North Shore Racing to the Finish Line in the F1 Hot Seat

Racing to the finish line, the crowds hung on as the suspense built, eager to see who could pull away from the starting grid and take the lead. Which of the finalists in the Westpac Enterprise North Shore Business Excellence Awards would be a winner.

On the 6 August more than 300 North Shore business people gathered together at a function at North Harbour Stadium to congratulate the 36 finalists for the Awards. They found themselves not only in the business hot seat, but literally in the hot seat of a Formula 1 race car simulator with their egos on the line. The eventual winner whom finally emerged at the end of a high speed evening was Aaron Tudor from Rad9 Computer Services. He was able to display a steady hand at following the optimum drive line, knowing when to brake and accelerate that eventually saw him blitz the other rookie drivers to take the coveted “Fastest Finalist.

The evening recognised the Awards’ 17 North Shore-based sponsors, that will shortly lead into the Gala Dinner on 28 August when the Awards winners for the Westpac Enterprise North Shore Business Excellence Awards will be announced.

Terry Hoskins, chief executive of primary co-sponsor, Enterprise North Shore commented “The evening’s success shows the abundance of committed optimism in the North Shore business community, at a time when it is needed most,” says “The interest shown by businesses at the Finalist Function and in the Awards overall shows the dedication and commitment of North Shore enterprises towards the economic success of the City,” he says.

Westpac general manager of business banking, Ian Blair stated, “We look forward to unveiling the overall winners at the Gala Dinner and showing Westpac’s continued support for the North Shore community.”

“Westpac is delighted to be a primary sponsor of the North Shore business awards which is the ultimate recognition of local business greatness,” says In its 12 year history of the Westpac Enterprise North Shore Business Excellence Awards, 2009 is the most successful with a record breaking 158 entrants taking up the challenge to demonstrate their business success.

Simdeck Formula Simulators sister activity ICE AV Technology Ltd has previously entered the Westpac Enterprise North Shore Business Excellence Awards.

A Guy’s Day Out where he can feed his ego.

Our Guy’s Day Out is an event for you to get a bunch of your mates together for some new age social bonding at the race track in our virtual world.

EVERY GUY THINKS HE IS A GOOD DRIVER, THAT HE CAN EASILY OUT DRIVE HIS MATE. WELL, WE ARE GOING TO LAY DOWN A CHALLENGE TO THE GROUP THAT WILL SEE ONE DRIVER WIN $50 CASH. FROM MY POCKET TO YOURS. YOU’VE GOT NOTHING TO LOOSE EXCEPT YOUR EGO, BUT I COULD BE OUT OF $50 ! Read further down for details.

Ring around and get a group of friends, neigbours, club players, sports team folk together for an afternoon or evening of some fun racing together. We know that Kiwi guys are passionate about two things, motorsports and running the BBQ and so SimDeck gets you into Top Gear with this fun package that combine these two elements.

You provide the drinks, BBQ food and up to 12 enthusiastic drivers. We provide the venue, actual race car all set up and BBQ facilities. If you need Pit Girls to help you with your event we can supply some attractive and charming ladies at an additional cost. If required we have a 6m x 3m marque available.

Booking details
3 Hours duration. Extended time can be booked.
Each driver has approx 15 min spread thru the booking time
Prize for fastest driver who is able to beat me on Spa Franchorchamp. I’ll give $50 cash if the fastest driver amongst the group throughout the evening is able to beat my time.
We recommend no more than 12 drivers in a 3 hour event.
With less drivers drive time will be increased for each driver.
Cost $600 for the group up to 12 guys (or gals) for three hours.
If you have less drivers say around 6 drivers we can offer this programme for 2 hours at $500. Bonus challenge prize does not apply for 2 hour events.

This programme is suited for weekends only.

Between operating the BBQ, catching up with your mates over a drink, trying to impress them with your driving prowess, planning your excuses for such poor driving skills, observing the other drivers, you will spend a number of times on the track as you progress through circuit familarisation, qualifying and actual race laps.

Your chance to celebrate being a Kiwi Champion at our Waitangi Weekend Celebrations.

With speeds of over 300kph, split second timing, accurate driving lines and serious concentration we expect to see some nervous drivers taking the controls.

