SimDeck has the solution to replace Montreal loosing the F1 GP

Reported in the Montreal Gazette was the depressing news for the city’s motorsports fraternity that the F1 GP will not be returning….

F1’s Ecclestone ‘ unreasonable,’ mayor decides

Montreal has lost its “trendy, worldly, sexy” image along with the Grand Prix of Canada, but the race is already on to replace the international event and the millions of tourist dollars it brought to the city.

“We made a reasonable proposal, it was rejected, and now we turn the page and try to do something else,” said Tourism Montreal president Charles Lapointe, whose organization had offered to spend $5 million per year over the next five years to keep the race in Montreal.

Arguing that Formula One CEO Bernie Ecclestone’s business plan was “unreasonable,” Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay said yesterday that negotiations he undertook last month to save the race failed.

Montreal, the provincial and federal governments and Tourism Montreal had offered Ecclestone $20 million for 2009, increasing to $24 million in 2013 – a total of $110.5 million over five years.

The city would also pay 75 per cent of the first $10 million in race profits and 25 per cent of profits above that to Ecclestone, but he turned them down, the local negotiators said.

So here is a brigft spark of an idea why don’t we set up the world’s largest virtual grand prix based on full life size actual F1 race car simulators. That sort of money will buy a massive number of our full size replica F1 race cars. The software backend has already been developed.

Every adult in the city would be able to race in our full blown car system complete with motion platform . Remember that computer gaming is the world’s largest entertainment industry and combine this with the world’s largest spectator sport and you have SimDeck Virtual Grand Prix. Imagine the uniqueness of such an event, the flood of people if would draw, and not just for a few days, …oh and the noise of 100 full size race sim cars (or more) racing at high speed not just in Montreal but on TV and and every gamers computer station around the globe.
The world’s most environmentally friendly motorsports in the world could just have been established. You might ask on a serious note…is this technically feasible… a short YES YES YES.

The advertisers would love it with all the virtual bill board advertising along with car branding.

Vacancies – Ten telesales working from home.

Well it had to happen …. since launching our full size race car simulator into the Auckland market, many people have confirmed that we are offering a unique experience that they agree, offers many commercial opportunities and totally unique experience for a wide range of functions.

So the inevitable has happened, whilst I am out racing at a wide range of events (well alot of times I am teaching others how to race or running their event) becoming the champion my parents destined I should become, restricts the time I can be on the phone to market this unique experience to the many companies who would find our virtual reality experience a great way to enhance their sales meeting, conference theme, customer focus day, staff reward event, interactive marketing activity and so on.

This is where I need your help. I know we all have connections from our associations, careers and contacts, or simply know of companies in your circle that might be really interested in what we can offer. We need ten people who are fluent on the phone with good telephone manner, organised and able to allocate as much time as you care to gain commercial clients for us. We pay you $100 for every confirmed corporate booking that becomes an actual paid booking. By using our prepared email templates, we supply you an official simdeck email address and directions and guidance you can soon start to use your idle time to increase your income. For other events we have a scale of remmuneration rates. This is a genuine offer and if it is of interest please contact me on kevin[at]simdeck[dot]com.
