Pro Driver Nicki Thiim Does The Porsche Cup Car Test

The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car is available in many simulations, have you ever wondered which ones does it best? Pro racer Nicki Thiim has, putting the car to the test in three sims.

Nicki definitely knows what he’s talking about, having raced the GT3 Cup car professionally and highly successfully for many seasons, so which simulation does the legendary 911 the most justice? Watch Nicki in action in Assetto Corsa, iRacing and RaceRoom below to find out which version he prefers.

Spoiler Alert: For those who don’t want to watch the full video, Nicki considers the iRacing version the most realistic due to the chassis movement and iRacing’s superior laser-scanned tracks. The online racing sim can’t convince him across the board though as Nicki is particularly unimpressed with the tire model, especially the rear tires.

The son of Danish racing legend Kurt Thiim, Nicki Thiim is an accomplished race car driver, having won the 2013 Porsche Supercup, the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship GTE-Pro class among countless of other racing honors.
