Lounge Control® by Virtual Racing Lounge is a web-based application to control the simulation, optimize workflows and activate competition in a sim-center or „simcade“. With the experience of 5+ years in our own sim-center and with the feedback from our customers and partners, we created a rock solid solution to make daily life easier for operators around the globe and ensure a high quality experience for the customer.

Our Philosophy

Lounge Control perfectly manages daily tasks in a sim-center or "simcade" and supports the operator in many ways. LC is also the connecting element between your business and the customer. With multi-servers, leaderboards and our unique „Driver Performance Index“ (DPI), we successfully activate the „competition-gene“ of your customers. Permanent improvement on the leaderboard and DPI serve as a brilliant motivator to spend more time in the simulator. Our "Global Grid" service takes competition to a completely new level.
On top, Lounge Control customers benefit from events and competitions between our partners and customers (sprint and endurance races between centers, hotlap-competitions etc.).

Why we’re different

Since 2017, the "Virtual Racing Lounge" successfully operates in Böblingen (near Stuttgart, south of Germany). Lounge Control is the answer to the many daily challenges of simcenter operations. But LC2 is not about adding all features we could possibly think of - it is about creating a tailored workflow solution with features that operators need - including reporting. For the sim-center customers, LC2 helps creating a high quality experience that's being rewarded by their position on the leaderboard and we all know - its about the competition !
LC2 is a modern, touchscreen capable solution with unique features. It focuses on the daily core tasks and intelligently integrates 3rd party services and features. We do, what we do best. As a result, LC2 is very fast to install, easy to update with our dedicated update tool, fast and reliable, fault tolerant and quick to learn. We put a lot of effort in a robust, reliable technology platform including license management and individual updates for every module of the software package. As an extra, LC2 is fully operable in an offline setting (e.g. external events, booths, outdoor....). By 2023, LC is available in many locations and race tracks around the world such as the Nürburgring and Silverstone.

VRL is official software partner of D-BOX

Built-in D-BOX integration

Wait, there is more …

Driver Performance Index

There is no way to discribe the magic of competition – so we decided to calculate it and we call it the „Driver Performance Index“ (DPI). DPI is unique and is deeply integrated in the LC2 core programming. We are happy to show it to you LIVE in person in one of our partner locations around Europe, in Canada or on a zoom call.

And with VRL „Global Grid“ we take it even one step further….

Global Grid

we are taking competition to the next level. With GLOBAL GRID, real-time competition around the globe has become reality in a way you have never seen it before.
