Worlds Fastest Gamer James Baldwin – Interpreting Force Feedback
Via the Logitech G-Channel, last year’s World’s Fastest Gamer (and now GT3 racing driver), James Baldwin explains why Force Feedback (FFB) is such a crucial element of sim racing and gives us his first impressions of the new Logitech G923 with TRUEFORCE.
Sim Racer James Baldwin claimed the US$1M prize in the form of a season seat in the McLaren 720S GT3 of the Jenson Team Rocket RJN racing team founded by Bob Neville and 2009 F1 champion Jenson Button.
James could not have dreamed up a better start of his real-world racing career, as he and co-driver Michael O’Brien claimed the win in the opening race of the 2020 British GT Championship at the Oulton Park circuit driving the Team Rocket RJN McLaren.
James also promotes the 3rd Annual Logitech McLaren G Challenge 2020 in which gamers can compete in online qualifiers and wild card events, and ultimately win an all-expenses-paid VIP McLaren F1 experience.
The Logitech McLaren G Challenge eSport event is divided into four divisions, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. Each region will host online qualifiers and/or wildcard events throughout the summer of 2020. The winners of these events will go on to compete in their division’s Regional Finals. The top three racers from each division will then compete in the worldwide Grand Finals.
The Logitech McLaren G Challenge online qualifiers, wildcards, and regional finals will all be played on Project Cars 2. Regional Finalists will win a spot in the Grand Final and paid travel for themselves and a guest to the competition.
The overall winner of the 2020 Logitech McLaren G Challenge will receive a four-day all-expenses-paid trip to London and a visitor experience at the McLaren Technology Centre. But it does not stop there. The winner will be able to drive in a McLaren supercar, coached by Formula 1 driver Lando Norris, and will be a VIP guest at the 2021 F1 British Grand Prix.