Recent visitors have been espousing how life like the experience is which is what we are aiming to achieve and to take the realism way beyond what people can re-create at home.

We are looking forward to a steady stream of drivers all day.

Our Pit Manager reckons we need to have a BBQ susage sizzle going throughout the day so that will also be available so you can have a drink and bite whilst you wait to impress the crowds.

After appearing on national radio with Danny Watson on Radio 2ZB’s “Tech Tuesdays” programme this week talking about this uniquely kiwi experience, we have been told we could cause a traffic jam out on the street. Now that is kinda cool a virtual car race creating a real world traffic jam. Of course this fits right into our motto. “SimDeck creating the reality in virtual reality”.

So if you come along please wait your turn with a smile and everyone will get the chance to race…even if we need to run the Open Day again on another weekend.

THE EASIEST WAY TO FIND WHAT YOU NEED IN NZ

Social media, the online world of social networks for business.

Some would call me a geeky nerd, well I am too handsome for that, however it is no denying I have alot of things in common with that category, moreso though I have had this life long involvement in communicating and networking in one form or another.

It started first by corresponding with a son of two doctors who lived in Romania in the early 1960’s, from there I learnt how to make chemicals to process film and paper to make photos, I progressed to video as soon as the Government took off the license restrictions. Today more than ever before communication in the business world on a global scale has changed the landscape for ever and is pretty much the core to what I do.

Would your company like a free blog like this blog here at SimDeck. I don’t mean the design but the concept, where you can communicate daily with your customers and visitors, where they can talk with you, where you can share with others. Bring your brand alive in the world of social online media.

If you book a SimDeck Simulator for your next commercial event, I’ll personally spend one hour with you compilmentary, showing you how you can get up and running within an hour for virtually zero cost with your own company blog.

For many though this social networking, Face Book, Blogging and a zillion other avenues must seem daunting to the new comer. Simulation racing and gaming is one industry where we have been online and very active as a community, we don’t just talk and race, but a huge amount of the networking is around problem solving, computer programmes, networked racing – imagine a global talk fest all talking at once,,,well we have the similar where it is talking and racing!, the various online communities all have their heros, champions, contributors, hosts. For example, if we had to rely on walking to a retail shop to get our software and that was the sum of the community interaction, then the simulation industry would be nothing ressembling what it is today.

From a business perspective, simulation & gaming is probably further down the track in this respect than many other industries, nevertheless we still face many core business growth, brand, customer experience, communication issues just like you.

I thought these two very valuable links might help your company to enter the world of Online Business Social Networking.

The first is from Valeria Maltoni from the Conversation Agent, and is a brilliant piece for those who want to start blogging and not sure where to start. Her comment sums it up nicely, ….”For businesses especially, people have come to expect that you have a Web presence. But, when they research you or your type of business, they prefer to read what others are saying about you, or they want to see you in action – read how you solve problems, what kind of expertise you have, etc.

Start a business blog today, as they will become the next must have communication tool for companies.

The second is a free 32 page FREE ebook on Marketing in 2009, instigated by Valeria Maltoni featuring the contributions of 12 professional experienced online marketers and courtesy at the web site of the lovely Amber Naslund. Well worth reading whatever business you are in., actually let me rephrase… If you are in business you had better make this a must read.

Formula 1’s virtual reality

The decision to ban all circuit testing in the Formula 1 season was designed to save the teams money. For the big teams, however, the battle has simply moved from the race tracks to the factories where advanced simulation technology will take over from actual running.

A real car that is at home on the track as it is in a virtual world

A real car that is at home on the track as it is in a virtual world


Teams these days are using an array of different tools to make the cars go faster. These include highly-advanced rolling-road wind tunnels, transient dynos and seven-post rigs. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is developing fast. The goal of all of these expensive items is to ensure that the racing cars are as competitive as possible – and as reliable. But simulation techniques in Formula 1 are now beginning to go far beyond that. Computers crunch away to work out every conceivable race strategy and increasingly the teams are realising the value of what are known as “driver-in-the-loop simulators”. This means that rather than engineers playing with computers, as happens with other simulation, the F1 drivers sit in “virtual” F1 cars and drive them….read the rest of the article by clicking here.
