3 March 2017: For a second year running, BRI Milton Keynes invited guests to join them at Simply Race for a fully immersive virtual motor racing experience. On the night of the event, drivers were split into nine teams of three people with all teams pitting their virtual motoring skills against one another.
While the Le Mans was in full swing, cars could be seen flying off the circuit, hitting barriers, flipping over and doing all sorts of things that they really shouldn’t.
After an hour of high octane racing, which seemed to go by in the blink of an eye, Pod 9 were crowned the winning team with Lewis Borg of EMW Law and Rob Butler of MHA MacIntyre Hudson performing particularly admirably. Recognition also goes out to the driver with the best individual lap time on the night, Jonathan Lewis of Reid & Co.
A huge thanks to all our guests for supporting BRI and making this event not just a perfect opportunity to network but also great fun. As victorious F1 team bosses are prone to say ‘good job, everyone’.
