As a RACER reader, we suspect you may be looking to give or
receive gifts with a certain theme. Here’s our guide to a wide
variety of motorsports-oriented gifts. The most wonderful
time of the year? It will be if you land any of these.
<< BOB EARL RACING SIMULATOR
One of the best ways to improve your driving – and
make it through the traditional racing off-season – is
with a performance simulator from Bob Earl Racing.
Earl’s professional career went into the design of the
VRC MKII, which allows drivers to put themselves in a
realistic driving position for any and all games, and it
will fit almost every wheel/pedal combination on the
market. A fully adjustable, welded, steel frame with a
durable powdercoat finish also features a fully
reclining seat for extended comfort.
<< CODEMASTERS’ F1 2011
The chance to race the most current season
of Formula 1 comes to life thanks to
Codemasters’ F1 2011. New innovations
such as the movable rear wing, the Drag
Reduction System and KERS are in full effect
– testing your ability to utilize the new
features and maximize performance. All the
2011 team and car packages are present –
which means you have a fighting chance of
beating Sebastian Vettel – if you’re capable!
Released for the XBOX 360, PlayStation 3
and Games for Windows LIVE platforms,
with handheld devices to come.
