Cory, somebody's been listening to your requests. They said on facebook that it's sim focused, stages will take 1-2 hours depending on navigation and they're working with real competitors to refine the physics. I hope this turns out to be everything it can be, and not a POS.

DAKAR!!!! YES! I hope the game is better than the trailer makes it appear, but I'm hopeful. Yes, I'd prefer a baja and/or trophy truck type race, but any kind of point-to-point offroad race absolutely has my interest!!

omg WANT!





The National Corvette Museum now offers visitors of any age the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a Corvette for a fun and exciting racing experience. The racing simulator uses a real C6 Corvette for the cockpit, and is surrounded by three screens to provide the racetrack’s visuals. Additionally, the car is equipped to engage in life-like movements during the experience.
While the Corvette is currently clad in LeMans Blue, in the coming weeks it will be wrapped and decaled to resemble the Corvette Racing C6.R – with decals coming straight from the Pratt & Miller team.
Drivers get to select from three Corvettes to drive: a C6 Grand Sport Convertible, C7 Stingray Coupe, and Corvette Racing C7.R. While the simulator’s software offers a number of track layouts, plus day and night settings to choose from, visitors can currently drive Monza for their session.
Sessions are $10 each, lasting approximately four minutes in length. There is no age restriction to drive, though participants need to be able to reach the pedals and steering wheel. Passengers are welcome.
The Museum is open daily, 8am-5pm Central Time. Participation in a session on the simulator is separate from Museum admission.
Purchase of the simulator is thanks to the many Corvette and Museum enthusiasts who contributed to the 501(c)(3) non-profit’s fall 2017 giving campaign.

I lucked up and had an easy day of working from home today, so I got some time to practice (in the correct car ), and think I have a decent setup for tonight, we'll see.

Congrats to you as well for the podium in the Corvette League race!

I've kinda given up on this season. I've tried and I can't drive the Mercedes. I'm having zero fun in it. Maybe I'll run when we switch cars and I can run a Ferrari again.

I wondered where you went last night. Thanks Tim, it was an intense battle between me and Rossitron for second/third. Hell, when the white flag waived, it felt like it hadn't been anywhere near 30 minutes. Last night was some of the best racing I've ever had, period.

I'll have to log onto the CF and watch the highlights replay.

I don't recognize the name Rossitron. Another newbie?

Wow. Then the Rossi part of his name fits him well.

^^I saw that on Reddit a few weeks ago. Could have got in on the pre-order price. But damn, that's a big gamble.
