About this event

Cedric Lynch is the Chief Scientist at Saietta, and the inventor of the award-winning Lynch Motor.  He designed this revolutionary electric motor without a university education, taught himself electrical engineering and developed one of the world's leading motors in terms of power and mass.  Cedric invented the motor that changed the face of electric motor architecture.  Saietta means ‘thunderbolt’ in the Italian Apennine dialect of Saietta’s Co-Founder Lawrence Marrazzi.

Niall Johanson, Head of Sales at Saietta, will give a brief history of the Saietta axial flux DC contact motor and how it has reached its current development.  He will explain how the motor achieves its performance and its use in a variety of applications.
He will cover the Lynch Motor’s use in Saietta racing and road motorcycles and the success these bikes have had.
Niall will also outline where these motors are likely to be used.
Further background information is available at these two Wikipedia sites shown below.



Niall Johanson has worked in motorsport and high-performance engineering all his adult life.  In the 1980s he manufactured a small racing and track car called the “Leader”. After his cars won six consecutive national championships, Niall progressed into Formula One engineering where he specialised in hydraulics and fluid transfer systems for almost all the teams before moving on to project leading the preparation of the engine block for a multi championship winning F1 engine. Now, at the age of sixty, he is still fascinated by advanced engineering and his favourite phrase is, “every day is a school day!”.
