Sim Racing Entry Guide

Our Sim Racing starter's guide is specially designed to help newcomers into the sport (eSport) prioritize, balance out costs and get the best experience from what they decide to go with. We've laid out several options for everyone to choose from and slowly move up as they find a further interest in Sim Racing!

The essential device you need to have to truly experience good, realistic simulators is to have a gaming PC. It does not have to be the latest specs, but ideally something that has the capability for Virtual Reality (VR) in the future. A decent gaming PC build would cost around $1,500 in today's prices [05-Jan-2022]

And if you're not willing to invest too much into Sim Racing, you can race on free/cheap titles found on the Steam Store, while using your keyboard or a game controller just to get a feel of how far the Sim Racing industry has come.

Display Output

Different people have different preference in how they want to "see" their racing. But our 2 recommendations are Virtual Reality (VR) which really puts you as if you're in the seat of the car, allowing you to look all directions by turning your head, as you would in real life. Or if you can't stand VR, go for an Ultrawide Monitor. Here are our recommendations for either:

1. Oculus Quest 2 - From $600

  • Most affordable VR headset

  • Relatively good quality

  • Simple setup

2. Prism+ X300 - From $429

  • 30" Ultrawide Curved monitor

  • One of the best priced in the market

  • Monitor arm makes mounting anywhere easy


Sim Rig

We strongly recommend going for aluminium profile rigs as they are modular, so they can be adjusted anytime, any way you like, and they are relatively affordable. The main Con is that building it may be a little bit difficult. However, we do provide a few variations of rigs we have build and tested before and offer all the parts needed to build them yourself.

1. Basic Rig - From $600

  • Rigs are adjustable to F1 or GT layouts

  • Comes with a Kart seat, upgradeable to bucket seat

  • Minimalistic design to save space

2. Advanced Rig - From $850

  • Comes with a bucket seat with slider

  • Reinforced base for more stability

3. Advanced Rig + Monitor Mount - From $950

  • Come with an extra profile for mounting monitors

*Available in Black with an additional top up
