The First Competition

In the past simrace247 have done picture competitions, which have been great, but this one is a little different. This competition involves your favorite sim racing title and why you enjoy playing it so much. Taking a single picture in game (which will not count to the judging) and explain why you rate the title so highly and why you think others should be playing it.

We recommend a minimum of 100 words that will be judged, the game itself does not contribute to the judgment and will be read by our team. Even though we have our favorite titles here at simrace247, this will be judged on the words provided and not our preferences.
