Its on tonight and yes Ill a have a look.

I have an iRacing set up so I have an interest in the simulator. I think you may be pleasantry surprised at just how entertaining this will be.

Given that it is the real drivers and the real commentators and there are no issues with wrecking cars I think itll be great to watch. Mind you Id watch wheel barrow racing.

Watch this little clip from a practice run on Monday night.

Yes its free. They are streaming it on facebook and on twitch @supercarschampionship. It is also on fox sports for those that have it, although obviously fox isnt free.

Fair bit of money in Esports though. I had a nephew who got several all expenses paid trips to the US to play Call of Duty.

How long does the crap at the beginning last? 25 mins into the broadcast and all I’ve heard is a bunch of people talking crap.

So the mods haven’t kicked all the kids off the game server yet?? ;)

Just wait until one of the drivers has too many beers, cracks the s***ts and refuses to admit his is out of the game and won’t hand the controller over to let the next guy to have a turn.... :cheers: ;D



Sorry, I shouldn’t joke, I’m sure some people are taking this computer game seriously.
But to me it kind of makes a mockery out of what is supposed to be a serious, professional, multi million dollar sport.
Turning it into an online gaming series hasn’t done anything to get back this former fan. :(

Have recorded it, but also watched about 2 laps of it .

Could almost get involved in it.....but, the graphics of the cars and track look just like a 1990's computer game. The input from the drivers to the steering wheel look nothing like a supercar, which is understandable, because it is just a game.
Some people may like it, but for me, it's like watching an animated movie compared to a normal one !!

On the iracing for Nascar, a driver named Bubba "crashed" 2 times in the 1st 10 laps ( only allowed 2 "crashes per race ), then hit another bloke, who then called him a name, so Bubba said adios and left the game. His sponsor made a comment about taking his bat and ball home and withdrew their sponsorship.
So it gets serious for some !!

I watched it and thought it was a great show  ;D

Well done to supercars, the drivers and everyone involved in bringing that to television. I have not read too many negative comments on any social media from those that actually watched it from start to finish. In fact most people are praising the whole thing and loved it.

For those that have iracing would know what goes into racing like they were at the end of both races. There were times were you swear you were watching the real thing. At least on the fox streaming anyway.

I look forward to the next rounds. The guys that were crashing will get a better handle on the limitations of online racing and start to mix it with the experienced iracers so itll be action right through the pack.
If I was to be a bit critical, the telecast didnt make use of the brilliant camera and replay angles that iracing offers nor did they explain the iracing platform and limitations of online racing very well. But I guess they only have so much time.

Id be curious to know who actually watched it from start to finish? The start and middle of both races were a little bit 'gaming' like, but the end once the cream came to the top show cased exactly what iracers know the sim is designed for.

And how about Antons genuine disappointment from getting a penalty lol Its just a game son!!

Really? I thought it looked pretty good. The amount of computing power it takes to run the physics is massive so I think iracing does a great job considering.

If you want perfect life like graphics then you do actually get just a 'game' because all the computing power can go into making it look pretty, not into actually doing a great job of trying to simulate the driving experience.

I must admit though, tv didnt do a great job of showing the true graphics of the sim. I think it may have been due to server limitations and of course there was some warping which is typing of online gaming.

I gave up after the first race. I think eSports have a big future but just not sure simulated car racing is going to set the world on fire. Didn’t see any instant consequences for accidents, cars seemed to vanish and reappear.

I don’t play video games much anymore but if I did i would  much rather play than watch someone else play.

Yep. i enjoyed it. But i also have an iracing sub, so know how it all works too.  I watched the main broadcast on Kayo, but had twictch going with drivers ownpersonal streams going. they were more entertaining then the main broadcast. Like scotty mac, getting up to go for a piss, with 1 min to go before gridding for the last race, than getting slammed for not washing his hands whenhe got back  ;D ;D

Managed to watch the last two Wednesday nights iracing.  For a game it's not bad, as for entertainment, not bad, for racing value it falls way short of racing.  From an entertainment perspective it was okay up until Baird stepped in and tried to make it real racing.

With all of this Covid 19 Shit going on , there has been no mention from any/all of the Holden teams as too what car brand they will be running for the 2021 season .

With the new revised calendar just been released and the 2020 season going on till early February 2021 it won't be giving teams time/manpower to build new cars .

I'd say they'll be racing Holdens.
Holden is dropping their backing....no mention of banning the use of their brand of car ?
