The Lionheart Racing Series and SimXperience today announced a groundbreaking partnership between the premier open-wheel league in sim racing, and the leader in online racing software and hardware.
“Many of our drivers already utilize SimXperience products, so it was a natural fit for us to reach out,” Lionheart founder Jorge Anzaldo said. “And then SimXperience answered the call and went above and beyond.”
SimXperience will award the champion of the Lionheart IndyCar Series presented by First Medical Equipment a new AccuForce Pro V2 Steering Simulation System.
Lauded for its reliability and accuracy, the AccuForce Pro V2 is the premier direct-drive sim wheel. Known for its plug-and-play ability and utilization of the Sim Commander 4 software for realism, the wheel gives drivers the feel of being in a real racecar. The AccuForce Pro V2 provides up to 13Nm of torque, and has been tested for use and celebrated for its durability. The AccuForce Pro V2 can sustain up to 30 minutes of continuous torque at 13Nm, with just a two-degree bump in operating temperature and zero percent torque loss due to heat fade.
“The AccuForce Pro V2 has long been the wheel of choice for our drivers,” Anzaldo said. “This partnership just lets the rest of the sim racing world know how much we love the product, and how good it has made our drivers. If you want to win in Lionheart, SimXperience products are a must.”
SimXperience’s SimVibe software will also play a big role in awards for the 2019 season, with 10 copies of the revolutionary software set to be handed out in a yet-to-be-determined fashion throughout both the Lionheart IndyCar Series and Lionheart Retro Series seasons.
SimVibe is designed to work hand-in-hand with both the AccuForce steering system, as well as third-party sim enhancement systems, like Lionheart partner The Guitammer Company ButtKicker Gamer2 devices, to deliver the ultimate in immersive simulation.
SimXperience will be featured as the primary sponsor of three Lionheart events in 2019, including Retro races at Motegi and Watkins Glen, as well as the championship finale of the Lionheart IndyCar Series presented by First Medical Equipment at Auto Club Speedway.
SimXperience will also be the official presenting sponsor of the all-new Lionheart IndyCar and Retro Series Road Championship, going to the highest scoring driver on road courses in the both Series in 2019.
Fans of the Lionheart series will receive 5 percent off the purchase of the SimVibe software by using the code SimXLion at checkout on the SimXperience website, www.SimXperience.com.
