TITLE SPONSOR READ:

Are you tired of your pedals feeling like a video game? Want to step up to feeling like you’re actually driving? 

We designed our P1 Pro Pedals to feel exactly like a real car giving you a better feeling when you’re driving. Push braking zones to the limit and avoid locking up by having a finer feel of the limits. Trail brake into the corner smoother allowing you to carry more speed. 

Our P1 Pro Pedals will be the last set of pedals you’ll ever purchase for your simulator. Lifetime Warranty is included. That means if you ever run into issues in years to come, we’ll service them and keep them perfect!

iRacing Year in Review

Season 1

iRacing 2022 Season 1 has the green flag! This major season release adds a pair of new touring cars, the Honda Civic Type R and the Hyundai Elantra N TC, as well as the Mercedes-AMG F1 W12 E Performance racing machine. The iRacing horizon has expanded to include Scotland’s Knockhill Racing Circuit, Watkins Glen International has been fully re-built with brand new 2021 scan data, and the Porsche Experience Center at the Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg is open for business with four new track configurations! iRacing also adds a new tire scuffing visual effect, and a “Ready to Race!” button to help everyone get back to the action even faster. Our AI Drivers have been busy training up on three new vehicles and NINETEEN new track configurations, and they’re ready to give you a run for the gold. Welcome to iRacing 2022 Season 1!

Season 2

iRacing 2022 Season 2 is here! Get ready to expand your garage – this Release features a whopping SIX brand new cars (Aston Martin Vantage GT4, Hyundai Veloster N TC, iRacing Formula iR-04, NASCAR Buick LeSabre – 1987, Stock Car Pro Series Toyota Corolla, and the Stock Car Pro Series Chevrolet Cruze), two brand new tracks (Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55, and Winton Motor Raceway), and 10 new pieces of content for AI Racing. The New Damage Model is coming pre-enabled on all new content except for the Stock Car Pro Series Cars. The NetCode system has received a little TLC, and the Multiple Tire Compound system has been fully developed. We’ve applied some new aerodynamic and tire knowledge to the GT3 Class Cars. Also, the NASCAR Camping World Trucks have been updated to their 2022 NASCAR Season specs, including a top-to-bottom full art upgrade for the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro. There should be something for everyone, welcome to iRacing 2022 Season 2!

Season 3

iRacing 2022 Season 3 has arrived! We’ve added TWO new Mercedes-AMG race cars, Mercedes-AMG GT3 2020 and Mercedes-AMG GT4, and the Radical SR10 to our stables. Travel to Japan, Australia, and the USA with Fuji International Speedway, Sandown International Motor Raceway, and Port Royal Speedway. Start Zones have been added as an option to all NASCAR Cup oval tracks for a more authentic green flag experience. We have heard our community and have fixed a tire conditioning exploit used during Qualifying. Tire graining and cording visual effects may now be seen on all cars, and our GT3 class has received the latest IMSA visual updates. The New Damage Model is now in effect on FIVE more car models, and AI Racing is available for TWELVE more pieces of content. Oh, and you’ll also find over SIX-HUNDRED (600!) new custom built setups. Jump in head-first to iRacing 2022 Season 3!

Season 4

The green flag is waving for iRacing 2022 Season 4! This season includes the release of iRacing’s first fully electric race car, the Porsche Mission R, a pair of new European Road Courses, Motorsport Arena Oschersleben and Rudskogen Motorsenter, and a new Dirt Oval, Lucas Oil Speedway. We’ve added Indianapolis Motor Speedway – IndyCar Oval using our 2022 laser scan data, and have rebuilt all of the artwork for both the ARCA Menards Chevrolet Impala and Lotus 79 from scratch. A host of quality upgrades have also been completed, including a substantial change to the New Damage Model so that now damage builds up in areas on your car with repeated strikes which could eventually cause breakage, a rewrite and significant upgrade to the Low-Frequency Effects audio system, and the addition of Driving Aid Pit Lines for all Road Courses. For the iRacing UI, the veteran-favorite Race Guide is now available, as well as Custom Car Classes for AI Racing, and a few new Guided Tours. With our seasonal AI update, we have gone back to our Grand Prix Legends roots with the release of the Lotus 49 along with the much anticipated release of the NASCAR Cup Series Next Gen cars and 18 other new pieces of content. Buckle-up and drive full-throttle into iRacing 2022 Season 4!

