Team TW4XP: About Telemetry Data and the First Race

Some people asked us about the Competition Tracker and the Telemetry Data. We think that the submission of this data is a really good idea, which will show how efficient the vehicles are at every moment of the tests. Unfortually the submission doesn’t seem to work properly yet. Here is a “live”-report from Matt Childress, [...]

Project TW4XP: fifth movie: Impressiones from the Endurance Testing

Rolling rolling rolling … Some people would say, driving in cycles is boring. I would say, these people never saw prototypes like these in action. Have fun! Rolling, rolling, rolling… Manche Leute würden sagen, im Kreis zu fahren ist langweilig. Ich würde sagen, diese Menschen haben noch nie Prototypen wie diese in Aktion gesehen. Ich [...]

Project TW4XP – fourth movie: Wrapping up the vehicle

TW4XP will do the Shakedown tests on the 16. – 18. of June.

Maybe you noticed: The volcanic eruption in Iceland has taught us too to be humble. When nature strikes back we are powerless: the flight of our competition vehicle was delayed. After our first shock we were relieved to learn that at least one other European team had the same problems and that the X Prize [...]

Jihei! Awsome, wonderful, a fantastic feeling!

Jihei! Awsome, wonderful, a fantastic feeling! My first drive with the completed competition vehicle! Now I try to find a way of describing it… and I realise that it is already described on our web site: Our vision that we want to make come true: Imagine driving through the countryside, the wind in your hair [...]

Project TW4XP – second movie: First Test Drive

We were really looking forward to this: The first test drives! It handles brilliantly, the steering is great, and when the hull is finally fitted, we won’t need gloves and helmet anymore. What a great feeling to drive a vehicle that you have helped designing and to know that you are writing a bit of [...]
