I don't have trouble steering my car and looking around

Sim driving games with Oculus, that's what I am most excited about.

It seems like the perfect application for VR: the user is already seated and using driving controls, matching that of the digital environment and character. With Oculus you'll be able to look around the interior of a car like the McLaren MP4-12C, survey action in the mirrors and shoulder check blindspots. It will also overcome the biggest disadvantage to a single screen setup, being able turn ones head and look for the second or third apex ahead.

I'm tempted to pickup a development kit just to try out iRacing...

Also flight sims where you need to look ahead of where your jet is pointing to line up a runway or an enemy in your gun sights. Same with a helo, where the ability to easily look left or right or at the instruments really increases the immersiveness.
