The Challenge

To bolster the F1 experience, comprising of 53 racing simulators, TVC were once again tasked with improving the social and competitive aspects of F1 Arcade. This involved installing a variety of large-screen TVs, a multi-zone video distribution and audio system, and a captivating LED video wall display. In addition to these technological enhancements, TVC provided a selection of specialised lighting effects to accompany a feature piece life-sized F1 car suspended from the ceiling.
