Last year, I got to experience Castrol® EDGE® Virtual Drift with Matt Powers using the Oculus Rift headset. in 2016, the Titanium Trials are back with two new videos to launch Castrol® EDGE® Supercar Oil, pushing the limits of cars, virtual reality tech, and, of course, Castrol EDGE.
If you’re lucky enough to have ever seen the Koenisgsegg One:1 or the Aston Martin Vulcan in person, you know that they are breathtaking vehicles. On the track they are phenomenal supercars; this time, they teamed up with REWIND for a different sort of virtual reality – to have drivers Christoffer Nygaard and Darren Turner race against themselves in the supercars on a virtual version of the Ascari race track in Spain. Nygaard, a test driver for Koenigsegg and Turner, a two-time Le Mans winner, were recorded in virtual sessions on the simulator. The data was then combined to create their top virtual lap, ultimately racing their Clone Rivals on the real 5.435km track.
