Are You Faster On A Sim Or In Reality?

Simulators have come a long way in the last 10 years, but the question still remains; are you as fast in real life as on a ‘computer’? Well, we wanted to find out! Luckily, the Drift Games team has access to a state-of-the-art sim rig, a race circuit and a couple of M-Powered BMWs.

The concept was easy; can you put in a similar lap time on the track and the si, rig? Mike, Dave and Josh were each tasked with picking a BMW (or in Josh’s case a MINI) and trying to match their sim lap time with a real lap around the track.

Sounds easy, right? Well, the Mondello Park circuit was extremely slippy and we had well over €200,000 worth of cars on the line. Scary stuff indeed! Check out what went down and if we could match our times now in the video down below.

So, have you ever checked out just how real-life a racing simulator can feel? Don’t forget to check out our friends at the Virtual Race Academy and also don’t forget to subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss a single video.
