  • Virtual Sports

    So this norning, I got a message from MotoGp saying their virtual race was about to begin. I was a little confused, but sure enough, they were racing using a sim with the actual MotoGP announcers calling the race. A really cool thing to do in my opinion and had me thinking other motorsport leagues might be doing sonething similar. Turns out NASCAR has partnered with iRacing.

    I watched Homestead. It turns out NASCAR drivers are worse at video games than they are at actual racing. There was a caution every 3 or 4 laps. Jimmie Johnson ended up causing a wreck and going two laps down because he didn't realize they were under green. He also said at one point he just sat in the pit box because he didn't get close enough to his pit board to trigger the pit stop.

        Indy just started an iRacing series, too. I have very, very, very little interest in esports, but this is the exception.

          I heard they were doing to march madness version but had to scrap it after Duke threw a hissy fit for not having a flop button.

            Millennials have been training their whole lives for this moment. All those hours spent vegetating on their sofas, drinking Red Bull and eating Funyuns are finally about to pay off. Bigly.

                Food aside you’re damn straight. This quarantine is going to do wonders for my Starcraft 2 game.

                  This. Deschet seems to forget that we have an endless recipe book in our pockets now. I routinely make bad ass dinners while high as a kite.
