Shit, shit shit. I haven't checked the forums for a bit so was absolutely shocked to hear this devastating news. Last I heard Bruce was taking time out to deal with it all but was still in good spirits.
I'm still shocked with a tear in my eye and have to say that I echo everyone else's comments about him being a genuinely welcoming, warm, humorous, and all-round decent person. I'll always remember talking to Bruce when I first started, him having a laugh at some of the twisted rubbish I came up with I'm sure just to make me feel welcome to XGN. He was always a gentlemen on track and was generous in how he behaved toward others (even when getting cut-off or ran into). Also a great person to chat with when the servers went down. I'm just regretful that I wasn't around for the last few seasons with him.
What a tremendous loss to the sim racing community, but I'm sure nothing compared to what his family and "real life" friends must be going through given the type of bloke he was. I still can't believe it, but I guess the best one's are taken to a better place. I'm sure the bugger is setup with a giant motion rig and 10 foot OLED screen playing AC on a super computer as we speak!
RIP Bruce. Forever immortalised here at XGN by equally great people.

Bah, wish I had my rig for this. Love the Exos.
Pedals. Plus life and stuff. I'll be back one day, but at the moment new house furniture and other living expenses are taking a priority.

I saw this as well. A good concept. It goes to show that gaming and sim racing, esports, etc. Are being taken more seriously these days by the wider public and obviously becoming more popular. It's obviously just a marketing ploy, but if a team as big as Mclaren are actively trying to engage the sim racing community it goes to show how big sim racing has become.
I'd love to take part but I don't think I have the hardware, or more importantly the time (not to mention the skill!) . The greater the competition the more time you have to put into perfecting a setup which takes a lo5 longer than perfecting a track IMO.
You guys should have a shot though - it would be good to see a few xgn'ers throwing their hat in the ring.
