SOME have criticised the current craze of professional eSports for being too serious. Fortunately, there are alternatives out there.

If you have read these pages previously, you might know that I am unashamedly a huge fan of the work of Dinner with Racers, a hit US Podcast which has recently branched out into an Amazon Prime TV series.

In this time of extended lock down, the team have started hosting their own whacky brand of iRacing, with grossly miss-matches classes on hugely inappropriate tracks, with great guest commentators. And damage off.

Some recent iterations of their “Thursday Night Blunder” series have featured:
An Ode to Germany – seven classes of German cars on the Müllenbach, the shortest layout at the Nürburgring
Not-So Historic Le Mans – Nissan GTP, GRC cars, 410 winged sprints & Pro 2 Trucks
Talladega Unrestricted – NASCAR, IndyCar, LMP1 & Legends
Long Beach – Formula 1, Indycar, Formula Renault 2.0 & Skip Barber
Martinsville – NASCAR Trucks & Stadium Trucks

Keep an eye out for some special guest drivers throughout, as well.

For this week’s round, the winner of a fan vote was Mount Panorama by Night, with the choice of machinery featuring GT3 cars (with headlights) and Indycars (without).

Adding to the spectacle was Twitter legend NASCARCASM providing special comments. Enjoy!

We have already critiqued the excellent work of Tom Arron, and thankfully, he has kept coming up with the magic.

Below are some examples, but much more can be found on his Twitter page.
