The DiRT 3 racing seat has been announced, with styling modelled on real rally cars, and complete with head stabilizers, plus some other additions above Playseat’s flagship Evolution model.
The seat is compatible with all digital driving wheels supported by DiRT 3, with a robust and stable metal frame. It has a folding mechanism with a fully adjustable frame for height, length and depth, and it’s suitable for gamers from age eight and up. It’s upholstered in leatherlook vinyl with the offical DiRT 3 branding and synthetic leather reinforcement in areas which are likely to get a lot of wear. The seatback and base cusgions are removable, and the seat will fit drivers up to a 42-inch waist.It’s particularly suited to the Logitech G27 with special screws to ensure the Logitech set-up fits perfectly.
The price is £439 online at the moment, so it’s not cheap, but will easily be better than trying to balance your wheel on your knees or your coffee table! And just to make sure – you’re buying the seat, not the wheel and pedals, unless you choose one of the bundled offers on the Playseat website. But obviously a seat is compatible with all consoles and computers, so no problems there!
