My presentation at FIA Sport congress about E-sports

    Just got back home from FIA Sport Congress where I had a mission to present Lithuania's E-Sports achievements and to express my opinion on how to engage the young generation in Motorsports. Since we are quite far ahead of other regions in terms of Sim Racing development, I have tried to prove my position that young generation CAN and SHOULD be attracted to motorsports through a proper simulation software like Assetto Corsa because Gran Turismo and other similar commercial software is anything but true representation of motorsports. In conclusion I believe that by sticking to these best selling "games" for their tournaments FIA is hardly doing any good to attract young generation to participate in real autosport as for them it's just another game in the box of CD's for the evening and not something they could rely on for their skill and knowledge development towards the future participation in Motorsport. Before leaving home I had a chance to explain this in depth face to face to several key FIA officials, offered my help to other countries' autosport federations on Esports development and I left on a "keep in touch" note rather than Goodbye ✌

    I would encourage Assetto corsa developers and all the communities to start communicating with your countries autosport federations since E-sports seems to be on the top of FIA's developement plan and if we will not do anyththing those rich gaming titles will continue to favore their choice...

    I will continue to spread the correct message as much as I can to the top levels of FIA executives in the future meetings.

    If you need any help on how to get involved with your automobile federation or other questions you can find me on Facebook - LAR555

    At the moment I am the guy who presented the proper way of how sim racing should be represented to the highest levels of the FIA officials from europe. Some of the autosport fededations (iceland, sweden,norway) later approached me and expressed their interest into they of doing it through the realistic simulators and actually bringing some benefit to the real motorsport grass roots. I was a delegate through the Lithuanian federation to present our championship Neste dream 2 drive where whe put the winner of e - championship into the real racing car and he performs in the real endurance championship alongside the professional driver. Both winners proved that the guy from sim racing can be just as fast as someone who was driving karts and cars his whole life. This case attracted FIAs attention and I was invented to present this at their europe congerenve. Later I've approached the people from FIA and really tried to offer my help to other federations on how to approach their sim racing communities. I will continue to communicate with them and try to educate them on quality instead of quantity appraoach to professional softwares and their benefits. It really seemed to me that FIA has sim racing on top of their agenda and really want to engage with young generations as this is a new way to prepare future race drivers.

    You should take it easy man. Not always, but at least sometimes you should.
    And who are you (without ****, note it) to say someone should be banned from here?

    I couldn't care less about what software the FIA thinks is best for their agenda.

    I think that ultimately commercial interests will always sway such decisions, rather than common sense. The deepest pockets usually win, unfortunately.

    Have you been in touch with Marco Massarutto here? He's the guy who does all the licensing.
