Chasing the Impossible

HP4 RACE

For many, limits are the end of the story. For some, they are only the beginning. With the HP4 RACE, we show the passion of those who like to go beyond their limits. Whatever this may entail – it is something that was previously unimaginable.

MADNESS IS TOO THEORETICAL

"
High speed thrill is something racers are always seeking. It's something I think is embedded from an early age, either you have that mindset or you don't.

At 300 km/h in the tunnel. Peter Hickman is kind of person who throws caution to the wind.

You have to be a bit crazy to go round winding street racing tracks at 300 km/h. Peter Hickman says you were either born with it or not. So it's not madness. Because that would be overthinking it. And thinking doesn't get you anywhere. Feeling is the only way to get anywhere. He tells us what feeling resonates inside him when atop the HP4 RACE  here.

The development of a fully carbon frame is no mean feat. Chris Gonschor knows how to do all this in standard production.

Of course, you reach your limits and sometimes have beads of sweat cover your forehead. The trick is to get past this. And this is where passion has a huge role to play. Without passion for the whole thing, for a race bike that has yet to be produced, you will never get past this. Real sport – at the development level too. You can read about what else motivates Chris Gonschor here.

The passion for motorsports first brought him onto the race track and then, well, back to the race track.

As rough as the asphalt on which he feels at home. This would be one way to describe Sepp Mächler. And it's true. Rough surfaces provide more grip and feedback. Every racer knows this. And so it's hardly a surprise that the product manager wishes to be out on the race track. Because this is what the HP4 RACE is made for. Not for the road, not for the garage, but for the raw bends of the race tracks of the world. Read about his first test ride with the HP4 RACE here.
