This is your chance to slip into the shoes of some of the best F1 drivers as you buckle up and take on the world’s greatest Grand Prix circuits from Canada to Brazil, across to Europe, China and even down to Australia! From the comfort of the bespoke race pod, watch your progress on the large 3 meter wide screen as you experience the same tracks as an F1 race car driver, using top quality equipment that allows you to be completely immersed in the simulation.
Take a hold of the Logitech steering wheel, which uses a force feedback system to give an amazingly authentic feeling, they are also equipped with shift paddles similar to those found on modern Formula 1 cars. Brake using the specially designed pedals which use Grand Prix strength brake springs. Watch yourself on the track using super high resolution graphics on the large screen set before you and let yourself be absorbed by the life-like visuals.
To complete the audio visual experience, you will be wearing top quality headphones so you may hear such sounds as the levels of grip, engine condition and the approach of your competition rivals!
You will start your experience with a full briefing before getting fitted into the seat of your race pod and led onto the virtual circuit. You will receive three 20 minute sessions behind the wheel which you may use as you wish, either to practice getting to grips with the track using the open practice sessions or to record your best time for the "Monthly Hot Lap competition".
The virtual pit lane remains open throughout the experience so when you are not driving you and your friends can have access to the race facilities which include a licensed bar and a big screen viewing area.
