I fee that Sim time made a huge difference to my first (and only) season on track. I was on-pace with the rest of the field from the second session, and only two seconds a lap behind my very well respected co-driver. A good sim session trains us to concentrate intensely for far longer than every day life typically requires, and track time demands this.

I was also rather dangerous.

My advice is to be aware that any bad habits that you may form when using a sim will likely carry across to the real world. Not so much when things are going well, but when things get intense and you are approaching the limit of how much you can process and respond to - you will have to fight the urge to fall back onto those habits. So always sim with realistic damage on and driver assists all off. And race longer races than you want to.
