That’s incredible!” is how Ross Loram began his email reply when he was told he had been selected at random from the 333 Autosport competition entries as the winner of a two camera Video VBOX Lite. Having worked on a shoestring budget to race in the Quaife Intermarque League, Ross was ecstatic that he will now be able to improve both driver and vehicle performance with his new Video VBOX.

1st Prize - Video VBOX Lite with Two Cameras
Racing a converted Peugeot 206 in the Quaife Intermarque League, Ross Loram has worked alongside his father on a shoestring budget to adapt the car originally built for the for short oval racing into a full on circuit racer. He was ecstatic to now be able to analyse and improve both driver and vehicle performance with his new two camera Video VBOX.
Giving us an insight into his racing history, Torquay based Ross said: “We raced the last two meetings of 2010 and did a full season in 2011, learning along the way! It’s quite a big culture shock racing on circuits like Snetterton and Rockingham when you’re used to short ovals like Bristol!”
2nd Prize - PerformanceBox GPS data logger and Predictive Lap Timer
David Vardy has had a passion for motorsport ever since he picked up his first spanner. As founder of the Apprentice Motorsport Team (AMT), an organisation dedicated to giving young people the opportunity to gain real experience in team racing, and now Product Manager for the VW Group, David was elated to be announced as the winner of a PerformanceBox.

3rd Prize - Racelogic Winter Jacket
As part of Saxon Motorsport – the team who raced a 3.5l twin turbo BMW 1 series in the 2011 BritCar at Silverstone and 4hr VLN at the Nurburgring, Dave Price looks forward to using his Racelogic Jacket to keep him warm in the paddock.
Three happy competition winners was just the icing on the cake for what turned out to be Racelogic’s busiest ever show.
Offering customers a hands on guide to all our systems designed for driver analysis and vehicle development, and assisting existing customers with a special Service Area, our stand was jam packed throughout the four day event with many people interested in learning how they could use our devices to cut seconds from their lap times.
Racelogic were also involved with one of the most popular attractions at Autosport: the Caterham Experience. Several thousand show goers sampled a Caterham Seven at full throttle beside a pro driver around their custom built indoor drift course. Each car was fitted with Video VBOX systems so that passengers could relive the experience in what many consider to be the ultimate race car for the road.
“We’ve been exhibiting the Video VBOX at the Autosport show since 2008 but this year was our best ever,” said managing director Julian Thomas. “Our Video VBOX and predictive lap timing systems sold so quickly that we had to get more shipped to the NEC at the weekend.”
“Racing drivers love an edge and our products give them an advantage not only in finding raw pace, but also in maintaining consistency. As more drivers hear about the benefits of Video GPS and predictive lap timing, I can see next year’s show being even busier.”
