Niels Heusinkveld Q&A Part 5 – Hobbies and ‘other sims’

Niels Heusinkveld of Heusinkveld Engineering presents part 5 of his Q&A session.

In this 30-minute episode, Niels talks and jokes about his hobbies besides Sim Racing related stuff and also shares his view on what he calls the ‘other sims’ out there.

Interestingly, Niels explained that he had a look at the rFactor 2 tire model together with the ISI physics engineer, Michael Borda, and was impressed with the complexity of the model. Niels was especially impressed with the work by ISI’s Terence Groening. All in all, Niels states that it will be very unlikely that we will see some of his work featured in the rFactor 2 simulator.

Due to the busy schedule and the lack of time and interest, Niels did not have the opportunity to dig deeper into the physics engines of the new-gen simulators such as the Assetto Corsa Simulator and Project CARS, and therefore will most probably not be able to contribute anything for those platforms any time soon.


Heusinkveld Engineering is a Dutch company that offers a broad array of products and services to the real and virtual racing scene. From advanced vehicle simulation software to simulator hardware. Sim Racers might also know Niels as the main physics creator at Reiza Studios.
