This week sim racing coach Suellio Almeida compares sim racing to the real thing based on his recent experience racing an F4 car.

Not only that but I profile two more sim racers making their way into real world motorsport, one in rallying and one in stock cars showing once again how it is becoming a real path forward in motorsport.

As always, I have the latest competitive and general sim racing and tech news plus overtaking tips from Daniel Morad.

All this and more in this week’s Sim Racing Roundup on Motorsport Prospects. Sim racing news for racers not gamers.

“In 2021 Wroblewski entered the Rally at Home Challenge, and it paid off. He was named one of the fastest in North America, earning him the chance to compete in Italy in the FIA Rally Star American Final against other racers from around the world. Wroblewski’s goal is to become the first Canadian world rally champion and he hopes to inspire other sim-racers that anything is possible as long as you have the passion and drive to go full throttle.”

“One of the most highly touted prospects in the modern era, Logano burst onto the premier series scene at 18, collecting his first full-time schedule one year later with high expectations at Joe Gibbs Racing. Byron, a sim-racing superstar, wasn’t far behind when he introduced himself at 20 years old and joined Hendrick Motorsports to take over the legendary No. 24, made famous by NASCAR Hall of Famer Jeff Gordon.”
