Ferrari The Race Experience is the closest you can get to the feeling of throwing a 200mph supercar around a track without donning flameproof overalls. You and 15 other Ferrari drivers pack the starting grids of some of the most demanding tracks in the world, ready to ram the pedal the metal and launch in a cloud of tyre smoke.
But before you go racing, a comprehensive tutorial teaches you how to squeeze every last drop of power from your illustrious ride. A special racing line indicator eases you into the routine of braking and accelerating at just the right moments, with friendly advice offered by Fifth Gear presenter and former professional racing driver Tiff Needell. While the indicator glows green, you can continue to accelerate – but as the line dulls to amber then red, you must hit the brakes to ensure you don’t run out of road.
Soon you will settle into the flow of one of the most realistic and challenging driving experiences around. You will quickly learn that in order to speed up, you must first slow down, so that you can then develop a rhythm of subtle braking, smooth steering and gradual acceleration, all soundtracked by that glorious Ferrari roar.
Ferrari The Race Experience’s Career Mode is split into three segments. GT Race features Ferraris tweaked and tuned to perfection to let you experience the adrenaline rush of pure racing, while Road GT puts you in the driving seat of stunning road cars fresh off the production line. Finally, Classics brings some of Ferrari’s most cherished vintage machines together on the racetrack. As you win events you gain cash to spend on new Ferraris – and as your confidence grows, you can switch off driver aids like assisted braking and traction control for bigger rewards and an even more thrilling drive.
