What is iRacing Web?

Prior to sunsetting the Classic Membersite, we will make portions of the existing iRacing UI available directly in a web browser, without the need to have an iRacing installation on the machine. We are referring to this as iRacing Web in official documentation. This is not a separate product, merely an additional way to access what is currently known as the iRacing UI. The goal is to make sure functionality which does not require a connection to an iRacing installation is still available once the Classic Membersite is sunset in the future. This should be particularly helpful for Team and League Admins, but will obviously be nice for everyone who wishes to interact with the service on PCs without an iRacing installation. Results and stats are available in iRacing Web

League / Hosted Races

Winter Series – 

  • Brad – P. 8 What a dominating team effort that did not get the result that was deserved. Greg and I both lead race high laps of 66 and 54. Justin was with us until the green flag stops but lost him in the draft. Had the lead with two to go knowing the run was coming. Greg tried to stall them out but this separated us and I lost the lead on white flag. Had a run coming off of T2 but a late block caused a large wreck ending the chance for the win. Overall great broadcast time for the team and the podcast.