iRacing Season 4 2022 Build Highlights

iRacing posted a video on their YouTube channel wit a recap of the season 4 build

The green flag is waving for iRacing 2022 Season 4! This season includes the release of iRacing’s first fully electric race car, the Porsche Mission R, a pair of new European Road Courses, Motorsport Arena Oschersleben and Rudskogen Motorsenter, and a new Dirt Oval, Lucas Oil Speedway. We’ve added Indianapolis Motor Speedway – IndyCar Oval using our 2022 laser scan data, and have rebuilt all of the artwork for both the ARCA Menards Chevrolet Impala and Lotus 79 from scratch. A host of quality upgrades have also been completed, including a substantial change to the New Damage Model so that now damage builds up in areas on your car with repeated strikes which could eventually cause breakage, a rewrite and significant upgrade to the Low-Frequency Effects audio system, and the addition of Driving Aid Pit Lines for all Road Courses. For the iRacing UI, the veteran-favorite Race Guide is now available, as well as Custom Car Classes for AI Racing, and a few new Guided Tours. With our seasonal AI update, we have gone back to our Grand Prix Legends roots with the release of the Lotus 49 along with the much anticipated release of the NASCAR Cup Series Next Gen cars and 18 other new pieces of content. Buckle-up and drive full-throttle into iRacing 2022 Season 4!

NASCAR iRacing Series

Friday Open: Kansas

  • Ellis – Wrecked out a guy was losing it in the middle I went around is outside to go around him he just barely clipped me I ended up with 29 seconds optional and 3 1/2 minutes required and the car was not drivable.   
  • Rochette- P31 just found myself in the wrong spot wrong time wrecking car clips and sends me into the wall ends day
  • Spiker -P19 
  • Kyle – Started P15 and gained 5 spots in the first lap. Had a few quick cautions early. Restarted on Lap 21 and had a different pit strategy green flag stop around lap 80. Came out 1 lap down and in 21st. Ran strong getting back past the leader and and driving away. Started picking off positions quickly with the freshest tires on the track. Got up to P7 and a caution comes out at lap 101. Pitted with the rest of the leaders and lap 113 caution flys again Sitting P5 I decide to pit while the rest of the leaders stayed out.Came out the gate conserving my tires. And caution flys again a a lap or so later. I stay out and on the restart got the lead with 12 to go and battled for several laps for the lead. With 5 or so laps to go im sitting p3 and the caution comes out. We go into OT and I tailed the leader on the restart and run him through 1 and 2 only staying a fender behind him. We take the white and now p3 is working on me and I just couldn’t hold him off So i walk away with a Podium P3. Still gaining iRating like crazy.
  • Sunday Open
  • Rochette -P14 just couldn’t figure this track out this year. Glad its over 
  • Kyle –  That one bad race. Started P14 on a new setup. The car was loose and just dropped back fast. Got hooked on lap 11 and took major damage. Pitted and fixed the damage. Came out 17 laps down and was way off the pace. But was hoping to just take away any positions from wrecked out drivers. Worked in my favor and went from 35th to 24th.

Hall –   wrecked.  Car right in front of me got loose.  Car was crap anyway.  Work I did on the set didn’t pay off at all, it drove nothing like it should have.

  • Sunday fixed 
  • Mike -p23 – There were a bunch of early cautions and one guy was the common denominator I ended up and getting involved in two of his cautions for eight acts with 13 minutes damage. I got it all repaired and went back out there and finish P 23. I was determined to finish the head of the guy who caused all the cost of the shirt off he eventually wrecked him self out.

