The University of Liverpool Velocipede Team has once again set out to challenge itself by taking part in the incredibly ambitious project of breaking a land speed record for a human powered vehicle.
ARION5 is the fifth iteration of the University of Liverpool’s Velocipede project and this time we are going back to the drawing board by designing a tricycle capable of competing in the multi-track single rider category at the World Human Powered Speed Challenge competition in Battle Mountain, Nevada 2019.
This project is now in the manufacturing with testing starting late July. As we will be racing a multitrack bicycle, our design will be inherently different to its predecessors in many ways. By spending the last 2 years building on the knowledge and skills developed in previous projects, and through massive amounts of dedication and commitment, we are confident that we can produce the fastest vehicle possible and achieve some great results!
