Re: Racing games/sims

On the contrary. Having spoken with the other mods, given the rise of Sim racing on streaming channels and it being a gateway to the sport, it seems sensible to have a thread specifically for serious racing games / sim racing games. So this thread may as well serve as it. But it should be for serio...

How can they "punish" the people told to box ?

Add 23 to 27 seconds to their times ?

It's not right after the race has finished.

The stewards should have picked this up immediately, now is too late.

Anything from a 5 second to 25 second time added on to he race time.
