Mono Corporate Experience Day - Silverstone
Earlier this month BAC headed to Silverstone for a special Mono Corporate Experience Day with Leitz, one of the world’s foremost producers of stationery and office equipment.
The weather gods were smiling as the Northamptonshire circuit bathed in late summer sunshine. Flown over from Germany, twelve excited Leitz employees prepared for an unforgettable drive in Mono.
Following a safety briefing the drivers were given expert tuition by Blancplain Aston Martin racer Stuart Hall and former BTCC Audi works driver John Bintcliffe. They got to grips with the layout riding shotgun in a Porsche Boxster race car before swapping places and getting behind the wheel.
Having been briefed by BAC on Mono’s interface and characteristics the participants dawned there Mono liveried helmets before enveloping themselves in Mono’s carbon fibre seat and firing up the Cosworth engine. Shadowing the tutors, they steadily built up speed and confidence in the supercar, completing many laps each over several stints.
“We would like to say a big thank you to BAC for the organisation and professional realisation of this great event. Being at Silverstone on an open track day and getting driving lessons from professionals was already very exciting, but to then have the opportunity to drive Mono on the racetrack was truly an experience of a life time.”, Jens Kappelt, Esselte Leitz GmbH & Co KG.
