Playseat’s F1 Red Bull Racing Simulator
16 March 2011 - Everyone knows that driving simulators, no matter how good they are, are just that: simulators. They don't quite get the experience nailed, and they won't make you the next Sebastien Vettel. Still, Red Bull and Playseats have teamed up to make your experience that much closer to Vettel's with the release of this Red Bull racing simulator.
The idea is to try to replicate the feel of driving an F1 car, specifically Red Bull’s new RB7. The seat is in the same position, relative to the steering wheel and pedals, that Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber will find themselves in in just a few weeks’ time in Australia. The best news is that Playseats makes the set up for a variety of systems, meaning you can have one for Forza, Gran Turismo 5 and F1 2010, should you have the funds and the desire.
Presumably you’d want to hook the simulator up to F1 2010 (any system), but it’ll work with any racing game, such as the upcoming Shift 2: Unleashed. The funds are the big issue here. Playseats charges $1,300 for the system on sale. Regular price is $1,400, not to mention the cost of a TV to make this worth while. Looks like it's good, old-fashioned joysticks for us, then.
