Our Formula Simulators are formed from a real F1 mould, this positions the driver in the exact seating position as in a real formula car.
In addition, 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 in 4 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. The third stage adds patented Cranfield G-Seat technology to create the sensation of g-force, originally designed for training fighter pilots. The final stage, the PRO system, replicates very rapid minor movements, such as the compression of the body under extreme g-force.
The result? Technology developed to train fighter pilots, previously supplied to F1 teams and professional drivers. Delivered ready-to-race on your favourite circuits in the world, at any time.
Our Formula Simulator is available in 4 different stages, from immersive home entertainment up to professional driver training.

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.

+ 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.
+ 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.
4. G-Force Pro
+ Cranfield PRO System
The Proportional Rapid Onset (PRO) System allows the seat itself to move independently of the other simulator modules. The seat movements can accurately replicate very minor and fast movements that cannot be produced by the main suspension platforms.
For example, the driver eye height can be moved downwards in the cockpit upon braking which is typically what happens in a real life scenario, particularly in faster formula vehicles where the body is compressed. It can also be used to replicate very quick accelerations whether laterally or longitudinally.
All of the above systems come equipped with the following high-end components to complete your simulator.
Precision Sim Engineering GPX Wheel
Used by professional racing drivers and sim racers around the world, the GPX wheel is engineered for immersion. The GPX features a full-colour LCD display and long-lasting polyurethane grips. Optional dual-clutch paddles with an adjustable bite point, magnetic gear shifters and carbon fibre paddles.
