SportPesa Racing Point
UPS Direct Ltd provide ruggedised power solutions for several F1 Teams, increasing the reliability of their IT infrastructure within the harsh pit lane environment. We have worked with SportPesa Racing Point F1Team since the days when they were called Jordan Grand Prix, and our bespoke power rack has survived twelve seasons of trucking around the world to all of the F1 races without a failure.
Compare this to last season (2007) when one team alone had thirteen standard UPS's fail in one weekend. This team (who cannot be named due to F1 secrecy) now uses specially built UPS Direct equipment and have since not had a single failure.
Adrian Collinson, Head of IT at SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team commented: “In the garage, it gets even more specialised because of the unique environment,” continues Adrian. Harsh environments are the extremes of conditions. In Bahrain, the extreme is heat and sand; in Malaysia, it’s humidity.
