Catavolt takes world record in Australia

In 2010, the Aussie electric motorcycle team, Team Catavolt, attained the World Landspeed Record for a modified partial electric streamliner at 177 km/h (110 miles per hour). The record took place at the Dry Lakes Racers Association meet at Lake Gairdener in South Australia. For this year's upcoming Speed Week 2011, the team has changed the hubmotor out for four 45 kW (60.35 hp) motors mounted on the swingarm for an attempt at 200 mph (322 km/h) with Jake Dolan piloting the bike.
