These are some of the benefits of sim racing.

  • Basic Racing Skills

The best racing sim comes really close to actual driving. But skills learnt on a sim racer applied to real world driving, should be done with a grain of salt. These skills acquired in sim racing can be translated to real world driving talent. Often, ‘aliens’ that dominate the iRacing or GT simulator have gone on to race professionally, with some success. The basics skills such as cornering, accelerating, and braking can be learnt with a racing simulator.

  • Sim Racing Raises Awareness

Sim racing is hard. Just putting a few hours on a racing simulator takes a lot out of a driver. The person behind the screen will be exhausted, perspiring, and excited, as in a real life race. Racing simulators force the driver to pay attention to the entire screen, have situational awareness, and be able to respond quickly. Developing, these skills have saved some drivers in real life accidents.

  • Moderate Rash Driver Behavior

Racing games do not have any penalty for rash driving. However, the best racing sim takes a professional approach to racing. Crashing into other players or driving off the road has consequences. Players that drive rashly are eliminated, instantly. Although, a mass study is yet to be conducted, sim racers usually tend to drive safely in real life.

  • Racing Builds Team Spirit

Any racer knows that real racing involves, working in coordination with other racers, while simultaneously, trying to go as fast as possible. Pinpoint precision and accuracy is required. These skills are not just required by racers but even by organizations. Thus, simulator racing is a potential tool for team building activities.

  • It’s Bloody Fun
