I was notified by Marzouq yesterday that the GulfRun team had spent the last 5 months fine tuning/developing a racing simulator and it was setup in Baroue in the Avenues’s 1st floor. Of course I immediately agreed for 2 reasons. 1) me being a gaming enthusiast. 2) because everything these guys do is professional and I still haven’t seen them do any half-assed job yet. just have a look at their events, videos, and all other stuff.
The sim was amazing, it is a 3 screen setup that any geek would love and appreciate. A full motion seat that makes turning every corner a thrill and an ultra realistic track-mapping. The track was actually scanned and produced with extreme detail, even the damn bumps in the straight are there.
The GulfRun Simulator is open to the public, the price of admission is KD2.5 and its located as I mentioned in Baroue’s upper level in the Avenues mall.
They were logging blogger lap times, I didn’t even think of asking whats my best time was. But they will be on the side screens for onlookers to enjoy and giggle at.
If I find the time, I might go back there again tomorrow. I think I just found something else to do at the Avenues other than eating Shake Shack burgers.

So this is not just a phenomenon in Kuwait. I really hate it when you are sitting there respecting others and then some idiot comes a disrespect everyone. Some people here in Kuwait have really poor road manners and are in desperate need of some spanking.
A Lithuanian mayor is trying to reduce illegal parking in his city by taking an APC (Armored Personnel Carrier) and driving over the cars.
1973, The Dutch Grand Prix. A car crash left british driver Roger Williamson trapped in his overturned burning car. David Purley, abandoned his won race, runs across the track in a desperate attempt to get his countrymen out of his burning vehicle.
Purley’s were in vain. Extinguishing the flames and turning the car upright was just too much to ask from one man.
You can really feel David Purley’s frustration and hopelessness during his solo heroic attempt. As nearby track marshals just stood and watched as they weren’t properly trained or equipped to deal with the situation.
He actually heard Williamson crying for help when he first got to the car. And the sad thing is that Roger Williamson actually died from asphyxiation.

Having a blast.
