SimSteering Force Feedback System
A high performance steering system for professional use. The high precision and completely linear response, coupled with high strength provides the ultimate in realistic steering force feedback for all types of driving.
Being based at Silverstone UK - the home of British Motorsport has given us the opportunity to work closely with race teams, drivers and simulator manufacturers to create the most realistic steering system available on the market.
Typical applications of the steering system include:
- Race car training simulators
- Road car and HGV training
- Public display simulators (such as static F1 show cars etc)
This system is in use by many teams participating in race series including F1, GP2, F3, LMP1, LMP2 and WTCC.

PC connection is through USB and is detected by Windows as a standard gaming device. No drivers or plugins are required. Compatible with directX allowing excellent compatibility with current and future simulation software.
The motor and control box are separated and connect as standard by two, two metre cables* which gives great flexibility for mounting solutions. Typically the motor is mounted inside or at the end of a cockpit and connected to a steering column. Desktop motor mounting solutions and options for direct wheel connection to the shaft are shown further down the page.
A 3D model of the motor is available on the Downloads page to assist you with your own mounting solution.
Tested on rFactor 1&2, Assetto Corsa, iRacing, DiRT 1,2&3, F1 2010 - 2013, P. C.A.R.S, all SimBin titles, Richard Burns -Rally plus many more.
Modular system that allows you to connect various motorsport steering wheels or your own steering column. We also have a range of our own simulator steering wheels. These do not electronically connect to the SimSteering system and are connected to the PC separately. Pedals are also treated as separate devices.
All SimSteering products are designed and hand built at our facility at Silverstone with a focus on high quality and reliability. The original version of the system designed in 2009 by Leo Bodnar has been used day in day out by many professional driver training centres, race teams (including F1), public display simulators and sim racers worldwide since 2010.
*alternative cable lengths are available at additional cost.
This is just a very small fraction of our full range of products. We also manufacture a range of USB interface boards, shift lights and accessories for simulation use. Please visit www.leobodnar.com for more information.
