TREQ was founded in the summer of 2020 by Jim, Rick and Tim. We all have a love for cars and racing. Jim hasn’t missed any of the last 300 F1 races, Tim builds and casts his own 2-stroke engine blocks and all three of us step in a go-kart regularly. We’ve met during our study at the HAN University of Applied Sciences in Automotive Engineering, in which we all graduated.

While still very young at 30, Jim has been playing racing simulators for most of his life. Starting of with Geoff Hammond’s ‘Grand Prix 2’ when he was 8, and he hasn’t quit since. Over the years he’s had numerous racing wheels, pedals and rigs, playing various racing titles on consoles and PC. We bet he can tell you a thing or two about sim racing. And while Jim was busy racing, Rick and Tim were building their own company: HEVES Engineering. Growing rapidly, within just a few years they founded a team of engineers creating unique technical solutions for companies.


Our goal is to bring both fun and passion to the sim racing community with a lot of in-house developed products. We believe we can make a difference in sim racing with both our current and future products. Together with great quality, personal service and fast deliveries.

The experience and creativity of us and all the engineers at HEVES, combined with a ton of enthusiasm, will make sure a new wind is blowing in the world of sim racing.
