How are you doing this fine day, champ? Busy? Well, then, I guess you have time to drive the Aston Martin GTE! That's right, you know I always hook you up with the best opportunities.

Aston Martin's been taking it on a European exhibition tour since its stunning LM GTE win during the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans! Take it for a spin during its Brands Hatch leg of the tour!

Nice! Heh, I had an ulterior motive for that last event—and for bringing you here. I knew that Aston Martin's last tour driver had to pull out ahead of Brands Hatch. That's why I made sure we were here...

...and that you had the chance to show off for the reps—maybe WE could take their place! And, of course, your skills wowed them appropriately. We've been accepted into the invitation to replace their driver!

Quote Natalia
Hey champ! Today's your day to prove what you've got. If you can beat all of Aston Martin's challenges, you will get to drive the GTE for the rest of their tour, and you'll earn one to keep at the end of it!

Quote Eric
Alright, I'll admit it looks better than I thought it would, but how good could the Vantage GTE even be, given it only won because of the Balance of Performance rules at Le Mans 2017?!
— Eric, Auto Engineer
Quote Natalia
"Only?!" The Vantage GTE is amazing in its own right, and the Balance of Performance is only there to even out an impossible game of give and take. For crying out loud, Eric, you're an Engineer! You should know this!
— Natalia, Agent
Quote Eric
All I know is that I'm about to put it through its paces. Luckily Aston Martin brought us to Silverstone—a perfect place for me to prove that the GTE is only good because it bends the rules..

Quote Natalia
See Eric? You posed four challenges, for the four other LM GTE Pro class cars. Yes, the Balance of Performance helped even the scales, but they're there to make it more interesting, not to make it unfair.
— Natalia, Agent
Quote Eric
Yeah, I guess. Still, it seems like all this could just be down to driver ability, instead of the car's performance...
— Eric, Auto Engineer
Quote Natalia
Is that a compliment from you, Eric? You must really be rattled if you're admitting someone else has skills!

Quote Eric
Alright, I'm willing to admit that the GTE is a good car, but I stilll think the BoP is unfair. Until I see you against a comparable driver, I just can't say if it's fair or not!
— Eric, Auto Engineer
Quote Natalia
That's understandable... But whilst we look for a driver who challenge our champion, we've got a tour to continue! Let's jump back in, shall we?

The Balance of Performance evens the playing field across motorsports, and aims to prevent one manufacturer dominating over all the others, like they used to. It makes sure each race is as exciting as possible!

Phew, well, that was a tough set of challenges, but you did it. I think, for tomorrow, I'm going to settle on the Corvette C7.R. To be honest, I like the Balance of Performance...

In most motorsports, it's difficult to separate driver ability from the vehicle—you don't know if you lost to better engineering or driving. The BoP makes it a little clearer. See you tomorrow!

Eric's still going off about it, and all Zoe can do is smirk. At least she's got a level head. We're all keen to see what happens today, champ. This is the decider—is the BoP fair, or not?
