F1 2012 Melbourne

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

GamersCockpit worked with Renault at the Melbourne F1 supplying 4 x WORKS model simulators for their outdoor display.

Visitors to the stand got to race a Megane RS250 around the Albert Park track in a fastest lap challenge. It proved to be very, very popular and we had our hands full with big crowds every day.

Feedback from Renault was extremely positive with a large increase in visitors to the 2012 stand V 2011. It was alot of hard work but worth the effort.

HRT Drive Days

Friday, April 13th, 2012

GamersCockpit continues to provide entertainment for attendees of HRT’s Drive Days. For 2012 we will have simulators the HRT days in WA, SA, QLD, NSW ans VIC. WORKS model cockpits will be setup running 2011 HRT Supercars so attendees could take a virtual lap before their actual Hot Lap. 

Pictured here is Will Davison (2010)getting in some early morning warm up laps of Eastern Creek. He was very fast and set some very good times, even preferring to use the stick rather than paddle change.

With a constant flow of drive day attendees the cockpits got a big work out and were enjoyed by all. Having the 2010 livery and the actual circuit was very popular.

A big thanks to Georgia from HRT for getting us involved with the days and we hope we can do more events with HRT in the future. A head to head challenge V the HRT boys would be great fun.

Fanatec Products

Friday, April 30th, 2010

We have been unable to have any of our stock orders fulfilled by FANATEC and we are no longer in regular contact with Thomas their CEO. So the short term outlook is we will not be able to supply any FANATEC products.

We will continue to try and get stock as the product is good and with the OZ dollar high, pricing is as good as it can be.

Sorry to disappoint. We have put in lots of effort to secure stock but had no success.

FANATEC Product Update

Monday, December 14th, 2009

Unfortunately we still do not have an ETA on the Fanatec product lines we have on order. As soon as we have advice from Thomas or his team at Fanatec we will advise is our news area.

Hang in there if you can!

FANATEC product availability update.

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

We have received advice from FANATEC that they are still behind in their production schedule. This means our order for lines such as 911 Turbo S wheel, 911 GT3 RS wheel, ClubSport pedals, RennSport wheel stand and more will not be supplied in the short term.

Production in China is taking place now and we will have an update on availability in 2-3 weeks.

Sorry for the delay but this is really out of our hands. Our order has not been cancelled and we still plan to get the goods. Fanatec make fantastic products so we are trying our best to get our stock as quickly as possible.

RennSport Wheel Stand Update

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

We have received advice from Thomas at FANATEC that production of the RennSport wheel stand is still behind schedule. This means that the stock order we have with FANATEC for the wheels stands (and other product lines) is not able to be supplied in the short term.

Our order for the stands will not be cancelled and we still plan to bring the stand in from China for sale via our GamersCockpit store. We will be receiving an update from Fanatec in 2-3 weeks as production is taking place now. However with the time it takes to sea freight goods from China we do not expect to receive any stock this year.

We apologise to those of you who we supplied with a previous stock ETA which has now proved to be incorrect.

When our stock is in transit we will make the stand available for sale through our store. Orders can then be placed and goods secured by paying a 25% deposit with the balance paid prior to despatch to you.

Once again we are sorry for the delay and will provide more updates as they come through.

New Logitech G27 Racing Wheel

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

Logitech have released a new high end racing wheel named the G27. The G27 supersedes the highly successful G25 which was released in 06.

Here is a very quick overview of differences from G25:

  • Buttons on wheel face: G25 has two, G27 has six
  • Force feedback transmission: G25 features straight-cut (spur) gears, G27 features diagonal-cut (helical) gears
  • Pedals: G27 features taller standoffs for clutch and brake pedals, as well as horizontal adjustability, making customizability and heel-toe downshifting easier
  • Shifter: G27 features stiffer centering spring and more positive gear engagement feeling, improving the overall feel of the shifter.
  • RPM/Shift Indicator LEDs: G27 features 10 LEDs that can be used by game developers to indicate RPM, redline, or to indicate the user should shift gears.

