Yes , as John says , it is the same Fiesta that he saw when I took it to the Tour of Prestigne event in May. It is the ex LMC conversion, then modified by Dennis Doeffel and David Webb. I'm trying to make it even more reliable and safe, and increase its performance slightly. Although I'm not plannin...

My Fiesta EV was stolen for use as a getaway car !

Hard to believe this, my wife went out in the morning last week to use the Electric Fiesta van as she does routinely, and it was no longer in the drive ! As the events became clearer, it seems our quiet crime free Herefordshire border town had been where a police investigasting lorry theft from mid ...

Tour de Prestigne and Green Wheels 2008

Much improved weather and a high turnout at what is becoming a very popular event for electric bikers.
My electric Fiesta had many visitors and we spread the word for this forum and the BVS.

karting update

Quite good access from north and west.Had a trial session this week and I can confirm that they are still electric and they do go well.(I think I overheated mine though !) They have some opening o...

Karting ?

I contacted Teamworks karting, and received a very efficient response. The new track in Reading will be open from beginning of July, they are definately still using all electric go karts identical to those in Birmingham with 8.4kw Lemco motors. They will be doing some testing prior to opening, and t...

EV credit for generated power

I think the difficulty of claiming for the generated power increases as you get to be a bigger generator. There are cut off points at less than 6kw (and generating < 5Mwh) per year, then again at 30 kw, and then into the big players at 75kw.But for most domestic installs , particularly for PV panels...

Good Energy

We've been with Good Energy since july 2005. Still seem like the best choice in the UK although others catching up. Confusing claim and crediting procedure though, hopefully improved this year.The payback is now much better since last October at 9p per kwh, previously 4.5p

Electric Karts

Seems like a fine combination to me, karting, a bit more karting, then maybe a quick chat about EV's before some more karting. Although since I'm currently at 95kg I think the weight penalty idea is attractive. Brum or London might be ok - just depends when. I think I make it seven people interested...
