Fifteen drivers attended our recent Licence Upgrade Course at Silverstone, everyone upgrading to Motorsport UK National A status using Silverstone’s Race School, Instructors and fifteen race prepared Mazda MX5’s.
Five races took place, around Silverstone’s National layout, in mixed weather conditions, with all fifteen drivers finishing all five races with some interesting race action demonstrated too!
The event was run by British Automobile Racing Club [BARC] and was a joint venture with the Ferrari Challenge UK drivers.
Barclays brought sixty guests over the three days to undertake an “Introduction to Motorsport” experience with rides in the Jaguar Project 8 and a simulator experience with iZone.
Series Elite tested fifteen more prospective clients in our Project 8 race car under the guidance of our senior Coach, and experienced racer, Ray Grimes.
Series Elite Founder, Graeme Glew, commented; “Organising a fast track licence course over three days was never going to be easy.
“To have potential drivers testing our Series Elite Project 8 and sixty VIP guests undertaking our introduction to motorsport experience was always going to be challenging.
“The weather was kind and all fifteen competitors now have their National A licence. Good result.”
