E-Sports

From each challenge arises an opportunity. With the COVID19 epidemic shutting down most of our entertainment options, folks may tune-in to simulated sports to fill the void. From the racing scene, several sanctioning bodies are broadcast simulating racing competitions with real-life drivers and commentators. I expect these celebrities to introduce e-sports to a broader audience. Here's a few announcements that I found for the auto racing series that I follow.

    I'm watching live & also recording it just in case. It's been an enjoyable broadcast early on.


    Curious to see the ratings for this broadcast given that actual NASCAR have been on the decline.

    The broadcast team is doing a good job keeping this interesting through the cautions. Just heard they even have paid sponsors for the livery.

    They certainly have the personalities to keep their broadcasts lively.

    Clint Bowyer is probably the best in car interview, simulation or IRL.

    It's great to hear the announce team call this race as an actual race. It really matters & goes a long way.
