About us & FAQ

We are a group of sim racers at the University of Waterloo.

FAQ

Q: What is sim racing?

A: Sim racing is short for simulation racing. Sim racing is a niche within the racing games umbrella and focuses heavily on the simulation aspect of the game. For example, sims focus on tire models, tire wear, track accuracy and more. 

Q: What make sim racing fun?

A: Any car enthusiast with an interest in racing should at least try sim racing. Sim racing gives you the opportunity to drive on laser scanned tracks from real life such as the infamous Nordschleife and you will see how slow you are compared to those lap records you hear about. Moreover, it teaches you about the car via car setups which should be tuned to each car/track and to driving styles.

Q: What games do you guys play?

A: iRacing (IR) and Assetto Corsa (AC) are the most popular however rFactor 2 (RF2), Project Cars 2 (PC2) and Richard Burns Rally (RBR) are all great sims.

Q: What kind of hardware do I need?

A: Contrary to popular belief, sim racing games are not graphically intensive and hence do not require a full blown gaming rig to run. A Dell XPS 15 with a GTX 1050 can run AC and IR at medium-high settings at stable 60FPS+. However, you will need a wheel and pedal set for the immersion and ease of use while playing these games.
