Move over Ricciardo Dads are in the F1 Simulator

Motionators F1 simulatorDaniel Ricciardo has been sidelined whilst Dads & Grandads take to the seats in the new F1 simulators at Motionators facility in Docklands Melbourne.

Last week we took the ride of our lives with full motion switched to ON. The F1’s can be programmed to any race track in the world, so if you wanted to experience tracks like Monaco, Singapore  or even our own Albert Park Lake Grand Prix track , the simulator is ready to GO!

The simulators are high tech and can be programmed for a variety of experiences, drive skill, reaction times. Motion can be set from subtle through to full sound and sensory simulation – highly recommended 🙂

Drivers such as Alonso and Webber have stated that F1 simulators are critical in the training of drivers and these machines are as close to the real thing as you can get.

F1 simulators fits all sizesThe F1 Simulators are the real deal.  You squeeze into the seat, connect the steering wheel, hydraulically adjust the pedals to fit your body size.  If you take your kids, a cushion is available which my daughter used, she did a great job at negotiating the corners but often found herself in the side barriers. 🙂

Sudin at MotionatorsPrior to getting into your F1, Sudin takes your through a short briefing session, asks what track you want to race on, and gets you fitted into the simulator and provides some coaching if required.
The Motionator facility is equipped with plenty of F1 simulators and is soon to install a flight simulator too. They have a bar area, karaoke and pool table so once you have finished your race and can carry on the fun. They cater for groups, clubs and corporate team building events.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience, I personally drove the Albert Park Lake track, our new dad and our Grandad raced on the Belgium Grand Prix track against each other and my daughter raced the Suzuka Circuit in Japan.  Overall a great experience for all dads and their kids. The hour we purchased we shared between ourselves.
