Just checking in and making an initial post in this section for all things simulator (and racing, of course). Myself and Mike Courtney will be monitoring this E30 Forum so we can pass on to you things we’ve learned over the last 12 years of using simulators to train drivers. We might even have a few posts from Scott Pruett in here from time to time, too!
I will attempt to limit my comments and answering your questions around the topic of simulators. But the topic crosses over into any type of basic hand-eye coordination sport and the resulting training necessary to improve performance. Understanding the human mind, how it works and how it manages to pilot a race car at 150 mph - or fly an F19 at 500 mph and take care of all the detailed multi-tasking that both require, is a key to maximizing your training. You will only perform as well as you have trained. That is almost a law of the universe!
More on all of this as we dive into the world of race car simulators and how they can be used effectively to improve driver performance during the race!
This will be fun!
