SIMCRAFT PARTNERS WITH THORSPORT RACING FOR CHARLOTTE MOTOR SPEEDWAY
SANDUSKY, Ohio (May 28, 2021) – ThorSport Racing announces SimCraft has partnered with the team and will be represented on the No. 66 Toyota Tundra of Ty Majeski for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
SimCraft is a premier racing simulator manufacturer and a worldwide leader in motion simulation. Their flagship product, the APEX6 PRO, a 6dof full motion racing simulator will be installed at the ThorSport Racing shop this summer for on demand, unlimited, seat time and ongoing driver development for all of the team’s competitors.
“We are super excited to partner up with ThorSport Racing and Ty Majeski.” Said Sean Patrick MacDonald, Co-Founder and CTO at SimCraft. “Ty is such a proponent of simulator usage for his own development, and we have been working with Ty’s teammate Ben Rhodes since he was racing Legends cars as a young teenager, so this partnership is a great fit for SimCraft.”
Majeski will make his track debut with ThorSport Racing when he pilots a fifth entry for the team in Friday night’s North Carolina Education Lottery 300. The accomplished late model racer has made 16 previous Camping World Truck Series starts where he has a series-best finish of eighth at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

SimCraft is a premier racing simulator manufacturer and a worldwide leader in Motion Simulation Technology. With a focus on realism, based on sports science, and an unrelenting objective of recreating the feeling of driving an actual race car, the company’s disruptive motion simulation technology is supported on all major racing simulation platforms and can be linked with any specialized or custom simulation software.
The primary benefit of SimCraft Motion Technology, is real driving feel, achieved by a unique physics based philosophy that includes independent, mechanically isolated, degrees of freedom, with a central cockpit positioned in near zero gravity. This allows the rotational axes of motion (roll, pitch, and yaw) and translational axes of motion (surge, sway,and heave) to behave as real vehicles do in earth gravity. Because every degree of freedom is independent of all the others and are all highly tunable, the experience of driving a SimCraft not only feels more real, but also follows a scientifically correct recreation of vehicle motion for the driver.
SimCraft’s APEX racing simulator product line is designed with a unique modular framework allowing for a broad range of price points, and a progressive, axis by axis, technology upgrade path: From 1DOF (YAW) to all 6DOF (FULL MOTION)
SimCraft is headquartered just outside Atlanta, Georgia. www.simcraft.com
