Today I went Pure Tech Racing close to Gatwick in the UK to try out their Formula 1 simulators with a couple of friends.
I managed to qualify in pole position for both races, but was taken out by the pack at the hairpin on the first lap in both races. My fastest lap at 1:05:394 was just 4 seconds off the lap record, which is not too bad after just 60 laps in the car.
When driving the cars on track the motion of the simulators was not as forceful as I was expecting and the driving experience was very arcade biased. An enjoyable day and I’m sure I’ll be back to try and improve my lap time.
