Australian Electric Superbikes

Forget everything you know about electric vehicles and take a ride with Victor Fenech on his journey to understand Electric Superbike Racing. This four-part TV series offer's you a glimpse at a racing future where every second counts. A future where there are no predefined rules and no off-the-shelf solutions.

Built by independent privateers on a fledgling budget in workshops across the country, these electric machines are competing at 600cc racing speeds. This amazing accomplishment is backed by the passion and dedication of a small but growing number of electrical engineers whose challenge is to build the ultimate, electric racer.

Watch as Victor follows the teams in an effort to understand the technology that is breaking taboos and lap times on circuits across the world. A technology that challenges the status quo and provides the undeniable evidence that electric racing is not only for the future. It's happening right here, right now.

The first episode of Australian Electric Superbikes will be broadcast on Monday 30th September at 8:30pm on www.tvs.org.au (http://www.tvs.org.au)
