    It's always good to see these race teams using a suite of products that I have been following for years.
    I have to wonder though; Are any of them using the Teamcenter Visualization Tools and are any of them using VisVSA for Tolerance Analysis? What about 3D annotation? It would be good to read more about more of the details since Teamcenter software solutions are so vast.

    I appreciate the mention of the many other race teams that are using Siemens PLM Softwate and what products they use. However the Siemens PLM Soltware Solid Edge and the Velocity Series products were not mentioned at all, though I believe these products are being used by many teams in the sport.
