Video Blog: Simulators on TV, Sims for All

In yesterdays blog I talked about how Felipe Nasr and the Sauber Formula One team was at a huge dis advantage by not having a simulator.  I dare say any racing fan or even car guy that doesn't sim is at a dis advantage of life.

In today's we blog we find two more examples of simulators being used in various ways and at the highest of levels.  The first being Translogic of Autoblog doing a feature utilizing CXC top of the line sims.  The host of the show did a track day, followed by hours of driving and instruction from Chris Considine of CXC sims to learn the track even better.   The following day he returned to the track to see how he improved. 

In the next example it is a re occurring story to NASCAR fans who watch it on NBC.  And that is the use of iRacing by Parker Kligerman to demonstrate certain aspect of stock car racing to the fans watching on tv.  In this particular example he is using iRacing and the new High Down Force aero package that was to be mandated by NASCAR.  He was driving and explaining this change to the car while driving a simulation.

In both of these shows it is Sim Racing being shown to the general public in the best of light.  Not being shown as over enthusiastic gamers, but as real life training for motorsports.

TP needs some updating. It is not very intuitive for new users. Instructions are hard to follow at times. Support response is in need of someone's dedication. Having individual paints is a real attraction within iRacing. This needs to be done better or replaced! ​Interesting that without member support there would be no answers or help. It's a shame, the program is so popular not to have good management.
