Virtual Reality Formula 1 Racing Game Online

16 April 2012 by Devon Chappell

Have you ever wanted to drive a Ferrari? Heck, for all I know, you might even own one (especially if you won a big chunk from Mona Casino’s aggregated progressive jackpot currently worth over $3 million). But for most of us who’ve never driven the cream de la cream of automobiles, aka the prancing horse, I think I can speak for everyone and answer that question with another ¬†question: Who wouldn’t want to drive a Ferrari?

OK, maybe fast cars aren’t for everyone. But when we’re talking about a virtual fast car – that is, a virtual Ferrari – most folks wouldn’t pass up the opportunity for a non-consequential test spin, which in itself, will soon be put to the test at the WhirlyDome in Orlando, Florida – where Evotek Engineering recently installed an F1 simulator called SYM 026, which provides the most realistic virtual Ferrari Formula 1 racing experience one can currently experience.

The first simulator made exactly as the those used by professional F1 racing teams, the SYM 026 body shell is built to motor sport industry specifications, while the proprietary software driving the experience graphically renders the racetrack into high resolution based on scans of real tracks. Furthermore, SYM 026 processes and displays driving data, such as gas levels and wheel status, in exactly the same way a real Formula 1 Ferrari would. Check out this video for a taste. Even the video of the video invokes the feeling of the “real” thing:

Here’s more video of the EvoTekSimulator

Although the professional version of Evotek’s SYM 026 is not readily available to the mass public, other than at the WhirlyDome in Orlando this Spring, the company also offers a training version (used at car racing schools) and a virtual game version to be used for entertainment purposes, and hopefully,(keep your fingers crossed), online gaming.

Currently, the virtual game of SYM 026 provides the same visual and physical experience as that created by the professional version, with the exception of less driving data thought to possibly serve as a needless distraction. I, for one, would have preferred the extra data – sacrificing distraction for as authentic an experience as possible is fine with me. Also sacrificed was a little bit of graphic quality so that Evotek could integrate a platform made by software company, rFactor, that would enable virtual racing with a wider variety of cars and tracks, including INDIE races. No complaint about that.

But the coolest thing, in my opinion, that is coming out of Evotek and which holds the most promise for online gambling entertainment, is a software network feature called the Racing Center, which enables virtual races and competitions between networked players from around the world. Throw in a raked pot and you have yourself skilled based online gambling at its best…not to mention most exciting.

The SYM 026 Formula 1 virtual reality racing simulator will be available to experience firsthand at the WhirlyDome (WhirlyDome.com) later this month.
