Mission Motors participated in REFUEL on June 26th 2011, a Time Trial event for clean power vehicles at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Our rider, Steve Rapp, took the track on the Mission R and set a new EV motorcycle lap record of 1:43.7. The event was an excellent opportunity to test and hone our latest electric vehicle technology. By continuing to push the boundaries of our technology on the racetrack, we improve the efficiency and reliability of the components in our client's vehicles.
We would like to thank our sponsors and partners who make our racing effort possible: Texas Instruments, Pro Italia Motorcycles, Solid Concepts, Dunlop, SpeedyMoto, Ohlins, Cosworth, Motonium, Kosman, RADD and GoPro. We would also like to thank our crew chief, Chuck Warren, and our rider, Steve Rapp. Last but not least, we would like to thank Speed Ventures for putting together such a great event.
