Within the next few years, it will be common place for real race drivers to practice on sims like iRacing. Not everyone has access to expensive team simulators, and even if they did, it still makes sense to have your own home simulator.

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?

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?
