Thanks to Plod , Minidaz , RadioMarty ,Matt and RetroAndy for coming along to form TeamC5alive at this years AER

ElectricDave had a superb time with the c-500 beating two of the the BVS electric motorbikes and coming close to some big budget sponsored entries. Plod took some excellent footage of electricDave in action on the track so hopefully he will get to post it on here soon. Just goes to show using scrap parts to build your vehicle can still get excellent results - especially if you've got the know-how which, luckily for us, isnt a problem for ElectricDave  8) It would have been nice to see "challenger" allowed take to the main drag strip again , especially as several slower vehicles were permitted onto the track  :-\ , something I'll discuss with the organisers for next years event .

There were several highlights of the day, for me it was meeting Cedric Lynch and chatting to him about his Isle of Man success and watching the gasps of amazement as his home built bike (made in 1991) managed 64mph on the track  :) Having a ride around the site as part of the c5alive posse was also a good laugh and it certainly got us noticed.

We have already been invited back to next years event so that will be included in the diary for sure.  A great day out for everyone.

Hope you all had fun though. See you another time I hope  8)
