The Dunning-Kruger effect is the name given to the phenomenon of vastly overestimating your own capabilities without any specialist knowledge. An example of this is when the entire nation becomes the national team coach during the world cup. But what has this got to do with motorsport? Very simply: from now on, every motorsport fan and smartphone owner can find out whether they have what it takes to become the next Pascal Zurlinden. In the new 'GT Manager' race management game.
The smartphone game released by the developer, The Tiny Digital Factory, turns gamers into team managers – who take care of everything from drivers, through sponsors and development, to crew. And, of course, the core element of the race team: the cars. As any aspiring and professional team manager knows, there is really only one option in GT sport – cars from Zuffenhausen. So we're delighted that three of our motorsport cars are represented, namely the 911 RSR of 2020, 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport and 911 GT3 R.
The ideal conditions, therefore, for developing your own gaming ambitions, testing strategies, competing in races and networking online. And thereby gradually progressing through the leagues and championships. For anyone seeking an entirely new way to immerse themselves in the world of motorsport, the GT Manager is available to download now for iOS: https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/gt-manager/id1537951774 and Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.TDF.GTManager.
We hope you enjoy being the manager – see you on the race track!
