Back in Action

I have to say, commentating felt great after this loooong time off. I was in the last 2 and something hours of the 4 hour IGTC race on saturday, commentating. And that felt great. It was a lot of fun and due to a pacecar phase 10 minutes before the end of the race we had a lot of action in the battle for Position 2. Great stuff and I'm looking forward to the next race! Check out the league and stream etc. here:

The egg or the chicken?

Due to some recent events I came to some interesting question:

Guys who played a lot of racing sims and are really really good in it seem to have an easy entry into real life motorsports, if they get an opportunity. Taking Norbi Kiss as the major example, but also some guys who now entered the german OPC Race Camp seem to have a very very good start there. So my question: Are they that good in racing sims, because they have an overall good racing talent and would also be good in those real life racing things without playing race games? Or are those racing sims - our beloved genre - a real good practice? Improve the talents of those racers and give a decent feel for the car and ideas for how to react to fast occuring race situations?

I have an idea, but I don't really know it by now... First lets see, how far our young guys will get :)

This is the return...

... of the space cowboy. Well, it seems like I'll be back. And roumours say, that there might be a return to LFS community too. Not racing, but where else shall I prove that I'm a good one? ;) Stay tuned...
