It's been on my wish list for a while...
I have Redout which supports VR and it's actually not that nauseating, despite all the fast turning and loops. I played a lot of Wipeout over the years, so maybe I can just stomach it.
I definitely want to try this, although I'm not sure I want to do it in VR.
I wasn't a fan of Redout either but if you like classic wipeout then BallisticNG has a VR mode. I really like it. It took me a few days to build up my VR legs for it but it's well worth it. Incrementally increasing your speed class with the sense of speed that VR gives you is pretty addictive. Going >1000km/h in VR is incredible. Also, if you're on an Index, 144hz really pays off.
I wouldn't recommend people start out with a racing game that has smooth roll rotation like GRIP though. BallisticNG has a mode that keeps the plane of your view fixed to the horizon (except when passing over the gravity pad things). One should get the basics down first and only then integrate roll rotation.
