Prospective students attending an open evening at a secondary school in Ely were greeted by a staff member cruising around in a Sinclair C5. 

Students around the Ely College site saw Dave Bausor, a lead practitioner for design and technology at the school touring around different subject areas in the vehicle. 

The Sinclair C5 is described as ‘a small one-person battery electric recumbent tricycle which was the culmination of Sir Clive Sinclair’s long-running interest in electric vehicles.’

“The students found my grand tours hilarious; I managed to shoot past most subjects,” said Dave. 

“I almost ran the principal, Simon Warburton over too!
