Moonhead posted a video of a cup race at Talladega, with a twist. Drivers are able to drive thru pit road as part of the racing surface, and let the carnage begin
BL’s Offline Real World Replica Rosters
Brendon Langlois decided to start a thread to share the real world replica rosters he’s created over the last year or so. He’s put tons of time into each one of these rosters to try to make them as accurate to real life as possible, and is sharing them with the community
Graphical Updates Delay
Tyler Hudson posted in the forums that the graphical updates for the new spoiler on the next gen cup cars will be released later. They wanted to get the car physics released asap for testing, NIS and Coke Series.
LA Coliseum Feedback
Jalopnick.com posted an article with their thoughts of the new LA Colosseum while Zach Sturniolo writing for Frontstretch.com explored how iRacing played a pivotal role in the success of the Clash
“iRacing has been tremendous in helping us create this track and really put it together,” Kennedy said Friday while standing atop the fresh asphalt off turn 4. “I have to give Steve Myers and Greg Hill and the entire team over there a ton of credit. We sent them a CAD file of what this track would look like in the fall of last year. They put it on their service, they built a couple of different variations of it. We played with banking a little bit, played with track with a little bit, played with different rumble strips in the corners, and [we] got a ton of great data and feedback from our Cup drivers and the professional eSports drivers that jumped on there.”
Would NASCAR be as willing to take these bold risks so quickly without the advantage of iRacing’s resources?
“Probably not,” said Earnhardt Jr., who also serves as an analyst for NBC Sports. “I think that iRacing being able to build this track and then let their really, really good, talented iRacers vet the track and give their feedback is an incredible scenario. It’s very lucky for NASCAR, especially with the position that NASCAR is in with this sort of new ambitious thought process of street courses.”
“I think iRacing opens up the possibilities, right?” Earnhardt Jr. said. “They [NASCAR officials] go into the projects with so much more confidence being able to build a virtual rendition of the track and being able to actually have competitors compete on that virtual track. You can make a render. You have an artist create a render or draw something, but you can’t race that render. You can’t put competitors on that render and let them go after it and see what they think.
“With the iRacing software and that component, it really opens up the possibilities of what NASCAR can do and how creative they can get.”
Fake iRacing Store
iRacing posted on Twitter that they are investigating a fake iRacing Store scam and remonds everyone to only make purchase from iRacing.com, the members.iracing.com or thru Steam. And you should never share your iRacing login info

Gen 7 MOTEC Workbook and Jargon
So with the Next Gen, some of the newer telemetry outputs have seemed to not quite work properly with some older workbooks, which means that some work has had to be done to update them. Kyle L Steinwand is offering up an updated version of the old MoTeC Project 2015 Gen6 created by Peter Chamberlain (it’s original creator), titled MoTeC Project 2022 Next Gen. This book has some updated information to better match the newer telemetry outputs we have available.
