So its 2020, you’re locked in no thanks to this COVID-19 global pandemic, and you remember you got that old gaming steering wheel in the closet. What are you gonna do? Why don’t we try and win $300,000 (yep that’s P15.5-million) in the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series?
At home, in your mom’s basement, just like Zack Novak who ‘only’ got $43,750 (or P2.25-million) when he won the championship last year. Now that’s been upped to $100,000 for the 2020 champ because some beverage company who endorses diabetes endorses racing too.
I’m thirsty now. I want a Coke.
Not bad for ‘playing games’ at home.
