Toni Vilander Tries Endurance Series – Video

The guys at Foracer have uploaded a very cool video, showing real-life race driver Toni Vilander trying rFactor in one of their rigs.

Vilander is one of the most accomplished drivers in sports car racing, having clinched two FIA GT championships and a GTE class win at this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours.

The video shows him in the simulator fully suited up, more info on Foracer’s simulators can be found here.

While you probably don’t have a rig as cool as the Foracer, you can still drive the same mod as Endurance Series is available for download here.

    I wonder what he thought about the mod v.s. real life racing outside of the obvious. Very cool video, thanks for sharing!

    Well, nice video but honestly its showing him drive it while it would be way more interesting what his thoughts about it are.
    What does he think?

      that the AI sucks butt?

        lol the lead car was so slow into the Schumacher esses. rFactor is great but damn the AI sucks balls

    I wonder when it will be possible to have a decent AI apart from the Grand Prix series?

      If you focus on one track / car combo then you can improve them. Only problem then is interaction with other cars, but much less a chance of them standing in the way in corners. But a general adjustment of AIW and AI stats / physics is really hard to get right unfortunately, they often don’t adapt quickly enough to situations, while for us (human πŸ˜‰ ) it’s natural to think ahead.

    Cool πŸ˜€

    Where does the chair gets its data from so it knows how it has to move? Is it interpreted FFB data or is it extra data output from rFactor?

    • pascal lallala

      extra output,

      It uses a 3 axsis g force feed from the sim engine which it converts into movements.

    this is actually the best car in rFactor, I luv to drive it.

    It’s great to get a sort of validation (us simracers) from RL racer of this caliber.

    Every time i see RL driver showing that he can control the car in a sim, is like he’s telling me “hey, what you do makes sense if you can’t do it for real”.
