    Those paddel-shifters are noisy and the game seems laggy. Are all GPU-cards dedicated bitcoin mining? Finally, I really miss the shed acoustics. BTW. it was a good race at Silverstone.

    Very Nice Rig, Almost spot-on same as the view from inside the car as well.....Nice job, Good effort all-round.....Now, where did I leave that 7K again, it's laying around here somewhere !?!? Only negatives that jumped out at me were..... 1. The sound of the Paddle Gear-Box, it sounded Really Cheap 'N' Nasty everytime you changed gear (hopefully it sounds better irl !?).....Made me Cringe !! 2. This one REALLY let down the Whole thing.....That Ugly-Ass Gandad Cardigan you were wearing for the beginning of the video NEEDS to be Burnt To Ash, Seriously man, you need to sort that out and NEVER wear it/one again !! !! Keep Up the Great Work Jim.....Keep On Driving !!

    For me this is the most interesting part of race car drivers, how they prepare. Raceroom has the Silverstone International track just not the Praga. Assetto Corsa has the older Praga of course and the Silverstone International circuit. I wonder what made them use AMS with a custom car and the Silverstone with the wrong circuit. It clearly did not matter as you prepared well and did well at the track on race day. I hope they release the car model at least. The Praga is an amazing car and it looks like having the right model is all you needed.

    hi Jimmy , sorry if you explained it already (that I may have missed then) , but why prep with triples and not VR ? Wouldn't VR be a better prep? Cheers, Ed

    It is mental how successful average joes have become through social media. Watching Jimmy a few years ago I would have never thought he would ever be doing something like this. It's mental! Kudos to you though, you know your stuff, you're interesting and you've worked hard for if. And you have great hair. If I'm honest I'm most jealous of your hair.

    Not a knock on this, but just very curious: is there a reason why you guys did not go VR? I assume most of it has to do with trying to build environment, but I would imagine that having a VR set up would be more immersive, give you parallax so you have a real sense of being on course with the car in that environment, plus shut out ambient light/surroundings. A.k.a. more realistic.
