This is your big chance to help design the lightest, most efficient racing motorcycle ever made. And win an iPad 2 for your effort. Interested? :)
The challenge, should you accept it, is to re-design the triple clamp for the Amarok P1 zero emission race bike that is competing to win the International Formula 75 TTXGP Championship.
If you beat other engineers, win the competition and your design rocks then the triple clamp you designed will help the lightweight heavy hitter tear up the tarmac already in June in the first race of the series. You get the bragging rights and an iPad 2 as the prize for your efforts.

Rigidity and low weight are of paramount concern. This is a racing bike!
Design must incorporate Amarok Paw brand symbol in raised or relief somewhere on the top surface.
Must be manufacturable by CNC in 6061 aluminium billet.
M6 pinch bolts are used (and required) to clamp the tubes.
Must be one part.
May be Annodized.
The prize for the winner is a brand new iPad 2.
This competition is open to everyone.

The winner will be selected by a joint jury of Amarok Racing and GrabCAD and announced in GrabCAD’s blog.
The goal of Amarok Racing is to compete in and win in the North American Championship of the formula 75 class in 2011. To that end the team has designed and built a ground-up, all new, radically engineered electric racing superbike that changes the paradigm in the industry, in power-to-weight.
TTXGP is the world’s first zero emissions, all electric racing series for motorcycles, pitting innovation, high technology and new thinking against the challenges of high performance, efficient mobility.
GrabCAD is proud to help Amarok Racing to achieve this goal by pooling the collective knowledge and skills of over 4000 engineers.
By the way Amarok is the Inuit word for wolf, hence the paw logo.
