Part 1

***DISCLAIMER-This interview was done via the internet and has audio/video sync issues***

The Simpit has been following the story of Glenn McGee, the sim racing phenom who has turned a virtual racing championship into a real life pro racing career.

Kamil Franczak is an "Alien" level sim racer who is the European equivalent to Glenn and is making that same sort of transition.  He recently won the iRacing MX-5 Global Championship and was awarded a chance to take on some of the best Real Life Mazda drivers from Europe head to head.  He won that competition as well and is now flying to America to take on the best MX-5 drivers from there including Glenn McGee.

Shaun Cole of The Simpit sits down and talks with Kamil about everything from sim racing to the competitions that he has been winning.

**We are very sorry but this interview had massive audio/video sync issues.  We almost decided to not air it, but we also felt that the content was still worthy.  So after a week of extra editing, we are airing the best version of this interview that we can produce.  It also required being broken into 2 parts - here is part two:

TP needs some updating. It is not very intuitive for new users. Instructions are hard to follow at times. Support response is in need of someone's dedication. Having individual paints is a real attraction within iRacing. This needs to be done better or replaced! â€‹Interesting that without member support there would be no answers or help. It's a shame, the program is so popular not to have good management.

I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?
