    Check out Shaun Cole's in-depth interview with SimBin Licencing Manager and Reference Coordinator Jay Ekkel, where they discuss the company, R3E and all things sim racing.

    Simbin has for a long time been a fixture of the sim racing community as the makers of some of the most recognizable racing titles ever made. GTR, GTR2, GT Legends, Race 07 and Raceroom are just some of those games. Recently Simbin has been in the news with rumors of bankruptcy, closing up shop or some form of restructuring. With that going on Shaun Cole of The Simpit was able to sit down via Skype with Jay Ekkel, the licencing manager for Simbin. They talk about the company, its past, its future and a little bit of general sim racing talk.

  6. I think Jay is already regretting that he said September 9th.

    Or they will surprise us and announce the update on September 8th. :p
     
  7. During the twitch-stream they said, that they are right in time with the update.

    PS: And why there are 2 threads of the same topic? Perhaps an admin could merge them.
