Hi guys. The concept of sim racing was beautifully articulated in this module. Even though I have been using sim racing to practice for years together, I was not able to explain how it would benefit in real world driving. Thank you for explaining it with such clarity.

Coming to the question, as you practice over long period of time, everyone would hit a wall. No matter how hard we try, we won't be able to improve the time or may run 10 microsecond faster than our previous best. I use iracing, Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizone for Circuit and endurance and sometimes practice Dirt Rally 2.

So at this situation, i feel simracing would still benefit us if we are using data logging and analyzing it by varying car setup, conditions of same and different track or weather changes. If you guys can elaborate on how to make use of data logged by a sim software in a way that would make sense in real world conditions, it would be really helpful. Even though the analysis follow the same steps, the variables in real world would definitely result in different outcome.

Once again thank you for this amazing content. I really enjoyed every bit of it.

Looking forward for your answer.

Hi Suhas,

Thanks for the good question. It's true that data analysis can have a big impact on your sim racing. One good thing is that there are many tools out there in the market allowing you to import your sim racing logged data and analyse it in conventional motorsport software analysis tools.

We actually have a plan to add a worked example for our Data Analysis Fundamentals course all based around Sim Racing. Overall, this will be a lot more useful than me trying to write something out here, so keep an eye out for that!

Sure. That sounds interesting. Thanks
