Virtual Racing in the Blue Box
Experience realistic race-driving action in the Blue Box located in the Autostadt GroupForum. Four unique simulators are available where racing enthusiasts can get behind the wheel and test their virtual driving skills by accelerating, braking and reacting to track conditions at lightning speed. Drivers can compete for the fastest time or race against other drivers.
Each simulator is surrounded by large screens and equipped with a steering wheel, gear shift, pedals and a deep bucket seat that moves with the track for an authentic racing sensation – complete with adrenaline rush. The different settings, extremely high dynamics and precision steering response make the experience amazingly realistic. Professional drivers use the same type of simulator for training and to prepare for unfamiliar racetracks.
Drivers can choose from six different vehicles, including an Audi R8, Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, or Audi e-tron FE 04 Formula E. The four legendary Formula 1 racetracks range from Spa-Francorchamps to the "Green Hell" of Germany's Nürburgring. A 65-inch monitor presents a bird's eye view of the track and a big 13-square-metre screen shows the racing action from all four simulators. Before the racing starts, Autostadt instructors provide a detailed briefing along with tips for the best lap times
