YouTubing sim racer Laurence Dusoswa presents his “first impressions” video checking out the H1 H-Pattern Shifter designed and built in York, England by BDH.
While most sim racers use paddles or a sequential shifter to do all the gear selecting, old-school racing enthusiasts might prefer an H-Pattern shifter to simulate the raw physical experience from yesteryear.
The impressive-looking H1, nicknamed “Bazooka” is the first professional-grade H-Pattern sim racing shifter developed by BDH. The gear-shifting mechanism of the H1 is based on the gearbox found in a classic Ford Escort MKII Rally car. The shifter is available with a number of optional Shaft lengths, giving you further configuration capabilities to match your driver style.
The Plug and play USB-powered shifter connects to a PC ( Not console compatible) via a single USB lead, with no additional configuration needed. The unit can be mounted to a standard 80mm x 40mm aluminum profile using 4 pre-drilled holes.
