  • Platt Racing HPV Trike

    12 Sept 2011: A comment from Maurie Platt last year that we should consider designing a trike for his team became one of those "careful what you wish for" moments when he opened a package containing a prototype Trump Trike front wheel drive, 3 wheel steer recumbent HPV for testing. That was only a month ago so obviously too soon to say whether it's a good thing or just a distraction for his busy team but so far it has been fairly quick and easy to ride with no failures. Despite being so new, the team decided to enter it for the Murray Bridge 24 hr race so Maurie, Cameron qnd Emily have been busy crafting a new core-flute body and race prepping it as only they can. Such a leap into the unknown is very brave(!) as they had developed their "SLR" into a very fast and reliable weapon. I am really humbled and hope it all works. If so, there will be many developments to come, including possibly chassis kits for others to try as we progress the design further. The sooner we put them out there the sooner reliability, price and technical support will reach a sweet spot.
