The Virtual World Meets Reality: Racing to the Top of the Gaming World

It’s been a busy season for MyCarHeaven – rallies, classic car shows, and a treasure trove of competitions. The motorsport following in the UK is bigger than ever, and it’s got the schedule to prove it. Already, the highly-anticipated 2015 Performance Car Show at the NEC in Birmingham is attracting high profile attention, with thousands of eager spectators expected to make the most of the newest in innovative models and live demonstrations this coming January, including precision driving displays. In fact, while nothing can come close to the raging growl of a beautiful engine, simulators are rapidly gaining ground at car shows while the technology for accurately representing the beautiful sport is getting better and better. And just as amazingly, many of these “simulators” can be experienced right at home.
