Colours Pop!

Staffer Tony Gardner announces that they have adjusted the color tone in the sim and, (maybe?) fixed the yellow color tones many have complained about.

Tony Gardner Posts: 

For a while now we’ve been too a little too warm in tone, and the sun has overpowered the color mix too significantly, while the blueness of the sky was washed out. We fixed this and the fix went out in today’s patch. 

The “yellow” world complaint should be gone or minimized and the colors do definitely pop more now and it looks better.

2022 NIS – All Three Tiers

Nick Neben posted in the forums that he thinks it’s time to expand the NIS series to the Xfinity cars and Gander Trucks

Nick Neben Posts: 

Ok, with the NextGen taking over for NIS in 2022 I know there are going to be some people who miss regular stock car racing. This isn’t a dig at the NextGen car, just the style it provides is not fun to some.

With current member number shooting way up, I think it is time to offer NIS – Cup, NIS – Xfinity, and NIS – Truck

Cup would stay the same and run 50% races with the special 100% races

Xfinity would run 100% races with Xfinity schedule (would usually be the same laps as NIS Cup)

Trucks would run 100% races as well from their schedule offering a shorter race of the three but longer than the regular weekly series.

Running Xfinity and Trucks at 100% would offer something different than the regular open series, and we don’t often get full races with these two series. If you tried to shorten them to 50% it would end up the same as the regular series and not offer anything different. I believe most people run NIS for the longer races.

  • LAP 50: @KeeganLeahy continues to lead. He’s in a must-win situation for the @eNASCARCocaCola@iRacing Series playoffs. Still caution-free so far.
  • LAP 53: They’re racing three… and FOUR-wide at the virtual

Season 4 Build – Yay or Nay [Mike]

“Its a meh build”

“Not much sexy in this build. I’m happy for Hickory. The GT3 cars feel a lot different as well as the indycar. I feel I can attack harder into the corners than I could. The GT3 cars always felt like they had no grip going into the corner, than no power coming off”

“If they waited for Mt Washington until build week it would’ve seemed better”

“I think because the cup car wasn’t effected at all that makes it less too”

Season Wrap Up Stats; a whole new system! [Brian]

Hello fellow stats nerds. You might remember me from the end of season stats that I’ve been posting up into each official series forum section… for like the last 3 years?

As you can expect, doing this was a fair amount of effort and since I’ve been focused on investing my time into developing and supporting my iRacing Reports Discord Bot project, I concluded that doing the end of season stats stuff as I had in the past wasn’t an efficient process.

Over the course of the last season I’ve been working on a whole new system to generate and share end of season stats for official series. You can now access season wrap up stats from 2021 Season 3 all the way back to 2017 Season 1 for all official iRacing series and special events over at this website:ihttps://iracingreports.com/seasons/Statistics and analysis of iRacing drivers and official series results

Use the filters at the top of that page to help you find the series/season you’re interested in.

I can still generate custom outputs for teams/drivers, that include specified people in all the tables and highlight their dots in the charts. This will become a bundled feature for my Discord Bot supporters for 2021 Season 4 onwards.

  • Ellis –   p2 – Led some laps and just had nothing for the winner – on the longer run he would gap me for sure – he would have a 10 second lead and I would short pit and wipe it out but eventually he would get by me and drive on – great run to back up my win
  • Greg – PWrecked from lead with 100 to go
  • Hall – P12 top split.  Should have been top 10, but self made mistakes threw it away including missing the pits on green flag stop.  Insane long run speed.
  • Rochette P7 had speed stayed in top 10 through the first green flag stop when cautio. Came out just as i was leaving box putting me a lap down, moss the lucky dog for the next caution decided to take a wave around which did not work in my favor as i somehow ended 3 laps down for what was probably the longest green flag run i ever had in a nis
  • Sunday Open
    • Rochette- P3 definitely had a great car again but lapped cars that wanna race ya and also not understanding what a wave around is kept me behind em 
    • Greg p Back problems

