IMSA Champion Michael Lewis Prepares with CXC Simulations
October 17, 2019

Hyundai factory driver Michael Lewis captured the 2019 IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge championship in the TCR class, driving a Hyundai Veloster N TCR with co-driver Mark Wilkins.

Michael is a friend of CXC Simulations, serving as one of our lead development drivers that dials in our Motion Pro II simulators for clients. Even before he became an IMSA champion this season he was a hugely experienced and successful driver, but more than that, he’s a hugely technical driver that brings a wealth of engineering and technical feedback to the teams he drives for and the engineers he works with.

So, it’s a no-brainer that CXC Simulations uses Michael all the time to improve our simulators. But, Michael also uses the CXC Simulations Motion Pro II to prepare for his own racing. As you will see in the video here from Motor Trend’s series, Pole Position: Next Level part of Michael’s pre-race preparation includes logging time in the Pro Training Room at Base51 in Los Angeles, California.

The Pro Training Room at Base51 uses a Motion Pro II as well as the CXC Simulations Coaching Station, allowing Michael to review his data in exactly the same way as he does when racing is Hyundai Veloster N TCR.

“It’s really good for me to get some laps on those sims because it really lets me learn the track and get a sense of what I’m going to be experiencing on the race weekend,” says Lewis. “It’s so direct that you feel like you are in the real car – you feel all the bumps and all the nuances. And then when you turn a corner, the actual seat makes you feel like you are taking some G’s.”
