NASCAR champion, Jeff Gordon recently presented his driving impressions of the Chevy racing simulator. He visited the simulator facility with Alex Bowman and the Hendrick Motorsports team to see how far Driver-in-the-Loop (DIL) technology is pushing the limits for NASCAR.
The video is quite entertaining and informative - Jeff and Alex take turns in the simulator, share their thoughts regarding the overall realism, and describe working with their race engineers in the simulator lab to prepare for competiion weekends.
The exciting part for us here at Ansible Motion is to see such candid descriptions and public domain footage of one of our DIL simulators in action, assisting Chevrolet as they develop their race-winning vehicles.
