    Nope. There are great leagues in PCars 2 andNascar Heat 4 . Nascar Heat 4 is actually a good game. I know its turn left BS,but it is really good when you do Trucks and Dirt cars. There are dirt road tracks.

    Maybe consider a wheel with a nice and neat looking folding stand so that it can look nice in a corner of the room when not in use or be folded up and put out of sight in a cupboard.

    I'm similar to you in that a dedicated rig is out of the question - at least if I want to stay married! So it has to be a wheelstand. I've been racing online and offline with a Wheelstand Pro and various wheels for 10 years or so. I find family members both young and ancient enjoy trying the wheel at Christmas time and other family gatherings.

    I had to switch from a hand controller because I have large hands and was so clumsy with it.

    Try talking to your partner about a wheel and stand - my hobby does seem bizarre to my wife and kids, but they have come to accept that racing is something that Dad does from time to time to unwind from work. Your partner might be more understanding than you think - especially if you trade off the value of your toys for treats for her!

    I'm careful not to spend too long gaming and reward myself with the odd hour in return for getting my share of domestic and family chores completed.

    Game wise I enjoy Project Cars 2 - unlike most people I don't bother with any adjustments and just find cars and tracks that work well on default settings. I never alter my wheel or game settings from one year to the next. (I play this game online and offline)

    Asetto Corsa - I love this game for the Maserati 250F historic Formula One cars and the very lifelike feel of the tracks. There are a few other cars that I love, but not as many as in PC2. (I only play this game offline)

    Wreckfest - great fun - if you want a bit of escapism then add this to your list. I find it gets my heart pumping, but the loading times are very long - they feel as long as the races, but that helps me to calm down! (I only play this game offline)

    Whatever you decide - have fun!

    PC1 is great, with one caveat- the season progression is a howling PITA, with all sorts of extra events. I ran out of patience after my GT4 season- I want to get on w/ GT3, not do 4 rounds of Escort vs. AMG and the like. To be fair, my waning interest in GTS may send me back. (Should I just shell out for PC2?)
