RECARO seats are guaranteeing a perfect performance car feeling at Gamescom 2017.

At this year’s Gamescom, which will take place from August 22 to 26 in Cologne, RECARO Automotive Seating will be adding a maximum dose of reality to the racing video game experience. The manufacturer of premium vehicle seats will equip the Ford Performance Racing Simulators with exactly the same RECARO Sportster CS seat model that is used in the actual Ford Focus RS. “For maximum driving pleasure and a very-close-to-real feeling of performance, it’s very important for the car’s original seats to be part of the equation,” says Markus Kussmaul, Executive Director of the Adient Specialty Seating Group and responsible for the worldwide business of RECARO Performance Car Seating. “With this synergy of visual and haptic experiences we’re giving visitors the chance to sense the quality and dynamics of RECARO performance seats for themselves, while getting a strong physical impression of what driving a Ford Focus RS is really like.” The Ford Performance Racing Simulators at the world’s largest trade show for video and computer games use the renowned Xbox One video racing game Forza Motorsport 6. Gamescom visitors will be able to get behind the wheel of a virtual Ford Focus RS and attempt to get the best lap time. The fastest competitors on August 23, 24 and 25 will receive a pair of the RECARO Seats that are also used in the simulators. They will also be flown by helicopter to drive the Ford Focus RS on a real track, with coaching from Le Mans 24 Hours race winner, Harry Tincknell.
