27 February, 2012

Compumod is thrilled to announce our sponsorship of the Ford Performance Racing V8 Supercars team.

Ford Performance Racing (FPR) has selected MSC Software's Multi Body Dynamics analysis system, MSC Adams and MSC Adams/Car to aid the design process and gain competitive advantage over the rest of the field in 2012 and beyond.

Compumod has worked with FPR to provide training and support to race engineers with the goal of squeezing every last ounce of performance out of the already field leading FPR race vehicles. Of the sponsorship, Warwick Marx, Managing Director of Compumod said, 'We are very excited about our partnership with Ford Performance Racing. To be associated with such a professional and successful outfit aligns perfectly with Compumod's goals and ethos and we hope many of our customers will get behind FPR in the upcoming race season.'

FPR secured victory in the final race of the 2011 V8 Supercars season at Homebush and they will be looking to keep that winning form going in 2012, backed by the leading motion and kinematics simulation software in the world, MSC Adams.

Will Davison’s #6 Tradingpost FPR FordFPR Director of Business Operations Mark Roworth, said, 'With the margins between winning and losing a race increasingly narrowing every V8 Supercars team is looking for any advantage they can get. For us MSC Adams will provide that advantage, allowing us to virtually test design changes well before the build process begins.'

As part of Compumod's involvement with the FPR team we will be hosting events at race meets and at the FPR facilities in Melbourne so keep an eye out for announcements.
