The GT style seating position.
Basically, there are two categories of seat position in sim racing: GT (upright) and formula (reclined). GT seating position tends to be quite straight, perhaps even more vertical than your daily car, whereas formula seating positions emulating F1 are closer to 45 degrees. The position you decide on can be dictated by the capabilities of your cockpit or the type of race car you’re trying to simulate. Today we were talking about GT proper seating posture. So is there actually an ideal position for all drivers? Well, there is something very close to a perfect position that allows for comfort (which leads to less fatigue), leverage, bracing and good
control of the vehicle in all types of driving conditions. If you take a look closer at a professional sports car race, you will see almost every driver using this same set-up. Let’s find out what is the correct position and how to set up and adjust the sim racing cockpit.
