First on the list is the Ramsgate Sprint revival over the weekend of 15/16 August. I was looking at spectating (having seen it in the VMCC newsletter) the same day that an invite to take the bike arrived. I'll be taking the original bike along to this event, plus they've asked me to bring my KH125 two-stroke sprinter to add a bit more variety. Details are HERE.
Note: I might need a pair of hands to help out on one or both days at this event. Let me know if you're interested.
Next up, our good friends at APC Hi-Rel have asked if they could borrow the original bike for their exhibition stand at LCV2015 over the 9/10 September. This is the premier Low Carbon Vehicle event in the UK, attracting the mainstream car manufacturers, a host of universities, and everyone who's involved in developing new technology for electric and hybrid vehicles. Details are HERE.
Then I have an offer to display the NEW bike rolling chassis (so there's a deadline, if we need one!) at the Kent Manufacturing and Electronics Expo on the 7th October at the Kent County Showground, Detling. Details are HERE
Just a few days later we have an offer to display the NEW chassis at the Greenpower International Final to be held at Rockingham Raceway on Sunday 11th October. We've signed a deal to provide long-term support to Greenpower as we share so many aims. I'll tell you more about that in a future blog, but you can find out more about them HERE. We'll also be working with them to distribute a series of short video 'tasters' to schools explaining about the bike project and how it works.
Finally we move forward to next January. I'm discussing an opportunity to display the new bike at the Low Carbon Racing Conference and Autosport International at the NEC. It's early days on this one but I hope we can come to an arrangement.
