A lot of sponsor logos on a lot of TV screens.

That’s the point.


There’s a lot of sponsors involved who aren’t even trading right now. So keeping their names being mentioned for when we can use them again...I’d say that’s pretty important.

As exciting as they are trying to make, I dont think I will be going out of my way to record it or watch it. Might be fun in a simulator and it looks great online but the seriousness isnt there. Maybe a cash incentive might change that for the drivers.

IM crossing my fingers for any Supercars, Moto GP or F1 before the end of the year

From what I saw, it looked better than the MotoGP equivalent, which was just an embarrassment. I will wait for the eventual return of racing rather than give that effort any oxygen at all. Again, like the two examples of fiction outlined above, to see Heimgartner run very wide onto the grass exiting T12 at the end of the first lap and lose only one place would never happen, so you are instantly requested to suspend your disbelief, the polar opposite of the lurking realities of racing.

I watched again, was interested to see the F1 involvement.
I have to say I love the graphics and are impressed by the said characteristics of the cars.

However I did fast forward every race to the last lap to see the winner

Better effort last night obviously they've sorted some bugs.
The first race was good
Then I lost the plot with the reverse grid race,half the cars were destroyed in the first lap in horrific crashes....only to carry on...
Stick to the short sprint races,otherwise I find the remote wandering off to watch other channels.

Very positive article on the series and the benefits it offers the category in an article on Mumbrella here.

Great breakdown of the ratings the Eseries is generating compiled by the team at The Race Torque.

It's not my cup of tea in any way - no allowance for grip variation, no real disadvantage from going off track etc, no feeling of seeing the cars on the edge of the envelope.

For those who aren't into that stuff quite so much, it seems to work and I'm glad for the category, teams, drivers and sponsors that it IS getting eyes on it and helping to keep everything "alive".

Roll on the real deal though!

How do you figure that? These sims are quite hard, you have to rather concentrate to not crash (or spin)... I think that rather comes across.

..... I miss Simona in V8's.
On the other hand I see Will Power is also a wildcard entry for Team Penske at Bathurst.

So the spectator can see them teetering on the edge of the tyres' grip, the rubber has to be managed through the race, can see breaking points extended hyper deep with wheels a-l-m-o-s-t locking? Nah, didn't think do.

Sorry mate, each to his own - does nothing for me.

"Getting the old band back together" supposedly.

Mr Ambrose joining the grid.

Maybe they should get a Retired Series Race and bring all the old boys back. Seems this is a young guns game for sure.