Hall – p wrecked out by a clue less lap car

  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p13 tough top split, green flag running except early caution, climbed from p22 start
    • Ellis – p.17 – was loose on the 1st caution and took a guy out. I moved forward and ran top ten pretty much as high as 5th. About 35 to go a guy on the inside came up into me and 5 minutes damage.
    • Kyle P – P4 Started P9 and hung out in the top for most of the race. About halfway through I slid through turn’s 3 & 4 on a restart brought out the caution. Fell back to P-19 and worked my way up to a P4 finish. With Stephen L getting a P3 in the same split.
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p.4 – Ran back half of top ten basically. At one point I spun off but saved it and worked back up – I was on outside once and they checked the guy behind me hit me, knocked me down into inside car, which wreck him. Turns out to be the same guy i wrecked on Wednesday. Later he came out many laps down and waited until I came around then ran hard side be side with me pushing me up in the corners… I eventually let off to get away from him. 

Rochette P13 caught in late wreck blah

Damage Updates for Season 4 2021

Greg West Posts: 

With the Season 4 2021 release, members will see notable updates to the manner in which LMP1, LMP2, GTE, GT3, and Supercars are able to repair damage.

The systems updated include both steering and aerodynamic damage. The user experience should now be greatly improved notably in endurance races where steering can be completely repaired so the steering wheel is straight while aerodynamic damage can be repaired as well. The end result is an accident may require a lengthy pitstop but the car will have the opportunity to be competitive after the repairs have taken place.

We are excited to have these updates applied in time for the Bathurst 1000 and Petit Le Mans special events that are the next endurance events on the calendar.

AI Hosted Comes to iRacing!

Multiple iRacers from all over the world can trade paint with AI drivers for the first time as AI Hosted events come to iRacing with the 2021 Season 4 build! Using any of our AI-enabled content, you’ll be able to create race sessions that fill up the field with virtual drivers to compete alongside real iRacers. This functionality works with both regular Hosted sessions and with Leagues.

Here’s how it works:

  • Create an AI Hosted session the same way you would create any other Hosted session. We recommend that the iRacer with the best connection serve as the host. Only AI-enabled tracks will be eligible for AI Hosted sessions.
  • iRacers register for, and join, the AI hosted session. While the AI drivers will only be able to compete in AI-enabled cars, the host may create a session that allows other iRacers to run in cars that aren’t AI-enabled.
  • The AI roster in the session will be linked to the iRacer who creates the AI Hosted session. This roster may be generated on the spot, or selected from rosters that you’ve already built. When the host joins the server, the AI cars join; if the host leaves the server, the AI cars leave. If the host returns, the AI cars return as well.
  • When the host joins the server, the AI roster they bring will fill as many open grid spots as possible. As with real iRacers, these grid spots are not released once they’re claimed by the AI cars, even if the host leaves the session. If the host is bringing a large AI roster, they may still register immediately, but hold off on hitting the button to actually join the session—we recommend that the host join last so that no real users are locked out!
  • If the AI roster is not big enough to fill all remaining open grid spots, new iRacers will still be able to join.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Daytona

  • Ellis –   pWreckedOut – it was a frustrating race – i was top ten the whole time, led a lap or so, but could never get anyone to work with me. One restart the guy in front of me checked up big time and let three people from the outside in front of him. Later near the end just trying to get something going on the outside and everyone bails and leaves me hanging out to dry. Eventually they wrecked in front of me and I got collected
  • Hall – P8 contenting again, drafting help abandoned
  • Rochette P20 got hit by some dumbass running 3 wide that couldnt hold a line damaging the engine with 3 to go 
  • Groves  P5  – turn 4 pass for a top 5 
  • Sunday Open
    • Rochette- P4 survived a few wrecks pushed the leader on the back at the white but got checked up when tried to make a run
    • Greg pP16 ran out of fuel pushing @David Hall for the win
    • Hall – p1the mostly lucky timing with greg loosing his lap.  I had him stay low so he could latch on to the three car brake away.  Leader got to much of a push from inside, then greg gave me a perfect push and if leader blocked it would have been a wreck.  Good week at Daytona.  Funny how I don’t like the plate racing but do well at it.  FIRST EVER TOP SPLIT WIN
    • Tom D – p
  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike -pBlownEngine – On a restart i went from 3rd to 2nd instead of 3rd to 4th – i am a fool
    • Stephen – p
    • Kyle – P
    • Tyler – P
  • Race: Darlington
  • Wed Open:
    • Hall -p15,  2 cautions.  A few mistakes early probably cost me speed.  But I committed the cardinal sin of listening to Mike on pit strategy.
    • Ellis – p.1 – Redemption! – Wheel performed perfectly. Ran top 5 for a while then took lead – led the most laps too – 165 laps led  – Split last 100 lap run into 50 each on tires – the guy who was keeping with me stayed out a few laps longer. W about 20 to go he was catching me big time with about 10 to go he caught me and went on by, i was getting sloppy and hitting the wall a bunch. At end he was more than 3 seconds ahead. On the white, he crashed on the backstretch and I went on to win the race!
    • Greg P14, wrecked by p2 with 5 to go




