Video: How Realistic is Sim Racing?

Scott Mansell of Driver61 connects the dots between real-world and virtual in this video where he weighs into the realism debate that has forever hovered over sim racing as an esport.

Scott says in the video intro: “The quality of sim racing software and hardware is improving at a rapid rate, and aside from not being able to feel all of the motion of a real-life car, sim racing is one of the closest to real-life, of all the gaming options out there.

“So, how close is sim racing to the real-world, what are the differences and if you’re fast in a sim, will you be fast in a real-world car?”
