What is Sim Racing?

Sim Racing is the short form of "simulated racing" and describes a separate esports category. As the name suggests, this genre is all about reflecting real racing as accurately as possible - including possible variables such as fuel consumption, tyre wear, and vehicle setups.

Sim racing also allows the paths of 'ordinary' students like us to cross paths with professional racing drivers such as Max Verstappen, Lando Norris and Charles Leclerc as they hone their skills.
