  • Sim racing on ESPN2

    I just watched about 1/2 hour of sim racing on ESPN2. I'm not going to try to blow smoke up anyone's tailpipes but it was fun to watch. The class that was racing was LMP3. I think the longer the world remains on lock down the better chances are that this form of intertainment will increase in popularity.

      I wish this stuff had come out about 20 years ago. I'm too old and slow to be any good at it now.

        No doubt in my opinion that virtual stuff will be a bigger deal going forward. Computer games are designed to give everyone a chance to win so many aspects of real racing are non-existent. I'd like to see cars sustain damage when involved in a racing accident (certainly for the cars responsible) so it becomes more important to take care of your car.

          I still don't like that drivers can crash all day and in most series it doesn't matter. I've been watching for years. Old Saturday Night Speedway servers were amazing to watch when some top guys were racing. They were always nice to help people out with setups too. Doesn't seem that way anymore.
