Practice makes perfect, but practice in the world of motorsports is an expensive, time-consuming and often futile endeavor as tracks and circuits are frequently unavailable for intensive workouts prior to a major race. That is why so many professional and amateur racers rely on modern technology to train ‘virtually’ for competition. This year many top drivers are taking on the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours on June 14-15 by utilizing Motion Pro II racing simulators designed and built in Los Angeles by CXC Simulations to aid their quest for victory.
Drivers using the Motion Pro II to train for this year’s Le Mans include:
Patrick Dempsey, Patrick Long and Joe Foster
(Porsche 911 RSR, Car #77, GTE-Am Class)
Oliver Jarvis (Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro, Car #3, P1-H Class)
Nick Tandy (Porsche 911 RSR, Car #91, GTE-Pro Class)
Richard Lietz (Porsche 911 RSR, Car #92, GTE-Pro Class)
Stephen Wyatt (Ferrari 458 Italia, Car #81, GTE-Am Class)
Chris Considine, Founder of CXC Simulations, said, “CXC Simulations wishes everyone a safe, competitive Le Mans 24 Hour race. And we know those drivers whom trained on our Motion Pro II are well prepared for the challenging event.”
Built to sync with several different software providers, elements of the Motion Pro II combine to deliver a realistic experience across virtual cars, planes, trucks or helicopters. The system is meticulously engineered so people can feel the slightest detail of a car’s behavior and every idiosyncrasy of individual tracks – including Le Mans!!
