Michael Fassbender is a well-known actor of all kinds of blockbusters. He has always had a passion for cars, and a few years ago he had the opportunity to be on a flight with actor Patrick Dempsey, who had decided to embark on an exciting career in motor racing.
Dempsey has a very good relationship with Porsche, having first been a driver, and now co-owner of the Dempsey-Proton team which competes in numerous endurance events around the world. Dempsey’s contacts at Porsche served to open the appropriate doors for Michael who, with a good checking account, was able to debut in several major competitions, with some success.
All this adventure of Fassbender with Porsche can be found in the Youtube series Road to Le Mans which we will not spoil here, and which shows the Irish driver under different facets of the world of competition. In one of the chapters he briefly talks about off-piste preparation, and for this he goes to one of the trusted simulators for the representation of his mount. Porsche RSR 991 in iRacing using a team we describe below.
Fassbender has a relatively simple simulator, and by the time it has some components, it looks like it’s been good at simRacing for a long time. We see a cockpit and seat belong to Sim-Lab.eu. Simucube 1 or VRS base, today a little more obsolete than a SC2 Pro, with Heusinkveld Ultimate pedals. As we can see, it’s completed with a 27-inch triple monitor stand from ASUS (we’ve linked you to a very good quality DELL) and to facilitate its maneuverability in the seat, a Logitech keyboard and some headphones that we cannot identify as audio equipment. A PC completes the set to move everything with the necessary fluidity.
