Daytona Beach, FL (PRWEB) April 06, 2015
Microsoft has presented its first installment of the 2015 Visual Studio Team to Win Award to PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports, following the team’s class victory in the Rolex 24 At Daytona. The award is given to the team best demonstrating teamwork during each 2015 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship race. PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports was one of four teams nominated for the award, and was declared the winner by the fan voting component of the contest.
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 and hosting the inaugural season of the Team to Win Award in 2014. 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. After a successful debut in 2014, which saw 11 different winners claiming prize money, IMSA and Microsoft are excited to offer the award once again in 2015.
Visual Studio has also partnered with IMSA in the development of the new IMSA mobile application that is expected to be launched later this Spring. The partnership and details about the new mobile platform are available at https://teamtowininsights.com/get-the-business-story/.
Microsoft’s involvement includes a cash prize to be awarded to the leading vote getters following each event. The second set of nominees, chosen from the 12 Hours of Sebring at Sebring International Raceway, demonstrated exceptional teamwork on one of North America’s most famous circuits.
The nominees are:
1) Action Express Racing
2) Scuderia Corsa
3) Team Seattle – The Heart of Racing
4) Performance Tech Motorsports
Fans can vote through 12:00 p.m. EDT Friday, April 17, 2015, at http://bit.ly/1GagCvZ. The winner will be announced at the Tequila Patron Sports Car Showcase at Long Beach in Long Beach, California. Details on the award and on each selected team can also be found at the website.
