    Digital yes, printed no. Paper is so 1980 :)
  3. agree with Bram, digital is my choice,

    It's like home telephone, it's as old as the earth and not really needed now cellphones and skype for computers etc.
  4. I still use a home phone :(

    It's a nice idea but it's a niche market and I don't think it would take off on paper. Best media would be digital IMO considering that Simracing is a digital-only activity......

    It's an interesting idea.
    I'm also involved in FlightSimming and there are two well known Flight Sim mags that sell quite well, PC Pilot and Computer Pilot. These are bi-monthly.
    Admittedly, FlightSimming is way more extensive than SimRacing and appeals to a wider age bracket of users, and is supported by a huge aftermarket Flight Sim addon industry. To offset that though, the number of base Flight Sim software options is quite limited compared to Sim Racing.
    I'd probably support a Sim Racing Mag if the content was useful and interesting. But then again, I was born before 1980. :whistling:
