Tomas Enge, Czech racing driver and team coordinator at Reiter Engineering is overseeing the programme - called Reiter Young Stars - where drivers and engineers rising in their careers are able to benefit from the support such a renowned and established team and driver can offer. Tomas has raced in Formula One and competed at Le Mans several times.
He has a glowing record of wins and podium finishes, and inspiringly also started with his own money when he was just 16 years old in the Czechoslovakian Ford Fiesta Cup, before seizing the opportunity with a big sponsor in Despite being well known for running Lamborghinis, the German race car team that I am working with this season also owns Hollinger, which builds the sequential gearboxes for Porsche Cup cars, and builds cars for customers all over the world from KTMs to Camaros.
Hans Reiter, company owner and engineer, along with everyone working for him, seem to exude passion for the sport as well as it being a business.
They have truly made me feel very welcome at every visit so far. Combined with success in many forms of high profile racing all over the world, I feel in very confident hands this season. The icing on the cake is that the best female and the best male driver this season in the KTM will win a fully paid-for seat in Blancpain next year.
Dubai beckons Project Le Mans comes to a head inmarking the final stage of my four-year plan.
There has been a lot of hard work behind the scenes as well as obstacles to overcome, and each year has been a step up in three vital areas: In terms of driver development, the main progress has been from racing a Porsche Cup car this season, along with simulator work and physical strength and stamina training with Strakka Racing and Stew Wild. Media exposure from The TelegraphEasyJet in-flight magazine, plus radio and TV interviews have been amongst the plethora of activities to showcase Project Le Mans, which is such an essential element to the success of the project.
The most notable race of the season was our second visit to Brands Hatch GP circuit. The Kent-based track is incredibly quick and really lends itself to our ex-Carrera Cup It is difficult to beat the feeling of a great race, and returning from Parc Ferme with a big grin on my face told everyone else how much I had enjoyed it too.
None of this would have been possible without MAS Commercials, who own the car, letting me drive it, and for that I will always be grateful.

As for Le Mans, I have been told by other racers that if you can master a Cup car devoid of traction control and ABS, you can drive almost anything.
LMP1 might be out of the question, but certainly the GT race car doors are firmly open. Rebecca will race a BMW Mi in Dubai A safe-yet-competitive pair of hands is a good way to secure more drives as well, which leads on to the next part of Project Le Mans.
In January I will be taking part in the high-profile Dubai 24hr endurance race in a BMW Miboasting bhp and Le Mans-style paddle shifts for its eight-speed gearbox. It is a logical step up yet again, putting me into a hour race as part of a five-driver line-up in a touring car-spec racing BMW. With all this going on, the Christmas new year party celebrations have taken a back seat as physical training and sim work ramp up once again.
I have also upgraded my race licence to an international one, having now completed enough eligible races to do so. Most racing drivers curse the winter, but for me this year is different because racing in Dubai looks set to be one of the several highlights of Project Le Mans.
November - the race is on to secure a competitive car The Le Mans 24 Hours is arguably the most prestigious endurance race in the world — and for that reason it is not the easiest event to enter.

It is then up to the teams to pick their driver line-ups. At the beginning ofI made it my mission to get to the grid of this iconic event by Each year has been a step up in terms of racing, driver development, budget and media profile.
It has been challenging to really get to grips with this out-and-out racing car, with its rear-mounted, bhp engine and sequential gearbox, and crucially no driver aids. That is not to say the car I might drive at Le Mans will be devoid of anti-lock brakes and traction control, but it is beneficial to skills and confidence to be able to master the raw Porsche.
However, after a few races my pace has improved dramatically, even outqualifying my more experienced team-mate on occasions. When I consider the bigger picture, such performances in a without driver aids can only open more doors. We even managed to pick up some silverware at Oulton Park, the final round, and finished sixth out of 14 cars overall in the season standings.
As I mentioned earlier, it is not just about the racing. So are we on target with media exposure and the essential budget to make it all happen? Employing a public relations manager has worked well for Project Le Mans over the past year, with plenty of coverage in high-profile magazines and websites helping to promote the campaign and keep current and potential sponsors happy.
This is business, after all. That is why we agree a number of days of my time for presenting videos and hosting events to complement the advertising on the car.
September - am I still on target? The Le Mans 24 Hours is arguably the most prestigious endurance race in the world, and by the very nature of that is not the easiest event to enter.

That is not to say the car I might drive at Le Mans will be devoid of ABS and traction control, but it is a good skill to master nonetheless. On the downside it does mean ourrun by Quinntech Racing and co-driven with Kent-based Mike Sellar, is not as competitive as others on the grid. However, after a few races my pace has improved dramatically.
At the last outing at Brands Hatch GP circuit, we were the second quickest Porsche and for the first time this season, my team-mate, who has three seasons in this car under his belt, could not match my race pace in the dry. I had a fantastic battle for the entire race with two other s and a quick Ginetta. Although I love racing within the Porsche marque, we are not excluding other cars from our Le Mans ambition. Options include Ferrari, Jaguar and Ford. Every racer tries to nail their drive before Christmas so it is now that we are looking at potential brands to work with and cars to drive.
I don't want to put an expiration date on human relationships, so it makes sense to not put those time parameters on a game. They blush when they are bashful.
They smile and giggle when they are pleased. They emit little noises of pleasure when they are touched and kissed by tapping the screen with a stylus. They slap and pout when they are angry.
They're able to read the player. It's not about the words anymore; It's about the underlying, subconscious actions. Instead, he has enjoyed getting to know her as a friend first. InThe New York Times profiled a year-old Japanese man who squired a body pillow bearing the likeness of a young anime character around town, referring to her as his "girlfriend.
There are dozens of these stories bouncing about the web. LovePlus earned its own moment in the sun when, less than six months after the game was released, a player calling himself "Sal " married his virtual girlfriendclad in a white tux as friends looked on and thousands watched via a livestream.
I understand very well that I cannot marry her physically or legally. American gamers can become equally emotionally — if not necessarily romantically — attached to their favorite avatars. There's something that will appeal to almost everyone, and people grow obsessed with these characters. People joke about it, like, 'So-and-so is my husbando.
Human personalities and characteristics are readily projected onto pets and religious iconography and cartoon characters, so why not an avatar? Not only is it not so uncommon to feel real emotions for a video game character, it may actually be a good thing.
I see games like LovePlus as something that could help. Such a game could teach children to listen to others with empathy and compassion, for instance. For instance, a young Michigan woman with Asperger's syndrome has used LovePlus as a form of no-pressure social conditioning. Her relationship with LovePlus's Manaka has spanned three years, longer than any of her romantic relationships with men. However, Konami has denied that the game was designed as any sort of training tool. A still of Rinko in LovePlus.STRIP CLUB SHOW - Date Ariane #6 (Dating Simulator)

Some even consider LovePlus as the first step toward a future filled with romantic man-machine interactions. Jincey Lumpkin, who in gave a TEDx talk on the possibility of humans having sexual relationships with sentient robots, compares the LovePlus girls to Her's Samantha.
At the end of the film, she points out, Samantha terminates the relationship.
