With this type of technology normally only being accessible to some, D-BOX is proud to have partnered with some of the industry’s best to create sim racing centers open to the public that feature rigs with D-BOX’s haptic technology. This way, sim racers of all levels and ages can improve their lap times and have fun practicing their sport while mingling with other like-minded drivers in their area!

F1 Arcade supplied by Vesaro

With the first centre opening its doors on November 24, F1 Arcade is proud to be opening approximately 30 entertainment centres all around the world!

Offering high quality food, drinks and an all-new motorsport gameplay, F1 Arcade will have 60 custom designed simulators by Vesaro—two of the most prestigious, well-known brands in the industry and around the world— equipped with D-BOX’s G5 haptic technology in their first entertainment center, which will be located in the United Kingdom. After that, they’ll be opening others in different locations to give motorsport lovers everywhere a chance to get behind the wheel of an F1 vehicle and to experience the same sensations that the professionals do!

For Vesaro, it was an easy decision to use D-BOX in their rigs.

"It was obvious for Vesaro to involve D-BOX in this project. Haptic systems are essential when it comes time to recreate the realism of a race, and D-BOX is the best in that field. Our racing simulators will help bring to life the experience of driving a Formula 1 car in a stylish and fun environment, giving more people the opportunity to enjoy and get closer to the world of Formula 1."

Nevil Slade, Chief Executive Officer at Vesaro.

We’ll be sure to keep you up to date on the openings and locations of any future F1 Arcade centres with D-BOX's G5 Haptic technology!
