In partnership with Aston Martin, one of the most prestigious marques in the world of automobiles, CXC simulations will take part in exclusive events during the 2011 Monterey Auto Week.From Thursday, August 18 through Saturday, August 20, the latest Motion Pro II Simulator will be featured at invitation-only events and receptions given at the Aston Martin Private Estate, where guests will be able to “drive” both modern and classic Aston Martin racecars on our CXC simulator and compare lap times with professional drivers on hand. The occasion will mark the North American debut of the sensational Aston Martin V12 Zagato, a modern interpretation of the famous Aston Martin and Zagato collaboration, which has produced some of the most beautiful and sought-after cars in the world. Also on display will be the world famous Aston Martin One-77 – the ultimate Aston Martin car so few will own, that yet fortunately the CXC simulator gives us a chance to “drive”!
CXC Simulations will also make news with the worldwide debut of a revolutionary new add-on for Motion Pro II Racing Simulators: the Combat Flight Pack. Just a year after introducing two prototype, purpose-built flight simulators at the 2010 AirVenture Air Show at Oshkosh, CXC will demonstrate another simulation industry first: a production add-on package that transforms the Motion Pro II racing simulator into a fully-functional flight simulator – in less than two minutes!
The Combat Flight Pack for the MP II Simulator includes a combat flight stick, flight simulation software and games, and advanced flight motion and tactile feedback profiles. That such a high-level flight simulation experience is available to any Motion Pro II simulator owner – and accomplished with such ease – is just the latest example of elegant design engineering from CXC. Flight simulator enthusiasts, we now have your number as well.
On Friday, August 19, the CXC Motion Pro II Simulator and Combat Flight Pack will be on display and available to the general public for demonstration in the Aston Martin tent at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering.
With headquarters in Marina del Rey, California, CXC Simulations was formed specifically to manufacture a professional-level racing simulator that was not only suitable for pro drivers and race teams, but practical for home use. Developed with professional drivers and engineers over a period of two years, the result was the CXC Motion Pro II Simulator, about which AutoWeek said, “might just be the best racing simulator in the world.”
The CXC MP II is carefully assembled from aluminum, laser-cut steel and carbon fiber, the same materials as race cars. Powered by a purpose-built rack-mounted simulation computer, it is compatible with all major commercial and online racing software options and users may choose from a nearly inexhaustible and ever-increasing list of modern or vintage cars to drive, including F1, GT, NASCAR, sports cars, off-road, open-wheel and rally (even race boats) and tracks around the world to race on. Yet the precise implementation and interpretation of that software is what separates the MP II from other simulators; the exact timing, intensity and accuracy of its proprietary full-motion system, tactile transducers and force-feedback controls, together with 5.1 surround sound and a 1080p high-definition video display. The CXC MP II is now also available as a flight simulator. Trusted by professional racers and loved by home simulator users, the CXC Motion Pro II provides the ultimate driving simulator experience.
