    They should have stripped the car a bit. If they'd have removed the passenger and rear seats it would be possible for it to win tbh, and it wouldn't have cost any money.

    As far as I'm aware, Carlos Sainz is quite new to sim racing, and zak brown's more of a team leader than a racer... That tool needs to get down to earth! Especially because gran turismo is not a real sim by any mean, but an arcady game.. Get the gamer in the car, he'll know what real life is

    You should've stripped everything that isn't visible on the camera and put new rubber on for better grip. Yes, cheating just to wipe that smug face of that dude. Aka the Clarkson way

    Yer man is such a knob! Does anyone know if that guy has been given a try out in any of the formlae? If he was that good surely he’d be worth taking a chance on to give a drive and a bit of training? Bollox! There’s walls everywhere on that track. If he has an off it’s gonna hurt. Sim is nowhere near that type of balls! I like to think I’m quick but I wouldn’t be going as quick as him. Fair play to the guy! 👏👏👏

  • DonBismo

    yeah jack's right its not fair the sim driver could go practice on the track whenever he want he just turn on his pc and play the game but real life it wouldnt be easy to drive on a circuit whenever we want to, and the risk boy.. alex got balls to push that car to its limit, i mean they dont even change the tire, brakes, suspension, etc. it was so risky driving it on a circuit let alone it was raining

  • Lyrixc

    The £150 7 series still just chilling there

  • Motschga

    You know what you are dealing with when a "professional sim racer" uses a Logitech G923 and plays Project Cars 3... His driving didn't even seem too smooth. Would've liked to see it with someone in a comparable car in Assetto Corsa and proper Gear.

  • RIP SIC58

  • Armouredfalcon

    Professional Sim racer, playing Project cars 3, an Arcade racing game, with a logitech G923. Yeah Alex was never going to catch a dude playing an arcade game like that. Even Project Cars 2 would of been a better choice. Or any of the actual proper sims out there. I do get why he was using the logitech wheel, but theres no way in hell thats his normal sim setup. Nothing wrong with the logitech for entry level, but it'd be like turning up to a professional racing series in a road car in terms of sim racing.

    For a grand you can get 1.8 tt quattros, even the 225hp versions, in around the same condition as the megane... Almost 100% sure the awd and the aero of the TT would have helped greatly.

  • RWoody1995

    Problem I have is that he did that lap on project cars 3. Which is more like and arcade racing game then sim. Try either the first or second and then redo the challenge.

    The 'competition' was not fair, a professional sim racer will of course be quicker in a more powerful, newer RWD car with better chassis, suspension and everything, he can also push it much harder on the sim without worrying about any consequences. Alex' performance in the Clio seemed to be very good.

  • Ionuț

    A chair and a wheel on some high specked PC does not simulate a race track lap challenge scenario. Not even close. No g-forces, no risk, no nothing. You can't imagine how hard, how physically and mentally tiring it is to drive fast on a race track. You have to experience that for yourself. It looks easy, but it ain't! On a sim you only get some of the sensation, but nothing real. I've had a Logitech G27 in the past, it was really fun! But only when I went to the race track, in a real car, I realized what it actually took to drive a car fast! Great (actual) driving Alex!

    why would he not strip it of all the excess weight inside?? that is like the first thing you do for any racing car.
