Founded by former F1 driver Aguri Suzuki, Super Aguri was an unofficial Honda 'B-team' and, although officially headquartered in Tokyo, its actual base of operations was the former Arrows factory at the Leafield Technical Centre in Oxfordshire. The team began with an all-Japanese driver line-up. Future Indy 500 winner Takuma Sato was the lead driver, with Yuji Ide in the second car. Sato remained with the team in 2007 and was joined by British driver Anthony Davidson. Sato finished in the top ten on two occasions in Spain and Canada and the team ended the year ahead of Spyker in the Constructors Championship. Sadly, Super Aguri never got to build on their sophomore season as mounting financial problems meant that the team pulled out of Formula 1 after four races in 2008.
Offered here is a Formula One simulator that utilises an original Super Aguri 2006 Formula One car which still carries FIA stickers on the bodywork and on some parts. It comes complete with all the latest F1 2019 software, monitor and its own dedicated 2013 Brian James enclosed transporter. The car utilises a replacement wider tub to facilitate drivers who are not F1 size and the steering and pedals can be adjusted electrically to suit any age or height.
The software is a 55’’ monitor with an up to date F1 laptop running the latest F1 programmes with lots of different circuits available. With life-like vibrational feedback through the steering and pedals and a sound system delivering the soundtrack through the air intakes, this is a remarkable experience.
The car and associated kit are transported in a bespoke 2013 Brian James Sprint Shuttle double-axle trailer, 14.1 feet long and 6.2 feet wide which has just had four new tyres fitted and was recently serviced.
This is a commercial proposition suitable for weddings, events and private parties or could simply be an addition to a very special ‘man-cave’ for post-dinner party fun. We understand that two events for 2020 are already booked as is a pitch at the British Grand Prix (campsite). A very interesting lot with plenty of possibilities commercially or the chance to own a Formula 1 car with a dedicated trailer. www1st-Place-events.co.uk
