The official launch of Gates of Harlow took place on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th February. As part of the weekend festivities, visitors were challenged to test their driving skills on a full motion simulator.

The Full Motion Simulator provides an authentic racing experience with realistic visuals, surround sound and most of all, real-world physics that make you feel like you are actually behind the wheel! This proved very popular over the course of the launch weekend with many entrants pitting their wits against one another on world famous tracks.

As if that wasn't enough, there was further incentive for our racing enthusiasts - the participant with the fastest lap time would win a Paul Swift Stunt Driving Experience Day.

That lucky winner was James Sorce. James achieved an incredible lap time of 47.840 seconds!

James is pictured collecting his prize from Mark Bennett, Dealer Principal at Gates of Harlow FordStore. James said: "As a racing game enthusiast, the full motion simulator really appealed to me and it didn't disappoint." James continues "I was delighted with my lap time, even more so when I learned that I'd won the stunt driving day! Thank you to all at Gates for the opportunity".
