The Bunnings Warehouse North Shore Community Fun Day, will be an opportunity to see lap time race demonstrations on the African Kyalami Circuit, the scene of Formula One and more recently A1GP races.

Pro Sim Driver, Kevin Andreassend will give demonstrations throughout the day, of racing on the South African Kyalami circuit and will attempt to match some of the fastest lap times set during the recent A1GP series and the previously held Formula One record.

Times that need to be at least matched include:
Final Race fastest lap: Monaco of 1.m 27.269s.
Fastest on Final Practice Day - Lebanon’s Daniel Morad recorded 1m 30.816s
Frances Nicolas Prost ended the rookie session quickest with a time of 1m 33.149s
Kiwi’s Earl Bamber Final race fastest lap was 01m:27.569s
To maintain some level of respectability Kevin needs to at least match America’s time of 01m:35.130s
Nigel Mansells (Formula One) fastest lap set in 1993 was 1m:36.39s.

Between record attempts members of the public will be able to purchase tickets and try their hand at racing in the SimDeck race car simulator and set their own record attempt.

The public demonstration to achieve record laps times is a prelude to a future attempt to set a series of Guiness Book of Records racing in the life like, life size virtual world SimDeck world.

The demonstrations will be an apt reminder for the public, that driving is a skill needing constant assessment, whether it is a Formula Driver or a family driver. Sadly as this bulletin is being posted, four people have been killed in the south of Auckland in wet dark conditions taking a corner too fast. Some will say it was an accident, I would say it is an error of judgement.

In addition to the Formula One simulator car numerous community groups will be on hand to demonstrate and show their work within the local community.
