TT 2018: MCN's Adam Child to compete in TT Zero
MCN’s Senior Road Tester Adam Child will return to the Isle of Man to compete in the TT Zero for the second year running. Adam will once again be competing on a bike supplied by MotoCorsa, based in Gillingham, Dorset.
Child made history at the TT last year when the team completed the first ever lap of the 37.73-mile mountain course on a road legal production electric motorcycle and went on to finish sixth in the race.
Last year’s MotoCorsa machine was a 258kg electric bike with very few alterations. The number plate and headlights were removed for safety reasons; other than that it was a completely standard road bike. This year the team have reduced weight and gained valuable help from K-Tech suspension. The team know they won’t be battling for a win, but hope to improve on last year’s time and further highlight what is achievable on a standard road bike.
