So you’re ready to upgrade your sim racing setup but are struggling to find affordable products to compare online?

That’s a common thing that happens to probably the majority of sim racers.

But there is one affordable option that you may not have considered, and that’s a Playseat WRC racing seat.

It’s in fact named like that since it’s been officially licensed with the WRC logo.

This cockpit is suitable both for Gt3 drivers as well as rally drivers and Formula sim racers.

Playseat WRC Seat Review

The Playseat WRC is a racing seat that will improve your sim racing experience by giving you a more realistic driving position.

In fact it will give you the same kind of position that a real rally driver or Gt3 racer would have when racing.

The best thing about it is that it’s highly adjustable and has a steering wheel & pedal holder.

This way, with this Playseat’s sturdy design, you can use it for hours without feeling any discomfort with your arms or legs.

When I reviewed this sim racing seat from Playseat, I was impressed by the design and comfort it.

Let’s now dig a bit deeper into the specs of this seat.


The size of the seat is ‎ 51.18 x 19.69 x 38.58 inches and that’s without the steering wheel and pedal holder.

This means that it’s a good cockpit for people of all sizes.

However, the seat is not very lightweight, weighing in at ‎ 52 pounds.


The great thing about the Playseat WRC is that it can be adjusted to fit anyone.

It has a backrest that can be adjusted to different angles, and the height of the seat and the distance to the pedals can also be customized.

This means that you can make it suitable both for short and tall people.

For the steering wheel, you can easily slide it closer or further away from your body until you find the perfect position for you.


Another cool thing about the Playseat WRC is that it has a black and white design with a carbon look, which looks very modern.

But the comfort is where this seat excells at.

It’s made from high quality materials and is very comfortable to use, even for long periods of time.

That means if you want to take part in endurance races such as the GT World Challenge Endurance series, you can comfortably be at your best throughout he whole 3 or 6 hours race.

Where can you place the seat?

You can place the seat anywhere you want basically, though usually sim racers prefer keeping it in their bedroom.

It’s also great since the seat has a folding system, so it can be moved around pretty easily and won’t take up too much space


  • Superior build quality, stability and comfort

  • Folds for easy storage
  • Suitable for all sizes
  • Superior comfort
