Racecar driver Bertrand Godin takes passengers on a VR driving experience at the Montreal International Auto Show


D-BOX, a motion seating technology company, has announced to present an unparalleled immersive driving experience at the Montreal International Auto Show. D-BOX has teamed up with ICAR, Canada’s ultimate motor sports complex, to offer a demonstration of immersive virtual reality.Attendees of the auto show will be given the opportunity to ride shotgun in a racecar piloted by Bertrand Godin, spokesperson for the 2017 Montreal Show. The 4-minute ride takes passengers on an exciting lap around the 14 turn ICAR track at Mirabel.

From the driver’s seat, Godin will let the passengers know what they are about to experience. He’ll put the car through its paces to deliver a highly believable feel for every twist, turn, stop and breathtaking acceleration that would happen in an actual racecar. The action-packed VR experience is designed to give participants a taste of what they can expect when D-BOX launches their driving simulators at ICAR in Mirabel this spring.

Yannick Gemme, Vice President of D-BOX, says, “Our cutting-edge motion technology is designed to recreate the precise feeling of what it’s like to sit in the passenger seat of a racecar with Bertrand Godin, one of the country’s most experienced and seasoned drivers. It’s sure to be one of the main attractions at the Auto Show.”

The special opportunity to experience this high-end simulator will be waiting for all visitors at the Montreal International Auto Show, kiosk level 5-14 from January 20 to 29th, 2017.
