Some brief observations:
A thought popped into my mind, and perhaps we can borrow a page from
other "sports" if you will regarding this. Would Nascar be the same if
everyone was sitting in their internet VR chambers with a fake plastic
wheel driving around a virtual track? Could someone who crashes their
car in Nascar on a live track (if he's fortunate to walk away) walk into
a VR chamber and resume the race where he left off, competing virtually
and keeping his standing in BOTH arenas? No, not at present.
Look at Nascar. There's technology innovations in the cars nowadays (two
way radios, perhaps electronic on/offboard monitoring for the
engine/temps, etc.) The same exists for radiosport... There's
innovations like getscores, the cluster, etc..
While the classes may not be the same (and i'm no nascar expert on these
new innovations, rules, classes, etc.., so please correct and enlighten
me if i'm wrong) ... the ideas are still the same.
