Indy Car Issues



A couple of streamers figured it out, so at least a couple of splits were won by guys who intentionally pulled off and towed on the final lap. If this isn’t fixable, then this entire race should be invalidated, this is an unbelievable oversight


Greg West Posts:
Hi all,

Thank you for all of the feedback on the timing and scoring issue that impacted the 1:00 GMT time slot. We have identified the technical source of the issue and have remedied it for future time slots.

To clarify next steps, unfortunately we are unable to amend the results from last night’s event. The nature of the iRating system doesn’t allow for these recalculations without enormous waterfall impact. The results will stand as they are posted.

We sincerely apologize for this event and any frustration it may have caused. We are looking forward to the next time slots and the rest of the series.

I appreciate your understanding.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Friday Open – COTA

  • David – P12   meh
  • Tyler -P13 I’m well aware of my small skill set on road but iRacing has got to fix the track limits at cota. The margins are so narrow with this car. It does not reflect anything on real race day. Glad I didn’t get the black flag as I finished with a 16x. Looking forward to Richmond.

Sunday Open- COTA

  • David – P10, meh, at least had guys near me to actually have something interesting going on
  • Chris – P 4. Hit my marks and only 7x.

Wednesday Open – Richmond 

  • Mike- P4 Started in the back quickly worked my way to the top 10 started working my way slowly up and got to the lead with 70 to go. Ended up finishing the race on P4. I had newer tires than the guys in front of me but no late cautions so I could try to make a run for the win. We’ll get them next time.
  • David – P wrecked, running good, top 10 car infont bounces hard on wall i can’t avoid, destroyed
  • Justin – P wrecked out
  • Tyler – P wrecked but not totaled. Finished 26th after taking major damage just over half way. Avoided a wreck out of 2 and got blasted in the rear. Then 30 laps later turned in 1. The racing product in NIS is comparable to carb cup. Just unfortunate. 
  • Brad – P9 A lot of work to get back to where I started. Ran top 10 first third of the race until getting turned twice. Fought wheel damage but was able to stay on the lead lap and get most of it fixed. Late race cautions allowed for a decent finish.

Thursday Open-Richmond 

  • Mike- P10 car 31 top split. Worked my way forward to run top 10 basically got as high as fourth. There were nine cautions in the first part but 120 green flag lap run to end it out. I didn’t really fade pretty proud of the top 10 and top split P 10.
  • Justin – P wrecked out

Official Series

IndyCar IRacing series at California

  • Ellis – P7 was running around fourth on lap 25 when the wind caught me and spun me down to the grass and I lost all my spots ran dead last there for two green flags and finally caught a caution took a waiver around and caught another caution to get caught up on fuel worked my way forward to lap approaching the final stop. I stayed out and ran out of fuel and pitted with 15 but then the other leaders had short pitted and had a five car breakaway upfront. I finished P7, a super fun race.
  • Tom- P5.  We went caution free for 135 laps.  I restarted P19 on restart and worked my way up.  Some of the most fun I’ve had.  3 and 4 wide in the IndyCar
  • Donnie- wrecked out

A Open-Richmond 

  • Brad W – P28. Caught up in a wreck on lap one. Made multiple mistakes while trying to get repairs. Finished race just for SR.
  • Tyler P15. Solid race with a few teammates in the split. Always a good time racing with them. 2x. I’ll take that and run.

League / Hosted Races

  • Ellis- P jet car at Michigan Chris McGuire hosted. Pole hit the barrels on the green flag pitstop wrecked out.
    • Ff 1600 at lime rock in the rain went from 20th to finish P6 super fun with no damage on
    • FIAF4 @Sebring. Qualified P8 out of 24 shout out to listener Tom Gulker , who is in the race with me.  Tom got wrecked out and finished 13th.  I was fighting hard for fifth and we went four wide and the hairpin I got dumped spun off course fell back to 13th then worked my way back up to finish P8 w Damaged car.
    • Fia f4 again qualified 9. my fastest lap yet. Got ran over from behind in the last corner of lap. Two big time fell clear to the back and came back to finish P 17.
