EVO Design Solutions is bringing 2 different models of their TTXGP entry:
EV-0 RR (twin GMS-M1 motor, carbon monocoque construction, lithium based battery technology, micro generator)
EV-0 R (single GMS-M1 motor, carbon monocoque construction, lithium based battery technology)
UK team EVO Design Solutions is based in Grantham, Lincolnshire, in the East Midlands. The EVO team will be entering three bikes into the TTXGP – the EV0-R (Open Class x2) and the EV0-RR (Pro Class). Olie Linsdell will ride the Pro Class entry, while Paul Owens and 7-times TT winner Mick Grant will ride the Open Class bikes.
Rick Simpson, Director at EVO Design Solutions Ltd, said, “We are trying to highlight the all British design, manufacture and race team. The motor, chassis and control systems are all developed and built in the UK. The race is already being billed as the new ‘Battle of the Transatlantic’ with the US ‘Mission One’ entry. We have Mick Grant and Peter Williams in the team who were both influential in the Transatlantic challenges in the ‘70s”. We are very excited about the opportunity to design a motorcycle for such a prestigious event and that may very well be the forerunner to the way motorsport will be shaped in the future.”
Ollie Linsdell, rider in the Pro Class category for EVO Design Solutions said: “By the end of my riding career this is going to be the way to go, so it seemed sensible for me to get involved and help make it work.”
