The Visa Vegas E Race was the single biggest sim racing event in history.  One million dollars was up for grabs and ten sim racers would have a shot at the money.  

Apex Racing has become one of the strongest sim racing teams in the world.  Through the leadership of Alex Simpson they have built up a driving academy and have some of the best sim racers in the game.

Apex Racing had two different drivers of the ten in the Visa Vegas E Race, Graham Carroll and Patrik Holzmann.  We had a couple of chances to talk with Alex Simpson about the event and his racers.  In one of the interview Patrik Holzmann joined our interview and gave us some insight from the drivers side of things in this competition.

During the interview we talked about this event and the pressure that this kind of money puts on normal everyday sim racing.



Here is our recap of the Visa Vegas E Race watch this video:

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!

Okay 20 minutes is too short. Make the races an hour. Can you make it w/o pitting? I don't know, but with or w/o pitting it would be fun.

Thanks for the breakdown of your driving next to the best of your race. This comparison was an eye opener to how I should be driving compared to how I am actually driving.  You keep referring to trail breaking I'm relatively new to this new IRacing,(was an original owner of the first Nascar and had spend hours upon hours doing it.)  And I just don't get how it helps or hurts your racing style, I'll keep watching thanks for the video's and keep going fast.
