simulatorIndy Racing League team owner and driver Sarah Fisher this week signed an endorsement deal with SimCraft Racing Simulators. Fisher will appear at the company’s booth Jan. 8-11 at the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas when it launches its series of racing simulators.

SimCraft’s car racing simulators include the APEX SC830 and the APEX SC320, patent-pending military-grade simulators that bring the sense of touch to the home market. The APEX SC830 was developed for the training of professional racers (and racing fanatics) and offers “three degrees of freedom.” The APEX SC320 was designed for the hardcore gamer and offers "two degrees of freedom."

“The APEX SC830 is possibly the best real-life simulator I've ever experienced,” Fisher said. “As far as the feedback the driver receives from the device, it’s very similar to being in an actual race car. To be honest, the first time I used it, I was speechless. I’m very impressed with the capabilities and I will definitely be spending more time on the APEX as I prepare to run the 2009 [IRL] series circuit.”

Duno featured in parade: IRL driver Milka Duno will be among the guests of honor in the Three Kings Day Parade on Jan. 11 in Miami. Duno will be featured during the 39th annual event with actor Fernando Allende and Florida Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez. The parade begins at noon (local time) along 8th Street in Miami.

  • Sarah is a very positive, focused person and works hard to achieve welcome endorsements. She deserves the opportunity for her hard work, humility and perseverance. Great job, Sarah!!!
  • Sarah sure does get a lot of deals, unfortunately none of them seem to be either the right deals or big enough deals to put her on the track in a decent car. It makes you wonder.
  • Maybe if sarah lost a little weight and added somne after market bumpers like milka did......:lol:
  • DaHooey,
    I can't belieive you spend your time perusing the IBJ website. All of your childish and negative comments on everything would indicate an uneducated background making me believe you would not know what IBJ stood for. If this is not the case please rise to the level of politeness and common courtesy extended by others. Remember the old adage our mother's taught us: If you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all.

    At this time in our nation's history we need to be positive and strong not only with our attitude but our works. This great country will rebound but only time will tell how long it takes. With people like you always being negative it will take a lot longer.
  • Doug:

    Well said about Hot Air Hooey. He really needs to tame the critical and sometimes defaming rhetoric.
  • The APEX SC830 was developed for the training of professional racers...

    So why was Fisher involved?
  • Hats off to Sarah for signing any deal in these economic times... taking nothing away from her - those simulators don't even look like race cars... Interactive Motorsports (317.295.3500) - and Indiana company - has REAL simulators for NASCAR Cup cars (and rumored to be NHRA Funny Cars soon)... if you want to see, hear and FEEL the real action in 3-D at Bristol, Daytona, and Indy to name a few you need to experience them - they will be in the SPRINT EXPERIENCE again at 2009 NASCAR Cup car events... they also have a new simulator for the V8 Supercars runing on Bathurst! Good racing to all!

  4. The question is, where could they build a new stadium? It seems in the past year, all the prime spots have been spoken for with potential projects. Maybe in the industrial wasteland area a block past Lucas Oil? I think it needs to be close to the core, if a new stadium is built.

  5. Aldi is generally a great shopping experience. Still, I'm sure YOU wouldn't want to shop there, which I consider a positive.
