A Ferrari entra no mundo dos "nossos" simuladores...

Play and win

Ferrari Virtual Academy offers you an exclusive opportunity: using your PC you can have fun and practice driving the F10, comparing for the first time your performance with the fastest laps driven by numerous Ferrari fans from all over the world and the Scuderia Ferrari drivers with the same simulators. Learn about Felipe Massa's, Fernando Alonso's and Giancarlo Fisichella's secrets regarding racing line and driving techniques! But there is more: participating in the tournament you will become part of a worldwide competition, where every week the fastest drivers will be awarded official Ferrari products.

If, at the end of the Trofeo, you are part of the five fastest drivers, you will win a trip into the heart of Ferrari: to Maranello. You will walk through the gates in Fiorano and participate in the exclusive Ferrari Driver Academy course, personally headed by exceptional tutors from the Scuderia.

How it works

When you are using the simulator in the "hot lap" mode your position in the classification and your gap to the fastest lap time is shown in real-time. Thus you can verify if your performance is close to the leaders. You can drive the Ferrari F10 using the same set ups created by the race engineers and used by the Scuderia drivers to reach the reference lap times included in the simulator. Thanks to a spectacular cinematic replay function you can then watch your best performances and the laps driven by Massa, Alonso and Fisichella. After every lap you will be informed about your position in the overall standings and when you manage to get the F10 to its limit you will see that even a tenth of a second will move you up in the standings by several positions.

The Scuderia Ferrari is about to challenge you: the race tracks of Fiorano, Mugello and Nürburgring, reproduced in every single detail, are the chosen venues, where the F10, an accurate replica of the real single-seater, will be driven to its limit. The simulator has been planned to guarantee the best possible conditions so that all virtual drivers can give it their all. There is only one referee: the stopwatch!

O Software é descarregado do site pagando 15€ e depois é ligado a um servidor comum? Não consegui perceber a filosofia da coisa. Quando a esmola é grande, o pobre desconfia.

Pagas € 15 pelo carro e pela pista de Fiorano (as outras duas também serão a pagar quando estiverem prontas, parece-me).

Ferrari has just released their Virtual Academy 2010 simulator, offering a true to life simulation of their F10 Formula One race car that can be driven on three laser-scanned tracks.
The initial release includes the F10 and Ferrari’s Fiorano testing track, selling for 14,90€. Mugello and the Nürburgring will be available at a later date for  a yet undisclosed price.
Along with the download, Ferrari has released the system requirements, revealing that the title is compatible to Track IR, three-screen setups via TripleHead2Go and nVidia 3D Vision. Also available is a list of wheels that the simulation supports with a pre-set profile.
Some new info regarding driving aids is also available as the Virtual Academy 2010 allows racers to use stability-control, braking & gear-shifting aids to get comfortable with the F10 race car. These aids can only be used in training mode as all hotlap-competition times must be set without them.

Processor: 2 GHz
Disc space: 1 GB

O site é que...coitadito, lento lento, e apresenta páginas em branco, deve estar a romper pelas costuras.
Já me tentei registar para comprar mas parece que hoje é para esquecer, vou tentar mais logo.

Estive a dar umas voltas.

O que posso dizer para já é o que se torna mais evidente num primeiro contacto.
O carro não sofre danos, os pneus parecem denotar algum desgaste, há consumo de fuel, o comportamento geral do carro é credível, os gráficos são bons, o desequilibrio do carro nos correctores está bem conseguido e a travagem agrada. Em termos de condução agradou-me neste primeiro contacto e de certeza que voltarei a mais.
Quanto à pista o alcatrão parece-me demasiado liso no que toca ao ffb mas a passagem nos correctores está em bom nível.
