A trailer has been shared for The Sim Racer movie, which prominently features a competitive sim racing tournament.
We're learning more about a movie that signifies sim racing hitting the mainstream. A new feature film from writer and director Brock Drury tells a story of a man attempting to pay down a debt by winning money in a sim race, and we now have a trailer for the film.
The trailer was released to The Sim Racer movie's website and Twitter account and shows the character of Luke Wallace, played by Roman Jacob Boylen, on hard times. He hopes to pay off his $9,600 debt by winning $20,000 in an iRacing tournament. The trailer also clearly shows Wallace donning a VR helmet. The official website of The Sim Racer movie offers a synopsis of the movie, and merchandise if you want to support the project.
It wasn't clear from the trailer or the official Twitter account of the movie when, or on which platforms, we'll be able to watch The Sim Racer. However we get to see it, this should be further validation of our hobby, or at least another means of spreading the word of the challenges of virtual racing.
