Wave Italy and the promoters of the “Motorsport for Planet & People” project, presented the first professional driving simulator for Sim Racing adapted for athletes and people with disabilities, during the meeting at the Italian Olympic Committee( C.O.N.I.) Hall of Honor last November 23, dedicated to an in-depth study on “Virtual and Simulated Sports.”
In the video presentation the tester is Andrea Sansò, in 2021 the first Italian Absolute Champion of Wheelchair Billiards, pool specialty, and a great fan of Motorsport.
Consistent to his philosophy, also for this new simulator, first in the Sim Racing sector, some technical solutions used on real cars were implemented, which allowed the optimization of ergonomics and enable people with disabilities to compete on par with the so-called “able-bodied”.
Everything came about as a result of a memorandum of understanding between some associations, companies and prominent testimonials in the world of Motorsport, including Domenico Schiattarella former Formula 1 driver and creator of DS Performance Driving and, last but not least, the company Fadiel Italiana srl, excellence in the production of driving devices and systems for the disabled, including on racing cars.
