A CXC Motion Pro II Racing Simulator was part of the grand opening in Agoura Hills, California of World Class Motoring, a unique combination enthusiast gathering place and retail store for automotive accessories, literature and collectibles.
Scores of motor heads brought their rides to WCM’s opening, among them, Jay Leno in his 1925 Doble steam car. It didn’t take long to get him into the MP II.
“Oh, yeah, it’s pretty neat, that thing,” said the popular television star, “a lot of fun. I loved it. You know, it’s very realistic. I’m thinking about getting one for my garage,” referring to the shop and cavernous home for his personal collection of cars. “Of course,” he quipped, “we probably won’t get any work done then.”CXC Simulations is headquartered in Marina del Rey, California and 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 two-year period, the result was the CXC Motion Pro II, about which AutoWeek said, “might just be the best racing simulator in the world.” Powered by a purpose-built rack-mounted simulation computer, the MP II is meticulously assembled from aluminum, laser-cut steel and carbon fiber, the same materials as racecars. It is compatible with all major commercial and online 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. But it is the implementation and interpretation of that software that separates the MP II from other simulators the precise 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.
