Base Performance Simulators was announced as the winner of the Business of the Year award (with a turnover of under £5m), at the annual Motorsport Industry Association’s (MIA) Business Excellence Awards on 14 January 2016.

The sell-out event, which took place at the Birmingham NEC as part of the world-renowned Autosport International show, saw more than 500 guests from across the globe come together to recognise the achievements of the motorsport industry over the past 12 months.

The Motorsport Industry Association (MIA) is the world’s leading trade association for the motorsport, high performance engineering, and services sectors. It represents the specialised needs of a highly successful industry which, although extending throughout the world and rapidly expanding in the developing nations, is centred here in the UK.

Company founder Darren Turner said: “I was very proud to accept this award. It is a true reflection of the work that Ella Barrington and the whole team at BPS has put in during the last 12 months. 2015 was a record-breaking year in every aspect of the business and it is a source of immense pride for all of us that our efforts have been recognised by others in our industry. ”

MIA CEO, Chris Aylett said: “It is a real privilege to be part of an industry which represents so many world-class organisations and individuals. This year’s winners and finalists have yet again impressed the judges with their innovation and performance. The quality of the entries was incredibly high and we’d like to congratulate the entire motorsport supply chain for the continued passion, drive and commitment to excellence which ensures global renown.”

First presented in 1995, the MIA Business Excellence Awards recognise excellence at all levels within the motorsport and high performance engineering industry.
