Classic car racing is a thing of beauty, immersing yourself in the history of the sport, smelling the engines firing up, hearing them zoom past but all in the while worrying that if there is a shunt it will be very costly to life and wallet. It is a risk that many take. But what if you could greatly reduce that risk till the race itself?
The Classic Car Trust, dedicated to fostering the heritage, enjoyment, and preservation of classic cars in a fast-moving world has teamed up with some of the best in the automotive world; Pininfarina, Zagato and Racing Unleashed to create a racing simulator like no other.
Taking state-of-the-art high-end simulator technology, developed with the team behind Assetto Corsa – used by race drivers for training purposes – and converting into a unique classic car driver experience, allowing owners to take their near priceless cars on track in a exquisitely designed frame that pitches and yaws according to the driver’s input.
From 2021, owners will be able to compete in a gentleman’s championship or go for a drive by themselves depending on their mood. The exclusive club will give owners and drivers access to training sessions and coaching programs. Details are a little sparse but word is that the simulator will cost around €6,000 with deliveries starting in 2021 and will look great in any man cave.
