Keeping entertained during lockdown
« 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.

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?
