plus its not like you're going to be able to go to the fun places/tracks, that you'd be able to "go" to with that setup. its the same reason that professional drivers are now using pro versions of these despite the fact that they literally can go out and race the incredible cars on the tracks most of us will only ever be able to visit, if that.

imo, its a very cool toy that creates an immersive experience that will likely be supplemented with VR soon enough that allows someone to find the edge and likely improve their real world driving without the expense of real world mistakes.
I do primarily use an Oculus Rift for online racing, VR racing is fantastic, and next gen VR hmds are going to further the immersion. The monitors are there for a break from VR and games like dirt rally 2.0 that do not support VR yet.
