  • “I can read him like a book.” Leader @swilson3_ is keeping a close watch on the driver behind him, and the effects caused by the virtual air. 37 to go.
  • 29 to go – caution – It’s a spin for Strauss! @Donovan gets a little help around from the front bumper of Matt Bussa and we have pit stops once more!

  • 4 laps racing side by side for the lead bowlin trying super hard pinching down anything he can do to hold it… , but garrett lowe is coming and is now in the mix….
  • 9 to go – lowe takes it 3 wide for the win he had a run and shoved in in the middle between kirwin and bowlin and collides w bowlin and he goes hard to the wall, kirwin gets knocked clear but saved the car – 
  • It is near the end of the race, its for the lead bowlin should have known lowe was coming and would take it, it almost looks like a spotter issue, like the spotter didnt let graham know hey inside inside…

  • Lowe breaks away a bit on the restart and olat fighting for 2nd and gets by kirwin, now 3 to go kirwin trys to push femi up to fight for the lead but has a good 10 car length lead!

Passing when it Counts


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.

Nice Rear End


Feeling a Little Burned out, this May Help


The Good Ole Back Marker




Nicholas A Jones says “Pretty uneventful other than watching him make a Richard of himself. The entire session got chat warned by Nim, then it looks they were all muted and then unmuted. Then, in the same session, xqc, or whatever his name is, got DQ’d because of too many incident points, not from Nim directly.”


Patrick McDaniel sums up the whole event perfectly: With any luck he will turn people like him away from iRacing.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Darlington

  • 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
  • Groves – Pwrecked out – douche didn’t want to hold his brake and came up and took me out
  • Greg – Pwrecked by taking it easy in the first 20 laps and someone didn’t like my entry to the corner or where i let off and wrecked me and said I was to slow running in 3rd place.
  • 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…

Race : Kansas

  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p. 12.  Hit twice by cars getting loose on my outside.  Still gained a few spots on the last run with the RPM count being down.
    • Ellis – p15 – Guy in front of me lap 8 loses it, i cannot miss i pile in 30 seconds required 8minutes optional – so many cautions i get all 8 minutes fixed – 
    • 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
