Early in 2009, the team took the decision to develop what is
believed to be the world's first bespoke F3 simulator.
Working closely with MAK-Corp, over a twelve month period, and with significant
investment the project developed successfully and the simulator is now in
constant demand by leading F3 drivers from all teams.
Of course, our own Team West-Tec drivers have priority and also enjoy features
not open to others, and we have also established a programme to allow us to
work with young drivers from the junior series, like Formula Ford, Formula
Renault and Intersteps, to help develop them for the future and ensure that
they are ready to seize their opportunity when they eventually get behind the
wheel of a Formula 3 car.
