GT Omega Racing Simulator Review - Specifications, Pricing and Availability

GT Omega Racing is the name of the company and the product, but it could have been simplified to "Fun".

Specifications, Pricing and Availability

 

GT Omega Racing is based in the UK, a place where they know a thing or two about racing. The company has only one main product, the GT Omega Racing Simulator, but they also offer accessories for their product or you can buy a total all-inclusive package for a little more. For years we've shown you products like the GT Omega Racing Simulator at trade shows and talked about how cool they'd be if the cost wasn't so damned high. For most, the cost has always been the limiting factor, so let's knock that out first.

 

The basic GT Omega Racing Simulator costs 454 USD. Yes, less than 500 Dollars gets you a proper race car seating position that can be broken down into two separate pieces for easy storage. The Pro package with shifter, keyboard tray and monitor support costs an additional 113 USD.

The specifications list above covers quite a few areas of interest. As you can see, the GT Omega Simulator is designed to work with several components and is quite flexible. By no means are you limited by the components listed; your options are limited only by your imagination.

 

At the bottom of the list we see an image of the Pro model with all of the included accessories.

Here we see a stock image of the basic package (wheel, pedals and speakers not included). The basic package gets you in the game quickly and allows you to set the chair up in front of your existing TV or monitor. Unfortunately you do not get the shifter mount accessory that is so popular with the Logitech G25/G27.

All of the accessories can be purchased separately, so it's possible to buy the basic package and then add on the shifter, but given the individual accessory prices, you're better off getting everything all at once. The other thing to consider is your future needs. GT Omega Racing has thought of everything and you may find that mounting a dedicated monitor that sits closer to your eyes is better than a larger monitor further away. We'll get into that later in this article.

 

It should be noted that the Xbox 360 wheel adapter has to be purchased on its own and is not included in the basic or pro package.
