Unveiling of Voltron Evo June 3rd at The Bird

Post by jonescg »

Hey everyone,

My electric race bike, Voltron Evo, will be officially unveiled at a fundraiser / shin-dig!

Who? O'Hanlon Electric Motorsport
When? Tuesday 3rd of June, 6 pm.
Where? The Bird, 181 William Street Northbridge.

Mike O'Hanlon is hosting the event, and the AEVA will have a presence on the night too, so if you do come over bring your EV and park nearby. We'll pull the covers off at 7 pm but you can start drinking at 6.

So come along and check out this labour of love (obsession?) and see the future of electric prototype racing!

Yes, despite the West Australian publishing the image and story about 4 days earlier than requested, and leaving out some really important details like who my sponsor is and who will be racing the bike for me, the bike will still be officially unveiled at the Bird on Tuesday night.

You will get to see the bike, fully operational and in it's very parochial West Australian decals. It should be a great night, so get on down from 6 pm.

Thanks James! It was a hoot. If you can help me out with some track time at RAC that would be ace Image

Congratulations Chris. A triumph of determination, brains, and community spirit, over difficult odds. And an audacious design. Best of luck in the competitions.

I expect I'll see you, and Voltron Evo, at Willowbank at the end of the month.

You will! Lots of bugs to iron out and suspension to tweak, but I think we'll be competitive.

You have to take the record for "men in sheds" Chris.
At 9sqm your shed is something to behold!
