Classic Simulators Offer Virtual Drives of Ingliston at Revival
Budding racing car drivers will have the chance to get behind the wheel of a classic racing simulator at the Ingliston Revival Festival and test themselves on the challenging Ingliston Circuit.
Based next to the coffee shop within the retail village complex at the Ingliston Revival Classic Car Festival on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th May, a fleet of classic racing car simulators will put members of the public to the test as they complete for the fastest lap time of a virtual Ingliston Racing Circuit. The state of the art simulators are based on classic racers on the 1960’s, including a replica of the 1967 Lotus 49 that Scottish Formula 1 driver Jim Clark won the F1 title in that year.
The simulators use state of the art technology, more than ten years in the making and offering the ultimate in graphics in a truly dynamic a racing environment for users. Many professional racing teams and drivers have used the system develop driver skills and assist with race car development and now the public can experience the realistic environment at the Ingliston Revival.
Spectators can watch the race unfold on large screens and cheer on the different drivers as they take on one of the greatest circuits of the era. A drivers leaderboard will keep score of the fastest virtual laps as classic cars complete for the fastest lap on the actual circuit outside.
The Simulator experience is available to all visitors to the event and donations from drivers will benefit our charitable partner, The Jim Clark Trust.
