    Given this announcement link: RoboRace

    Might be interesting to see something different

    This would be the future of the Real Racing, but not of the Sim Racing. ;)

    Which, by definition, will make sim racing historic only...in the long run at least. Doesn't matter anyway because nothing past 1960's is worth driving anyway.

    Any activity that a person enjoys doing will never be fully replaced by robots.

    Because the activity requires a willing partner ..... at least if it is done in a legal fashion. :p

    I had same idea for remote control cars decades ago using with lightweight cameras

    You could do it at local track or from home ie: rent a car and track time.


    You could have a business people log in pay for a hour track time and attendants look after the cars.

    Alot cheaper to build same principle....

    I like this idea. If I lose my job, we should go into business.

    Roborace is a bit different though, as you have to program the AI to react real time to the race conditions, which is not the same as having a "driver" trackside
