Looks good, imo. Will be interesting to see how the screen holds up in a crash.

I wonder if this is any indication of how the F1 cars will look this year as I seem to recall Zak saying they will have a revised look?

Alonso joins McLaren (again, perhaps that should be re-join) for the Indy 500.

Great news! But seems a bold choice, picking McLaren over Andretti.

Andretti are Honda powered. Honda vetoed it.

They are so much nicer looking than current F1 cars.

Agreed that thing just looks fast like some love child of a fighter jet and car with that canopy.

Any idea if the Sky F1 channel are showing all the races again?

It's just a far more graceful and pleasing looking package.

If you think that's optimistic they're hoping to start the season at the end of May...

The IndyCar iRacing race is proving to be very good.

I've watched F1 on shoddy NowTV streams that looked worse & there are some camera angles / shots that look pretty realistic.

Plus the 2020 IndyCars with the aeroscreens look really good.

Show just how bad F1 2019 is, I haven't seen a good Codemasters racing sim since the 2 TOCA Touring car games of the 1990s.

The US series races last week and this week (IMSA, NASCAR, Indycar) have taken it seriously, as though its a 'proper' race. It adds to the feel of the event.

Enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed the IMSA race last week, and this Indycar race improved on that, also a great advert for iRacing when compared to the other less professional broadcasts (inc. F1)

Plus, I thought it played out just like a "real" IndyCar race on that sort of circuit - the race result didn't feel artificial in any respect, the field spread is pretty much what happens.

Easily the best of sim races so far.

Agreed. Really enjoying the races and make the effort to watch the whole coverage, the invocation and national anthem makes me smile and chuckle at how much effort has been put into it.

1) Choosing a good stable multiplayer platform.
2) Having all professional racers, no celebs.
3) By mimicking a real race day they have an established routine and look to the race that doesn't seem out of place.
4) Taking it seriously.
