Protest System Fixed?

DJ Yee J dives into the newly announced iRacing Protest System 


DeeJay YeeJay He thinks it will be like “The post race disqualify, irating may be removed”

In other words, he doesn’t believe the changes coming would be effective, unless the loss of irating is in play… “Are we going to take away irating for bad behavior?”

Seen in the comments:


2 days agoI feel that a drop in iRating for DQ’s will result in a massive improvement in driving standards right off the bat. The top splits are getting overloaded with the esporfs “win at all costs” mentality and if this approach eventually leads people from dropping out of the top split, we can have a less sweaty future ahead.


1 day agoI don’t like the idea of docking irating. It just means that slower racers have to deal with the trolls. There is enough to deal with in those races without making it a dumping ground for them. I’d prefer to sell temp bans handed off more often, or make a hidden rating where the trolls all get matched.

Coke Series Champ Honored

TOCA Termination

TOCA, the rights holder to the British Touring Car Championship (‘BTCC’).,  has been forced to terminate that agreement forthwith, due to ongoing fundamental breaches of the agreement by Motorsport Games. Having been given sufficient latitude to rectify those contractual breaches, unfortunately Motorsport Games has failed to do so.

After missing a race that I would’ve otherwise raced had I realised it was going official, I’ve created a bot that will check signups once a minute and send a discord notification if it reaches 5 signups. Never miss a cheeky Stock Car Brasil or Mission R race again!

NASCAR iRacing Series

Thursday Fixed -Phoenix         

Brad – P16-Ran middle of the pack but seemed to get caught up in almost every wreck. Finished with 16x just trying to not get a drive through. Race took too long with 24 cautions

Official Series


  • Draft Masters car of tomorrow at Talladega p10. Was just way too loose and could barely hold onto it. 

Draft Master

John – Saturday P15. Car was way too loose. Got hit and never recovered.


John – Tuesday – P12. Started P2 but a car netcoded me on the first lap and ruined it.

League / Hosted Races

Winter Series – Daytona 

  • David – P9.   Got separated after first green stop.  Never got back to the lead pack, but we gained a lot of ground once we got 4 team mates lined up.  A lot of carnage at the end gained us a couple of spots too.  Overall though, it was  nice to have a clean race free of the excessive stupidity of NiS this year.  Yes it was worse this year.
  • John – P28. First ever winter series race. Rookie mistakes on pit stops for me. First stop I turned the car sideways twice on the apron in turns 1 and 2. Lost the draft and never recovered. Second stop I overshot my pit a little and lost more time. I’m not used to green flag pitstops on superspeedways and it really showed. But it was nice to run with guys who don’t crash every 10 laps. 
  • Brad – P11 Follow the leader for most of the race. After the first pitstop we were separated and fought the remainder of the race trying to track down leaders. Setup was a bit squirrelly and that made following people difficult. Leaders wrecked coming to the the checkers and managed to slide through the grass for an 11th place finish. Will be glad to get to a non-drafting track.
  • Justin P12, Started P4 stayed in the lead pack until the first round of pit stops kinda got shuffled after that got hooked up with Greg but the car in front of the pack was just really unstable. Slowed us down, took the second round of pits, everything went well. Until the last corner somebody didn’t hold their brakes. Only lost 2 positions, a really fun race.
  • Greg – P6 Thanks to Justin
