I'm still listening through it but Davide made a really good point (don't mean to giver him a big head ;)). I think we do need more complete series for car groups to engage more users. It's not only more pleasing to the eyes to see different manufacturers of cars racing around, but watching and racing unique characteristics of each is a blast. Hopefully we see more of that in the future.

Keep up the great work guys.
Will i-racing ever come to console? Probably not but even if it didn't, I doubt the reason is because consoles couldn't handle the processing power needed.

If they could run MSFS on console, surely they can run i-Racing. :)
