Here’s me running 4th in my #26 Dollar General Toyota Camry at Nashville Fairgrounds in the ARCA league I run every Wednesday. I dropped to 18th after serving a drive-through for too many incident points but recovered to 11th out of 26 runners.

I’m keeping my Camry.

Apparently this guy is a "prominent sim racing YouTuber" which seems damning him with faint praise. Anyway, he was in my league race on Wednesday and here's him streaming it, and he's reasonably entertaining. You see him divebombing up the side of me on lap 1, then he drives past my stricken car around the 13-minute mark after I changed down too quickly into the last chicane and spun into the wall. I'm not a very good road racer so didn't have huge expectations for this race, but apart from that moment was pretty enjoyable!

I've seen a few of his videos, as you say quite entertaining and seems like a decent enough sort. Also he's somehow able to drive pretty well and commentate at the same time which can't be all that easy.

Interesting article about the appeal of iRacing on Eurogamer, today.

Yep, a pretty accurate portrayal. Sadly it didn’t have day/night transitions back when I was doing endurance racing. We’d do Le Mans in permanent afternoon and Daytona at permanent nighttime :D
