North One TV approached epm with a view to setting a new world record for the furthest distance covered in 24 hours on a tandem bike. This was for the Channel 4 TV series, Speed with Guy Martin.
What we did
Using our expertise and knowledge that has helped us build F1 cars for many years, we helped with the design work and manufactured the monocoque and bodywork from carbon fibre. We tailored the lay up of the carbon fibre to make the tandem as light as possible whilst still retaining its strength.
Guy Martin joined forces with fellow long distance mountain biker, Jason Miles, they managed to set a new world record of a staggering 565 miles in 24 hours round the Goodwood motor-racing track. The programme was aired on channel 4, Speed with Guy Martin on the 26th October 2014.
