The RaceDepartment Podcast (S1, E10) - Anniversary Special

RD Podcast Out Now Ep10.jpg

Anniversary edition time! The special #askRD 10th show anniversary episode of our new Podcast is now live!

Breaking from the usual format, the RD Podcast team have reached out to the community and requested you submit your most pressing questions to the team, and in this one-off episode, we try to give those questions a semi-coherent answer!

For this episode Paul Glover, Davide Nativo and Paul Jeffrey line up in the virtual booth and give you our thoughts and opinions, all whilst celebrating the (admittedly quite small) milestone of reaching ten Podcast episode releases! 10!

It’s been a great journey so far, and thank you to all who have listened, downloaded and supported us so far in this new adventure – roll on many more to come in future…

As always, a big thanks to @RasmusP for his mightily appreciated help with the audio!

Thanks to the entire RD Podcast team for taking our questions and giving thoughtful responses! Great insights on sim e-sports and what is working well for large inclusive communities of virtual racers. :thumbsup:

I was also at the same wet race at Silverstone as @Paul Glover when the Ferraris were spinning after exiting Luffield over and over. I think I was at Woodcote... been a while so memory is a little hazy.

Thanks for answering our questions taking the time to go through them and for discussing them in the podcast. It's a great time to be a sim racer I think! :thumbsup:

Good pod again guys! Enjoyed all the discussions. Also is Davide a politician? as he’s really good at swerving the question :roflmao:

I think I should elborate on my question as when you read it out I realised I didn’t flesh it out very well!

Yes, I can’t match LeClercs time around Austria in time trial mode on F1 2019 but I was able to match Seb Vettels time from 2018 on F1 2018. So I guess this is just a sign that the game has got harder.

I think ‘stressed out’ was the wrong term for me to use. I still get enjoyment from whatever sim or game I’m playing, just that I do look at the real laps to compare! Guess I just need to get good! Haha.

Keep up the great work! :thumbsup:

Really how do you guys listen and drive? I really get carried away by the driving itself, I usually don't even recall what music was played on the radio >.<

Great pod cast guys.

@Paul Glover thank goodness @Paul Jeffrey was there to salvage my question. It was only when I heard you read it out I thought, "ah I probably haven't explained that as well as I could have".

I should have said I predominantly play offline. And the question was also based on an incident in the 96 minutes of le mans race recently. I was taken out by a move that would never have been attempted in real life it was just too unsafe.

I would just love a sim where you can't esc and return to pits. And you have to ease your way to the limit. Not just hoon it out on practice one in to a wall and restart session, or restart a race.

Maybe it is just me but I would love a Motorsport replication.

Thanks for answering my questions, I appreciate it. I also look forward to drivers stats bieng kept here at RD, my years at Race2Play spoiled me so I need it. Anyway you guys are doing a great job with the podcasts, keep up the good work. I do have a criticism of something Paul said about changes he would like to see in F1. But I will save it for another day:sneaky:, thanks again guys.
