    Community Question | Which Fantasy Track Would You Build In Real Life?

    Imagine you had all the money in the world, and decided to build yourself a racetrack - not any racetrack, but an exact replica of one of the many fantasy tracks available within the world of virtual motorsport. That's the question raised to me by RaceDepartment user @Ofitus21 earlier today...

    Community Question | Have You Ever Run An Endurance Race?

    I love endurance racing! But does our community? By endurance racing, I mean an event over 4 hours in racing time - either as a solo driver, or part of a larger driving team. Personally I think 4 hours is a sprint, but hey, we have to put a limit on the article somewhere, don't we? The...

    Community Question | Which Continent Hosts Your Favourite Tracks?

    Racetracks are everywhere in the world. Big name or national the choices are near endless. With such a selection available, which continent has the largest collection of your favourite? Old school or modern? Fast and flowing or tight and technical? A mix of both? Well known and famous or...

    Community Question | FFB or No FFB?

    Technology allows an amazing array of different Force Feedback wheels in sim racing nowadays, but some argue racing without can be quicker... which do you prefer? Are you all about the immersion experience and want your wheel to "talk" to you about the car on the virtual circuit, or do you...

    Community Question | Who Here Uses A Dedicated 'Sim Rig'?

    Sim racing setups come in all different shapes and sizes - what's yours? An individuals' sim racing circumstances are all very different to each other, from those who have the space for a dedicated setup, to those of us who need to keep things mobile in order to fit around our everyday...

    Community Question | Win With Ease, Or Fight For Last?

    More questions for you all! I'd like to know your preference when racing online - are you someone that needs the big result, or do you prefer a hard fight lower down the order? It's an obvious choice in real world professional motorsport - the whole aim of the game is to come out at the front...

    Community Question | Who Here Uses VR, And Why?

    Sim racing is far more than just the simulations themselves - a long, wide and varied array of hardware can be used to enhance your experience, and one such device is VR - but who here uses it on a regular basis? VR - otherwise known as Virtual Reality, brings with it the ability to place a...

    Community Question | Light or Dark?

    Similar to our recent question about weather, an interesting mix of responses got me thinking about time of day (yes, I'm sad like that) - and if we all enjoy racing at night? We asked about the rain or shine and now is a question about the time... lol, that's it for rhymes I promise... On a...

    Community Question | Wet or Dry?

    Question time! In this new post, I'd like to know how much love our RaceDepartment community have for racing in less than ideal conditions... We've all seen the comments over the years of "no rain, no buy" or variations on the theme - heck, a few short years ago that was pretty much all one...

    Community Question | Strangest Bug You Have Seen In Sim Racing?

    Community question time.. must be a slow news day then... this time it comes from my colleague Mr. Paul Glover - what's the strangest bug you've seen in sim racing? Computer games are renowned for having little quirks that pop up from time to time, regardless of the best intentions of the...

    Community Question | What Racing Series Would You Most Like To See Made Into A Sim?

    We have many exceptional simulations available on the market that cover a wide range of content - but if a new game was developed with just one series in mind, which series would you like it to be? I'm more than aware that a mixed bag of various content in a racing sim is loved by sim racers...

    Community Question | Why Do You Find F1 Interesting?

    F1 fan? I want to ask you something if you are (also interested to know why if you aren't a fan). It's community question time again, and this one is around the current generation of Formula One racing, and why you do (or don't) find the sport interesting in recent years. I've been a Grand...

    Community Question | What Stops You From Racing Online?

    Sim racing is arguably at its very best when racing against real people in a tightly fought online battle - yet only a very small percentage of players choose to head into a server and race against their fellow community drivers. Made up fact time. Around 90% of those who own racing...

    Community Question | Do You Still Regularly Play 'Old' Sims?

    Sim Racing has been around for a while, and a few golden oldies really captured the imagination 10+ years ago - but do any of them still enjoy regular play time in your day-to-day sim racing?

    Community Question | How Long Have You Been A Sim Racer?

    With the recent increase in exposure for our hobby thanks to the worldwide lockdown, I'm curious to know how long our community has been sim racing. For me, I've been a racing fan for the entirety of my life, but a relative latecomer to the world of virtual motorsport entertainment. Starting my...

    Community Question | Do You Wear Gloves To Sim Race?

    I'll readily admit - I'm a big fan of glove usage when on my racing rig - what's your opinion on the subject? Initially I started out with the idea of wearing gloves to protect my various wheel rims from unnecessary wear and tear and to avoid any kind of water damage should my palms get too...

    Community Question | Your Favourite Shifting Method

    How do you like to shift in sim racing? Manual, automatic, paddle, heel and toe, sequential - the choices are plentiful! Of course the shifting method very much depends on the type of car in use - but I'm sure that like me you normally have a 'type' that is preferable given the choice - but...
