Racing Unleashed 2021
Mugello (ITA) - November 21 2021
Racing Unleashed is a virtual racing games which makes the gamers sweat.
On every raceday the sim racers have to prove their skills on a different circuit. This time on the Circuit of Silverstone. The Silverstone Circuit is a race track near Silverstone. It is best known for the British Grand Prix of Formula 1, which has been held on this circuit more than forty times.
A new generation of high-tech racing simulators sets a new benchmark in the field of race simulation. They make the race not only a mental but also a physical challenge:
The tools of the pilots are not game consoles, keyboards and computer mouses like in classic E-sport. They are sitting in a racing simulator, using a steering wheel which they use to change gears, step on the gas and have a huge screen in front of them. The seats are made of carbon fiber and have an integrated ventilation system. Pilots have to handle the most advanced steering wheel in racing simulation. They have to push the pedals while fighting with physical forces created by a five-point seat belt system simulating acceleration and delay in the vehicle.
Big names which were earlier part of Formula 1 are closely related to this project: Race Commissar of Racing Unleashed is former Formula 1 pilot Andrea Montermini (ITA). CEO is Monisha Kaltenborn, former CEO of Sauber Motorsport AG.
In this area where reality and virtuality overlap a heterogeneous starting field arises consisting of E-Gamers and racing-car drivers – all competing against each other in the same virtual race in different European Racing Lounges
