SIDEWAYS VENUE FAQ
WHO IS THIS ACTIVITY FOR?
Virtual racing in a Sideways simulator is for anyone who loves to experience "the real thing". It is for those who want more than what their Playstation or Xbox can offer. We are several levels above the Playstation / XBox / general arcade market, and we are able to provide an experience that is very close to driving the real thing - be that a BMW Mini, a V8Supercar, or a Formula One car. Real race drivers such as Matthew Solomon, Darryl O'Young, Matthew Marsh, Jonathon Venter and others use the Sideways Sims to hone their race craft, a great testament to the quality and realism of our product. No need to worry though, we make it an enjoyable experience for beginners too!
