There’s no doubt that we all revel in throwing banana peels on “Mario Kart.” The rush of an enemy slipping on the peel or any other obstacle is half the joy of the game. There’s a time and place for that kind of racing and a more realistic take. No, not “Need for Speed.” Think bigger. If you’ve ever dreamed of being a Formula 1 driver and games just don’t cut it, the Cranfield F1 Simulator takes it to the next level. It’s not a game, but a simulator so you really get that legit experience one step below actually driving.
Cranfield Simulation is a department within Cranfield Aerospace Solutions Limited. They are a well known global supplier of sustained g-cueing products to the world’s military simulators. They have been in the industry for over 30 years and operated for aircrafts such as Typhoon, Tornado, F-18, F-16, and others. With that much experience, the team has also set their sights in the motorsport industry. Their tech has been adopted by F1, F2, GT, LMP, and NASCAR teams as well as road car manufacturers.
Smart software and a realistic tactile experience
The Cranfield F1 Simulator is as legit as it gets. Choose from Static, Full Motion, or Full Motion + G-Force options. All options include a composite single seater chassis that’s formed from a real F1 mould. You’ll be in the exact seating position as an actual F1 driver. Driving components, like the steering wheel and pedals, are also configured to work with the simulation software. The Precision Sim Engineering LM-Pro steering wheel and adjustable pedal set with hydraulic brake caliper will give you an experience close to the real thing. Additional features include a VR headset with 55″ HD screen, built-in high specification PC, and pre-installed and configured Assetto Corsa.
The driving experience the simulator gives you is like no other. The simulator features Cranfield’s highly accurate and almost instantaneous g-cueing systems. It also has a modular design, which allows it to be upgraded at any time. There’s a constantly growing library of real world vehicles and circuits included in the software as well. You can choose a preset package for a simple and ready-to-use system or build your own. Buy Here
