PTR works seamlessly with sister company BRD (the simulator manufacturer) to create pioneering simulator solutions tailored to you. Every bit of 20+ years’ experience designing, building and operating our simulators means we can deliver the solution that works for you.
Simulation is as much an art as a science, the aim being to have the driver believe what they are doing is real. Our simulators enable the driver to engage more quickly and more fully, resulting in better racing and a purer experience.
Authenticity is the Key
Reality is therefore the best policy, from the way we generate the motion to the physical environment in which the driver sits. The full F1 car and the SimCell portion of the full car are absolutely authentic in size and shape. When your customers are the F1 teams themselves they have got to be right. Unfortunately we can only sell you the generic models not the actual team versions.
Nonetheless the seating position and seat shape is completely authentic, the only sacrifice to authenticity is that we made it wider – your average F1 driver’s backside is barely humanly possible!
The steering wheel fully interacts with the software and is made in genuine carbon fibre. From beginning to end takes in excess of 50 hours to build. Excessive? – not really, it makes a huge difference to the quality of the experience for the driver once they have had enough practice to manage to look down at the wheel. It just feels right.
The overwhelming feedback we get is that the simulators just feel right.
An overview of the features is in the table below but essentially we offer 2 motion system platforms (V1-500 and V2-500) and 2 body forms – the full replica F1 car (SimGP) and the F1 Monocoque (SimCell).
Our most popular system for race centres and driver training is the V1-500 with SimCell. In terms of performance there is no difference from a driving perspective between the SimCell model and SimGP. The reason customers would go for the SimGP version is for the visual wow factor from a spectator view point or if you happen to be a sponsor whose logo sits on the rear wing.
The V2-500 system has really gone to the ultra-high net worth market where having the latest and greatest matters first. They are always good to know! That aside this is really aimed at the serious driver in the loop training system.
