Image Space Incorporated might have released rFactor 2 but the title’s successor is still very popular – Not just with the average sim racer but with racing professionals as well.
Below are two videos showing real life aces using rFactor to train and keep their reflexes sharp. The first shows MotoGP ace Casey Stoner who uses rFactor to prepare for his V8 Supercar outings later this year.
While Stoner uses a rather basic Logitech G27 setup that many of you will have at home, other race drivers have a more sophisticated setup to play with.
The second video shows Audi works driver Benoit Treluyer, reigning Le Mans 24 Hours & World Endurance Champion, and the amazing motion simulator he has set up ins his garage.
Footage of his simulator starts around the 1:52 minute mark as Benoit explains how he uses the sim mainly to get accustomed to new tracks and learn his marks, something we have often heard from race drivers using sims.
