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.

Relive the experience that saw Scott Dixon win the prestigous Murray Halberg Sportsman of the Year Award on Tuesday night for his amazing achievements at winning the 2008 Indy Car Series Championship – Amercia’s greatest racing spectacle. Come and experience high speed adrenalin rush in the life size and life like virtual SimDeck world.

SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR DADS – Here is something fun you can do with your son for FREE THIS WEEKEND.

We are looking forward for all boy racers, mums with a burning ambition to lay some rubber, youngsters who one day dream of owning their own race car, and adults reliving some lost dreams to step up to the challenge and try a few laps on a virtual race circuit in a Formula race car. 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.

The Open Day is completely free to visit and run a few laps through out the day. A voluntary gold goin donation can be made that will be given to http://www.kidscan.org.nz. This will be a prelude to being part of and supporting the KidsCan television Big Night In telethon coming to your TV screen later in the year.

We want people to experience something very unique that previously has not been readily available in NZ. The enormous 2.5m wide virtual reality screen puts you into a full life size virtual world where you feel every bump of the road and shudder of the engine.

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.
Just to add some edge and reputation at stake elements the fastest certified driver will win a 1 hour session for 4 people.

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.
