We are all gripped by Formula 1 and NASCAR, but could the future of the two, particularly the latter, be in a digital capacity?

Can this happen with eSports, or is it a non-starter? Will eSports ever be accepted by all involved? If this development continues, then maybe so. Why not! We run everything else through a digital capacity, so it’s not unthinkable.
