Introducing our new Weekly Motorsport Round-Up. A regular fixture, the WMR looks to break down the last week’s on-track escapades — helpful for those who don’t have the means to catch them live. Let’s jump into it!
Coming up on the July 10 is Amazon’s thirty-hour Prime Day sale event. If you’re unfamiliar with the event, it’s a yearly mass-discount sale like Black Friday. Unlike Black Friday, it’s an Amazon exclusive event, and only extends to Prime Members.
With summer drawing in (at least for you northern hemisphere folks), Steam is making sure to stop that fun in the sun. This, of course, is the wallet-taunting Steam summer sale. From the looks of the line up, it’s going to be another year of impulse buys for many.
The eagerly anticipated Forza Motorsport 7 finally broke cover this week at E3 2017. It’s already been announced that the new Forza title will sport a brand new dynamic weather system and career mode, but it seems there’s a bit more in store than that.

One criticism often leveled at Gran Turismo regards its sounds, with Kazunori Yamauchi himself apologizing for the audio quality. A promise of change has proven to be true for the latest iteration of the series, at least in this early beta phase.
Last week, Team VVV was fortunate enough to get some seat time with Project CARS 2, testing out the recently announced inclusion of the Red Bull Ring. There was a catch though: recorded video would be done with a controller instead of the expected sim racing rig.
With the Blancpain GT Series sister championship, the Sprint Series, having its season opener earlier this month, it was time for the more established GT Endurance Series to also take on Italy for its start to the 2017 season — this time at Monza.
Italian outfit Sparco, already well known for its real-world racing kit, has released details on its soon-to-be released gaming product lines, after first announcing its decision to enter the market late December.
It was a busy time for racing last weekend, with the second round of Formula One as well as the kick-off of the 2017 Super GT season. Not to be outdone, the IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship had arguably the most dramatic race of the weekend.
