Over the course of the three days of simulator training, Andy was on hand to help the young drivers with assistance regarding strategic and tactical race preparations.

“As well as the practical training the participants in the 2013 Formula BMW Talent Cup receive at the on-track events at various circuits throughout Europe, the simulator training is an important component of the tutorship,” said Priaulx.

The aspiring race car drivers still have just under four weeks to prepare for the second on-track event on the season, that takes place in Anderstorp from June 7-9. Their training includes fitness, performance and media modules that should teach them how to approach such an event.

The 2013 Formula BMW Talent Cup season will end in September, in Oschersleben, as part of the DTM weekend. The winner of the 3 races that are to be held over there will be financed by BMW for the 2014 season in a higher-level racing series.
