Munich, 28 August 2014 – The first SimRacingExpo takes place on 20 and 21
September 2014 at the Nürburgring, combining virtual motorsports with real racing action. It has now been confirmed that racing simulator manufacturers STL and Ellip6 will also be
exhibiting their products at the event. Both companies’ simulators showcase the latest simulation
technology and extraordinary features, offering visitors a completely unique racing sensation.
STL (Simulationstechnik Lingnau) was founded just this year, and its Actoracer simulator is set to give visitors to the SimRacingExpo an incredibly realistic racing experience. Simulated
functions include accelerating, breaking, taking curves and track conditions. The simulator even allows SimRacingExpo visitors to experience exterior factors such as contact with another vehicle or driving over the curb as if they were in a real vehicle. What’s more, the simulator can be adjusted to all driver types, providing visitors of any size with a completely unique racing experience in perfect conditions.
Ellip6, whose simulators are renowned for their state-of-the-art technology, will also be represented at the SimRacingExpo. The Ellip6 simulators use electric motor technology instead of the usual hydraulic system. Car manufacturers and airlines also use electric motors in their simulators to create a particularly smooth and realistic racing experience. The Ellip6 simulators offer racing fanatics a selection of faithfully reproduced circuit simulations to choose from – including Monaco, Spa, and even the Nürburgring itself. New tracks may be added at any time.
“With the Actoracer and the Ellip6, the SimRacingExpo has gained two simulators that both create an incredibly realistic racing sensation,” says Marc Hennerici of event organiser ADAC
Mittelrhein e.V. “Our aim with the SimRacingExpo is to show both professionals and amateurs, how close simulators such as these have now come to achieving the experience of a real auto race. And this is exactly what we will be showing our visitors with these two exhibitors.”
