It seems pro drivers should take this sim lark a bit more seriously.

Probably ********* off with F1-2019 kicking him out of the lobby every time he tries to play

They’re getting quite a good field in that game now, almost all the actual drivers and a few of the legends to.

Really enjoyed that race, properly tense! Indycar have done a really good job of their virtual series, and keeping all the other normal broadcast elements helps it feel real.

Not usually a fan of the competition yellow, but I don't know how yellows for crashes are handled in iRacing so I presume they wanted to guarantee a yellow for strategy and ads.

Originally the final race was going to be a choice of a non-Indycar track so hopefully the announcement of Indy means they might be extending the season for as long as needed until real life racing can get underway. I hope so anyway as I've really been enjoying this series the most.

Gutted for Lando, Ferrucci drove like the thug I’ve always thought he was.

Gasly and Perez join the E-sports races this week, there are a lot of rusty drivers out there who now know when they need to be race ready so maybe we’ll get more in the races.

The Indycar season starts this weekend with a behind closed doors oval race in Texas. Sky are showing practice, qualifying and the race on Sky Sports F1 and Main Event. But the race is also on Sky Sports Mix which is available without a sports subscription on Sky.

Race coverage starts at 1am Sunday morning so this will be one to record overnight and watch Sunday morning for me!

General Motor Racing Thread MkII

I see Formula Es YouTube channel is going to be showing “And we go green” the movie of the 2017-18 season. Worth a watch but it does show the Jules Bianchi crash, something that up till now I’d managed to avoid. Just a warning if you do.

Edit - Going live now

Alex Zanardi has been in collision with a truck during a hand-bike road race:

I really hope he will be ok. Alex is one of my favourite people in the world, an absolute legend.
