Video: Jimmy Broadbent reflects on sim racing’s biggest event


We dubbed it the most important event in the history of sim racing – the 2020 Virtual Le Mans 24 Hours -despite the ‘discos’ and other bugs the rFactor 2 platform got the honour of hosting a historic event that heralds a new era for the virtual esport.

Jimmy was in the race with Formula 1 superheroes including the likes of Fernando Alonso, Rubens Barrichello, Lando Norris, Jenson Button among almost 1000 real-life pro racers and sim racing’s finest.

He said in the video intro: “These last few months have seen a fair few crazy events take part in the sim racing world, but I think it’s fair to say that this one has them all beat. Plus it started on my birthday, so win-win!”
