Three new products have been added to the Next Level Racing hardware range for budding or established sim-racers.
Your sim-ring set-up can be critical to the enjoyment of racing games, and in this burgeoning market, there is now more choice than ever – from entry-level wheel-attached-to-a-desk, to mid-range gaming chair and then on to the full cockpit.
New to the Next Level Racing range are the GTtrack Frame and F-GT Frame. This is the frame-only element of the already established GTtrack and F-GT Cockpits. In other words, everything you need for a full cockpit, but minus the seat, so that you can enter the pro-level set-ups from a lower price point.
Both models include Next Level’s Universal Seat Bracket, which supports all major racing seats on the market and is constructed from 5mm carbon steel for extra rigidity.
The GTtrack Frame and F-GT Frame feature pre-drilled arrangements for all Thrustmaster, Logitech and Fanatec steering wheels and pedals and compatibility with the Motion Platform V3 should you decide to go down that future in the future.
The former is priced at €599/$599 (USD)/$899 (AUD)/£549, while the latter is €399/$399 (USD)/$599 (AUD)/£349. Both are available from this month.
Finally, moving away from the chassis and onto seats, and in an almost reverse move, if you have the existing Wheel Stand DD/2.0, you can now buy the GT Seat add-on to turn it into a full cockpit. You see, every option covered. Also available in March, it will also be compatible with future motion platforms, accessories and Wheel Stand 2.0 products. It costs €499/$499 (USD)/$749 (AUD)/£449.
It pleases us when sim and gaming hardware manufacturers make moves to expand their ranges and improve accessibility into the market. These new additions effectively mean you can build the ideal cockpit up over time or mix and match with existing equipment.
