Playsport Games and SEGA Publishing Europe have released a short 4 minute 27 second video showcasing some of the action at a recent media day held at the Bedford Autodrome in England.

The team behind the newest management simulation took a couple of spec Formula 4 cars around the famous autodrome course and spent time discussing the fine details around top level motorsport management. Sadly I had no idea this event was taking place, so couldn't apply for media accreditation... sorry about that!

The aim of the game on the day was to simulate some of the key decisions around managing your own racing team, as found in the new Motorsport Manager title, and apply your decisions to the real world cars in a quest to see who comes out on top on the track at the end of the day. Media and community members had a chance to get involved in some hands on action with the new game, and pit their wits against each other in Motorsport Manager.

This will likely be a first day (or soon thereafter) purchase for me.

What I'm really hoping to see is a game with the same basic mechanics and high degree of polish as the mobile version, but with better depth and more variations in strategy.

The mobile version to me is a really, really well done "proof-of-concept". I am hoping the PC version will build upon this and become the racing management game a lot of us have been hoping for.

Aarava (youtube channel from the above video) has done 4 videos on this game now i think, it looks amazing! I'm hanging out for it. I pre-purchased it the other day, was US$27. If your into this kind of game but unsure of buying it, watch his videos and you will be able to decide.

Also, the "Motorsport Manager" facebook group has 3 videos on it which covers off a lot of the content too.

Im super looking forward to this. Although not a deal breaker, I really hope someone will mod it to have some real teams, drivers, sponsors, engines etc etc. Love the idea of bringing back a retired World Champion against a youngster with a silly engine choice.

My team would be:

Team Principle - Ross Brawn
Cheif Engineer - Rob Smedley
Engine - Suzuki
Driver 1 - Jacques Villeneuve
Driver 2 - Paul Di Resta
Third Driver - Esteban Ocon
Test Driver - Nigel Mansell ;)

I have seen that they are going to open the steam workshop so that should take all of an hour before you see real teams and a day or so before someone makes an app to create your own.

Something that peaked my interest was that someone mentioned their intention to create a WEC mod which I would be all over!
