With the Austrian Grand Prix providing a superb display of racing at the beautiful Red Bull Ring, and the British Grand Prix lining-up next weekend, AWE and Base Performance Simulators (BPS) are providing the petrol heads in the industry with the chance to compete in the inaugural AWE & BPS Sprint Cup – a fastest sim lap competition!
With the professional grade Blade simulator set up in AWE’s HQ in Epsom, and with customers booking in private demo visits, AWE is bringing out integrators’ competitive sides as they go head-to-head against the benchmark BPS Pro and fellow industry colleagues. Participants will get up to a 30 minute drive including a 20 minute timed sprint session to record their best flying lap of the Brands Hatch GP circuit in an Aston Martin Vantage GT4 spec car, and have their lap time recorded on the leaderboard. This will be displayed in the AWE Show Apartment and available to view online.
The top three qualifying drivers will get to enjoy private driver tuition with the pro’s at Base Performance Simulators in the BPS GT and BPS Single-Seater simulators, both of which provide a highly authentic experience and are used by professional drivers. After 1-2-1 tuition by the pro engineers at BPS, a final fastest lap shoot-out will take place with the winner taking home a trophy and massive kudos of being the winner of the inaugural AWE & BPS Sprint Cup!
Running from now until October, get in gear and register to take part – book your visit and place on the participant driver sheet HERE.
