Stop by for some holiday cheer and Sim Racing on Saturday, December 14 at 10am for our annual Holiday Open House to see and experience our latest 3DOF racing simulator, the Model M1 equipped with the new Valve Index VR headset and the new Fanatec DD1 direct drive wheel.

Each driver will get a 10 minute session and whoever gets the fastest lap time at Lime Rock Park in a Porsche 911 RSR wins a complementary 1 hour simulator session to be scheduled at a later date.

Lime Rock was just completely updated by iRacing so we decided to switch from the earlier publicized Watkins Glen track for this event. We'll be running the new LRP track with the chicane.

The M1 is our first production unit that includes a completely new and redesigned heavy duty steel chassis to accommodate a high end direct drive wheel and shifter with no frame flex. This is the most heavy duty frame available for a 3DOF racing simulator and it delivers a stunning and realistic race experience.

VR has definitely changed the face of racing simulation by putting you into a high performance race car in a 3D environment that realistically reacts to your movement. When we add a motion platform that is properly tuned to the VR headset graphics, the level of immersion or presence is very real.

You are there, at the track, in the car and in the race. You’ll feel the car. You’ll feel the steering. The car and tire physics are spot on. The tracks are laser scanned so you’ll feel the surface imperfections. If you lose traction, you’ll feel the backend break loose.

This is an outstanding way to experience race tracks from all over the world and to learn how to drive a high performance race car.

Attendance is limited to 15 for this event to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to experience one of the simulators.

Driver weight and height restrictions apply. Max weight: 225 lbs, max height: 6' 5".

You must bring clean driving shoes or wear clean socks! No street shoes are allowed when racing in any of our simulators.

Soft drinks (Diet Coke, Diet Root Beer, Gatorade) and water will be available. Pizza will be served around noon.

This event is held on a quarterly basis so if it fills up, check back next quarter.
