    Played the latest F1 2013 racing game? You'll be aware just how realistic racing games are getting then, particularly if you've been playing them long enough to remember what F1 games were like a couple of decades ago. But there's still something missing--that sense of movement, a fully immersive environment, and a cramped cockpit in which to sit. Lounging on your sofa in your pants, joypad in hand, doesn't quite fit the F1 lifestyle. Perhaps the Motionators race simulators in Melbourne, Australia is the best way for regular Joes to get a taste of F1. According to Motoring, the experience can...

    Racing, track days, and other forms of four-wheeled motorsports are tremendous fun; that's something many of us understand first-hand. But some of us don't have the time or the budget to dedicate to getting a real car on a real track. For some, simulators are as close as they can get on a regular basis.

  • Lexus driving simulator

    What's the most advanced computer in a modern car? The ECU controlling your car's fuelling, ignition, throttle and more? Or perhaps it's the in-car infotainment systems with satellite navigation and downloadable apps? None of the above, says Lexus. The most advanced computer in the modern car is you, the driver.
