    "The scope of this article isn’t to have a perfect matching between real car and simulated car output, no matter what it needs to reach this goal, although it could be pretty easy to do by “tricking” somehow the model until output data is matching perfectly to real car data logging. What I want to analyze here is how close the results we could obtain in a cheap driving simulation software could be to the real thing if we input data that we believe being trustable and accurate when building the model itself."

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    Thanks for sharing this very interesting article, makes you realise just how close we're actually getting to the real thing in our sim-races, providing the data is correct of course.

    Cheers
