  3. The Benefits

Simulators are quickly becoming a valuable tool for drivers; and not just for those at the peak of the motorsport ladder. They are no longer 'just vidoegames' but an accurate representation of real tracks and cars. But why should you get a simulator? How will it help you?


Preparation

For the average driver, it takes 1-2 practice sessions to get back up to speed. Preparation before getting to the track means you have already got past the refresher and your brain can focus on development at track and making the most of the day.

Learning new tracks

With the cost of testing being so high, learning a track for the first time is a costly exercise without a simulator. Using a simulator you can do laps after laps until you are familiar with the track so when you get to the track you know exactly where it goes, the location of bumps and camber and the positioning of the car.

Practice procedures

Make sure you know the exact processes for a race start, pitstop, tyre management, 1 lap qualifying attempts and anything else you can think of. By constantly practicing these procedures they become engraned in your mind and your subconcious can take over allowing you to maximise your on-track performance.

Learn to recover

As you push the car further and further mistakes are bound to creep in. If it is the first time you have experienced the car responding in such a way, your concious mind has to process it. The next time, your subconcious knows how to deal with the situation. Simulation gives your brain time to understand the situation before it happens in real life and could save you a big damage bill!

Fine tune race craft

Practice your overtaking and defending against the AI, other drivers or a coach in a 1-on-1 session. Practice using your rivals to your advantage with realistic slip streaming for qualifying runs. Train your reaction times so when the lights go out, you're the first off the mark!


eSports

2019 started to see a surge in eSports with professional drivers competing in some of the biggest events allowing you to race against the best in the world. With millions of dollars of prize money up for grabs, you also have the opportunity to win money and even make a career out of online racing.

Remote coaching

There is always room for improvement and even top level athletes use coaches to help accelerate them ahead of the competion. With remote coaching you can work with your coach for immediate feedback at a time convenient to you. They can ride onboard, review telemetry and even join you on track from anywhere over the world.

Understand mechanics

Develop an understanding for the impact of setup changes so you can transfer them to the real car. The accuracy of simulation titles coupled with our high-end and professional hardware means you can feel the impact of setup changes and therefore understand what a change in setup can do.

Time efficient

With time of the essence, 2 hours on track can take over a full day in real life. In simulation you can maximise the use of your time by being able to jump in the car at any time for as long as you want without additional planning or travel.
