What makes a group of like minded sim racers become a real community?

John Hill offers a few ideas along with his own experience as part of iRacing's Lotus 79 Classic Team Championship series.

A virtual orgy of Lotus on Lotus violence wraps up this latest edition of "Over The Hill."

Inside info;  The crashes shown here are part of our hosted Monday morning Lotus 79 mini-races.  After we cross the finish line we aim for maximum damage.....on each other.  No IR or SR were harmed in the making of this video.

Since this video was filmed the Book and Hat have made their way into the hands of Ben Chadwick and here is a picture of him with the Lotus 79 CTC group's own version of the travelosity Gnome.

I love the way the guys at CTC take things so seriously.  It really adds to the realism of the sim and the racing.  And when the seaons ends to be part of the trophy celebration really puts it over the top for me.  The trophy going around remindsme of hockey and of how each of the players will get some time with the Stanley Cup.  Way to go CTC in leading the way on how it is to be done.    Great video John.

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.
