born again simracer

Discussion in 'Introduce Yourself' started by Amitesh Rao, Jan 13, 2015.

  1. Hello.
    Been simracing for 18 odd years - GP 2, GP3, GP4, F1Challenge 99-02, rFactor, GTL, GTR Evo, Race07... been through them all. After a couple of years hiatus, I'm hooked all over again - now to Assetto Corsa (its sensational!) and SRW (less pretentious, small but interesting community).
    Over the years I've moved from keyboards to joysticks to wheels... bought a Momo Force 8 years ago, which is what I still use. (I know, I know... its high time i upgraded, a G27's on the cards).

    I have literally thousands of simracing hours under my belt, though a lot of it has been offline against AI (where i come from, internet connectivity was either inconsistent or just not there at all, and you couldn't get licensed versions of simracing games for love or money). Its a damn sight different now thankfully.

    Am a middling to average driver with a competitive instinct, though I'd rather let you by than slam you into a wall.

    Btw, simulation has even been a profession - I used to make and market marine simulators at some point (though somehow I never got into the modding scene), and even now I am involved with the business end of gaming.

    Joining RD hoping to find a community where I'd feel comfortable, one that has a bunch of equally middling to average drivers to race against, and a few aliens to gaze at in awe.

    Hopefully this is it :)

  2. Apparently it isn't. Not yet at least. :(

    Bummer, applications for licenses aren't being accepted.
    There must be a quota for the elderly. No?
    For developing countries then. Or for Asia. No?
    Surely for Hindu's. Not that either?

    welcome friend, i think if u check the forum you will notice , that Dennis sent you a message notifying about obtaining a license, " take note that work is being done about License and Premium members" Just be patient
  4. Thanks for the reply John... I did find Dennis's message, though it wasn't to me. Patience it is :)
