TITLE SPONSOR READ:

Are you struggling with maximizing your braking zones when you’re on iRacing? Locking up when you’re trying to push it to the limit?

I was in your shoes not too long ago. I’d see my competition braking deeper then me but no matter what i’d try, I couldn’t match them.

Until I started using Sim Coaches P1 Pro Pedals.

With their true hydraulic design, they feel just like you’re driving a car.

They’re made right here in the USA and even offer a lifetime warranty!

For a limited time, Sim Coaches is offering you guys 10% off your order! You won’t find a better discount anywhere…

Results

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Charlotte

  • Ellis –   pwrecked out – very uncomfortable loose in was slow out there for sure – made it to lap 83 before i killed it putting it in the wall hard – 
  • Rochette-Pwrecked.  Tried to stay away from the crap but it hit the fan. First had a spinner come back up on the track from just loosing it on the back and knocked some revs outta me. Than just before half way a car went into the infield on the stretch  and the dumbass lapper in front of me slams on his brakes and i knock the hell out of him. Im done 
  • Hall – P 9.  Frustrating race, but stuck it out.  Trapped a lap down early because a car wouldn’t catch up to the pack and we couldn’t get wave around after a cation in the middle of green flag stops.  Got damage from a lead lap car that decided to go Ryan Newman mode on cars racing for the lucky dog.  Forgot to change my wheel setting so ran the whole race with to high a steering ratio.  But did finally get back on lead lap and survived for 9th

Groves – P wrecked

Hall – p wrecked out by unavoidable

Race : Gateway

  • Wed Open:
  • Hall –p. 19, purely survival.  Tough Top Split was car 37.  Got damage on 2nd lap as a driver discovered on green his FFB was gone.  Caught in a 2nd wreck and just limped around on back of tail lap, but was far enough from the rest of the wrecks.
  • Ellis – p wrecked out – had a good race going running about 10th to 12th – around half way i got 12 x within 20 laps from people running me over from behind in the corner. After that I spun off on my own late exit down the the inner wall and killed the car 4 minutes optional. Stayed on lead lap and couldnt really repair due to people cant pace. Maybe 20 laps later the engine blows.
  • Thurs Open  

Ellis – p. 11 – Was running good top ten as high as second, but someone spun up front and i tboned in for five and half min damage – soldiered on to be last on lead lap

  • Wrecked out four different races in a row
  • Started 14th finish P6.

  • PDS Euro Sprint Series
    • Hall –  3 WINS at Daytona, one was a 18 second comeback.

    1. David – p 7, good long run speed but suffered to much on the short run
    2. Greg pDisappointed in the setup and tired of getting run over in this league by A-Holes
    3. Mike – p21- was pretty uncomfortable around the top letting everybody go wasn’t racing anyone get the car cleaned till roughly halfway and then started hitting the wall was barely hanging onto it by the end. Glad to get a finish at Charlotte this week that is an accomplishment for me. 
    4. Adam –  p w Wrecked out
