Introduction to the Gallery Of Speed
Singapore - Coinciding with the official start to this year’s Grand Prix Singapore Season (GPSS), the many activities organized as a part of the inaugural Festival Of Speed kicks off with the Gallery Of Speed*!
Slated as the first ever eSports experience showcase in the very heart of the city, the Gallery Of Speed pop-up structure will be situated on the broad boulevard in front of Mandarin Gallery. Housed within will be nine Next Level Racing simulator, fitted with the latest monitor screens from BenQ and the indsutry-leading force steering wheels & pedals from Logitech, for a truly realistic eRacing experience.
Visitors may also participate in a daily eSports challenge, which will be played out in a time-attack format. All you need to do is to clock the fastest time of the day and you will get to take home up to S$500** worth of prizes! As a key sponsor and partner to the Gallery Of Speed eSports experience, visitors may also ‘test drive’ an Aston Martin race car in the simulators.
In addition, the top three fastest eRacers from the Gallery of Speed will be seeded for the GameStart finals, which will be held in October. GameStart is Southeast Asia’s premier gaming convention.
Another must-see and must-experience exhibit will be the ‘TUBE-ulence’ art installation. Employing the use of long rubber engine tubes artistically bundled together with a racing simulator encapsulated within, this static art piece is designed to recreate the effects of a driver in a race car monocoque. Its combination of materials and flowing linear form also draws inspiration from the turbulent wind flows created during wind tunnel testing. This is an eRacing experience not to be missed, and likely the first ever such constructed in the world!
