On these driving aids and systems you can rely on

Our simulators are accessible to everyone, no matter if you’ve already had any experience in the world of motor sports or not. With the four difficulty levels, you can tailor your driving experience to your own skill level. While the fourth and highest difficulty level has no driving aids, levels 1 to 3 offer systems such as ABS and traction control. Additionally, you can adjust the brake distribution yourself on the highest difficulty level. The Drag Reduction System (DRS) is available on all levels. To make sure you are optimally prepared for your next drive, we compiled a list of all driving aids and systems available to you.

The anti-lock braking system

Every driver knows the anti-block braking system (ABS). The technical system prevents the wheels from locking up during an emergency stop. In extreme situations with heavy braking, the brake pressure is therefore repeatedly decreased and increased. This makes it easier to maintain steering and directional stability, making the driver less likely to lose control of the vehicle. Furthermore, tire wear is minimized in real racing. If emergency braking is carried out without activating ABS, brake plates can form on the tire treads. The wheels do not run true anymore and need to be replaced. By raising and lowering the brake pressure repeatedly, the ABS prevents the tires from wearing out heavily in just one place and prolongs the tires’ lifetime.

The traction control system

The traction control system (TCS) is a driving aid that ensures that the wheels do not spin, especially during heavy acceleration. When starting with high throttle or starting on low-traction surfaces (ice, snow, or wet cobblestone), TCS reduces drive torque (engine power converted to propulsion on the road through the wheels) through targeted brake and/or engine management intervention. With the help of TCS it is therefore possible to maintain control of the vehicle by preventing it from breaking away to the side when starting or cornering.

Drag reduction system

The drag reduction system (DRS) can be used at all difficulty levels. DRS was developed to reduce air resistance and helps achieve higher speeds. When DRS is activated, the middle segment of the rear wing is raised. This allows air to flow freely through the rear wing. In Formula 1, for instance, race cars are able to reach speeds about 15 km/h (approximately 9 mph) higher with DRS. DRS may only be activated in the designated DRS zones, which are usually long straights. In our simulators, just like in Formula 1, it is activated by pressing a button on the steering wheel.
