MARIETTA, Georgia – October 17, 2015 – As technology enhances industry, the world of race car driving is no different. Most young drivers, as they climb the racing ladders, use racing simulation to enhance and maintain their competitive edge.
SimCraft and Jordan Taylor have announced a partnership of development collaboration to bring the next generation of simulation products to racing drivers around the world. Taylor, Chevrolet Factory Driver who also drives for Wayne Taylor Racing in the United Sports Car Series, will directly contribute to SimCraft’s research and development going forward over the next three years and beyond.
“I am very excited about this new research and development partnership with SimCraft. To help develop innovative technologies that will help other drivers is a unique opportunity.”, says Taylor, who practices on his APEX3 GTC, a 3 degree of freedom motion simulator from SimCraft.
“Track time is very limited these days, and drivers look to simulators to stay sharp, myself included. With my SimCraft, I can stay sharp between races and learn some things on the sim that I can take to the real car and the real track.”
Jordan, in his early 20s, already has an accomplished racing career. He was the 2013 Grand-Am Daytona Prototype Champion, 2014 Petit Le Mans overall winner, and 2015 Le Mans GTE-Pro winner.
“Jordan is a perfect fit for SimCraft to work alongside us as we continue to refine our motorsport simulation products. We are very excited about this working partnership particularly Jordan’s R&D contributions”, says SimCraft co-founder Sean Patrick MacDonald.
