Today I am permitted to share some announcements regarding engine technology and the partners involved in the systems used. Let's start this blog with the exciting news that I have been officially approved to share with you all. Toxic emissions are down and useable power up. The extensive testing and in-depth research to which has been conducted and demanded over a 12 month period within Europe has used some brand new technology that has been specifically designed to improve and increase the power output on the "Manx GT" which will be provided with a 85bhp twin cylinder engine that is very efficient and capable of reducing emissions by up to 80% over conventional four stroke engines. This has a major feature of reduced service intervals due to lack of carbon build up and more efficient fuel chamber and combustion burning process . This is a world first and for Hovercraft is a 100% unique feature that is exclusive to the Hoverpod and as we have been saying for a while, "Rome was not built in a day" and patience and persistence will always provide a positive result in the end. In F1 Hoverpod Racing's case, it's provided a World Beating Result to which when launched will take the Hoverpod into a different league.
At this point, I need to share with you a few words about our technology partners. The first of these is a world beating engine manufacturer and power plant technology centre that provided a platform of testing and "Grade A" research teams that is in a class of its own. The fuel system has undergone extensive development and testing, once again this was within Europe and the UK in order to develop an engine management software system that provides the maximum benefits in order to create the perfect solution for balance and power. The fuel efficiency combined with the power provided by the engine technology brings together a perfect harmony of instant response and super efficient emission reduction. "Once again, this is a world first for F1 Hoverpod".
The fuel storage tank and refuelling system has been developed by a co-operating between a the World's Number One within this key area who specialise in this light weight materials design who's development team is based in Norway. This Partnership and collaboration had a working budget of over $5m in order to produce this unique system and F1 Hoverpod Ltd will be the very first vehicle in the world to use this system on a production vehicle. The result of this combination in which the customer is the beneficiary is a super light and very versatile craft that has class beating power ratios and a world beating emission reduction. "Wow".
It only leaves the team at F1 Hoverpod Manufacture Ltd with one a single thing left to do and for us to do and is the most important one of all. It is a humble message to all the development centres involved for all of their hard work and commitment to the project and a Huge Thank You to you all from all the whole team at F1 Hoverpod Racing.