League / Hosted Races

  • FastTrack Sim Racing League – 
  1.  David – p1, was sitting duck with 3 of us ending up in front, but irrelevant lap cars opted to stay low and caused us to get split up and become a 2 car brake away.
  2. Greg p5
  3. Mike – pwrecked out
  4. Tony- P9 lost the draft trying to help out some cars. Fuel strategy worked in Tifosi’s favor though with the only caution coming quarter way through
  5. Bobby -p2,

A fun read featuring the legendary Dave Kaemmer!

Dave Kaemmer, CEO of iRacing, sat down for an interview with Cnet Roadshow discussing iRacing, it’s history and future and comparisons with other driving games.

His thoughts on the comparison to other racing titles he said, “Every racing game manufacturer talks about how realistic they are, but from my biased perspective I think that’s all bullshit.” 

Most racing games, Kaemmer mentioned in the article, create a fantasy aesthetic where you, the player, are really, really good at driving — even if you’re not. “The reality is if you get a Ferrari and you don’t know what you’re doing, you’re going to crash it very quickly.” 

Kaemmer isn’t dishing details, but says iRacing’s long-awaited rain model is nearing completion, and that there’s much more to come: “I’ve been in an R&D phase now for a while. I’ve got a pretty big set of changes that I’d like to make that I think will make good improvements.”

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Michigan

  • Ellis –   p3 – started 17th worked my way up ran top five most of the night – final stop the two leader short pitted and i stayed out a couple of laps, and that was it – after it shook out they were 4 seconds up on me. Great run
  • Hall – P 22, was pushing for top 10 in top split, wreck in front of me, once again no where to go
  • Rochette P11 from the real to virtual irish hills in less time than it took to complete this race. Conservative in the begining. On restarts kept getting checked up when guys dont know how to come out of a corner right. Was good on long run but felt slow. Was just tired
  • Sunday Open
    • Hall – p10, saved a descent run for the week
  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike -p19 – had a good run going but they stacked up on a restart and like dominoes i got crunched on both front and back – car was slow so just finished off from there.

Brian – P15 no sound!  Started in the back, Avoided wrecks, but not black flags:two laps down.  Had the speed to run with leaders, but couldn’t get laps back.

  • Tyler – P13 had a great run and felt comfortable during the race. Was side swiped avoiding a crash on backstretch but managed to stay clean and pull out a 13. Thank you to Mike for spotting at the end!
  • Race: Daytona
  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p7,  contending on gwc, outside line lead, Horrific net code, inside line was holding there line
    • Ellis – p.wrecked out – was running p5 all lined up just riding and 2nd place spun 1st and i got wiped out – 4 minutes damage can barely steer – go back out just riding around laps down leaders coming by on the bottom im in the middle i get tagged big wreck – i probably screwed up not leaving enough room – i should have parked it

Thanks to Kyle for the pushing and spotting at the end.

  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p.11 – was running top 5, first stop rights only got the lead – led many laps – The last run we had to save fuel, then later we got racing and i made several tactical errors on which lane to pick when… A good learning race and redemption a bit after last night

Rochette P stupid gah damn lap cars going 3 wide and wrecked, caugt in it

B open- Kyle – Daytona P all i do is win. Started P3 and just hung out behind the leader. On lap 18 the caution came out.

