February 2010

Incouraged by many inquiries we decieded to arrange another set of "Open Door"-days in February in addition to the traditional Open Door -days held in July. Tuesdays from 15:00 to 18:00 o´clock and Wednesday from 11:00 to 14:00 o´clock in February were chosen to be the "lucky days". Unfortunately we had a water damage in our facilities and repairing of the damage could not be made without interrupting our simulator functions.

The renovation that started on February 15th led to the unfortunate situation where we were forced to cancel already booked events and also the Open Door -days. This was the first time in Team Simrac´s history we had to do so. We would like to apologize sincerely about the interruption and trouble that the renovation caused. We also hope we can provide the customers who´s events we had to cancel new suitable dates to replace the cancelled ones.

The Open Door -days that had to be canceled will continue as soon as the renovation is over. Information of this will be published on our web page and in Moro-magazine.

Team Simrac participated the Information & Initiative Days (I & I days) organized by the European Social partners, the European Transport Workers' Federation (ETF) for the employees, and the European Committee of UITP for the employers, with the collaboration of the AFT, in Bruxelles Belgium on February 4th and 5th. Among many great speakers our education simulator customers Mr. Aarno Lybeck from TTS and Mr. Jan Deman from FCBO had their turn at the speaker ´s podium. The event was by all means pleasant and interesting. Many thanks to all participants as well as the organizers.

September 2010

On Saturday, September 11th, Simrac Focus visited Orimattilan Kehräämö at a customer day- happening arranged by Mur-Mar Oy. Thanks to all participants, organizers and the staffs of companies operating at the Kehräämö facilities.

Highslide JSJonne Aaron from the rock band Negative and Ville Liimatainen from Flinch despite their busy schedule stoped by to take Simrac Focus for a spin. After a calm start the competetive instinct started to sneak in and crashes and roll-overs couldn´t be avoided in this brotherly race. Luckily it was "just" a simulator so the drivers were unharmed and the car suffered no real damage. The race was tight and small mistakes turned out to cost a lot. On Jonne´s best run the clock was stopped at 2:46,90 and Ville´s best was 3:03,48. Thanks for your visit and all the best and success for both!  More pictures in our gallery and some InCar video will be posted later on.
