As the last snow is melting away and winter is finally stepping off its throne, it is about time we start talking about our travel plans. We are finalizing our calendar of events to visit this year with the SCS sim trailer, and the first stop on the journey is clear - the famous Truckfest Peterborough. We hope to see a lot of our UK fans in Peterborough on 6th & 7th of May, 2018!
Our sim trailer has been through a technical upgrade over the winter, and the motion seats are also getting an overhaul - they are currently equipped with a real truck seat and a steering wheel including elements of the instrument cluster. This should raise the simulation fidelity to a whole new level.
We are looking forward to meeting our hardcore fans as well as people all-new to the truck sim phenomenon. The last season was a great trial, and this year we are going to appear at yet more events in yet more countries.
Our two-day presence at Truckfest Peterborough will be spiced up by a couple of visits from notable figures in the fan community. As we have learned that Paul a.k.a the Squirrel is going to be at Truckfest, too, we have invited him to come and see us at our sim trailer. Who knows what happens, perhaps he may find the time to give his fans an autograph or two.
Actually, we went even further, and we are joining forces to co-promote our respective visits of Peterborough with a giveaway. During an upcoming Squirrel's Sunday Night Trucking stream (most likely the one on April 22 we understand), Paul will randomly pick five lucky winners who will receive a big bag of goodies - as long as they can show up in person at Truckfest Peterborough and present us with a secret phrase. The prize will include a selection of cool ETS2 and ATS merchandise from SCS Software plus a Squirrel's signed cap. You can enter the giveaway via this entry form. And of course, you should keep an eye on Squirrel's Twitch Channel.
There will be more celebrity guests showing up at our sim trailer, for now, we are happy to confirm that DJ London from Truckers.FM will come and join us as well. Tune in their radio stream for more of their plans for Truckfest.
What if you cannot make it to Peterborough for a first-hand experience of the motion seats in our sim trailer, or to try to pry some secrets from the SCS crew? Let's see if any of these planned locations make it any easier for you...
