Formula 1 (F1) is one of the most well-known motorsports, with some considering the pinnacle of racing. Just like most sports fans want to get up close and into the action, seeing their favourite cars and drivers. To make this easier than ever, F1 has partnered with The Dream VR to provide plenty of behind-the-scenes immersive entertainment.
The Dream VR will offer its users unique access to Formula 1 events, enabling fans to share in the excitement of the starting grid, podium celebrations, and the Pirelli Hot Laps. They will also be able to ‘walk’ along the paddock, enter exclusive hospitality facilities, feel the adrenaline of a team garage and share the fans’ experience in the grandstand.
Content will be available via The Dream VR app later this month, with content from the 2018 F1 season arriving before Christmas. To start with viewers will gain access to the 2018 Mexican Grand Prix, including behind-the-scenes footage of Lewis Hamilton’s fifth world title celebration, followed by the Formula 1 2018 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix soon after.
VR 360º experiences will be recorded at ten races next year, to be distributed via The Dream VR app.
To enjoy the new F1 content when it arrives all you need to do is download The Dream VR app for Oculus Rift, Oculus Go, Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream and HTC Vive. The app also supports iOS and Android devices as well as smart TV’s. It features a range of 360-degree content – not just sport – with categories like food, music, art, and fashion to name a few.
As further updates are made to The Dream VR, VRFocus will keep you updated.
