Sim Racing and Esports are no longer a niche activity, nor are they just reserved for the hard core gamer. They can be used by race drivers to learn new tracks and develop racecraft or can be used by young drivers looking to build experience and a budget to prepare themselves for the real thing on track.
Every week in my Sim Racing and Esports column I highlight sim racing and esports news as it would relate to a race driver. Covering racing games is not the focus of this column per se. I am looking more at how a race driver (or somebody aspiring to become one) can integrate sim racing into their driver development tool bag to help them excel both online and more importantly, offline on the real thing.
Here are 20 articles that have been featured since January that will give you a taste of what is covered. I am truly trying to curate the best advice and information out there to make this sim racing news that racers can use.
