Australian company opens new motorsport attraction in Darling Harbour.

This weekend Racecentre will open the doors to its newest attraction in Darling Harbour, which is set to change the way in which fans interact with motorsport.

Racecentre, operators of Australia's Most Advanced Racing Simulation Centres has created a new experience where drivers can race against each other in full-motion, 180o vision, surround sound simulators… on any car, on any track, worldwide.

Drivers can race V8, F1, Rally, Drift, Ferrari and Lamborghinis just to name a few. Popular tracks include Bathurst, Albert Park, Monaco and Nurburgring amongst hundreds of others.

Enda Murphy, Racecentre’s Chief Director says he wanted to create an experience that challenged drivers in the closest possible way to the real thing. “These simulators are incredibly realistic. Each simulator has full motion so drivers can feel every corner, ripple strip and bump. Along with surround sound and surround vision we think we have created something really special.”

“What makes the experience so fun is that you can race your mates in live, real-time racing. It makes for lots of laughs. We are really looking forward to showing Sydneysiders some fun” Murphy says.

V8 Supercar Champion Mark Winterbottom will be at a Racecentre’s private launch party this Friday night and says “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 and will be getting a few practice laps in this week before the big race next Friday.” Winterbottom says.

The new attraction will open its doors to the public on Saturday 25th August and is open 7 days week from 10am til 10pm.
