The FPZERO Pro II simulator has been so important to my first season in the BTCC. I can jump straight onto the sim and I'm at Croft. 5 minutes later I'm back at Brands Hatch. All of which is in my accurately modelled Audi S3 BTCC car. It's also been a great opportunity for me to coach my clients on their FPZERO simulators remotely. I can see their data, 'sit' in car with them and also show them the ropes.

Visiting totally unsighted tracks to me, I was surprised how much I could take from the simulator to the track, they've done a great job and it's such a useful tool for any driver.

The support has been invaluable and having the guys at FPZERO deliver the simulator fully assembled and train me on it helped me get up to speed, and even onto Twitch (go follow me)!