Wednesday Open:  Bristol

  • Hall -wrecked out, the ultimate choke
  • Ellis – started 19th got involved in a caution not too much damage, but was trapped a lap down and had to take awave around. There’s several cars in front of the leader as we come to the one to green and it doesn’t wave us around so the lap cars end up starting the race in front of the leaders.  Later another caution comes, but I’m not a lucky dog later at lap 50 another caution comes and I stay out to try the wave around again, and it works. Luckily, I got another caution to get back on the same tire strategy. Driving forward from there. God is high SP2 was running about fifth when I spend on my own down to the inside and created 4 1/2 minutes damage losing three laps. Speed still good there and I continue on later. Getting another wreck that I couldn’t miss. Bringing it to six minutes damage.  still three laps down, but through attrition gradually work my way up and up and up and by the end of the race I was p4!!!
  • Tom D – wrecked out
  •  
  • Adam – wrecked out
  • Stephen – wrecked out
  • Thurs Open 
  •  

Rochette -P2 heartbreaker in last great coliseum. Was definitely the fastest car as led 87 laps and stayed top 3 all day. Wrong pit strategy and a yellow coming out just before i was about to unlap myself from a green flag stop (would’ve gained 3 laps in 20 laps run). Got lucky dog in 3rd so started behind the lappers and not enough time to make my way up front. So close yet so far



Official Series


  • A Open
    • Hall – p15 in a 6.3k SoF 13 pro’s
      • I was slow on first 30 laps, but as the leader was getting near lapping me, I started matching his speed.  I pass a car and catch a 2 lap down car who doors me to keep me from getting by him.  I get back in around behind around 8th and fight to catch back up to the other LD candidate.  Couple of pro’s didn’t like it, but I was pacing them and holding my line not blocking.  Caution Comes, I take wavearound.  Pays off as the 2 lap down idot wrecks a pro.  80 lap run to finish.  Again Garret Manes gets to within 3 seconds of lapping me.  Then I start pasing cars and drive from 21st to 15th.  Had a shot af 11th as we were bunch up at the end, but with the battling right in front of me I couldn’t snag another spot.

Ellis – F 2000 at Summit raceway – started P8 out of 13 got to pee six near the end of the first lap and on the final corner I spot it and tour of the left front off. 

  • SPIKER P8


Kyle Ran a bunch of the Mazda Global MX5’s I forgot how much fun these cars are. A lot of P2 finishes trying to save my A license.


League / Hosted Races

  • FastTrack League – Michigan
    • Mike – p15 – was running like crap, dead last and not up to pace really… GF stops started to happen i stayed out, ended up getting a caution before pitting caught the lucky dog. So ended up p9 starting 9th coming to one to green, and the admins decide to arbitrarily throw a delay to the green. Now, I am put back from 9th to 21st I have to let all the wave arounds by… I call out over the radio totally unfair, and am given no explanation, no sorry, no nothing i have to go to tail end… I get other drivers trying to argue that I would have had to let them by anyways…  So we go again and same thing a gf cycle starts, and then i stay out, catch the caution, p6… once again 10 on lead lap they delay the gf again…. I call them out again, unfair… I was slow and needed those 15 cars to be spread out coming to green so it was harder to catch me…  but because of admin pushing a button that didnt need pushed, they were all up right behind me… IMO delay of green should never be used due to its unintended consequences. This is why leagues suck… Admin didnt mean to screw me, but they did none the less… If this was official, it would have never happened.
    • Adam –  p dnf – too loose –
  • unofficial – Ellis
    • Mazda cup at Rudskogan motor Center. Qualified P5 out of 19 got ran over from behind in the first high-speed corner ended up dead last worked my way back up to 12th. 
    • Next race qualified P8 out of 19. I had a few slow down penalties which really put me back but I got up to P7. 
    •  
  • Week 13
    • Hall   P1 twice  in Ridiculousness.
  • Chris McGuire hosted racing. Kia Optima at Daytona. Wrecked out but still finish ninth. 
    • Kyle and David won each class in a Porche EV and Trucks race at Dega
  • radicals and lotus 79 at the new free track. Wrecked out