More information can be found within our online store under Racing Wheels http://www.gamerscockpit.com.au/store/index.php/steering-wheel-pedals/logitech-g27-racing-wheel/p_39.html

The highly respected SimHQ have done a very thourough review of the G27 http://www.simhq.com/_technology2/technology_153a.html

GamersCockpit are expecting our stock of the G27 from October 23. The price is $599 and you can place your pre-order with us now.

All G27 wheels bought from GamersCockpit will be shipped with:

  •  a trial copy of rFactor that supports the new RPM/shift indicator LED
  • a GamersCockpit 1 page tuning summary to help you configure the wheel settings
  • a $50 discount towards the purchase of a GamersCockpit “WORKS” or “STRIPPER” race rig

The WORKS - New Name for existing model

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

Due to the introduction of our new model GamersCockpit called the STRIPPER we have now called our existing model the WORKS.

The STRIPPER ($659.95) sits below the WORKS in the model range and now gives you more choice when working out the best racing simulation setup for your situation.

Until now we only had one model so there was no real need for a specific model name - it was just known as the GamersCockpit. It has always been our plan to introduce new models and now that we have done that giving them model names stops confusion about which model we are referring to.

We have been selling the WORKS for over 4 years now and it has been very successful. It is a great product with a full range of accessories that provides you with the complete simulation solution + it really looks the business!. We knew however that there was a demand for a cockpit at a lower price point that still offered high quality but with out some of the extras. We have been working on such a model for some time now and it is now here ready for sale.

The STRIPPER -just like a real street stripper it features just the core components you need for a high performance race rig and none of the fancy bits that are nice but don’t make you go any faster.

While the WORKS is like you are a fully sponsored factory pilot with every imaginable option available to you. So you get the complete package while also looking the goods.

See product details in our online store.

New Model GamersCockpit - The STRIPPER

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

GamersCockpit have added a brand new model race rig called the STRIPPER. It will be availble for delivery from July 12, 2009. Priced from $659.95 orders can be placed now. See full details listed in our web store.

Just like a real street stripper it  features just the core components you need for a high performance race rig and none of the fancy bits that are nice but don’t make you go any faster.

So you get:

  • High quality race seat with adjustable back rest position (available in black, blk/red, blk/grey) 
  • Steering wheel mounting platform. Features height and reach adjustment + pre-drilled holes for mounting G25 and Porsche 911 wheel with screws.
  • Pedal plate for pedal mounting. Features rake and reach adjustment +  laser cut slots for mounting G25 and Porsche 911 pedals with screws.
  • Shifter mounting bracket (can be mounted LHS+RHS) for G25 shifter. Features pre-drilled holes for mounting with screws.

This rig is highly adjustable so you can find the optimum setup. An optional seat rail slider can be added for quicker seat adjusment (good for families).

Another key design element is ensuring clear access to your pedals. With the leading wheels on the market having 3 pedal systems (clutch/brake/throttle) you need unobscured access to your pedals, particularly for heel-toe down changing. Some competitor cockpits have support structures that go between your legs (to support the wheel) which makes access to the brake and throttle with your right foot less than ideal. 

Your cockpit chassis can be powdercoated in the colour of your choice - black, yellow, silver, super white, orange, red, blue are popular choices. The std seat is also available in black, blk/red, blk/grey. Should you wish to buy the Stripper chassis but with a different seat please go to FRAMES+ACCESSORIES and then to RACING SEATS within our store. The STRIPPER chassis in Super White with the new fixed back RPM seat in red is a killer (+ a Porsche 911 Turbo wheel fitted)!

Rubber adhesive pads are supplied to stick to the bottom of the frame for setting your race cockpit on a hard floor surface.

A sound system can be fitted to the frame. A sub-woofer fits under the seat and satellite speakers can be placed either side of the wheel. 2 x pre-drilled holes are on the wheel platform to secure the satellites using their std foot or using the GamersCockpit option speakers sleeves. The logitech X230 2.1 system is what we recommend - it fits the rig perfectly and the sound is the business.

Our frame is Aiusralian made using high quality materials and best practises production techniques. The Stripper comes with a 12 month warranty - and we carry a complete stock of replacement parts (no waiting on stuff from overseas).

