Virtual reality is still an emerging technology, but the prevalence of more affordable headsets and an increase in the software and experiences that are available has seen it advance quickly in the last two or three years. At VR Simulators, we love the virtual reality experience, and everything it has to offer. We offer a combination of VR headset and TV screens. Whichever setup you choose, you are in total control of the action, and this includes where you look. Wherever you move your head, you will see the action. When you naturally flinch before an accident, this will effect what you see. You can request a triple TV only setup or you can opt for the full experience which incorporates VR headsets. The choice of setup is yours, but if possible, we do recommend the full headset because it enhances the effects.

The direct drive steering wheels and pro pedals are provided by Fanatec, Sim Racing Bay and Sim Tech Racing. All wheels are programmed with 400 degrees of rotation and force feedback of up to 20Nm of torque. They can be programmed for a range of different setups, including an automatic setup for beginners. Even the buttons on the steering wheel can be uniquely programmed to control wipers, which are essential in variable weather conditions, or to turn headlights on and off. Every element of the setup has been designed and developed so that it feels as real as possible – the brake pedal offers feedback on lock up and the accelerator gives feedback on over revving so that it feels like real pedals should. Full traction control can be incorporated, which will help prevent the driver from spinning out and give greater control, even in adverse driving conditions.
We aim to make our Glasgow and Leeds VR experience as lifelike and realistic as possible, and it is the extra touches that really make a difference. As such, we use wind generation software to help enhance the feeling of speed. This extra addition makes us the first 5D VR racing centre in Europe and truly enhances the driving experience in our racing simulators.
