Race Into The Action

9th August 2007

Many gamers have a diverse range of console kit - from the latest machine to the best steering wheel, yet when it comes to racing games, things are still not real enough.

Now, a patented gaming chair, the Playseat Evolution, has been launched into the UK market and offers a whole new dimension and simulation to the experience of racing games.

Officially a sponsor of the Dutch A1 racing team and thoroughly tested by all their drivers, the Playseat Evolution builds on previous models with a more adjustable and rigid seating arrangement, and higher quality materials to ensure the chair withstands even the most vigorous of gamers!

To attain the best track times, ultimate control is needed - and that's exactly what the Playseat provides. Even some of the world's top drivers use the Playseat to build their skills and have fun. Drivers agree it's very realistic, and as close as gaming can presently get to the real thing. "It's the best car game accessory ever made, even I can use it for training and it really gives you a feeling of actually being in the car" comments Henning Solberg of the Ford Rally team. www.wrc.com/page/DriversDetail/0,,10111~772043,00.html
