practical racing in an rare way. The 30-minute documentary
“Fusion: Motorsport meets SIM racing” describes a pioneering work
in a growth of a steering wheel, that works ideally in
both racing cars and simulators, in fact – from a initial idea
noticed with scepticsim, by a initial meetings and various
construction phases, to testing. The documentary is accessible on BMW

Motorsport is a confidant and critical step in a company’s development.
For a initial time, we designed a steering circle that can be used not
usually in a sim rig, though also in a real-life racing car. With all our
knowledge we felt prepared for this project, and a tests so distant prove
that we have finished a good job. Seeing a steering circle in movement for
a initial time in a BMW M4 GT3 corruption gave me crow bumps – and
examination a documentary did as well.”