Results

NASCAR iRacing Series

  • Fri open: Not Brickyard
  • Ellis –  p17- Not a bad start getting some spots I gotten up the seventh before someone ran over me from behind not once but twice. Soldier Don home on the crappy track. 
  • Greg – PGlitched out

Hall – P16,  Did better than Wed race after undo-ing a change in my throttle cylinder and making a gear change.  Not fast but had guys running around me all clean, so it was actually sort of fun.

Kyle – P-7 Started P-14 and got collected in a net code wreck with little damage. Fell back to 26th and worked my way up to 3rd. Avoided some big wrecks and fought hard. Came down to a GWC and was sitting in P-3. 1 to go and was working on pressuring P-2 when he dropped down and I got his LR and I instantly fell back to P-10 but was able to work back up to a P-7 with a half a lap to go. Did have a fan of the show in the race who reached out to me. Sorry I can’t remember your name but i’m sure you know who you are Sir. and thank you for your support of the show.

Race:  Michigan

  • Wed Open:

Hall –p 29, couldn’t avoid a guy cause they don’t hold the brake, so his spin changes direction right after I’m already committed.

  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p. 8 – got caught up in 1st caution and many others had slight damage a bit slow but persevere, w a late caution gained a bunch with people wrecking out.

Rochette P Wrecked Out



Official Series

  • PDS Euro Sprint
    • Hall – p 1, hard fought battle with 3 lead changes in last 5 laps
      • Another p1, pole to pole




League / Hosted Races

  1.  David – p2 , early self made wall mistake caused 30 seconds of damage.  Minimized the cost but was probably gonna be just around top 10, ad well timed caution paid off to fix the damage and get track position back.  Restarted 9th, 2nd was best I could get. A stolen 2nd really.
  2. Greg p1 Gregory Hecktus uses the perfect pit strategy to dominate and grab his first Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists, LLC Cup Series win at Indianapolis! Congratulations!https://www.facebook.com/102107211726370/posts/264369062166850/?d=n 
  3. Mike – p13 – Started in the back was p11 going into 1st stop – tight all second run – loosened up and got speed back on final run but caution came out right after i pitted and put be back to like 17th taking a wave around
  4. Tony- P14 new to the league was conservative on first run, probably would’ve had a top 5 or 10 with 1 stop strategy. Damn caution screwed that up
  5. Bobby -p23
  6. Stephen – p24
  7. Joe – p10

Hi Res iRacing Series Logos

Staff member Ben Regan posted in the forums that he’s seen a lot of requests lately for high-res versions of our series logos so I rounded them all up and put them on the public site for everyone to access. I’ll do my best to keep this folder updated each season so you always have up to date versions of everything.

The Main issue with the new Forums

Brandon Holtmeier commented in the forums what he thinks is the main issue he has with these new forums is you can’t see the latest post in all of the sub forums. For anyone to even know that there is activity, you have to click in each one individually which is going to lead to a lot of missed topics.. It just seems that everything is buried so deep and its not very intuitive at all.

There also doesn’t seem to be an easy way to “subscribe” to a particular thread, or turn off notifications once you don’t want notifications anymore. If there’s a way to do this and I haven’t seen it yet, I’d like to know.

It kind of feels like Discord to me, where you’ll hear these notifications in all the different servers, but you have no idea where they are coming from.

2021 Season 3 Patch 5 Release Notes

We have integrated SpeedTree into our simulation/game engine. SpeedTree is a 3D vegetation modeling and rendering system designed for films and real-time games. It provides our artists with tools to build location-specific trees and then quickly place them at our racetracks. The system is engineered to render these trees efficiently and with built-in level-of-detail (LOD) management, and has received specific customization to make it work optimally for iRacing’s requirements. This feature is making its debut at Mount Washington and will be used more extensively in the future.

Rockingham Surface Updates?

Liam Brotherton posted in the forums that Rockingham has always been one of the best real-life Multi-surface tracks and without changes, this next RTP race will be insanely one groove with the aero push. We don’t need the top to be faster, but viable in traffic to create runs and get alongside people would be fantastic, similar to the change level of Dover. Anyhow would love an update if this is even possible before race.

Tyler Hudson replied that it is likely we’ll see Rockingham surface updates in the patch this week. Sorry for the inconvenience. Texas will likely be updated as well.