The stripper is the ideal way to experience the thrill of racing simulation (PC/PS3/Xbox360) at an affodable price point.

The STRIPPER sits below our existing model cockpit which we have now named the WORKS.

NOTE: The rough pictures listed are of our prototype. Small changes (hole position + better finish) will occur with production stock. Stock will be available from 12/07/09. New better quality pictures to follow soon.

    Bucton Motor Sport kindly offered hot laps around Oran Park Raceway to a lucky few (including yours truly) in the race Commodore.

    My laps were towards the end of the day and the tyres were not in great condition. So when Scott gave it a bit extra exiting turn one the Commodore got very sideways and span off into the infield! Wearing an open helmet meant I then got a face full of dust - I probably should have closed my eyes, but it was very entertaining.

    Scott was at it all day and showed super human levels of endurance.

    We had a Gamers Cockpit set up in the pit garage (of course)…let’s just say it was tested very thoroughly.

    Thanks to Bucton Motor Sport and Gulf Western Oils for a great experience.

    Colin McRae drives the Gamers Cockpit simulator in Perth!

    Thursday, December 22nd, 2005

    While in Perth driving in the Telstra Rally Australia, Colin McRae dropped by our friends at AutoWholesale and drove one of the several instore Gamer’s Cockpits.

    Colin is the second most successful World Rally Championship driver of all time (in the currency of individual rally wins), second only to Carlos Sainz (source: Wikipedia).

    Now driving for Skoda, Colin had to retire from the challenging Perth Rally with mechanical trouble.

    All of us here at Gamers Cockpit are proud to know that Colin has driven our simulator. The look of concentration on his face says it all.

    Good Gear Guide review our cockpit - 4.5 stars!

    Thursday, October 27th, 2005

    The latest Good Gear Guide has reviewed the Gamers Cockpit and given it 4.5 stars out of 5!

    “The Gamers Cockpit is an impressive, purpose-built driving simulator unit that is perfect for those who absolutely love racing games.”

    “In the Gamers Cockpit it actually feels like you are sitting inside a car. Apart from the obvious lack of movement, everything else is spot on, including the sound, the setup and the steering wheel and pedals.”

    “Overall, the Cockpit is one of the most impressive products we’ve had to review. If you have money, space and a lot of spare time, we can’t think of anything better to own.”

    Gran Turismo 4™ vs. Real life!

    Friday, September 30th, 2005

    Motor magazine takes a Nissan 350Z around the Nôrburgring to compare real life with Gran Turismo 4™

    “Another experienced ‘Ring bloke rode shotgun with me and seemed impressed given my lack of experience. He reckoned I’d saved between 25 and 30 laps practice by learning the track on the game.”

    “A Logitech Driving Force Pro steering wheel is a must-have accessory with a Playstation 2…”

    “Tracks have been measured to tolerances of around five centimetres, and their appearance is close to video-real.”

    “The hill at Flugplutz is taken flat-out in fifth at nearly 200km/h. The car doesn’t fly like it does in GT4, just goes very light on it’s feet. The next sweepers are flat-out after a dab on the brakes, just like they are in the game.”

    And a quote from Dirk Schoysman (an 11,000 lap Nôrburgring legend): “I’ve done one lap, with a hand controller. I thought it was excellent, a very good way to learn your lines.”

    ‘Pedal to the Metal’ - full page review

    Wednesday, August 17th, 2005

    “The Gamers Cockpit literally puts you in the driver’s seat
    Stephen Fenech has written a full page article for the Daily Telegraph’s ‘Connect’ lift-out.

    It is the next best thing to being in a real car.

    “…the Gamers Cockpit guarantees edge-of-your-seat racing.

    “A high-quality Monza sports seat gives the whole thing a genuine driving feel and the framing has a custom-designed platform for the steering wheel and pedals; you think you’re sitting in a real car.

    “…speakers fitted onto poles on either side of the seat means the Gamers Cockpit sounds every bit as real as it drives.

    “The Gamers Cockpit can also be used for playing non-racing games, simply by plugging the the regular controller. The same level of surround sound and heightened game play can still be achieved.

    “You won’t be playing a driving game, you’ll be driving”
