It absolutely does. A lot of successful amateur club race drivers who have gotten jobs driving cite iracing as a key piece of their training.

Cool. I do enjoy iracing. An Oculus VR setup is the way to go with higher resolution dependable VR on its way.

How does iracing compare to Project Cars 2 or Forza Motorsports 7?

Haven't played PC2. I have been on iRacing for about 4 months now, with the last couple of weeks in VR. I have played console racing games since GT1. I thought console games were pretty accurate, but I find iRacing to be much closer to the real thing. The feel is much closer to real life, as well as the characteristics of the cars, such as tires overheating if you overdrive, or wearing as the race progresses. Aside from the feel of the game/sim, iRacing races are much more realistic in the sense that there is some form of penalty for being a bad racer.
