The Most Ergonomic Seating Position When Sim Racing


In this video, you’ll get a short introduction to some of the essential aspects of the seat position in different race cars by Christian Damm.

Christian has been in motorsports for more than five years. Among others, he was with Ferrari as a part of their Engineering Academy in their ERS (Energy Recovery System) department for the Ferrari F1 team. For example, your seating position is limited in GT cars because they are road cars turned into race cars.

On the other hand, the seat in a Formula car is entirely bespoke to the driver’s body. Even though there are different seat options, they still have the same thing in common: You’ll have to feel comfortable in your seat – both in real-life race cars and racing simulators.
