Discovering WIMSim – Your New Pathway to Motorsport

Embark on an exciting journey that blends video games with the thrilling world of motorsport through WIMSim, WIMCanada’s ultimate racing simulator experience designed exclusively for women. WIMCanada has partnered with Advanced SimRacing, in collaboration with D-BOX, to pioneer the exploration, design, and construction of simulators tailored to address specific needs of female drivers. Discover the strategic role of esports sim racing as a strategic entry point, especially for women looking to venture into racing. In addition, hear the real-life success story that demonstrates how virtual racing can open doors to opportunities with professional racing teams.



The Perfect Entry Point through Sim Racing


The virtual aspect of sim racing effectively eliminates many barriers that women might face when venturing into the world of traditional motorsport. Initial anonymity allows female racers to focus on skill development without pressures of preconceived notions. Traditionally, you would need a substantial financial investment to race in real life. Sim racing and esports offer a low-barrier entry point, promoting women's exploration of racing without significant financial constraints.


Racing simulators like WIMSim replicate real-world dynamics with remarkable precision. Skills acquired in sim racing can be effectively transferred to real-life racing, a seamless transition for those contemplating a shift into four-wheeled competition. Esports, being a relatively newer arena, also tends to have a more progressive, and inclusive environment where women are encouraged to embrace their passion for racing and motorsport.


From Video Games to Real-World Racing


Sim racing is more than just having fun on the screen; it is inspiring a remarkable shift from virtual tracks to real-life raceways. It may sound unreal to go from your video game console or racing simulator setup to actually racing on a professional track – but it is happening, and it is changing the face of motorsport!


You might be familiar with the story (or seen a trailer of the newly released movie) of Jann Mardenborough, an individual who went from playing Gran Turismo on his console into a racing star. Jann's journey serves as a source of inspiration for aspiring racers who might not have previously viewed their passion for video games as a possible career path. His achievements show that the skills nurtured through sim racing – the quick reflexes, the strategic thinking, and the sheer exhilaration of competitive racing – extend beyond the digital world; they are, in essence, a blueprint for success on real race tracks.



The Gran Turismo Academy and eNASCAR are some of the virtual racing championships that have seen talented individuals like Lucas Ordoñez and William Byron make the remarkable leap from gaming consoles to the race tracks, showcasing that virtual training can indeed lead to real-world triumphs.
