Inside the £100,000 Axsim Formula Simulator that helps F1 drivers train from home

For Formula 1 fans, this may be the best way to see what it’s like to drive at the highest level.

The British company has created a simulator using jet fighter technology to help create the G-Force feel experienced by Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen and George Russell.

The simulator is sure to give users a serious upper body workout, especially when it comes to the neck muscles, but all interested fans will have to shell out £100,000 ($135,450) to try out the whole system for themselves.

A simplified version called GFQ Simulator costs £16,400 ($22,234).

The F1-style part of the kit was made by Axsim, a sub-brand of Cranfield Simulation, itself a subsidiary of UK-based Cranfield Aerospace Solutions.

WHAT ARE THE PRICES FOR THE DIFFERENT MODELS OF THE AXSIM FORMULA TRAINER?

The formula simulator is available in three different modes, both for home entertainment and professional driver training.

1. Movement: £39,900 ($53,980)

2. Full-Motion: £59,900 ($81,038)

3. Full-Motion + G-Force: £99,900 ($135,450)

“Ready to Race” prices include a 12-month warranty, initial training and setup.

Over the past 30 years, the firm has delivered 130 simulation systems to 21 different military forces, with a focus on aircraft including the F-16, F-18, Tornado and Eurofighter Typhoon.

The good news for gamers is that the simulator allows you to race against AI racers as well as other Axsim owners online, but you can’t connect it to an Xbox or PlayStation.

Axsim called it “as close to real as possible” and also offers a range of car models and race tracks, including Silverstone and Spa, for owners to delve into.

The company even supplied simulators for Formula 1, Nascar and world endurance racing teams.

“Our Formula Simulators are modeled after real Formula One, so the driver is in the same position as in a real Formula car,” the company adds on its website.

“In addition, only the best components, including the steering wheel and hydraulic pedals, are configured to interact with the simulation software, providing a realistic experience like no other simulator outside of the F1 industry.”

One of the main components of the stimulator is the motion signaling G-seat, which is molded according to the user’s physique and physique.

It uses electric actuators to reproduce the changes in eye height and thrust that occurs with vertical acceleration, as well as the jump that occurs when moving forward and backward.

Meanwhile, the air bags in the seat belts inflate, simulating an overload.

The steering wheel features a full-color LCD display and durable polyurethane grips, as well as dual-clutch paddles with adjustable bite point and magnetic shift paddles.

“Multiple airbags expand and compress to provide constant pressure, simulating the g-force felt during cornering, braking and accelerating,” Aksim said.

“This technology is based on our rich experience in the aerospace industry.”

The system also includes hydraulic pedals, which are considered the best simulator pedals.
