Can a racecar be green? Possibly, now that there“s a new kid on the block in the world of racecars. Called the Delta Wing, it“s a revolutionary racing car with a dramatic shape designed to be more efficient.

Chief designer Ben Bowlby envisioned a racecar designed to „halve the aerodynamic drag, halve the power, halve the mass, fuel consumption, tire consumption and still achieve the performance of our competitors.“ In his words, for racing, „the future is about efficiency.“

Dan Gurney“s All American Racers took on the development of Bowlby“s design with efficiency at the forefront, which necessitated many hand-built parts to make sure this vehicle also met all official racing requirements. Featuring a 1.6 liter, 4-cylinder Nissan engine, the Delta Wing racing car has an ultra-tapered front end with just four-inch wide tires and flares out to a regulation racecar width back end.

CXC Simulations took part in the development process of this unique racecar: CXC built the Virtual Delta Wing Race Car – a racing simulator made to feel like the real Delta Wing – and created the virtual Le Mans track for the Delta Wing development team. www.cxcsimulations.com then also provided All American Racers with one full-motion racing simulator during the development of the Delta Wing. Working with CXC“s extremely realistic simulator is an efficient way to get the feel for the track before hitting the rubber on the pavement – which it did last month.

Alex Gurney: „CXC went way out of their way to provide a fantastic simulator experience for all of us involved in the Delta Wing project. With a car so out of the mainstream, it was a huge help that the simulator gave us a feel for a lot of the „unknowns“ before we actually hit the track. I turned countless laps at the „virtual“ Le Mans, and if the sim didn“t have to go home, I would probably still be sitting in there turning laps, smiling all the way.“

Reminiscent of the Batmobile with its fin and cool carbon fiber exterior, the Delta Wing was launched on March 1, 2012 at Buttonwillow Raceway in California. Alex Gurney, the two-time Grand Am racing Champion, had the honor of taking the Delta Wing around its first curves on the racetrack. The track test proved – yes, it does turn!

On to big things, the Delta Wing is now handled by Highcroft Racing and will have its debut race at the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans on 16-17th June. As of now, two racecar drivers have been confirmed for Le Mans: Marino Franchitti and Nissan“s reigning FIA GT1 World Champion Michael Krumm. Due to previous racing commitments, Alex Gurney will not be able to take part at Le Mans. It has the 56th exhibition only spot, yet the Delta Wing“s performance is very relevant. www.cxcsimulations.com was thrilled to be involved with the innovative racecar“s development and wishes Le Mans drivers the best of luck come this summer!

Headquartered in Marina del Rey, California, CXC Simulations was formed specifically to manufacture a professional-level racing simulator that was not only suitable for pro drivers and race teams, but practical for home use. Developed with professional drivers and engineers over a period of two years, the result was the CXC Motion Pro II Simulator, about which AutoWeek said, „might just be the best racing simulator in the world.“

The CXC MP II is carefully assembled from aluminum, laser-cut steel and carbon fiber, the same materials as race cars. Powered by a purpose-built rack-mounted simulation computer, it is compatible with all major commercial and online racing software options and users may choose from a nearly inexhaustible and ever-increasing list of modern or vintage cars to drive, including F1, GT, NASCAR, sports cars, off-road, open-wheel and rally (even race boats) and tracks around the world to race on.

Yet the precise implementation and interpretation of that software is what separates the MP II from other simulators; the exact timing, intensity and accuracy of its proprietary full-motion system, tactile transducers and force-feedback controls, together with 5.1 surround sound and a 1080p high-definition video display. The CXC MP II is now also available as a flight simulator. Trusted by professional racers and loved by home simulator users, the CXC Motion Pro II provides the ultimate driving simulator experience.

CXC Drivers Compete in iRacing Virtual Simulator Tournament

Pro Driver & CXC Sim User Townsend Bell involved in Las Vegas IndyCar Crash

Professional Indycar driver Townsend Bell, a client of CXC Simulations http://www.cxcsimulations.com/, who participated in IZOD IndyCar Series Championship, was involved in a 15-car wreck at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on October 16th, 2011 that resulted in the loss of star Indy racecar driver Dan Wheldon“s life.

After placing 11th at the Kentucky Indy 300 on October 3rd, the California native looked forward to a stronger finish in his next racing event. Unfortunately, the IndyCar Championship served to highlight the immense dangers involved in professional auto racing.

Early in the Las Vegas race, Bell was caught up in a tragic 15-car wreck that resulted in the loss of star Indy racecar driver Dan Wheldon“s life. It was „certainly the most violent crash that I“ve been involved in,“ Bell said in a Today Show interview after the accident.

