Microsoft will present a year end grand prize of $10,000 to one of the previous winners of the Visual Studio Team to Win Award. The award is given to the team best demonstrating teamwork during each 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship race.
Visual Studio, Microsoft’s application development software, continues its involvement in motorsports after sponsoring the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series event at Road Atlanta in 2013. The “Team to Win” theme that reflects the software’s collaborative development focus has found a great analogy in the tremendous teamwork required of world-class sports car racing.
“The TUDOR United SportsCar Championship stands as one of the great showcases for teamwork,” said Matt Nunn, Director, Developer Tools Product Marketing. “The ability to harness the power of individuals to achieve a common goal is at the heart of every great on-track performance. Teams of software developers need that same ability, and a great set of tools, when collaborating on new products. Visual Studio is pleased to work with IMSA to recognize the fundamentals of teamwork that we know is key to any winning effort.”
This final set of nominees is comprised of previous Team to Win Award winners from the 2014 TUDOR United Sports Car Championship season. All eleven nominees demonstrated exceptional teamwork throughout the season in one of the world’s most challenging series.
