Rentertainment is an Australian event company and has partnered with Digital Jalebi for multiple projects. They required a Virtual Reality experience for Formula-1 that places the user in shoes of the pitstop crew in either single player time trial, or 2 people competing against each other.

Initially user gets a tutorial inside the workshop where all the interactions are taught. The user has to pick up a wheel-gun to unscrew an old tyre from the vehicle, place a new one and screw it in. To mark it as done, user has to raise hand which is a common gesture in F1 to notify that the wheel has been screwed in.

Two handed control is required to pick up tyre. Can only be dragged a bit with one controller if dropped, to give sensation of weight. If released, all objects returns to original position. Haptics provide an extra layer or sensory feedback.
