Following the ZeroTracer in France Feb 2011

On day 79 of the Zero Race (around the world in 80 days) I met up with the teams at Valence fire station and then drove with Tobi Wülser and Frank Loacker in their Designwerk ZeroTracer up to the next overnight stop in Le Bourget du Lac, near Chambéry. This shot was taken near Valence with my little Olympus snapper, in my left hand, while driving the Genesis FF motorcycle with my right. PNB

The worlds most efficient road vehicle

Look at that. Already older than the average life of most motorcycles. X-prize class winner, all electric, production vehicle design. Have you seen this Elon Musk? Are you going to Mars to avoid doing something sensible like this, or are you afraid it'll take sales off your great big cars?

I'm not suggesting the ZeroTracer is perfect, or that it couldn't be easily improved. But it is the most relevent road vehicle currently in existance and any road vehicle manufacturer not actively considering how to do it better is wasting their time and our resources! I'm being polite obviously...

Good picture too.

Triumph Parts in ZeroTracer, shock!

As explained in the caption to the ZeroTracer photo that I took at the triumphant finish in Geneva, the ZeroTracer has Triumph Rocket III wheels and suspension, possibly made in dear old Blighty (unless they come from Thailand, or somewhere else!).
