Yates, who is best known for his "two wheels good" antics by creating and racing electric superbikes, has now officially upped the ante by building and flying his one-off electric airplane past 5 world records.
Chip Yates! The name oozes "adrenaline freak," doesn't it? Or maybe "a capella group alumni chairman." Regardless, the SWIGZ team's driver recently pushed a 241HP electric bike to 190MPH from a standing start in under 30 seconds—and strapped a camera to his helmet to prove it.
