Buckeye Current's Podium Finish
The Buckeye Current Electric Motorcycle Team at the Ohio State University shocked the racing world with a ground shattering 3rd place finish in their inaugural effort at the 2013 TT Zero. The student formed, student run team applied their engineering education to create the cutting edge, all electric motorcycle RW-2 that dominated the brutal Snaefell Mountain Course at the Isle of Man, averaging 90.43 mph. This cements Buckeye Current as the fastest collegiate electric motorcycle team. The team looks to carry this momentum to the 2014 TT Zero.
Buckeye Current was founded as the Buckeye Electric Motorcycle Race Team by students in 2010 through the Ohio State University's Center for Automotive Research in order to provide students experience with electric vehicles and to construct a fully operable electric motorcycle to compete in races on both the national and international level. The team's first motorcycle, RW-1, set a speed record for electric motorcycles at the East Coast Timing Association at Maxton, North Carolina, at 112 miles per hour before resetting it at Wilmington, Ohio, at 144 miles per hour.
