I asked fellow sim racer Ben Konick to stop by on Saturday morning, October 19th to talk about his experience in our VR Motion Labs 3DOF simulator. The informal discussion touches on his experience with Sim Racing and my experience the night before with my first 1 hour race ever with the PCA sim racing series in the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car at Mosport.
After a few years of simulator driving practice, private races and racing against AI competitors it was time to jump in the iRacing Rookie Class and enter a race. Time to start progressing and advancing in the real sim world. My first race was at Lime Rock Park in the Global MX-5 Cup car. I'm running in my 3DOF VR Motion Labs Model M1 racing simulator equipped with a Fanatec Podium direct drive wheel and a Valve Index VR headset. It was fun and brought back all of the feeling
