VIDEO: Chad's electric TT dream

MCN’s Adam ‘Chad’ Child made history last week by completing the first lap of the Isle of Man TT course on a production electric motorcycle. His unofficial lap record was just over 74mph average.

Since then, Chad has improved his lap time by just a little over two minutes with the speed almost at 81mph, on a completely standard, road legal machine.

Tomorrow marks the final laps, here’s a quick update from Chad with how the bike has been performing and what he’s expecting tomorrow.