Wheelchair Sim Rig

Would anyone (or know anyone) interested in a wheelchair accessible racing setup? After 33 years of being paralyzed unfortunately I can no longer race due to both shoulders being “worn out” as my Dr. put it. This setup is best suited for a manual wheelchair. This includes Accuforce V2 with original wheel and a cheap no name smaller wheel.(pictured) Three 32in Sceptre 1080p 75hz monitors and Heusinkveld pro pedals.

Fixed Foveated Rendering

A Loyal stream view dropped told me (David) about Fixed Foveated Rendering. I It sacrifices resolution on the edges of the screen to allow you to run higher settings and get better FPS. You don’t notice unless you look at the edge of the screen without turning your head. Highly Recommend

Best PC to Run iRacing 

Ellis Thomas Posts:

Hi everyone. Working on a bit of a project and wanted to know: if you could build the best PC to run iracing maxed out in 1440, and money were very little concern, what would your build look like in terms of hardware? …..

Phillip Morton Posts:

News that AMD are launching Ryzen 7000 on Sept 15th and Nvidia are dropping the RTX 4000 series in October. Raptor Lake from Intel should be around in November. You can buy now, though it’s the end of the current generations and for the dollars maybe worth waiting for the new stuff to arrive. You’ll either get a bargain on the above list or be able to get even more bang for the dollar from the new stuff.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Michigan

Spiker – P19, Started P17 – It was a fun run.  I made a mistake attempting to pass a slower vehicle.  I lost patience, entered Turn 3 too hot and slid up into the wall. Short pitted the final run which was a mistake causing me to lose two spots.

  • Hall – p parked- was terrible slow, then got unsafe exit penalty and just was done
  • Sunday fixed 
  • Mike –p Ran my tires off in about eight laps and then fell they the field to almost dead last, decided to short pit at lap 33 but I was caught speeding on Pit Road because I only at 2% left on the right front so I had a 40 second penalty at the point I came out I To be running dead last three laps down. As the cycle continued and finished I got back to one lap down before a caution I ended up staying out for the wave around to get back on the lead lap then luckily got another caution several laps later to get back on the same fuel entire strategy then another short run to move from 20th to 12th.  with 19 to go I went from 12th to 5th and 10 laps before the next caution. Another quick caution leaves us with a restart with four to go and restarting  P7. Drove up to P3 ran out of time to get past the next two… p3!!! Woot!
  • Stephen – p wrecked out on lap seven again.
  • Race :  Richmond

Wed Fixed 

  • Wed Open:
  • Hall –p23 .forgot to load race set, made the Q set work okay, but between 16x caused by others and 4x caused by me, got the black flag on the 3rd GWC.  One of them was a dude hitting me on purpose.
  • Ellis – pwrecked out – lap 1 i get loose just a hair on the exit and get tagged from behind  16 min dmg 
  • Tony R – P14 just hovered around the 8-12 spot all night nothing special but did got wiggle wiggled  when i got bumped early made my car go squiggle squiggle almost was in tribble tribble 

Tyler – P Blown up. Got wiped out by a dive bomber on a GWC. Restarted 8th and was cleaned out. Frustrating as I spent time practicing and working with the setups and the team to get the car to feel right. Gutted I didn’t get this top ten. Fun racing with Tom and Mike spotting

  • Thurs Open  

Ellis – p The guy who dumped me last night did the same thing to another guy on lap one as well so I did not feel as bad considering he could do it to anybody   . Started the in 19th and made it up to third by the end of the first run. It ran third and second basically the entire run I could not catch the leader I ran my ass off every lap. Last run I tried my hardest and ended up with P4!!!

