    This is the future of endurance racing. Daytona and Le Mans will soon feature roboco-drivers.

    Aussie V8’s made a change years ago that shows how it will work well. They had a series with solo sprints as well as co-driver endurance races. It had developed to the point where teams with two strong drivers had to pair them for the enduro’s because it was losing points to other teams when they split the drivers. So Bathurst ended up with half the grid being super fast while the rest were reasonably-good but not super fast. So they banned “main-game” drivers from pairing up. The enduros became an excellent exercise in lead-drivers co-operating with part-timers. The lead drivers assumed much more gravitas and importance, like f1 drivers, while young uppers and old stagers got their limelight as well. It turned out to be much more of a spectacle than originally planned as a simple rule-fix.

    Rococo-driver’s will provide endurance racing with a fascinating new dimension. Imagine Buemi winning Le Mans – on his own!

    Imagine “nobody” winning Le Mans on his own. Not sure it will be fun.

    A mix of real and robodrivers …one thing is an AI being faster -eventually it will, but an AI that acidentally causes an accident involving human driven cars…just no?!
