Intro to Sim Racing

A comprehensive 1.5-hour course that introduces beginners to sim racing with hands-on rig time and expert coaching, tailored for discovering your racing style. ($90 for 90 minutes)

The journey of sim racing from its inception in the 1980s and 1990s showcases a relentless pursuit of realism, starting from simple arcade setups to the introduction of games like Indy500 that brought realistic physics and telemetry to players' fingertips. This evolution marked the birth of true sim racing, laying the groundwork for today's immersive experiences that incorporate 3D imaging, cutting-edge graphics, and virtual reality. Each advancement has been a leap towards simulating the intricate thrill of racing, inviting enthusiasts to experience the unparalleled precision and excitement of driving without leaving their homes.

Our simulators at Apex Racing Lab offer a deeply authentic racing experience. They're designed to simulate real car handling, including the nuances of traction loss and optimal turn entry and exit techniques, without compromising speed. Even professional racers use our simulators to familiarize themselves with tracks and practice avoiding mishaps, experiencing the physical sensations of g-forces. Our rigs don't just focus on speed—they deliver a comprehensive, realistic racing experience that prepares you for any challenge on the track.

Sim racing at Apex Racing Lab transcends traditional video gaming by offering an immersive, track-like experience with our state-of-the-art simulator rigs.
