With the cancellation of the Atlantic Championship season, many of its teams were left with their cars and equipment, and not much else. Team Stargate Worlds / US RaceTronics is putting its mothballed Swift 016.a racecars to work by launching "The Arrive and Drive Experience."
The program, which does not require a racing license, features self-paced testing, which utilizes an advanced Pi Sigma data acquisition system with TSGW/USRT instructors on hand to evaluate and help the client's performance. Clients will drive a race-prepared Formula Atlantic Swift 016.a. at a professional racing level.
"When the Atlantic Series decided to cancel the season, it left us in a bit of a bind for our junior program," said Seneviratne. "We decided to develop a program that could create some new value for our existing/potential sponsors and give our racing fans a unique opportunity. There are a lot of driving experiences that exist in the marketplace, but none of them are able to simulate a true experience of an untamed modern racecar."
Added Safiulla, "With the availability of our Atlantic cars and our growing commercial platform with our IndyCar program, now is the perfect time to launch this exciting new initiative."
The team will tailor its driving experience to each client's needs, whether it's be to prepare for a racing career or just as an experience. No prior racing experience is necessary. All safety equipment, including a HANS device, will be provided during the session. All sessions will take place at Buttonwillow Raceway in Buttonwillow, Calif. This circuit is used by professional race teams throughout the country for driver and chassis development testing.
