Vesaro and DBOX partner for the Sim Expo

Teaming up with Laurens Vanthoor, Belgian Audi Club Team WRT champion winner of the 24 hours of Spa 2014, D-BOX and Vesaro changed this professional driver’s training experience. They increased his performance by creating the most immersive and true to life virtual training environment.

Racing simulation systems are constantly enhanced with more precise technologies such as; better visuals, featuring more pixels and larger screens, clearer sound by adding channels and a larger frequency response scope, and force feedback steering systems etc. The Vesaro driving simulator is now combining a range of technologies to further enhance the expected immersive experience you need. Precise motion and vibration is the next level of experience you must get to maintain a competitive edge. D-BOX Technology can now further convince your brain that you’re driving simulation experience is closer to reality by stimulating your kinesthetic sense. These high tech actuators will generate physical cues that are critical in car driving simulation.

Feeling is Believing.

For over 10 years D-BOX has been working with the entertainment and simulation industries providing motion solutions to create a realistic experience for multiple audiences, making them part of the action. Today, pilots like Laurens Vanthoor, leverage D-BOX’s motion through Vesaro’s simulators all around the world. Since we can generate highly precise and accurately tuned movements and vibrations we ensure the most efficient driving simulation training system ever.

“Obviously motorsport is expensive and we can’t train every day like football players for example… The only way we can train and keep sharp is with the use of simulators. Learning new tracks, training to stay focussed and even develop techniques are some of the benefits we can get from simulation training. Online racing is also getting more and more competitive and simulation training proves a valuable way to keep sharp against other racing drivers.” Laurens Vanthoor says.

Track personality and conditions as well as race car handling are essential parts to improve pilot’s preparedness. Getting ready for a championship and having the opportunity to virtually rehearse a track in any weather condition is a new key competitive advantage. The total immersive experience in training translates into fractions of second enhancements and improvements that will help drivers to get closer to the pole position.

“I trained using the D-BOX powered Vesaro Simulator just before our Blancpain Sprint Series race at Brands Hatch this year. This was a track which I didn’t know, but I was able to learn the track, feel the bumps and the curbs, increase my focus and much more. Putting my car in the pole position a day later explains how much it helped me…” Laurens Vanthoor adds.

The solution developed by D-BOX and Vesaro is already helping the best drivers to improve their performances and augment their driving skills. Offering new combinations of driving simulation solutions, we are aiming to make the best training experience through scalable and adaptable modules. Find the Vesaro Simulator at SimRacing Expo at Nurburgring 1000 on September 20-21, come and meet us and test a radically new way to train. Feel for yourself how easily this kind of solution can become a part of your training experience to augment your skills, and improve your performances.

Training Session with Laurens Vanthoor and the WRT Audi racing team – Brands Hatch 2014 Blancpain GT Series

Does simulation training make a difference? Audi WRT driver Laurens Vanthoor’s first time on the full circuit at Brands Hatch for the Blancpain GT Series race, after spending only 1 hour training on a Vesaro motion simulator setup in the pit garage, resulted in him setting the fastest time in qualifying… P1

We work hard to create machines that can make a difference to racing drivers and to see such positive and direct results is truly inspiring.

Lauren trains using a 4 actuator Vesaro motion system using Lazer scanned tracks recreated by the motion system to within 4mm accuracy.

Vesaro to sponser GT World Championship driver Laurens Vanthoor

Vesaro is very exciting to start working with Laurens with whom we will be working closely in fine tuning the Vesaro racing simulator range. Vesaro will be sponsoring Laurens in his career where he will be training on a Full motion Vesaro simulator. Using Lazer scanned tracks re-creating the surface detail to within 4mm accuracy will enable Laurens to learn circuits in advance giving him the edge when it comes to race day.
