From Sim Racing to the Real Thing

William Byron

I have two articles on NASCAR driver William Byron on his journey from iRacing to NASCAR for you to read. They are yet more encouragement for those wondering if it is possible to transition from sim racing to the real thing.

Red Bull have a great article called Sim It to Win It which talks about the path from sim racing to real-life racing as demonstrated by Jann Mardenborough.

For Mardenborough, having an edge on the racetrack goes beyond raw skill: “The most important part is the mental ability and the zone mindset.” He believes the composure honed in GT’s immersive gameplay, where a distraction could be something as minor as someone barging into your bedroom, has helped him learn how to quickly regain focus and control on the track, even if a hazard such as a near-miss disrupts his flow.”
