iRacing laser scanned tracks
Although our Sim Commander 3 motion software is compatible with other software titles, to feel the benefit of the TrackDay’s 250 motion updates per second we always recommend purchasing our simulator pre-installed with iRacing and here’s why:
The goal of the iRacing experience is simple: to make each lap driven in simulation as valid as a lap driven on the real-world race circuit.
To achieve this exceptionally high level of realism, iRacing uses its pioneering, proprietary application of three-dimensional laser-scanning technology to create two key features.
They visit every track added to the iRacing service to laser scan and take literally thousands of photos.
iRacing replicates the precise physical features of each track’s racing surface. Their laser-scanning technology produces a mathematical ‘bump map’ of the track’s camber, cracks, curbs, undulations and patches.
Combine this mathematically-precise surface mapping with iRacing hyper-accurate sight-pictures and proprietary mapping software and you have a powerful tool that allows even drivers at the highest levels of professional motorsport to use virtual seat time to hone their skills and improve their real-world performance.
