It’s a smoking hot July at our Simulator Centres!
Track of the Month:
This month we are featuring Donington Park, scene of Ayrton Senna’s epic race at the 1993 European GP. On his opening lap in the pouring rain he overtook 7 cars on the opening lap and went on to a victory so emphatic as to make some of the other drivers look like rank amateurs. It is a fast flowing track, with big elevation changes and a couple of unsighted corners. Learn these and you will be the one to beat!
This month, our Rookie car is a Renault Clio Cup. This one make championship has long been a favourite with drivers and fans alike. The racing is always door handle close! The cars are fun to drive with 200hp and failsafe front wheel drive handling. As always with front wheel drive, be precise on the brakes, get the corner entry speed right then power on through the apex.
Club License Car
Club license holders get to compete this month in a Datsun 510. A what? It’s a lovely 70’s touring car. Only 190hp? Yup, but it only weighs 770kg on fully independent racing suspension and fat slick tyres and this was enough for legends like Peter Brock to put Datsun/Nissan on the competition map world-wide. It came in and put all the European makers on notice that the automotive world was about to change forever. Will it slide at the front? Yup. Will it slide from the back? Yup. Does it like stopping? Not really. Does it absolutely fly along and make all the right race car noises? You bet!
Race License Car
This month get into a Mercedes SLS AMG. This was the first car built from the ground up by AMG, the Mercedes tuning house. Built to the GT3 racing regulations, this represents a state of the art GT road car with minor modifications for racing. Developed by David Coulthard and loved by Jeremy Clarkson! It is fast and well balanced, but watch out for the power slides and get the speed off early when arriving at the corners to kill the understeer.
