The Formula One 2009 Season gets underway in a few days time and we’re celebrating with a Special F1 Open House so you can also race on the Melbourne circuit. The cars are new, the rules have changed a season of drama is about to unfold, so here is your chance to get behind the wheel of an actual real open wheeler race car and take it out onto the virtual Melbourne track.

NZ’s only current Formula One driver Brendan Hartely, who was going to be driving as the reserve driver in the Red Bull team missed out on getting his super license in time so we think it is only fitting that you will be driving the virtual version of his car around Melbourne. Come and experience a high speed adrenalin rush in the life size and life like virtual SimDeck world.

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 on the first weekend of the 2009 Formula One season.

With speeds of over 300kph, split second timing, accurate driving lines and serious concentration we expect to see some nervous drivers taking the controls.

There is a small charge of $5 per driver which will give you at least 5 minutes or more in the car.

This experience is unique in NZ that has 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 as you race an actual race car.