Fri open: 

  • Hall – P 9 – Had Terrible pace, only got to practice 20 minutes and haven’t run all week.  Stole the position because I pitted on the edge of a window and a lot of drivers didn’t.


Official Series

  • Ellis – Skippys at Sonoma – 
  • F2000 – Oran park – started p11 got to p3 by end of lap 1 – had a big gap on the rest, spun on my own at one point, kept my spot but fourth place was right on me now – had to run hard the last laps to hold it… Donnie spotted.
    • Started p8 got to p3 by turn 3 lap 1 – was able to hold it for the rest of the race – top two drove away about a second per lap faster each lap
    • Started p6 got to p3 by turn 1 lap 1 – eventually got to p2 – had nothing for the leader he was a half second faster, but i did find some speed finally trying to roll the corners more and got my faster times every by about 7 tenths…
    • Started p4 – got to p2 but ran off the track and fell back to 4th – brought it home
  • F2000 – Road America – started p8 out of 10 – got to 4th by the first half a lap, but eventually went off track and fell to 7th
    • Started fourth there was a heavy blinker on my inside so I fell the seventh trying to be cautious was fighting for six near the end of lab one trying to get around the blinker and we wrecked go back to 13th, made my way back up to nineth by the end
    • Started p10 – got to p4 by halfway through lap 1, but went off in last corner lap 2 fell to 10th, then a few laps later went off hard and killed the car, dnf… had a guy who i was holding up taunting me in the chat ….
  • SPIKER
    • Nascar B Open, Michigan – P14, Started P7.  This time around, I had short run speed and failed on the long run. 
    • Nascar B Open, Richmond – P23, Started P18.  Messing up in my qualifying run put me in the middle of the pack for the start.  I found myself in trouble quick, being involved in my first incident.  On the next restart, again I could not avoid the wreckers and sustained 6m Optional Damage.  Two more incidents later, brought me to a 16X.  By this point, this was the worst race I had been a part of to date.  10 Cautions for 50 laps.
    • Nascar B Open, Richmond – P9, Started P10. This race was only slightly better than the night before.7 Cautions for 35 Laps.  Avoiding early mayhem was key in this one.

  • FastTrack League – Michigan
    1. Joe – wrecked out
    2. Greg pwrecked out

We roll around to the back and there are people slow so i slow up with everyone else- well here comes arca boy, comes flying in 60 mph faster and runs over my left rear and kills the car.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Kansas

  • Hall – P 21 Top Split.  The set that I thought was more stable really started to let go around lap 40.  At one point was 23rd 2 laps down after Green flag stops.  Caution comes out, take wave around, caution comes out, get lucky dog.  Back on lead lap, but then started behind all the lappers and they wrecked in front and killed my car.  Limped it home to 21st.  I did get caught in an early accident with minor damage and wonder if it is why the long run handle went away. 
  •  
  • Groves – Pwrecked out-ish, self spun and then it stopped shifting
  • Stephen-p
  • Adam -p 
  • Greg – PWrecked
  • Sunday Open
  • Greg pWinner winner final restart pass

Hall – p 3  Great run, finished just in front of adam.  Best non plate top split run so far.  Needed a long run to get to the top 2

  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike –p.wrecked out
    • Tyler – P9. Was not a Sunday Funday after a grueling demo derby at Kansas. 16 cautions total in my split. Managed to only get 5x and showed some late race speed. Was not thrilled with this car on the track but I’ll take a top 10 anyday.


