Formula 1 or F1 sport is really exciting, isn’t it? When I was watching “Rush” movie recently, I kept thinking how it feels to train like the F1 professional driver. During the old days, they simulated it with the imagination inside their mind. Like how the legendary James Hunt (played by Chris Hemsworth) did it in the film. Nowadays, the F1 superstar can sit inside the high tech racing simulator cockpit to train themselves in various track locations and conditions. Since the F1 player feel very immersive when they used the simulator, we can say that the racing simulator cockpit is part of the virtual reality system for the training purpose.
