    So many new sim rigs out there

    Just a little observation really, there seems to be a lot of guys out there that are starting to set up dedicated sim rigs either on PC, PS4 or XBone. There are threads all over this forum with people buying wheels, building their own rig, some real man cave action going on.

    It's great to see so many people getting into sim racing and doing the job right, and I can't think of another game that has inspired so many to take it to the next level.

    So, Happy Christmas to everyone that has made the leap from pad to wheel, and may you enjoy many happy hours of racing (even though your significant other might be p***ed off at no longer being the centre of attention)

    I am hoping this Christmas is when I get my first wheel.

    This is the first racing game ever that has compelled me to buy one.

    If it weren't for Project CARS i wouldn't be where i am today with my simracing and building of a complete rig.

    To the ones that uses gamepads in this game, buy a descent wheel. You will not regret it.
