Cruden shows the I-Way
Cruden, the Netherlands-based motion simulation company, has created a race track around the streets of Lyon in France for simulator centre attraction, I-Way.
The 7.9km track tours famous landmarks such as Bellecour, old Lyon and Opera, plunging guests into the Croix Rousse tunnel and crossing the Saone and Rhone rivers a number of times.
Drivers of I-Way's six Formula 1 and six endurance simulators can reach 320km per hour; guests who choose to drive the Citroen C2 cars can drive a special rally cross track devised around the Place Bellecour.
Lyon-based I-Way was the world's first professional motion simulator centre when it opened in 2008, and president and general director Pierre Nicolas puts working with simulator hardware and software supplier Cruden on fresh, annual updates, at the heart of the centre's continued success.
"We devise a very innovative new experience for our customers at least once per year," Nicholas said. "Following the success of our race track on the moon, the Lyon street track is our special attraction this year."