Official Series

  • ndy 500 Fixed
  • Ellis – Lap 21 and push to the wall and I knocked off the right front. Surprisingly they repaired it and I was back out three laps down. There were some confusion about if I could get a lap back or not but it didn’t matter I hit the wall again and then it became undrivable but no damage to fix. 
  • Rochette – wrecked out 
  • Kyle Friday P6. Started P3 and dropped back to avoid the aggressive drivers. Around lap 35 got caught up in someone else’s wreck and had to tow. Needed less then 4 minutes of repairs and decided to fix it. Came back out 3 laps down and way down in the standings. Worked my way back up through the field as drivers started to leave the race and eventually got myself up to a P6.
  • Ellis – Chris Macguire 
  • Michigan – supercars – wrecked, then p4
  • 87 cars at tallAdega. Started 25th finish P6
  • GEN five cars at Talledega P2

The Entire History of iRacing…

Robin Truswell – I know I’ve done a post or two like this in the past, but they’ve always been snippets and aspects and had vitally important parts missing instead of a full-blown “report”. As far as I am aware, nobody has sat down, and compiled/written an article detailing iRacing’s “life” from “birth” until the present day, so, as I had a spare Saturday evening, I decided to do just that.

Season 3 Road Series Updates

The first of these is the renaming of the MOAR to the IMSA Pilot Challenge.

With the IMSA Pilot Challenge concept replacing the MOAR, we have also split the GT4’s and Touring Cars into separate Open series as the C level.

we have also brought back the Global Endurance Series. This series features 24 hour team events using the same vehicles as the European Sprint Series.

we have updated the start time of the LMP2 Prototype Challenge- Fixed to run opposite hours of the IMSA series on the odd:45 time GMT.

  • Rochette-P11 was running 2nd and ran out of gas with 3 laps left. Somehow racelabs turned the auto fuel off and shorted me 3 laps. I run auto fuel off on everything i run so dont know how that worked. Man i was running good at the end too
  • Hall – P 17 was gona be 10th or 11th gut a guy in the front over corrected, couldn’t avoid, still was running even better in this top split race, against tough tough dudes

  • Sunday Open

Hall – p wrecked out on lap 30 by a self spinner car last 80 more laps but blew up

  • Sunday fixed 

Mike –p.wrecked out – around lap 20 another restart, i was around twentieth, they all wreck on the back stretch no caution yet i see cars scatter, i go way low on the back stretch and power up to try to get around a guy right in front slows way down i lock them up to miss him dart to left a bit and boom there is a car sitting there sideways stopped i couldnt see and just tboned in super hard…

    • Tom – pwrecked out – ran as high as p2
    • Kyle P Pwrecked out

Tyler – P 12 finished with a 4x after a grueling race. Was not a fan of this car on this track but the team kicked butt again helping me through the race. Thanks Tifosi!!!

  • Adam – wrecked out

Rochette P17 you ever drive on what seems to be a nice dry road than all a sudden you hit something that is way too slick?  Thats the way Kansas has felt in the Gen7. Super slick in T1 all week trying to practice no matter what i do. But i survived many wrecks in this 1 even in top 3 at points. But couldn’t save myself when just spun and killed a few guys in the process with 50 to go

  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p. Wrecked out – i was the first caution got a hair loose had it saved but somebody came up into me. 2nd caution dove really low to miss it but plowed right in- later in the race went to slow down to miss something ahead and it came around and hooked right into the wall.

Rochette P-5 slammed and put in the wall lap 1 T2 got damage fixed but still down 13 rpms. Hung in there. Though had 4th but a blinker somehow beat me by 0.005 of a sec wtf

I don’t know all the details exactly but ultimately there was an issue found deep inside the code that forced us to post-pone the last patch until Today. This caused significant set backs on a lot of the development work that had been done to the next gen car and other cars. Rather than push out another patch with the new build weeks away, it was determined that the best course of action would be to continue the development work and release it with the June build.

DDR 5 wont be cheap and same is true of the new motherboard. It does have PCI Express Gen 5 – this will unlock full capabilities of future graphic cards….

And new DMI 4.0 link between cpu and chip set means more and better.

i9 12900k at 650 gets the nod if your a gamer.

i5 12600k is a good value at 320$. Still a generational leap over the comparably priced ryzel 5 5600xhttps://www.youtube.com/embed/-EogHCFd7w0?feature=oembed
