Long-time TRICO-sponsored GT star, Sarah Moore is entered for the upcoming round of the BritCar Dunlop Endurance E-Series later this week on May 14th.
The Tockwith Motorsport – and W Series – racer, who was a BritCar Series champion in 2018 in her TMS-TRICOGinetta, has joined the growing band of E-Racers, to keep her driving skills honed and as an outlet for her competitive instincts.
BritCar, like many other championships, has introduced a virtual version of the real-life series, while the Covid-19 pandemic has forced the temporary closure of British Race Circuits, in order to keep itself in front of competitors and public alike.
Sarah took part in first two races, on 22nd April, in an unliveried car because of the short lead- in to the race. After some technical issues, she had to start from the back in race one, but made her way back to finish in the top 15. In the second, Sarah managed to get up to sixth from the start, but couldn’t keep up with the pace of the TCR SEATs so ended up dropping back to 11th.
Sarah has now replicated her successful TRICO livery for the online race version of her BritCar racer and she is hoping this will help bring her the same success she has enjoyed with her race car in live competition.
‘I am excited to be taking part in the BritCar Dunlop Endurance E-Series, and what makes it even better is that I can race in my 2019 TRICO-supported livery. Our 2019 livery is by far my favourite livery to date, as I love the classic look and the red is just perfect! Being a BritCar Endurance Champion, as soon as the opportunity came about to take part I had to jump at it. Sim racing is fairly new to me as I never had a simulator growing up – because I was fortunate enough to have plenty of cars and go karts to practice with at my parent’s airfield.
“Therefore I still have a fair amount to learn about sim racing, but I’m looking forward to racing against BritCardrivers both past and current. With this next race being on the Silverstone GP track layout, hopefully the cars will be a bit better balanced around there and I should be able to take it to the TCR drivers. But for now I’m just happy to be doing some form of racing in one of my favourite cars with my favourite livery! Big thanks goes to TRICO and Chicane PR for all their help and support with my racing – hopefully I can get them some results in the sim racing world.”
The races will be streamed live on BritCar’s YouTube Channel and Sarah will also be sharing the action across her social media platforms.
TRICO’s Senior Brand & Product Manager, Sam Robinson, comments: “Obviously, we would have hoped to see Sarah and the TRICO Ginetta in action in the regular season, but this is most certainly the next best thing. TRICO is delighted to be part of the BritCar season with Sarah and her Tockwith team. So, whether Silverstone is real-life or virtual, we wish her every success for 2020. I’m not sure whether she will get to sport virtual versions of the TRICO wiper blades she would normally have fitted to her car in this simulated race but, regardless, we will certainly be following her in action and I’m sure many folk at TRICO will be tuned in to see her compete.”
The BritCar Dunlop Endurance E-Series racing at Silverstone will go live on May 14th and will feature practise, qualifying and racing.
