Virtual Reality – From the Driver’s Seat
June 7, 2016

We recently announced the Virtual Reality Integration with Oculus Rift in our Motion Pro II. There is not better way to feel like you are on the track than the Motion Pro II, and with the optics provided by Oculus Rift, there is no better way to feel like you are in the car than with the Virtual Reality Integration.


So we asked some of the professional racers who sampled the Virtual Reality Integration for their thoughts on how it changes the racing experience.


“Being completely immersed in the Motion Pro II through the Virtual Reality platform with Oculus Rift is an incredible experience in itself. This combination makes one feel as if he or she is truly in the race vehicle; until now, that feeling has never been available. Wearing the Oculus Rift is seamless, and in a sense, it feels just like you would be wearing your actual racing helmet. Driving the Motion Pro in this Virtual Reality platform makes you feel all of the subtleties that you feel when you are in the race car, which include: perspective of vision and dynamic head movement. Exiting the pitlane for the first time in this setting instinctively makes you want to close your helmet visor and get to business.” – Michael Lewis, Pirelli World Challenge race winner


“No doubt, there is definitely increased realism with the VR headset. Adding it to the Motion Pro II really bridges the gap between what can be experienced from the drivers seat to what you can experience on the simulator.  As this technology continues to improve it will provide an even greater sense of actually being in a race.” – Townsend Bell, Nine-time Indy 500 starter, 2014 14 Hours of Daytona winner, 2015 IMSA GT-Daytona champion



“Using the virtual reality on the simulator makes you completely immersed in the racing experience. When I used it for the first time I expected to be completely focused on the visuals, but the VR actually helped me be much more in tune with the movements and reactions of the car. It elevates the feedback that the car provides and gets rid of any disconnect that you would have from the feeling of being in the race car.” – Patrick Long, three-time ALMS GT driver’s champion, class winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Rolex 24 At Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring and Petit Le Mans
