F1 driver receives a one-of-a-kind electric bike, manufactured by German specialists Storck Bicycle GmbH

On the eve of this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix, Cosworth presented AT&T Williams driver Rubens Barrichello with a state-of-the-art Storck electric bike in commemoration of his 300th Grand Prix race weekend, which he is celebrating in Spa-Francorchamps.



The one-of-a-kind electric bike, manufactured by German specialists Storck Bicycle GmbH, carries Cosworth branding with a navy blue and white colour scheme akin to that of the Williams-Cosworth FW32, as well as being adorned with the special logo created by the team to honour Barrichello’s landmark of 300 Formula One races.



The bike was personally delivered to the Spa paddock by company founder Markus Storck and was presented to Rubens during a well attended celebration organised by AT&T Williams and hosted in their hospitality unit.



The Raddar Multiroad Carbon with Raddar 3.6 system is less than 18kg in weight with a carbon fibre frame, 250W sport specification Swiss-made electric motor, advanced gear shift electronics and hydraulic disc brakes,

the bike is one of the highest performers available today and mirrors perfectly the high-tech attributes shared by Cosworth, AT&T Williams and Formula One. It is a versatile and well-rounded piece of equipment, the

perfect gift for a driver who has amassed 11 Formula One wins, 68 podiums, 637 points and 14 pole positions since his debut Formula One race in the 1993 South African Grand Prix.



Mark Gallagher, General Manager of Cosworth’s F1 Business Unit: “It is an absolute pleasure for Cosworth to be a part of Rubens’s 300th Grand Prix celebrations and to present him with this unique Storck bicycle. Cosworth

and Storck Bicycles have a close relationship and this bike embodies the pursuit of technical excellence that Formula One is all about. It is this pursuit of excellence that has also taken Rubens to an incredible 300 Grand

Prix events, so we thought it a fitting gift to celebrate his impressive F1 career to date.”



Markus Storck, Founder of Storck Bicycle GmbH: “Formula One racing is all about achieving technical precision and perfection, key elements in the DNA of Storck Bicycle GmbH. I am honoured to have been asked by Cosworth to

present one of our highest performing products to one of the highest performing men in motor racing, Rubens Barrichello, as he celebrates 300 Grands Prix this weekend.”
