‘Warwick Moto’ is the University’s newest student led extra-curricular project, which aims to develop, build and race an electric motorcycle at one of the world’s most recognised motorsport events; The Isle of Man TT (IOM TT).
The IOM TT has a global audience of 26 million people and since 2010 the race has seen the introduction of an electric class – TT Zero, which sees some of the most technically advanced motorcycle builders and engineering companies from around the world pitted against student-based University teams who operate with a fraction of the budget. TT Zero is one of the only competitions in the world where students can compete against professional teams on a level field. The latest addition to these student teams is our very own Warwick Moto, who Engineering Society is proud to support.
The team was established in May’19 and aims to race their first motorcycle in June’20, making them the only student team who enter the race with only 8 months in development while setting a competitive lap time. They are the smallest in terms of the number of students involved, but recruit team members on a rolling basis and also hold regular recruitment events. Regardless of your course, level of education and prior experience, if this is something that interests you, they would be more than happy to hear from you. If you would like to know more about the project or stay up to date with their achievements and progress, follow them on the social media channels below.
We’re really excited to be working with Warwick Moto this year who’ve set themselves a really ambitious target and offer the chance to develop a variety of engineering and business skills. Perfect if you want to learn about something new or put your passion for motor racing into practice.
