Virtual World crashes can be just as dramatic ending in the same result, carnage over the track, drivers dismissed from teams and oh so spectacular dismantling of machinery with sheer force, gravity and impact…tools your local mechanic might use if your not watching when he hits than stubborn bolt. No offence meant for our splendid mechanics and pit crews.

One of the aspects we observe when novice drivers take a simulator race car around the track is their inability to judge the rapid use of brakes, gears and acceleration, especially when they enter corners, chicanes etc. Though after about 10 minutes the confidence to travel 250kph + and to negotiate the corners and establishing drive lines begins to improve.

Driving an open cockpit car such as the Formula 1, A1GP, Indy 500 cars are akin to driving a rocket, plane, car all packaged in one package. For most though the visual rush of driving through a virtual or real world circuit at high speed is far removed from driving to their local super market. It is partly this adrenalin rush that excites many drivers in a SimDeck simulator. The relief a driver experiences after a virtual crash in a full size virtual world is often seen and heard as they realise their cockiness and over confidence has bought spells of laughter from the atching audience.

The great fear of course is that they will crash, however with circuit familiarity and driving skills and split second musicle memory skills, the ability to negotiate the circuit without crashing is greatly improved…until other cars appear of the circuit!

For those who have been affected by a car crash death, accident or injury this is not meant to belittle the impact. As one who has personally seen this we know that simulators have a very real world benefit in both racing and learning to drive. Many times it is driver judgement and level of driving ability that creates the carnage on our roads.

SimDeck to attempt speed record racing at the NZ Colour Fest

Plenty of activities for everyone.

Plenty of activities for everyone.

This unique and innovative outdoor art festival promotes quality art and artists, awarding excellence by way of reward in the field of art innovation and creativity. Its is a fun family day that children can enjoy.

The audience and participants will be entertained and interests held through the many stalls, including trade stands. The day will be filled with colour and live demonstrations with product suppliers, clowns, stilt walkers, graffiti art, slide shows and sideshow entertainment. With the international motorsports season having recently started with A1GP, Formula One is to start in March and the Indy series kicking off, plus the Euro Formula 3, SimDeck Formula Simulators will be there to add some high speed Formula 1 colour and action as one of the official supporters and promoters on the NZ Body Art Awards and related activities.

Lap Time Race Demonstration on the Kyalami Circuit.

Pro Sim Driver, Kevin Andreassend will also give demonstrations throughout the day, of racing on the South African Kyalami circuit where the latest A1GP event was held this pass weekend. Kevin will endeavour to match some of the fastest lap times set the previous weekend.
Final Race fastest lap: Monaco of 1.m 27.269s.
Fastest on Final Practice Day – Lebanon’s Daniel Morad recorded 1m 30.816s
Frances Nicolas Prost ended the rookie session quickest with a time of 1m 33.149s
Kiwi’s Earl Bamber Final race fastest lap was 01m:27.569s
To maintain some level of respectability Kevin needs to at least match America’s time of 01m:35.130s
Nigel Mansells (Formula One) fastest lap set in 1993 was 1m:36.39s.

Food and drinks will be available along with live music and creative dance & entertainment shows throughout the day.

This exceptional event has been initiated by The NZ Body Art Awards Team to foster, promote and extend the development of new art-forms throughout Auckland and New Zealand. We aim to inspire artists to look beyond the art that exists, to push their boundaries and create new concepts.

We acknowledge the high calibre of artists, models and tutors in the Auckland region that will enabled this festival to be an outstanding success. We compliment the artists as the thrill and buzz of these creations are the result of many hours of preparation, including timing, sculpting and designing the finished work.

The one-day interactive festival of colour is prelude to the international quality NZ Body Art Awards that has become the premier Body Art feature on the NZ calendar held in July 2009.

Get into top gear with SimDeck.

SimDeck gets into top gear with the latest promotion that is aimed at all ages. Boy racers may have their cars crushed for racing on the streets, Greg Murphy will drive at a wall in high speed, holiday cars race north and create a bottle neck at the Pohoi tunnel. SimDeck offers the Top Gear test circuit in the open wheeler simulator for Top Gear the TV Theatre Show at the Auckland leg of the world tour.

The new monthly SimDeck promotion each month is designed to bring all the above elements together to test a driver’s quick adaptation to a very fast vehicle, an unfamilar circuit and rapid responsive action. It will require accurate acceleration, braking, maintaining the perfect drive line, stepping through the gears in a rapid motion with accurate timing.

Each driver will be given five minutes to race. In this time they will need to establish familiarity with the circuit and to establish one lap as their fastest that will be recorded. Before they visit the SimDeck Formula facility drivers can download the simulation software for free and drive the formula car and circuit to get in some off line practice prior to booking your race slot. Just follow the download instructions.
