FOR A DAY?
Revheads, rejoice! We know where
you can get your kicks driving any
race track in the world – without
leaving the city. And better yet,
you can have a drink. Where is this
magical place, you ask? Right in the
heart of Northbridge. Sports bar The
Grid has eight state-of-the-art race simulators, each
with a custom-made GP chassis, powered by rFactor
software for a seriously authentic experience. The
simulators can run a range of car profiles – Porsche
or V8 Supercar? Take your pick – and they can be
linked up to create a networked tournament. Don’t
know what any of that means? Don’t worry – it’s
high-octane fun for anyone. Your inner kid will love it.
But if you prefer to stay on the sidelines, there’s some
comfy spots to spectate (or just eat, drink and chill).
Hard-core racers will never want to leave.
Need to know
• Open to drivers of all levels, The Grid’s simulators
make a fun option for bucks or hens’ parties,
corporate team-building, birthdays, Christmas
functions and everything in between. Packages
are available, with catering included.
• Want a regular fix? Join The Club – a social league
with friendly tournament fixtures.
• Being a sports bar, it also offers food, drinks, music
and live screenings of sporting events.

Your artistic skills may be more
stick men than Monet, but there’s
something liberating about freestyle
drawing. And that is precisely
the attitude encouraged during
Classie’s Secret Sketch Crawls –
part art class, part walking tour.
Starting with a clipboard, pencils
and paper, you’ll get a rundown
on the essentials, such as how to
use a pencil to achieve a range
of techniques. Warm-up activities
will get you into the swing of
things, such as trying a rough silhouette of a landmark,
assessing different angles. A much-needed coffee stop
helps to revive the mind before activity two, which
allows about 30 minutes to sketch at leisure. Attempt
more advanced skills such as lines and shading, with
feedback from the friendly instructor, or simply stick to
the basics. Either way, this workshop is a great way
to see the city from a new perspective.
