Ainslie's team will be working with Red Bull as it progresses with its campaign for the 35th America's cup

Ben Ainslie Racing (BAR) has announced that it will be working with Red Bull Advanced Technologies (RBAT), a division of the Red Bull Formula One group, as it progresses with its campaign to claim the 35th America’s Cup.

Operating as a design house, RBAT is based in Milton Keynes.

Founded on the group’s impressive F1 DNA, which has resulted in eight Formula One World Championships in the last five seasons, RBAT excels in advanced simulation and mathematical modelling.

BAR is collaborating with RBAT to draw on this expertise and knowledge.

RBAT will apply its simulation and modelling skills to assist Ben Ainslie Racing in various areas of their campaign, as BAR aims to bring the America’s Cup home to Britain.

Sir Ben Ainslie said: “BAR are really excited to be partnering with Red Bull Advanced Technologies.

“We are in a unique position in this country, and this campaign is about assimilating the very best of British in design and engineering – RBAT epitomises this.”
