Promotion tool= That's a good idea, drawing in more real racers is always welcome.
May save equipment for some, but personally I will be running just as much with my real car as I was before, because most of my track time is spent tuning as much as it is driving practice.
It is still a great way to learn good driving practices. If you can keep dropping lap times in the sim, you will probably begin to see them drop on the real track as well, especially in the off-season when you get rusty. But I don't need a dozen tracks to do that. A couple will suit me just fine.
