Welcome to the very first episode of Nitro Nights, the show in which we take a look at all things esports racing.
Fasten your seatbelts and make yourself comfortable, as we jump right into our very first episode of Nitro Nights with a special guest. Host Tom Deacon is joined by none other than DTM driver Dani Juncadella. The Spaniard won the European 2012 Formula 3, and switched to DTM afterwards where he competed for Mercedes.
Dani has been an avid gamer of racing sims since 2007. He spent many hours in Assetto Corsa, preparing for real DTM races. However, for some time now, his ambitions to challenge the best esports racers have grown. In 2019, he took a liking to iRacing. Not only is he amazed by the high level of competition of the game but also by its graphics and physics. However, there are things, he would like to see improved.
Of course, Tom and Dani also address current issues. As tracks around the world remain empty due to the COVID-19 crisis, virtual tracks have never been busier. Dani Juncadella shares his insight and opinion on how racing at home is just as competitive as racing on real tracks and how the esports racing world has found its place in the hearts of many traditional racing fans.
On top of that, he gives some advise on how to get the right setup and what newcomers should keep in mind when making their first steps in esports racing.
