CXC Simulations Builds Williams Formula 1-Based Racing Simulator for Norwegian Cruise Line
May 9, 2017

Custom simulator using a 2009 Williams FW31 driven by Nico Rosberg will be major attraction of Norwegian Joy ocean cruise ship 

May 9, 2016 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – CXC Simulations, manufacturer of the most advanced racing simulators for personal and professional use, has completed one if it’s most special projects to date – converting a modern Formula 1 car for use as a racing simulator.



The car, a Williams FW31, was driven by Nico Rosberg in the 2009 Formula 1 World Championship. Now, any guest on the Norwegian Joy can get behind the same steering wheel that Rosberg used and compete in a Formula 1 race modeled on custom software developed by CXC Simulations.

Converting the Williams FW31 from rolling chassis to functional racing simulator took eight months and 400 man hours by the CXC Simulations staff. The final product features a fully-functional force-feedback steering wheel, adjustable pedals, surround-sound and 235 diagonal inches of screens comprised of 24.9 million pixels. CXC Simulations worked with directly with Williams Formula 1 engineers throughout the project.

The 3,850-passenger Norwegian Joy cruise ship will home port in Shanghai and Tianjin. In addition to the Formula 1 simulator, the Norwegian Joy will also have four CXC Simulation Motion Pro II simulators which utilize Virtual Reality integration.

“This was an incredible project for CXC Simulations to be a part of, and we are thrilled with the final product,” said Chris Considine, President of CXC Simulations. “Just getting in and out of a modern Formula 1 car is thrilling, but sitting in a real F1 car with history and having the visual and audio experience that this simulator provides is unlike anything else.

“We were really keen to preserve the history of this car. Thanks to the assistance of Williams Formula 1 and their engineers, we were able to make our parts mate perfectly to theirs without any irreversible modifications to the car. If desired, this car could be returned to running condition again!”
