Bobby Thompson

British Touring Car Championship (BTCC)

Essex based driver Bobby Thompson has done what many young karters dream of doing…making it to the BTCC. Having competed in the BTCC for the last 3 year Bobby has always been a crowd favourite. His strong background in front wheel drive cars allowed him to take the challenge to becoming the 2020 Jack Sears Trophy winner, but a spectacular accident at Croft left him short and unable to complete the season.

When Bobby's not out in his BTCC machinery he's coaching drivers at the track and even riding shotgun in the Radical SR3XX race car. He's regularly using his simulator in eSports and helping develop his clients remotely.

Assetto Corsa - I have a model set exactly like my BTCC car

The FPZERO Pro II simulator has proven to be a performance enhancing addition to my 2020 BTCC season.

It is brilliant for revising circuit layouts ahead of the upcoming rounds, and because I can have a model set exactly like my BTCC car it enables me to learn and try different things at each circuit without wasting precious track time.

Excellent work FPZERO
