This Competition strengthens its international role in promoting the development of university talent in the technology sector.
The MotoStudent Electric Category will race with motors supplied by the technology center in a clear commitment to sustainable mobility and young talent.
MotoStudent reinforces its alliance with the CIRCE technology center, which will supply the electric motors for the first time in the VII Edition of the International Competition, promoted by TechnoPark MotorLand in Aragon and the Moto Engineering Foundation. In this way, the technology center becomes the official supplier of this category, materializing its commitment to sustainable mobility and young talent.
The MotoStudent Electric category will race with the CIRCE-MS2223 motor, with a peak torque of 120Nm and 48kW of maximum power, ready to reach speeds of up to 7500rpm with a weight of only 26 kg. In addition, the power unit increases its technical specifications thanks to its improved thermal behavior with a liquid cooling system. The entity offers the best guarantees with technical assistance during the course of the competition and physically at the Final Event in autumn 2023. It is also committed to MotoStudent's objective regarding talent, supporting the training of the participants in the handling of this technology for their knowledge and safety.
MotoStudent establishes a collaboration with the CIRCE technology center to share its mission and help students to apply all the knowledge acquired during their university studies in a real industrial project. MotorLand Aragón will be the scenario where the real prototypes of racing motorbikes that will be designed, developed and manufactured by the participants. This initiative is positioned as one of the most challenging projects for students in technical fields, who have to demonstrate their creativity and capacity for innovation in competition with other university teams from all over the world. It is also remarkable for its multidisciplinary component, given the involvement of social science branches in securing sponsors or managing the budgets of each university group.
This collaborative process allows CIRCE to strengthen the development of technological solutions that help to move towards efficient, safe, connected and low environmental impact mobility in a decarbonized scenario. This is achieved by influencing the entire industrial value chain of mobility systems, from optimizing the manufacture of vehicles and component suppliers to collaboration with public administrations.
Both initiatives from Aragón bring together similar values, being pioneers in research, innovation, talent development and interest in sustainable mobility. As Arturo Aliaga, president of the MEF Foundation and vice-president of the Government of Aragon, declared: "This collaboration is a source of pride for our community and it means maintaining our aspiration for TechnoPark to become a benchmark in research and training in the automotive sector. We have been meeting challenges and projects such as MotoStudent and this new alliance show that research will be one of the key elements for the future of our motor city".
The general director of CIRCE, Andrés Llombart, explained: "The collaboration between MotoStudent and CIRCE is natural because of the commitment of the technology center with young talent. The aim of our involvement in this competition is to act as a natural link between the scientific-technical training of the participants and the implementation of what they have learned in a real environment. In other words, to help young talents to begin their journey in the application of innovation in the market".
