The idea is to develop a virtual reality simulation that can be easily used on common VR Box style viewers with
the iPhone device. Reaction training is a major principle in drag racing where most drivers struggle to be better and many races are won or lost.
The VR APP simulates more of the factors of this part of the drag race, with most of the senses present, like the sound of the raging engine, the confinement of a drag car cockpit and the feeling of being in a helmet, along with the visuals associated with starting a drag race. This “practice simulator” is far more productive than any on the market today.
Based on some research through google and event searches, there is nothing like this in a mobile app. There are very large expensive simulators, but nothing the average drag racer could afford or even facilitate.
A drag racer or future Sportsman could put on his VR box viewer and sit on their couch, at their desk, or in their bed and practice on a “true simulator“. The results should be a more consistent reaction time and this should be easy to test and improve. For the active racer, this simulator can be used to “train your brain” to be more proficient when having to race a Pro Tree, then move to a Sportsman or Full Tree, or train for events before attending.
From the novice youth racers in junior dragsters starting at age 7 all the way to seasoned veteran stock Eliminator racers, this applies to every drag strip in the USA, possibly worldwide and be very beneficial in the NHRA, IHRA, PDRA, SHRA, NMCA and just about any drag race application.
Anyone can use this App to get more of a real feeling of what it is like to be on a real Drag strip starting line!
