An Introduction to...Pure Racing Team

Racer Suzy Cuddihy and me , make up the Pure racing team for the MotoSL season #3. Recruited and brought together by Team manager YumYum Divesadero, we are looking forward to a fun season of motorcycle racing.

Pure is a client company of the main sponsor of MotoSL and FormulaSL , Depo. Pure is a UK outfit that works with businesses and private households helping them become more green in their energy management.

Depo is also a RL company that has literaly brought their business to the virtual world of SL. They have set up a cluster of 7 sims into a business park, where several of their RL clients have virtual offices....they use SL as a form of virtual conferencing in which they conduct their companies RL business day to day . Depo works with companies to help them maximize their online developement for the benefit of the company.

Some of the projects Depo is involved in besides sponsoring racing are , a cinema in SL for the BBC, fashion shows and developers fair, they also run a virtual art gallery and lately begun work with World Society for the Protection of Animals.

As far as MotoSL goes, it looks like its gonna be quite a season , this last saturday the 20th of October we had the final test race, 27 riders showed , and this was Les Whites time to shine as the premier Race event manager , providing a nearly lag free competition, ran with utmost proffesionalism even with so many people involved.

Pure as a team didnt quite shine as we did in the previous Test race, Suzy and i only qualified for the Group B race, racing for positions 7th to 12th , we made the most of it though , finishing 1st and 2nd , with our Depo racing team sister Doll Kabuki finishing 3rd.

The season opener is this next Saturday at PSU Raceway , and were practicing hard with hopes of a good showing ..wish us luck =)
