Perfectly safe, they followed up on the idea of multiple races at one location.
But something feels a bit off, maybe they muffled those microphones again?

To echo what other posters in this thread have said. It's unkind to say that m-sports are not real sports, I think it's just a generational thing where if you haven't grown up with then you don't appreciate that it's a true skill!

We shouldn't really say that m-sports athletes are not true athletes either, crank the force (against gravity) up high enough and boy does one build up a sweat!

this is actually too good to be just an April's fool day joke.
Brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed that. Real racing by marbles. Better than fake e-racing! =D>

You can't really compare marbles from different eras.

Finishing races is important, but racing is more important.

i just watched some Esports on Sky, why is the sound so feeble? it's a dull drone that goes up and down a bit! Surely they could sample and synth it and make it sound amazing

Leclerc was dominant today - interesting to see how this one played out pretty much like a real race with little to no silliness. Russel and Giovanazzi decently fast but interesting how someone like Leclerc can get a rig 8 days ago and dominate.

This is the future...

My only hope is that instead of another Codemasters sh1t-show, that F1 moves towards an official custom mod pack for rFactor2.

He also called Max who said the game was a joke and said he'd never join that, he also kinda talked Lando into uninstalling it by saying "throw it in the bin" (good advice btw)

I wonder what would times look like if they are forced to use cockpit cam.

This is where most league rules come in.

TC/ABS on/off
Fixed camera
Fixed car performance
Fixed tyre performance
Damage on/off

The league I once participated with had the best damage rules however. Full damage on front wing, no damage on sides or the rear. That kept everyone very honest, but one tweaker didn't ruin the race of those in front.

Aww, made me smile :D

At least the WRC got a few events out of the way, and with no minimum events for a championship it could already have been decided....
