May 25, 2021

A common question asked in the world of Virtual Reality (VR) is, “is VR racing worth it?”. Here at Viral Entertainment, Corby, the simple answer is "yes". In fact, it’s a no brainer really.

VR Racing Simulators are a new and emerging technology, so it’s understandable why this form of entertainment may be subject to some speculation. But the truth is, our VR racing simulators will provide you with one of the best VR experiences you will ever get.

Is VR good for racing?


You might be wondering if a simulator racing experience is realistic? You're not prepared for just how realistic it is. If you enjoy spending your afternoons racing on racetracks, then you've got to give it a go. Suppose you've ever been to Silverstone Circuit or Rockingham Motor Speedway. In that case, you already know what a real-life experience behind the wheel at high speeds feels like, and now the chance to embark on a VR racing journey has finally arrived.

In the many years the entertainment sector has been thriving, you may have come across the classic monitor-based simulator, for your wild racing experience. Now we're not one's to put a damper on such an experience, but we will say that VR certainly takes racing simulation to the next level. 

Transporting your racing skills into a virtual world makes for an unforgettable experience and one that really does put your skills to the test. With realism enhanced in motion and senses, the challenge that comes with being a good racer in VR is much more difficult.

It can also be said that people perform better in the VR racing simulation. The full 5D depth that our VR racing sims offer, allows for a more suspense and engaging environment - one where your driving and reaction times are faster.
