Glenn McGee has successfully made the transition from sim racer to real life pro racer.  He competes in the Battery Tender Global MX-5 after winning the Mazda Road to 24 shootout and the $100,000 prize towards his racing efforts. 

We have heard from Glenn McGee after that competition and again during his pro debut.  On this weekend he was here for a very special race. This race would feature the now Mazda MX-5 regular and former iRacing champion Glenn McGee as well as the new iRacing champion and new Real Life phenom Kamil Franczak.  Both of these sim racers were invited to go against the best of the best MX-5 drivers in the world hand selected by Mazda.

During that weekend and immediately following the first of two races he took the time to talk with us about how he has grown as a racer since we last talked.

While I can't imagine wanting an Hyundai interior, it is very well done and looks incredible. Well done.

I like War Thunder, it has some real decent triple screen graphics and sound for flying the airplanes. I prefer the bombers at Arcade Battle rating, but some of the radial engined fighters are a lot of fun too. Other than that, I am an avaid truck driver driving a lot in American Truck Simulator and European Truck Simulator 2. They even have some really good multiplayer for both games, the ETS2 has a Winter mod built in, it looks like Winter with snow on everything and falling. Both games even have a short range "cb radio" that works in line of sight, you just set the microphone in the game and then it goes to a hot mike and people can hear you, but if you get out of sight, you can't hear each other. Now I wish other games would get the technology and incorporate it.
