This week on Sim Racing and Esports News, I look at an Esports program that rewards the winners with a drive in British F4, details and opinions on F1 22, a review of Assetto Corsa Competizione on the PS5, track guides to some iconic global racetracks and more.
- Monica Boulton Ramos and Deagen Fairclough have the chance to race in British F4 for free in 2023 after winning the ROKiT Racing Star contest. A five-round Esports series on the RaceRoom software ran from February to April, with separate races for boys and girls. The scheme was in part masterminded by Bob Fernley, who was then the FIA Single-Seater Commission president. Formula Scout has all the details.
- The topic on Overtake is: Should F1 22 be a Sim? The Casual Fan vs The Hardcore Simracer. “But having to please both audiences leads to great challenges for the developers. Which type of player should the franchise be developed for? With the newest edition, F1 22, on the line, two of our editors discuss their hopes for F1 22 and which direction the franchise should take. Casual or close to real life?“
- Speaking of F1 22, Racefans details everything they know so far about the coming new F1 game in their F1 22 FAQ.
- Traxion reviews Assetto Corsa Competizione on the PS5. They call it “the most realistic console driving experience.”
- Grassroots Motorsports’ Robb Holland helps you tackle the world’s greatest race tracks both virtual and real. He looks at:
- Daytona International Speedway: Daytona Beach, Florida
- Suzuka International Racing Course: Suzuka City, Japan
- Mount Panorama Circuit: Bathurst, Australia
