The 9th episode of season 3 of the RaceDepartment podcast is out now on all major platforms and discusses the F-GT Elite, Gran Turismo 7, Virtual Le Mans and the Sim Racing Expo.
The world of sim racing is always changing and growing, and the RD podcast might just be the best way to stay on top of things. Hosts Paul, Dani and Davide break down the major news items from the world of sim racing and share long form opinions on each. This is a perfect thing to listen to on your commute, at the gym, or maybe even while you sim race.
The most recent episode discusses a variety of topics, including what we’ve seen from Steve’s Next Level Racing F-GT Elite review video. The F-GT Elite is NLR’s new flagship cockpit, and looks to be a sturdy and beautifully styled rig, albeit at a price point that could turn some people away from it.
The guys also discuss the recently announced release date for Gran Turismo. The latest installment in the GT series will surely be among the best-selling racing games this decade, but we’ll have to wait a while to get our hands on it.
The Le Man Virtual Series is on now as well. This is among the biggest eSports racing series in the world, and features some of the biggest names in sim racing competing alongside some impressive names from real world motorsports.
And the last major topic is the Sim Racing Expo. This is the best chance for fans, media and personalities from the world of sim racing to meet up and have fun face-to-face while exhibitors show off their latest wares. For many attendees, this was the first major gathering since 2019, so the mood was great, and the manufacturers were keen to show us what they’ve been working on lately.
