If you are a racing fan, but don’t necessarily want to don a fire suit and drive faster than 200mph, don’t worry—Nissan of Lake Charles has you covered. To get the racing experience without actually getting behind the wheel of a race car, consider getting behind the wheel of a simulator. Here are the top three driving simulators that are currently on the market.
It really doesn’t get any better than iRacing. After all, it’s what some pros use to train. You race on tracks that were scanned using high-tech laser technology. That means you can feel the slightest bump from the actual track that the simulator was modeled from.
The strength of this simulator is how realistic the feel of driving is. You can be driving on worn-out tires and this will have a real effect on how the vehicle handles. Same thing if you happen to drive through a wet patch of road.
Live For Speed may not be the most realistic driving simulator on the market but it probably has the most active online community of all of the driving simulators out there. It has also been around a long time and has many loyal followers.
Of course, these top three driving simulators don’t have a dress code. So you could wear that fire suit if you wanted to…
You expect a Heisman Trophy winner to be good at football, but you might not know that many of them really know how to hammer a nail, too. For the fourth year in a row, the Heisman Trophy Trust has partnered up with Nissan to construct a Habitat for Humanity home in Nashville.
The Heisman Trophy winners participating in the build are:
Tim Brown (Notre Dame)
Mark Ingram (Alabama)
George Rogers (South Carolina)
Billy Sims (Oklahoma)
Current Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota (Oregon)
These Heisman Trophy winners are joined by the future homeowner Mohammed Berema and his wife, Khadija Aldom. They will also be joined by various teams of Nissan volunteers for a month-long build.
Jeremy Tucker, VP of marketing for Nissan said, “We’re grateful to these athletes for joining in this unique partnership…to help Berema and Aldom and their family improve their living conditions through home ownership.”
The partnership between Nissan and Habitat for Humanity has been a long and fruitful one. According to a press release from the automaker, Nissan employees have helped to build 70 homes and the Nissan has donated $13 million since 2006.
