Jenson Button, McLaren and Cruden go Virtual vs Reality

    Yesterday Jenson Button and the McLaren F1 2008 paid a little visit to the town of Roggel, The Netherlands. Trying to set a fast lap and some showing off for the sponsor of the event Vodaphone Jenson hammered the car around the track where in normal life the speeds hardly go up 50 km/h but for this occasion he went above 250 km/h on the narrow purpose built circuit.

    At the same time Cruden BV, in the sim racing world known for their amazing Hexatech motion simulators and the creators of the free sim racing game "Racer", which forum is hosted right here on RaceDepartment, were also present to let the population of Roggel (and far beyond) enjoy the virtual track and the powerful McLaren.

    Find below the impressive demo of Jenson Button and a movie showing Cruden's Formula 1 simulator, as used by the real F1 teams, in full effect!

    A short video of the pre-event testing of the simulator!
