Aussie snowboarding legend, Darren Powell, has been confirmed as test rider for powersports startup Scarpar. "We're really proud to have Darren on our team", Scarpar CEO Andrew Fern said. "He's a great athlete and not many people can say they've been over 200kmh / 120 mph on a snowboard", he said. Some testing has taken place already with further performance testing scheduled for September 2011 just before the field trials. Darren said, "I was a bit dubious about something with an electric motor. Honestly, I was thinking wheel-chairs have electric motors", he laughed. "The power of the prototype gained my instant respect though. It was a massive surprise", he said, finishing by saying. "it was enormously powerful. I definitely was concentrating when I was on it. This is just a great project and I can't wait to see the release product out there. It's going to blow everyone away!"
