Featuring Cranfield Aerospace patented g-cueing technology used by F1 teams, the AXSIM formula simulator is widely regarded as the most realistic system commercially available on the market.
The chassis has been adapted from a real F1 monocoque mould with a few tweaks and adjustments to make it more suitable to cater for a wider range of customers. Not only does this provide a highly realistic visual impact, it positions you, the driver in the exact seating position as in a real formula car. With the addition of a seat insert by IndiSeat that is moulded to your own body shape, you'll be able to race in comfort for any length of race!
Only the best components, including the steering wheel and hydraulic pedals, are configured to communicate with the simulation software for a true to life experience like no other simulator outside of the F1 industry.
Offered with 3 different stages of motion; starting with a suspension platform licensed by the FIA, the governing body of motorsport. Secondly, curved rails allow the simulator to move freely to simulate yaw movement and create the feeling of oversteer and lateral g cueing. The third stage adds patented Cranfield Aerospace g-Seat technology to create the sustained sensation of g-force, originally designed for training fighter pilots.
The result? Technology developed to train fighter pilots, previously supplied to F1 teams and professional drivers, delivered to you, ready-to-race on your favourite circuits in the world, at any time.
As Featured In:
Striving for the ultimate in realism is at the heart of everything we do.
Our chassis was originally based on a real F1 car. With a few cosmetic tweaks and alterations to the internals to cater for a wider range of clientele, the same seating position and feeling of being in a real F1 car is brought to reality.
Couple this with our unique motion cueing systems, high-end driving controls and haptic motion system endorsed by the FIA, our F1 simulator provides a realistic experience like no other.
Our Formula Simulator is available in 3 different motion stages, for both immersive home entertainment and professional driver training.
Level 1. Motion
- D-BOX Haptic System
The result of 20 years of innovation and perfection is the world's first and only haptic system licensed by the FIA, the governing body of motorsport. Our Formula Simulator uses four dynamic actuators to accurately replicate the suspension of the racecar - allowing the driver to feel not only the sensation of movement but even the smallest details such as vibrations and cracks in the surface of the racetracks.

Level 2. Full-Motion
- D-BOX Haptic System
- + Cranfield Yaw Platform
The yaw platform is situated at the base of the simulator and is used to simulate lateral movements of the rear end of the vehicle. This is necessary to feel the limits of traction of the rear tyres, which cannot be achieved by solely depending on the visual system. It is only with a good yaw motion system that a driver can consistently drive right at the edge of the tyre grip limits.
Transitioning from one corner to the next is also felt through this module particularly, for example, driving through high speed chicanes.
Level 3. g-Force
- D-BOX Haptic System
- Cranfield Yaw Platform
- + Cranfield g-Seat
In a real car, accelerations are transmitted to the driver through the seat. As the largest surface area that the body is in contact with, reproducing the same sensations in the simulator is highly important. Within the lining of the seat and belts we fit our unique pneumatic pressure modules to provide sustained g-cueing. Multiple airbags expand and contract to provide sustained pressure, simulating the g-forces felt when cornering, braking and accelerating.
The technology has been derived from our wealth of experience within the aerospace industry and is unique to Cranfield.
