is a time slip from a sanctioned event)! ;-) It is also the world's fastest electric sidecar motorcycle, which is has been for the two years now.

This video comes from this article in The Chronicle Herald.  It is worth reading, for sure. Yeah, yeah, I haven’t been very prolific as of late, and I start off with a snarky title to this post ‘aboot’ the Canadian guys, Amarok Racing.  Well, I’m sorry but it’s a bit deserving.  We have patiently been [...]
