GTrikes Powerswitch Clean sweeps at Maryborough and takes 5th Design and Constructon win in 5 years.
Wow what an amazing weekend the 25th RACV Energy Breakthrough
was! After a huge year behind the scenes it was just fantastic for our EEV Powerswitch built with Rode RAGE
to take out not only the EEV section and our category by 71laps but also the overall line honours just edging out an incredible fast and consistent Woodleigh in the last hour. Along the way we took Pole Position (at an average of 49km/h) and also won Design and Construction and Display and Presentation. This was GTrikes 5th Design and Construction win in 5 years.
We were well represented across all categories with almost 10% of all HPV vehicles at the event having passed through our workshop doors at some stage. St Martins HPV Team
had a fantastic run with their brand new Fluteus Corfluter taking 2nd on the grid and ended up second at the end of their 8hr trial and also being Tryathlon Open runners up and even held the lead of the trial for a period of time!
Throughout the year we've also worked very closely with St Margaret's and Berwick Grammar to help them construct and build their vehicles and in particular use our knowledge of the Resin Infusion process to build them light, strong and safe fairings with them from their own molds. They had a great race with their all Female team Pegasus Winning their category with a clean sweep and their open team PerZeus And their B1 team Chyrsaor both being runners up in their category.
GTrikes Nemo Clean sweeps at Maryborough and takes 4th Design and Constructon win
in 4 years.
After a huge year here at GTrikes we wish to congratulate
everyone who participated in the 2014 RACV Energy Breakthrough and especially
to all those teams who rode GTrikes. With the last 12 months spent either
Building trikes or participating with Rode RAGE on their Reef Rode RAGE it was
a welcome relief for the weekend to come and now go. With over 10 vehicles across
all tracks it was a great showing of GTrikes and with more vehicles already ordered
we are really excited for 2015
Special Mention needs to go to Rode RAGE with their Hybrid
Vehicle Nemo who claimed a clean sweep across their category over the weekend
winning Design & Construction, Display & Presentation, Trial Win,
Overall win, Overall Trial Win of the Hybrid Section and capturing the fastest
lap of the race. Building upon their success in the event last year, we sat
down with the team and set about making improvements to the vehicle that cultimated
in a 4000km ride to QLD and then their success over the weekend.
GTrikes wins at Maryborough and Wins 3rd Design And Construction Award in 3 Years!!!
Congratulations to Rode R.A.G.E on their dominating win in the Hybrid 1 open class on the weekend! Using a customized GTrikes Paragon chassis with a crank mounted electric assist motor in our ever reliable Carbon Kevlar Hybrid weave fairing the team powered to an astonishing win by 44 laps! This win was made even more remarkable by the team only having 5 riders! Riding with determination the guys managed to race against the odds. The vehicles name Leurn Leurn is a Khmer word from Cambodia that means Fast Fast and that’s exactly what it was with the vehicle holding the fastest lap of the race at 1.27 for a period time. The team not only won the trial and Overall but also managed to claim a win in Design and Constructions, our 3rd in three years!
After using Leurn Leurn as a test bed for the new motor we will now turn to designing and building our 2014 Carbon Fibre Monocoque that we will be riding from Ballarat to Port Douglas in September next year. We will also be offering Hybrid commuter Trikes for sale from after Easter next year so feel free to contact us for more information.
