The perfect simracing location



Last week I have been at the Hockenheim ring to present two of our RennSport Cockpits with a new racing simulation (not from EA or MS) in the pit which was used by Sebastian Vettel at the last F1 GP in (edit:) 2010.

The track was used for testing the new Porsche Cup cars for both the Carrera and the Supercup so we had the pleasure to be surrounded by the fastest 911s.

At this point I cannot tell you anything more about the new racing simulation other that it looked great and the Porsche Cup drivers had a lot fun driving with it. The lap times were very similar.

Is there any chance Fanatec could make a more affordable cockpit like the GT Omega or the Obutto Ozone?

There is a good chance that

There is a good chance that we will do that in the future.

Hopefully. I want to get a good cockpit like those. Most other cockpits are missing the keyboard tray and speaker mounts. The only thing missing from the GT Omega and Obutto cockpits is the front speaker mounts.

The game looks a lot like Project Cars.

The upper left corner of the screen you can see see the replay/resume buttons, which looks just like pCars. It already looks amazing, especially when running at full specs in DX11.

Hey Thomas, the game looks

Hey Thomas, the game looks amazing. Had the privilege of seeing some of closed beta, and the tag line is great too "Real Cars. Real Tracks.
Real Motorsports." . I think the Porsche wheels will compliment the game nicely. By any chance are you supplying the rigs for the official game announcement?

Look at the menu again. Then

Look at the menu again. Then look at their facebook page. "Porsche?" Coincidence, I think not.

Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.

Trust Thomas, it is NOT

Trust Thomas, it is NOT pcars. The menus may be similar, but the game, the "cars" are different.

One eagle-eyed guy at virtualr.net spotted something that I missed.. the rims look exactly like the BMW version (what I thought they were) but have Porsche badges on them. So, Thomas, with you having connections with Audi, BMW and Porsche are you going to be offering differently branded GT rims?

Of course we will!

Of course we will!

the real question is whether

the real question is whether or not we'll get a GT wheel of any sort for the CSRE. I know there's a market for it because, well, I'm part of it!

Personally I want to see an F1 rim!
