A new virtual and immersive experience in partnership with the ACO
Fans can also enjoy a 360° experience of the championship’s return. The EWC 360 Fan Tour by TAG Heuer is a new interactive video platform combining virtual reality and 360° video. It will be accessible free of cost from noon this Friday through your computer, tablet, smartphone or VR headset, and provide an unforgettable experience. This fully immersive experience rolled out in partnership with the ACO, the 24 Heures Motos organizer, lets you enter places that are usually off-limits to the public and look around from any angle you choose: a pit box tour, access to the starting grid, a refuelling stop with you as a member of the pit crew, an exploration of Race HQ, the most secret space on the circuit, an on-board tour with commentary by the rider, the thrill of being the winner going past the chequered flag, the podium ceremony and a look inside Eurosport’s OB van.
Even more amazingly, we’ll be offering you a Street View-style 360° virtual tour of the main grandstand along the start/finish straight, with a visit to the pit boxes.
Available from Friday 28 August on www.ewc360fantour.com and on all the FIM EWC, ACO and 24 Heures Motos platforms and social media.
