    I've been blown away by the technology of sim racing and have decided to begin a new hobby.. How well sim racing now replicates real world driving makes it incredibly enticing. Force feedback wheels, load cell pedals, laser cut tracks, etc. Have a look:

    Awesome! I'm brand new - What games can you drive the new supra?? I have no idea how any of the gaming software works. It's going to be a big learning curve for me

    The only game that I am aware of where you can by default drive the MKV Supra is "Gran Turismo Sport" on PS4.


    PC sim racing games are mostly concentrating on the GT3 leagues.
    iRacing is seen as the best online sim racing... but very expensive as it based on monthly fees (per track and per car).

    I have chosen PC2 because it is still a sim racer (not as hardcore as iRacing) with up-to-date graphics.
    And because I race for fun and it is not the only game I play (rencently started GTA online as it was made free to download the game :p)
    Costed me 90€ on steam, which includes all of the DLC's


    A nice video for comparing different PC sim racing games for beginners
