Munich, 8 September 2014 – SimRacingExpo 2014 is taking place on 20 and 21 September at the Nürburgring, combining virtual motorsports with real racing action. Today, organisers have announced that Vesaro simulators featuring D-BOX technology will also be present at the SimRacingExpo.
vibration technology, as well as top-quality graphics, large screens and crystal clear sound. Together, these features create an extremely realistic driving experience and near-real racing
situation that simulates the human body’s perception of kinetic stimuli such as traction loss, road texture and the curbs on the track etc. By enabling racing drivers to train for a race virtually and regardless of weather conditions, these simulators provide a definite competitive advantage. Simulators are particularly important in motorsports, as Marc Hennerici of event organiser ADAC Mittelrhein e.V. explains: “It’s an expensive sport and drivers can’t practise over and over on the track, which makes training sessions in simulators an absolute must. We are delighted to have D-BOX and Vesaro at the SimRacingExpo and offer visitors a near-real racing experience.”
D-BOX and Vesaro have also had a real influence on the driving style of Laurens Vanthoor – polesitter in the victorious Belgian Audi Club Team WRT at this year’s Total 24 Hours of Spa. “I
trained with Vesaro and D-BOX simulators for the 2014 Blancpain Sprint Series races in Brands Hatch,” Vanthoor reports. “I had no previous experience of this track, but I got to know it with the help of the simulator. I could feel the bumps in the track and curbs, which helped me improve my focus and eventually drive my car into pole position. That goes to show how much the simulator helps."
Visitors can try out the Vesaro and D-BOX simulators for themselves at the SimRacingExpo.
