Simdeck PET250 simulator race car brings Scott Dixon’s winning Indy 500 car alive.

SimDeck brings the Scott Dixon car alive. The SimDeck PET250 simulator recreated the virtual version of the Scott Dixon car and bought it to life on the Orchard Lake circuit. The simulator created a real buzz amongst those who took on the mantle of Scott Dixon in the virtual world as they endeavoured to maintain control and high speed. However Scott has nothing to worry about if he thought that his driver seat position in the Chip Gannasi Race Team was under challenge. The guests for the evening hosted by Honda were from Logistics company Jenner who had the priviledge of being entrusted with Scott's car to bring it from the USA and its return in a few days time.

In once in a life time opportunity the SimDeck PET250 open wheeler race car simulator is to be displayed in conjunction with the Honda powered Scott Dixon Indy 500 winning car. The Indy car was especially brought to NZ for the Auckland Speed Show and post show corporate promotions at the Newmarket Honda Dealership.

The cars will be on display for approximately 7 days, where the public can come to view the sleek form of the Indy car and then experience the May 2008 Indy 500 race in the Simdeck simulator driving a virtual version of Scott’s sim car. On Wedenesday and Thursday evening a two corporate functions will see numerous attempts as drivers endeavour to at least match Scott’s fastest lap time in the May race of:
Last lap 42.02.82
Best lap 40.47.19
Last lap speed – 214.14 mph

Steady boys!

Steady boys!


The chance to display alongside the Scott Dixon Indy car and then to bring it alive in the simulator with all the vibrations, noise and life size images is a unique chance that we are delighted to have accomplished.

Speedshow crowds impressed by the Simdeck Simulator
The Simdeck Pet 250 simulator created a buzz amongst many visitors to the http://www.speedshow.co.nz expo here in Auckland last weekend. The event had many highlights, amongst those being meeting kiwi Scott Dixon the Indy Championship 2008 who made a flying visit to the show for about 4 hours. It was a delight to meet his Dad who confirmed that the show easily met international shows, howbeit on a smaller scale.

We will be posting a photo report, plus updating this report when we have a moment.

The opportunity to meet the man himself, and to congratulate him on his amazing motorsport achievements during 2008, exclusive autographs of his front page news, was cool part of the weekend.

Enterprise North Shore Creates Virtual Grand Prix

Ngaio found the perfect excuse to leave the office.

Ngaio found the perfect excuse to leave the office.

The Enterprise North Shore business development organisation recently held the celebration event for the announced finalists in the 2008 Westpac Enterprise North Shore Excellence in Business. SimDeck was there to add the buzz activity for the evening event outside the Westpac bank offices.

Ngaio Merrick, Project Co-ordinator for ENS and now budding high speed sim driver, decided that the SimDeck experience was the “must do it” event for the highly acknowledged business competition that acknowledges many of the North Shore businesses who enter the annual business competition.

The business competition sponsored by a range of succesful North Shore companies is to encourage and assist companies grow and meet higher levels of success both in New Zealand and off-shore.

The SimDeck event was appreciated by a number of business people who attended the event and none more so than the three category winners who took away their respective cup and bottles of champagne.

The competition was very tight – both verbally and in racing – but one finalist stood out with a time of just 56 seconds round the track which many others could not negotiate in less than a minute. Carl Le Vert, a software engineer, from Flow B2B Software took away the trophy and champagne on the night.
 
The Awards Sponsors also competed and it was the General Manager of the North Shore Times, Alan Barr, who proved his mettle as he took away the Fastest Sponsor trophy with a time of 1.02 minutes.  Andy Burrows from Icon Business Solutions was the Fastest Judge on the night with a time of 58 seconds.
