EvenTS what have we been up to lately... The last race of the season was held in the beginning of October. NovaBike was nonetheless quite busy! Apart from finding NovaBike on the racetrack, the chances are that you bump into the Delftsche Racing Team at fairs, open houses and other events. Below you can read about some of these events, in which NovaBike participated, that took place earlier this year.
Energy Festival 2012 Delft, 20th of September 2012 The Energy Festival is held annually by The Energy Club. At this event one can take a look at the various projects of the TU Delft concerning sustainable energy. The bio-ethanolracing raceteam was also present. Unfortunately without the Novabike (as it was in Assen for a race).
Open Houses TU Delft Delft, 19th and 22nd of October 2012 On Friday the 19th and Monday the 22nd of October the Open House of the TU Delft took place. Lots of highschool students and their parents paid a visit to Delft. Technical studies are cool and NovaBike it the proof for it! Where else can you earn studypoints by racing? Indeed, there was certainly no lack of interest in NovaBike!
Opening Dreamhall & UfD-prize award ceremony Delft, 31st of October The Dreamhall - home of NovaBike and the other TU Delft studentprojects - had never been formally opened. Untill Wednesday the 31st of October. The TU Delft organized a grand opening by inviting alumni, students, parents, teachers and hundreds of other guests to the Dreamhall. Also, at this opening the award ceremony took place for the best teammember by the University Fund Delft

Professional Motorsport World Expo 2012 Cologne (Germany), 14th of November 2012 The alarms were going off early for a small group of NovaBikers on Wednesday the 14th of November. They left early in the morning to the Professional Motorsport World Expo in Cologne (Germany). Havig a look at the lastest developments, gathering information and looking for sponsorships. It was a busy and a very valuable day!
Master Event TU Delft Delft, 22nd of November 2012 The Technical University of Delft organized a open house for Master students. NovaBike was requested to be present at this event, which they gladly granted! The Novabike was prepped, washed and waxed. Dutch students, but also international students, laid their eyes on the Novabike and were hopefully persuaded to do their Master at the TU Delft.
Training at Zandvoort Zandvoort, 23rd of November 2012 It was time to burn some rubber with Ricardo van Duijn on the Novabike again! This time on the track in Zandvoort. Various adjustments were done to the bike, such as the suspension and the engine mapping, for testing purposes. This gave valuable data for the future (and development). Unfortunately the weather was typical Dutch.
Autosportdagen: Speed & Action Gorinchem, 15th and 16th of December 2012 For the second time the Autosportdagen took place in Gorinchem. Despite the name suggests, motorcycles were also a big part of the fair. NovaBike attended the fair with their own stand for two days. The great variety of visitors (and the extremely friendly collegues) at the fair, made it a great success!
