You will not mistake the FRS as anything but an open wheel simulator. Unlike the vast majority of chassis on the market designed to only replicate the seating position, the FRS truly bridges the gap between virtual and real; visually and functionally. Ushering a new generation of sim racing cockpits, the FRS brings together form and function at an unprecedented price point for a comparable cockpit.
If you don't want to settle for a formula-position chassis that looks like every other cockpit out there or spend tens (or hundreds) of thousands on something that looks realistic, the FRS is the only simulator that can do it.

Formula, meet Sim Racing
The Pit Lane Sim Racing Formula Racing Simulator (FRS) cockpit is the world's first sim racing cockpit of its kind. Designed from the ground up as a simulator based on Formula 3 (F3) size and proportions, it combines the best of both worlds.
As a simulator, it provides the features we all have come to expect and enjoy in a premium simulator including adjustability and flexible compatibility. As a formula cockpit, you won't mistake it for anything other than an open wheel simulator. Designed to scale including full size faux side pods, air intake, and engine cover, whether you are outside looking at it or sitting in it racing, it is the most rewarding and immersive cockpit of its kind built specifically for sim racers.
Optional Halo will be available in the future for fans of F1 and smaller formula series requiring Halos.
'Formula Tub' Upgrade Path
Take a little bit of the sting out of the cost of the cockpit by starting with a Formula Tub. The Formula Tub is the core of the FRS simulator and includes all the functionality and offers an upgrade path to a full simulator cockpit through the addition of the upgrade pack (available by November 2023). The upgrade pack will include the nose, side pods, and intake and engine cover sections.
Why does The Formula Tub cost so much? The center section is built like a rock; quad alum. rail chassis unlike traditional double rail chassis, fully boxed configuration for unmatched stiffness and rigidity. It serves the same function as the tub chassis in actual formula cars and is designed to support the entire simulator as well as the optional motion packages.
The Formula Tub cockpit also includes seat brackets, seat slider, and the same adjustable wheel deck and pedal plate brackets as well as body panels to complete the Formula Tub section. Get all the functionality up front and add the flare later!
Adjustable and Flexible
As a sim racing cockpit, the FRS can't just look good. Both functionality and form were equally important. As a result, the FRS includes several features that have never been seen in a formula sim racing cockpit of this type:
- Adjustable pedal mount including distance from seat and tilt angle
- Adjustable wheel mount including height and angle
- Seat side mount brackets to fit a wide range of seats such as Sparco GP Sim Racing seat, Next Level Racing ES1 seat, and many side-mount FIA and sim racing bucket seats.
- Seat slider
- Easy removal of nose and body panels for access and adjustability
- Compatibility with a wide range of wheel and pedals from MOZA, Thrustmaster, Simucube, SIMGRADE, Cammus, Fanatec, Asetek, Simagic, Logitech, Heusinkveld, and others
Strongly recommended with low-profile DD wheel bases
The FRS was designed from the ground up as a sim racing cockpit and not a show piece in a commercial venue or exhibit. Whether you are a Formula One fan or other formula/open wheel fan, the FRS will not disappoint.
Official MOZA Racing Edition
In the blink of an eye, MOZA Racing went from being a newcomer to sim racing to being an established household name. How did MOZA do it? A powerful and ever-growing ecosystem, incredible performance, and unbeatable value. Backed by Automotive engineers and Sim Racing drivers dedicated to designing and building sim racing hardware and software products, MOZA was able to leapfrog years of R&D in relatively short order and build a strong community of satisfied and loyal sim racers.
As one of MOZA's largest resellers in North America, Pit Lane Sim Racing is thrilled to partner with MOZA Racing and produce an Official Licensed MOZA Racing Edition of the ground-breaking FRS cockpit. MOZA is already the official sponsor of the iRacing Dallara F3 Championship making this a natural fit given the FRS cockpit's basis of design being a Formula 3 car. But that's not all.
MOZA's dedication to designing and building the world’s best sim-racer focused hardware and software at an unprecedented value makes the FRS an excellent cockpit to represent MOZA's brand values and mission by bringing a level of excitement and immersion to formula sim racing cockpits at a price never seen before.
Engineered and tested to withstand the stresses and vibration frequency associated with the ultimate in sim racing motion; the Qubic QS-220-PL linear actuators. Capable of up to 0.8 g, 800 mm/s peak actuator speed, 100 mm (4 in.) stroke/displacement and 100 Hz real-time vibration simulation, the Qubic linear actuators in 3 Degrees of Freedom (3 DOF) format transform the FRS cockpit to a level of immersion and feedback that is unmatched for either personal or professional use.
Optional Dbox G3 and G5 brackets availability in September 2023
First, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) were conducted on the body panels to optimize each panel's thickness and design stiffening features at high stress areas. Then, they are torture tested to the point of breaking to verify the design. This gives us the confidence to stand behind the FRS. Backed by a standard 2-year limited warranty, you can have peace of mind when using the FRS cockpit.
Engineered for Pros
The FRS uses an innovative design utilizing an alum. chassis for optimal adjustability and specific strength (weight to strength ratio) combined with lightweight body panels for ease of use and assembly. Equally at home for personal or professional use, the design incorporates several key features to meet different applications.
Fully unassembled and boxed, it is incredibly easy to ship and deliver with no need for large doors or elevators allowing fitment through standard doors and corridors/hallways.
Easy to transport with minimal set up time: featuring easily detachable nose, side pods, and intake, the cockpit main section can easily be transported in a van, trailer, or pickup truck bed (minimum 6 ft or 1,800 mm bed length). Once on site and set up, attaching the add-on sections is a breeze and the FRS is ready for racing.
We have partnered with ICM Designs to provide design, customization, and branding of the cockpit in a way that has never been done before in sim racing.
Do you have your own virtual/sim or real livery? Have sponsors and want another area to display and support your sponsors? You can make the FRS cockpit your very own. ICM Designs already know the cockpit inside-out and will work with you to transform your livery to look perfectly at home on the FRS simulator's body shape and contours.
If you are starting from scratch, ICM Designs can make the FRS look like whatever you want. With a portfolio that includes designs which stand out even on packed prestigious grids across different motorsport series, you can be sure they can brainstorm a vision with you and create something that is an extension of your motorsport identity - virtual or real.
The FRS comes with all the core features you need:
- Chassis and body work
- Faux nose, side pods, and air intake/engine cover with optional package
- Side-mount seat brackets and seat sliders
- Adjustable wheel & pedal mounts
- Floor 'aero wing' stands
- Cable management ties/straps
The complete FRS simulator consists of five (5) major sections to allow ease of transportation following the initial assembly:
Main cockpit section
Lefthand (LH) sidepod
Righthand (RH) sidepod
Faux air intake & engine cover
- Complete (assembled) Simulator: 3,770 mm L x 1,930 mm W (at the side pods) x 990 mm H (at the top of the faux air intake)
