Average of 2 hours, five days per week. As I can't commit a certain time of day I'm just racing AI, so the quality of AI and customized championship options are important to me. As far as settings, given my limited time I only make minor adjustments and most of them are suggested by forum members.
There needs to be an option of "not often enough." I answered once a week but that is generous with my availability to race. Lately the only race I've had time for is the Dirt Rally 2.0 championship that has started up again. Someday I will have enough time again to race other people.
Speaking of this subject we need more US race clubs!
When I'm in a league, it's an hour or so for a race and an hour or so to prep for each race. I can reliably get on 3-4 nights/week if I want to. But I also have other stuff going on and I enjoy some other games too. For example, I finally finished Doom Eternal, which I enjoyed quite a bit.
I do really enjoy it, but I find that after a couple of hours I've had enough. Maybe that's also because I only race in VR, so I get pretty warm and tired.
Friday night is movie time with my wife, Saturday and/or Sunday night after my children go to bed is my hot lapping and race the AI time. About 3 - 4 hours each time, juggling between AMS2, rF2, AC and ACC.
Checking for news and new mods on GTP, RD, Bsimracing and somewhere else: Everyday even at work
I try to hop in nearly every day even if it's just for 10-15 mins (and not always sims but also old arcade titles like Sega Rally); plus teaching from home this year allows me to get that done more frequently than ever before (more like 1 hour/day minimum these days), but before that It'd be about 4 - 5 days/week. Married with no kids, so that helps lol
Interesting thread, I always feel like I barely get any seat time relative to most simmers, so it's good to read I'm not the only one. I work full time and am married, but no kids. I have agreed 'gaming nights' on Tue/Thu/Sun, so I get to be on from 7-8pm ish until whenever I start falling asleep. That covers all my gaming though so only part of it is at the wheel. It makes iRacing very difficult as often I can only fit in 1 scheduled race in an evening, meaning 3 per week, and if I get punted out of at least one, it becomes very depressing!
