Kixo are incredibly proud to sponsor/partner with the Midlands based TolmanMotorsport – A BritishGT racing team. Computers and IT isn’t always the most exciting of subjects (unless your geeks like us)  Racing about in sports cars in way more interesting, we are lucky that we have very interesting clients!

A few months ago we partnered and agreed to provide services and support to the Team. Its Tolman’s first year in the prestigious GT series but the team have a long racing pedigree including WorldRally and Touring cars.

We joined the team mid season so we have been thrown in at the deep end. Since partnering the team has been clocking up points at Snetterton and Spa in Belgium, and last weekend clocked a 1st place at Brandshatch! There a only 2 more races this season and Tolman have been doing amazingly!

Drivers Luke Davenport and David Patterson along with the entire team have been simply storming it! We travelled all the way with them to Spa in Belgium to what has to be the one of the most historical and famous F1 tracks in the world, we wanted to be able to provide them with network, data, and communications unparalleled in the GT series.

Everyone knows F1 is famous for being cutting edge but F1 seems to have lost its spark to the fans, so a lot of people have been looking to BritishGT for the high action and fun it offers. The league has been gaining traction for a long time now and Kixo believe we can help the team progress, and yes we hope to have some fun along the way!

Data is one of the big things for teams now, from logging historical to logging live, and having it all on tap, Big Data is something Kixo can do for Tolman in the British GT series.

We wont be talking to much about what we are doing as its all race secrets but the demand for high uptime, always available, critical data to make race decisions is something we are proud to be working on!

So if you wondered why a IT company had been tweeting about motorsport, now you know why! You can catch the guys winning at BrandsHatch here on Channel4’s catchup service here!
