Ever wondered what it would be like to race a Gocycle on track? Read on.
We joined e-mobility specialists Move Electric for an exhilarating all-electric spectacular that saw seven production EV lap records set in one day at Brands Hatch race circuit.
The award-winning Gocycle G4 set the inaugural e-bike record, completing a lap of the former home of the British Grand Prix in just 3mins 19 secs.
G4 was well equipped for the job with its automotive-inspired design features including built-in traction control and bespoke MotoGP-inspired treaded tyres that are infused with silica compound for superior grip and sure-footed handling.
Gocycle Engineer Tom Dowrick took to the saddle of the G4 for the record-breaking lap, flattening the steep elements of the circuit with the aid of the powerful G4drive™ electric motor.
Tom Dowrick, Gocycle Engineer, said: “Riding around Brands Hatch on our Gocycle e-bike was an awesome experience, something I’ll remember for a long time. It was amazing to have set the inaugural e-bike lap record at such an iconic circuit. I’m very pleased I was on an e-bike as those hills would have been a real challenge otherwise.”
Gocycle was joined by an eclectic mix of electric vehicles including a Tesla Model 3, Citroen E-Dispatch van, Perry eHopper scooter, Silence electric moped, Apex Predator skateboard and a converted classic Rolls-Royce Phantom.
