We are all spending more time at home than ever, making it difficult to stay upbeat and entertained. While it may not the best time to get behind the wheel, we have put together a few ways to help automotive enthusiasts get through these challenging times.


Play a Racing Video Game

There’s never been a better time to pick up a racing game, many of which are more realistic, immersive, and fun than ever. Most games support online multiplayer, providing another great way to stay connected with fellow car enthusiast friends and family.

If you own a PlayStation 4, we recommend Gran Turismo Sport. This latest entry in the long-running series emphasizes online racing at all levels of competition. Vehicles and tracks are incredibly detailed, and the game continues to receive free updates. F1 and NFS Heat are also two great alternatives.

Xbox One and PC gamers should check out Forza Horizon 4, known for its breath-taking open world. The game is set in a fictional version of Great Britain and players have access to over 600 vehicles, with in-depth performance and visual customization options. Project CARS 2 and DiRT Rally 2.0 are two fun and immersive games that are bound to get you hooked.



Build a Model Kit

If you like tinkering with your car in real life, we bet you’ll love building a model replica at home. Model car kits come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. You can build everything from a 1/24 scale Ferrari to a Porsche made of 1,580 Lego bricks.

And for those with kids at home, building a model car together can be an unforgettable bonding experience and a chance to get your children excited about the automotive world. These kits can be found online on Takealot or ToysRus.



Catch Up on Automotive Movies and Shows

These days, we’re all spending more time streaming videos.

As it turns out, there’s a treasure box filled with automotive content available to binge across different services. Our favourites include Jay Leno’s Garage on YouTube, Formula 1: Drive to Survive on Netflix, and The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime Video. There’s a wide range of 4×4 shows available on YouTube as well for the more adventurous car-lovers.

If your kids have not been bitten by the car bug, you can pique their interest by streaming Pixar’s Cars trilogy. 

Podcasts can also be a great way to keep your wheels turning, especially if you’re working from home. The Smoking Tire podcast has something for every automotive enthusiast and features notable guests from across the automotive industry. If you’re shopping for a car, we suggest the Everyday Driver Car Debate for some great recommendations. And for those who want to learn something new, check out CarStuff.

Start a DIY Project

These days, we’re betting that your car is spending most of its time in your driveway or garage, so this may be the perfect time to start and finish that DIY project you’ve had on your mind. That could be anything from changing your oil, replacing your battery, or even building a drawer system for your bakkie.

Some DIY projects are relatively simple to do, while others can be more complex and take a few days. Before you get started, be sure to read the manual where applicable. It also doesn’t hurt to watch a few tutorial videos online, especially if it’s your first time getting under the hood. Shops like Takealot, Adendorf and even Outdoor Warehouse have goodies and tools that you can add to your vehicle for a personal touch (and they offer online shopping and delivery).



Read blogs about the latest car news

If you’re describing yourself as a car enthusiast, chances are that you like to indulge in all the know-hows of vehicles, trends, and all-around news regarding the car industry.

Car blogs are freely accessible on the internet and you can spend hours gaining more knowledge on car-news topics, newly released vehicles, and hacks you didn’t know about that will make life easier.

Two stand-out news websites with quirky as well as educational blogs are CarMag and TopGear and their information is suitable for all ages.
