Title: Keeping entertained during lockdown
Post by: Stephen Aarons on April 14, 2020, 09:07:08 AM
First off, I hope everyone is keeping safe in these unprecedented times we find ourselves in.
Obviously a lot of bad happening in the world at the moment, and every event has either been cancelled or postponed.
So how are you keeping busy? Keeping the racing mind sharp. A few of us have gone down the racing sim path, so, for a bit of fun. Show us your sim rigs!
I'll get started.

Ours isn't finished yet, waiting on a couple bits for the PC and running the cat6 cable to the garage.

It's simple and very cheap, and will be a great way to get started with iRacing.

And we kept it true to the marque by using a GTV6 seat.

I think Ava has claimed it, I've even made it so the pedals can be moved so she can reach them.

The only two front wheel drive cars on iracing are either the Audi TCR car, or a diesel vw jetta 😅

Awesome!
My son has a PS4 - What's the best car racing game do you think?.... AND what about hardware [steering wheel/pedals/etc] recommendations?
