V8 Fireworks should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Virtual Supercars racing (e-series)

I think the Indycar iRacing example shows that properly done virtual racing with the real drivers and liveries, and with the regular commentators, can seem quite professional: https://youtu.be/HppJd3803n4

So hopefully the Supercars iRacing series will turn out alright as well.

Given the situation the world finds itself in, this wasn't too bad. Would be way more fun if we could see the drivers on their sims. A competition caution wouldn't have hurt either.

SO who watched?

Was funny, interesting and would love to try it.

I will keep an eye on it, but wont fret if I miss one/some/alot!

Some drivers looked more experienced (younger generation) where as the older guys with less E-series knowledge looked disinterested.

Im guessing this is a mandatory series? (great for Teams and any sort of TV Exposure)

Alot of guys had interesting sponsorship, advertising props set up for TV crosses.

Pit reporting and driving standards adviser, serious stuff !!!

Rick Kelly's Fluffy Steering Wheel cover looked the goods

When can I watch?

From what I can tell from the articles, theyíre all running static setups rather than full motion simulator rigs, which is a shame.

Hard to understand the value in it. And yes I watched.

Some of the simulator jockeys seemed more intent on making the biggest and most spectacular accidents rather than demonstrating the cut & thrust of racing.

Although the commentators seemed to be on a mission to hype it up. Hard.

COVID19 has a LOT to answer for!

Watched it,but its all a bit silly when a car has a monster crash,that would have destroyed it in real life,then keeps on driving...
Also when the cars pit and they drive through each other.
Its was fairly realistic though because I also fell asleep while watching it just like I do with the real thing...

I tried to like it. Really tried.

But when Frosty got annihilated off the start in Monza and ended up 2nd behind the lap one safety car I gave it away.

Having spent (wasted?) countless hours on NASCAR Racing 2003, the predecessor of iRacing, I wonder how much they have approved the models.

In NASCAR Racing 2003 none of what you describe is possible without resorting to playing basically an arcade mode.

Agreed totally.
Quite laughable but trying to satisfy the fans I guess.

Likewise, I had a good laugh.

I found it far more enjoyable than I was expecting, to be honest. The production was good and although some bits seemed like nonsense, it wasn't bad for a first crack.

70,000 people watched on fox sports, plus all those who streamed the racing. A solid start.

Video games can be fun to watch IMO!

The webcams were a good touch that Indycar didn't have.
