Not quite, not with AT anyway. A motor is when you have parts that move and cause others around them to move, causing motion. Most motors need electricity to work, but AT motors run from the energy made by the wheels spinning. The wheels spin, and generate the power that makes the motor start. [It's complicated]
It does though. [He smiles at that] You have to be very fit and train a lot. I haven't practised for a long time, so I'm trying to get back to where I was when I was really good at AT.
