How you can get hands on with a £17,000 racing simulator

The PC Gamer Weekender is next week!

The awesome new PC Gamer Weekender takes place next weekend in East London. It's a weekend dedicated to PC gaming, packed with socials, competitions, tournaments and gaming heroes.

Retailer Scan will have a shop there so you can snap up ome deals on hardware, and try out the amazing full-motion £17,000 ($22,000 USD) VRX Racing Simulator.

Three screens under a glare-eliminating canopy show the action, and a surround sound system gets you close to the roar of the engines. The chair, wheel and pedals are secured to a carbon fibre chassis.
