Newsletter of June 2020

This should have been the month where we left for Imatra, Finland for our first race of the season. However, due to covid-19 this was not to be. Instead, this month was all about testing and getting ready to test. The engineers have made long days and big steps are made to get everything in order for racing!


As we cannot race in Imatra, Finland we have to make due with the photos of the empty track and look forward to racing there in 2021!
While our year is coming to an end, the next team is about to start! This month a new team has been formed, eager to continue our mission. Next month we will have our first meetings and discuss the future plans!

A word from our Chief Chassis

The last month has been very busy for the team, as the covid-19 virus restrictions have been partially lifted we have been able to make up for some lost time. Because more of our engineers could be present at our workplace a lot has been done. The battery pack and electro motor are now fully assembled and ready to go!
Sadly we did not yet reach our monthly goal. The Apex-RS is still heavily worked on, because of safety reasons it was not responsible to go to the dyno at this stage. However, we are very much determined to finish the motorcycle before the end of the next month!

A word from our Chief Powertrain

This month we worked really hard towards the dyno test and we made a lot of progress. The battery pack is fully assembled and ready for the dyno test. All the electronics are placed inside the bike and the wiring harness is connected to all these electrical components.
Before we can go to the dyno, all the PCBs should be able to communicate with each other and important data for the dyno, such as the voltages of the cells, the temperature of the cells and the temperature of the cooling cycles, should be able to be displayed on the display screen of the bike.
Our software engineer is working hard to ensure that everything is tested and that the powertrain is safe for the dyno test. We are really looking forward for the dyno to see how the Apex performs.
