Here is a cool game to play
Essentially it is an online motorsport management simulator
Here is a writeup by LMcKelvin at SGS
Have you guys ever played “F1 Manager”?
If you have, and enjoyed it, try this:
If you haven’t, then this is sort of what it’s about:
You create a Formula 1 team. You choose a driver, engine, sponsor… well, basically you build a formula1 team from scratch.
You never actually “drive” the car, but have a lot of fun trying to setup a car as to how your driver wants it (he goes on a test run, says he needs more front-end downforce, you add front wing, etc)
then send him out on another test run.
Each track has a different layout, so you need to build a new setup for him for each race.
batracer is similair. The nice thing about it is you can play this from anywhere. Because this isn’t a “real game”, they use a “web browser” layout with no fancy graphics. So you can play this at work even! It takes 5-10 minutes a day to setup a car, and once that’s done, you wait. The races cycle through about 48 hours per race – (first 24 hours to setup for quali, second for race). You don’t have to be present for quali or race, just setup a strategy for your driver/team. You can check your progress on how you’ve done after the quali/race has finished. You play against other “managers” of course, and it takes about 30 days to complete the full season – and you can compete in 2 seasons at a time!
I’m in my first season (2nd race now) and really enjoying it. I reckon there’s a few guys out there that might enjoy it too!