No doubt that IndyCar racing is a very high-risk profession. Not always able to be on the track, to be as prepared as he can be on race day, Bell trains with the CXC Motion Pro II racing simulator http://www.cxcsimulations.com/motion-pro/. In an interview at CXC Simulations“ offices, Bell explained how the Motion Pro II racing simulator is realistic enough to help him train for IndyCar racing: „What this really helps me do is sharpen my physical approach to driving and my mental approach to driving.

„I found that when I drive this – especially this particular [CXC racing simulator], because I“ve tried lots of them and this is my favorite by far – when I“ve tried this and then gone to the racetrack the next day, or that week, I find myself so much more ready for the first 10 laps of the real thing.“ Bell said that using a racing simulator „is a nice accelerant to getting ready,“ getting his hands, forearms and feet alive – the perks of a professional motion simulator. „CXC makes such a great product in terms of tactile feedback,“ Bell added.

CXC Motion Pro II

The CXC Motion Pro II http://www.cxcsimulations.com/motion-pro/ is meticulously assembled from aluminum, laser-cut steel and carbon fiber, the same materials as racecars. Powered by a purpose-built rack-mounted simulation computer, it is compatible with all major commercial and online racing software options and users may choose from a nearly inexhaustible and ever-increasing list of modern or vintage cars to drive, including F1, GT, NASCAR, sports cars, off-road, open-wheel and rally (even race boats) and tracks around the world to race on. Yet the implementation and interpretation of that software is what separates the MP II from other simulators; the precise timing, intensity and accuracy of its proprietary full-motion system, tactile transducers and force-feedback controls, together with 5.1 surround sound and a 1080p high-definition video display – all working together to give you a realistic sensation of racing. Trusted by professional racers and loved by home simulator users, the CXC Motion Pro II provides the best racing simulator experience of any simulator on the market.

CXC Simulations http://www.cxcsimulations.com, headquartered in Marina del Rey, California, was established specifically to manufacture a professional-level racing simulator that was not only suitable for pro drivers and race teams, but is also practical for home use.

The recent ConverTTable driving simulator - manufacturing and test drive
ConverTTable from coffe table to a design driving simulator

Behind-the scenes tour and demonstration of the manufacturing in Austria. Test drive to the core of the design furniture in a real Hi-Fi studio.

From coffee table to a designer simulator cockpit
The times when you had to argue with your girlfriend about a game-race you desperately wished to play on your computer or console now belong to the past: one flick of the wrist and your ConverTTable undergoes a smooth transformation from a coffee table into a gaming cockpit that can be hooked up with your existing playstation or computer. The newly-developed ConverTTable together now with a RECARO seat and a Shaker System from RACE-STAR provides you with the right racing – atmosphere and within seconds you easily slip into the shoes of a formula-one star.

The ConverTTable at german TV Kabel 1
Markus Rumpold (http://www.autosimulator.at), inventor of the ConverTTable, presented his most recent model on the broadcast „Abenteuer Leben täglich Wissen“, hosted by Marc Bosch. The programme presented various gaming simultations, from handmade to professional products. The ConverTTable could stand the test of a dedicated user best and emerged from that competition as a top of the line gaming simultation as well as a piece of furniture, featuring flawless design.
Clip of the programme: http://youtu.be/rbTFo36NJ_E

The production at Rene Innovatives Wohnen in Austria
ConverTTables are proudly made in Austria, crafted by Rene Innovatives Wohnen. During the making of the programme, Rene Peconik, head of the company, gives a behind-the scenes tour and demonstrates the precise practice to produce a coffe table and a cockpit all rolled into one. Marc Bosch gets the opportunity to witness craftmanship that leeads to this high-quality-furniture with his own eyes. The ConverTTable is produced following the saying: There are no limits to what carpentry can achieve! We accompany the ConverTTable from the production hall to the premises of the company Blödorn in Hartberg, where the ConverTTable is tested to the core in a real Hi-Fi studio that leaves no wish unanswered. Where men become kids again.

The series ConverTTable
The ConverTTable subtly blends in delicately into a living room and can be used and hooked up with existing devices such as a TV-set or a sound station. When not in use, the ConverTTable looks like a fancy coffee table that can be, after coffee had been served and cookies had been eaten, turned into a multi-functional racing cockpit featuring a bucket seat, a steering wheel, gas plus other gears and a keyboard – all that without striking a blow.
The ConverTTable base model, priced at EUR 5.433,– incl. Vat, is available in the combination white/wood, features an extraordinarily durable plastic-surface and includes the RECARO sport-seat, Shaker System, a Porsche GT3RS wheel and ClubSport pedals.

The Custom ConverTTable
There are no holds barred for he demanding taste though: whoever wants to have his/her own colour-combinations realized goes for a customized version! The ConverTTable Custom comes with painted surfaces as well as the option of painted or real wooden side walls, priced at EUR 6.133,– incl. Vat.
