Here's a short video that Paul Oesten-Creasey put together, showing, not too much. of Monoliner performing at Mira. Looks like cooling shouldn't be a problem...
To see the full picture get on to project leader Colin Russell and offer to sponsor the race project!
Seat base below 20", seat back (just) electric drive. What more could you ask for? Apart from leg and weather protection, the rest of the seatback, proper steering and decent range - but as thousands of people buy motorcycles without any of those features this may be the best you can expect in 2015!
Ok, ok, no seat back/s but it looks really stable - and should be faster than a stock Vespa
Sorry this event take place in France so people are speaking french...
In the course of building Monoliner Colin Russell encountered the "Niche Vehicle Network", a branch of the Technology Support Board. This is a British State body tasked with promoting "Disruptive, low Carbon vehicle technology" that will reduce energy use and provide opportunities for British innovation and industry. Promotion, with money - around £1.4billion.
It's not a car, let alone an electric car (looking forward to BMW new E-car appearing on this site any moment) but here's some footage of the 2010 Cmax on it's recent visit to Bristol. This was a major editing job - 75% of the original footage showed it stopped at traffic lights, Bristol Councils "Stop all Traffic" policy starting to "work" here. Visitors to Grat. Rd. may also note the new route needed, but it's the second left turn, not the first. The Genius responsible is one Mark Bradshaw, if he ever gets to be minister of transport you'll need a skateboard.
Are you building a full-on FF racer? Why not? everybody else seems to be!

Some video shot from FJ, compiled by Ian Kew, during a trip to bewilder the Bristol branch of the institute of Advanced Motorcyclists - who turned up in cars...
Interesting look at ultra-lightweight FF performance, and novel engineering solutions.
Here are some ambituous claims, based on believable performance and weight figures. Vapourware?

Some interesting results from this competition for lightweight streamliners that may over-excite diesel enthusiasts.
2010 Cmax motors back to the new garage. No electric drive, no outriggers or full enclosure, just a simple FF.
Here's a professional video showing the newest offering from Peraves. Probably the most efficient EV in existence, and one of the fastest.
