Milton Keynes MP Iain Stewart set the pace at the brand new BluePrint Simulator Racing as he took to the Brands Hatch circuit in a BMW Z4 GT3.
The MP visited the new leisure facility within Formula Fast Indoor Racing Circuit in Bletchley to officially launch the latest venture created by the award winning entrepreneurs, Ollie Fox and Phil Stanley.
Iain said: “it was a real pleasure to visit Formula Fast and experience the new Blueprint simulators. It is a tough challenge but I would certainly recommend visiting and giving it a go.
“I take my hat off to the Ollie and Phil who are not only working hard running the business but are constantly looking at new innovative opportunities to expand.
“They clearly have that entrepreneurial drive which I am sure will take them far.”
BluePrint is the most advanced multiplayer racing simulator experience in the UK.
Featuring six driving simulators in total, each pod immerses the driver in a wraparound driving experience created by three 40-inch high-definition screens. BluePrint Racing combines racing car steering, pedal and gear controls with rFactor2 software, allowing the driver to select from almost every racing circuit in the world and choose from a huge range of cars.
Each pod is packed with features, and the owners are keen to distinguish the difference between racing simulators and an arcade game.
Ollie says: “We were delighted that Iain visited us and has given his support for our latest business. We’ve invested heavily in BluePrint and it is already is proving very popular.
“With incredibly realistic hardware, racing around the Brands Hatch as tough as driving the real thing. You feel every bump, dip and sensation through the controls and seat – it really is like driving the real thing – and Iain did incredibly well for his first time.”
BluePrint Racing is set within a dedicated, blacked out room, with each driver given their own headset for a fully immersive experience and to communicate with other drivers.
This also allows the instructor to talk to each driver, give advice and relay information about their performance.
BluePrint Simulator Racing costs from £12 per person and can be booked for group or individual sessions. Catering can be provided for party bookings.
