One of today’s Reader Submissions has come in from Plush Labs, displaying the off-roading skills of sim racers in the iRacing.com Drivers World Championship series.
At the end of July, iRacing’s official F1 league held a race at Okayama. In the recap, you can see almost everybody taking a dip into the sand on the exits of Williams, Revolver Corner, and Last Corner, as well as the entry to Atwood Curve.
Seeing them dip so hard into the dirt without any evidence of having done so – even under braking – makes me quite irritated. These cars should be pitched every which way when thrown in the sand like that, and yet they seem to drive better with a tire on the grass than it does on asphalt.
