Next Level Racing Motion Simulator Platform V3

Pagnian Imports introduced the third iteration of their Next Level Racing Motion Platform.

They continued developing their professional grade Motion Platform to make the already solid motion sim even better while keeping in mind that the unit has to be suitable for both home use and advanced professional applications.

Version 3 of the Next Level Racing Motion Platform now has a revised housing to accommodate for the internal power supply and internal micro-controller. Instead of a red color finish, the V3 now comes in Stealth Black with laser cut logos. Besides enhancing the visuals, the unit also received internal optimizations.

The Pagnian design team updated the encoders to further enhance the accuracy. The V3 is also 200% faster than the original V1 version, resulting in a significantly better immersion factor. They also revised the passive and active cooling method with adaptive fan speed control to ensure the unit stays cool even under demanding commercial use.

Furthermore, the Next Level Racing Motion Platform V3 comes with Tactile Feedback Vibration features simulating road bumps, road texture, engine vibrations, gear changes, collisions, rubs & bumps.

For safety reasons, the V3 features Electromagnetic Motor Shaft Brakes to prevent any undesired movement of the seat if the platform is switched off. Such a feature is usually only used in high-cost commercial motion platforms. In an effort to make the Next Level Racing Motion Platform one of the quietest motion platforms on the market, the V3 now has acoustical panels fitted inside the housing to reduce the noise of operation. The V3 noise levels are even lower than the V1 and V2 which were both known for being surprisingly quiet.

The Next Level motion platform comes complete with Next Level Racing Platform Manager Software. This is professional and specialized software for the platform and is click and play compatible with all major racing and flight titles on PC and is constantly updated to support new software titles as they are released.

The Next Level Racing Motion Simulator Platform V3 can be Pre-Ordered until December 15th for £2,499.00. ( At today’s exchange rates, that translates to €2963.28 / US$ 3148.49)
