Wicks also spent some time with Team Principal, David Richards, and Group Managing Director, Nick Fry, regarding the adoption of Formula 1 technology into the American Challenge project.  "As the pinnacle of motorsports, the technology in Formula 1 is constantly evolving," Wicks said.  "The B.A.R team provides a perfect example of how to maximize the engineering process while utilizing the latest technology."

American Challenge is comprised of a consortium of successful business leaders, innovative technical engineers, and motorsport professionals.  They are focused on returning the outright world water speed record - which currently stands to Australian Ken Warby at 317.596 mph - to the United States.
