The team, which consists of 34 students studying engineering will design and build a bike to compete in the MotoE season in the summer of 2017. They are aiming to be the first university team to pass the 100mph average speed barrier for the Isle of Man TT Zero course and to improve on the two podium finishes achieved in last year's race series by their predecessors. Under the terms of the agreement Newbury Innovation and its sister company Newbury Electronics will work with the students and provide PCBs up to a value of £500.
