What better way to prepare for this weekend’s European Grand Prix in Valencia, Spain, than to turn hot laps in a high-tech simulator? The FIA limits the amount of track time permitted to each driver and team, but they have no regulations regarding the use of computer simulators. Is it the same thing? No, not really, but a computer simulator allows you to learn track layout in advance of race day and test car setups without actually turning a wheel on the track.
Besides, admit it – you would kill to have one of these simulators in your living room. I know I would, and would even build a piece of furniture around it if my wife complained. Sure, it would be one big-ass coffee table, but it would also be the world’s most entertaining living room furniture..
