Every tenth of a second counts in the Supercars Championship. Good decision making on race day is one of the key ingredients to winning the race. The challenge is the limited time and imperfect data to make those decisions. The partnership with Versor will showcase their industry leading Data Science and Artificial Intelligence capabilities enabling Walkinshaw Andretti United to make better and faster decisions on race day and providing powerful insights to improve long-term performance.
“This is a perfect partnership; an industry like Supercars with advanced engineering where gains are measured in milliseconds, a partner like Walkinshaw Andretti United who is a leading Supercars team looking for that competitive advantage using Data Analytics, and an industry leader in Data Analytics like Versor. This will be the intersection of where high performance meets data analytics and we co-create winning solutions that drive winning outcomes,” Dougall McBurnie, Founder and Managing Director says.
“We believe that the way back to the top is combining good people with hard work, imagination and leadership. As a family business, we pride ourselves in sharing the highs and lows closely with our partners when we race. That is the beauty of motor sport and that is my commitment to our team partners,” Ryan Walkinshaw, Director, Walkinshaw Andretti United says.
“It’s fantastic to be able to welcome Versor into our family, with what could be a game-changing partnership. Decisions in the garage have to be made in milliseconds, whether it’s pitting under a safety car or how much fuel to put in during the stop, so having their Data Science and Artificial Intelligence at our disposal is exciting for our entire team. I can’t wait to see what we can achieve together.”
Look out for Walkinshaw Andretti United and Versor at the 2020-2021 Supercars Series and the gains they make in this unified arrangement that could change the face of motorsports.
