Hisense and TGN Racing Simulators are joining forces to build the “first 4K racing simulator in Africa”.
The rig will be used by professional drivers during practice and training sessions while at Zwartkops Raceway, near Pretoria.
“The simulators have been engineered to provide a precise racing environment, each complete with advanced force feedback steering wheels, racing pedals and bucket seats, with some specially imported to South Africa,” the press release explains.
The rig will also boast three 55-inch 4K screens, to simulate the view from the racing cockpit.
“At Hisense we are committed to products that can keep up with the high demands of our customers. TGN’s racing simulators certainly command high performance, and it doesn’t come as a surprise that our televisions deliver on that front,” Hisense South Africa’s brand manager Ryan Curling explains.
This partnership also ties in with Hisense’s current racing co-ops with Red Bull Racing.
