Frosty heats things up at Racecentre Sydney!

Thursday, August 30, 2012

At the official opening of Racecentre Sydney last Friday night, 7 lucky fans got the chance to race against Frosty in our new full motion simulators. The winners included Alex Waddell, Gab Wild, Jayson Darke, Dion Clewett, Matt Anderson, Michael Stipo, and Matt Batger. In an Australian first, Racecentre in Sydney hooked up online with Racecentre in the Gold Coast to have head-to-head race off with the V8 Champ. Frosty had his work cut out for him avoiding a few novices around the track, and was nudged out a few times. Winner of the event was GC Member Nigel Faull who took out the podium finish in fine form. 

Frosty said "These simulators nowadays are so realistic that it really is the closest fans can get to the real thing. Like most of the guys in V8 Supercars I have a simulator at home". But compared to the sims at Racecentre, home set ups have a long way to go. Still, at around $30,000 per sim, full-motion sims are not quite at the affordable level for most enthusiasts. 

The night finished with the Team from Orrcon Racing having a crack at the Eastern Creek track,with lots of laughs and spills around the circuit. Well done to all the guys who came along and thanks to Stew @ Orrcon for organising the event. Big thanks to Frosty who took time out of his busy schedule to be with us for the special evening.
