SimXperience GS-5 G-Seat Unveiling in Toronto

Originally, Pat Dotson who was the former operator of UltraForce Simulations designed the much talked about GS-4 Motion Seat for racing sims and flight simulators. A few years launching the seat, Pat joined forces with Berney Villers at SimXperience.  Soon after, Pat and Berney decided to discontinue the SimXperience GS-4 G-Seat and begin a re-design which should result in a significant improvement on the original product.

So now the day has come. During this week’s Indycar race in the Streets of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the SimXperience team will proudly unveil the second generation SimXperience GS-5 G-seat.

Press Release:

It’s here!  Now is your chance to drive the highly anticipated SimXperience GS-5 G-seat, which will be unveiled at the 2018 Honda Indy race in Toronto, Canada. The motorized GS-5 G-seat creates extreme seat-of-the-pants forces just like in a real race car! Feel all the simulated twists, turns, bumps, accelerations, and insane braking forces real drivers experience as you pilot a race car around the track at Toronto’s Exhibition Place.

he SimXperience GS-5 is the second generation G-seat produced by SimXperience. Powered by strong industrial grade electric motors, the GS-5 is the successor to the class-defining GS-4, which set the original high bar for motion feedback realism. With in-depth refinement and extended durability testing, the GS-5 improves on the GS-4 in every way with race-ready performance, comfort for long endurance races, highly detailed vehicle feedback and spectacular good looks!

Two SimXperience GS-5 prototypes will be available for the public to test drive starting Friday, July 13th and continuing through Sunday, July 15th.  Head-to-Head racing sessions using the rFactor 2 simulation software will happen in the Honda Experience tent where Honda will be providing four SimXperience Stage 5 Racing Simulators and a variety of other entertainment.

Simulator test drives will be provided for a charitable donation of any size to the Make-A-Wish Foundation via the on-site donation box near the racing simulators. Track admission is FREE on Friday. Saturday and Sunday will require a general admission pass. Honda graciously donates all admission proceeds to the Make-A-Wish charity.

We invite you to join us, support a great cause and experience the extreme G-forces of an open wheel race car simulation at the very demanding Toronto street circuit while attempting to beat Indy car star, James Hinchcliffe’s lap time.
