Oxfordshire-based simulator company Rock Solid Rigs, directed by F1 engineer and entrepreneur Mark Foster, has secured UK government backing to develop new racing simulators for the global market.

The company, a recognised brand within the racing simulator industry, currently manufactures its simulators in the UK using renewable or recycled materials, in line with governmental Net Zero targets.

The backing coincides with the launch of Rock Solid Rigs’ new eCommerce site, which features upgraded racing simulator cockpits along with a number of new options, as well as a rebrand to bring its online presence in line with the largest competitors in the market.

Rock Solid Rigs has also finalised a new Research and Development building in Bicester, which is now home to all its prototyping, production and business development activities.