Official statement regarding price increases at Trustmaster

This is to inform you that a price increase will be applied starting this summer and in September with respect to many of our products. We regret having to make this announcement, and will endeavor to limit the price increases so that they will impact you as little as possible. The worldwide pandemic has now had other effects including a shortage of components, disorganization in terms of worldwide supply networks, and disruptions in the transport chain. All of these breakdowns (with a return to normal not expected before 2022) have resulted in increases with regard to all costs in the creation and production phases for our products. It is important to us to respect our values, and we will continue to offer you all of our product lines with an emphasis on maintaining quality, ongoing innovation and ensuring that all aspects of our operations run smoothly. After having analyzed all possibilities and having made changes to a variety of our working procedures in order to attempt to avoid this impact, we regret that we are obliged to proceed with these temporary adjustments, as a result of the continuing challenges we are facing.

Please rest assured that we are fully committed to you, and extremely grateful for your attachment to our brands. We will do everything within our power to ensure your satisfaction.

Mt Washington Hill Climb

One of the first announcements made by Greg Hill in the wake of the 24 Hours of Charlotte charity race is that iRacing has been working on a Mt. Washington Hillclimb Race.

 It’s not actually the first indicator we’ve had of this, because as I noted in the Formula Vee announcement the render showed one piece of color in an otherwise colorless image, and that was a decal saying “This Car Climbed Mt. Washington.

Unintentional Leaks?

Jean-Christophe Bouchat posted in the forums that he just watched the Greg Hill interview… I noticed that he had the Ferrari Evo GT3 in his car list. In the second to last row on the picture the last letter looks like a 4 so that might be the AMG Gt4 confirmed? It could be also the Porsche GT4?

Leaks Keep Coming

Dale Jr kept the leaks flowing with an announcement on Twitter September will see the release of Hickory Motor Speedway the 3/8 mile located in Hickory, North Carolina. It is one of stock car racing’s most storied venues, and is often referred to as the “World’s Most Famous Short Track” and the “Birthplace of the NASCAR Stars”

TraXion Article

An online article on TraXion reviews all of the leaks from this week in a concise article including iRacing’s plans to build a LMDh car.

“We are working very hard to have (rain) operational by the end of the year,” Hill said on the livestream. “Whether or not that translates into it shipping by the end of the year, I don’t think we’re ready to say that. We want to make sure we do it right. Internally, at least, we’ll certainly be driving around in rain, both graphically and physically, by the end of the year.”

Myers answered that one, saying they “definitely have plans to build an LMDh,” and that they’ve been “speaking to some of their partners already” about the prospect.

The LMDh classifies under the new Hypercar category, a joint classification from governing bodies ACO, FIA and IMSA. Spelled out fully as a Le Mans Daytona h, this new prototype car is something brand new for 2022. Car manufacturers such as Acura, Audi, BMW and Porsche are all linked to having a car in this class when it officially starts.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway was the venue recently scanned from top to bottom and the hope is to have that released by sometime next year.

Monaco was mentioned as something that they would be open to doing now that they have more people employed, as well as other street courses. Drag Racing is something that’s been talked about, but they don’t see it likely just yet.

Results

NASCAR iRacing Series

  • Race: Watkins Glen
  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p 17, slow
    • Ellis – p13 – on first lap hit curb on final corner and spun out hard, took some guys with me. Was second to dead last at that point and drove it back up to 13th. I had one other self spin after the stop, otherwise I might have caught tony
    • Rochette – P12 broke the top 10 streak on every niS attempt this season just wasnt fast 
    • Kyle = p7 Started p-17 and ran up to the top 5 after 13 laps. Had a couple small brushes with the wall but kept the car going strong. Pitted and went down 1 lap and fell to 11th and worked my way up to P-7.

Greg – P internet Issue

  • Ellis – p. Wrecked out

Rochette P5 Redemption, now keeping the top 10 best finishes of the NiS Road of the week almost had 4th if i had 1 or 2 more laps



Official Series

Ellis  PWrecked out IRR – while leading it just came around it took out the field


  • Four Hours of Charlotte – 
    • Ellis – p2 – 80 laps led out of 171, led the most laps – Missed q and almost missed the race walked in the office and they were gridding up. Start p11 – was up to p6 by lap 3. Then as pit stops came and went I gradually increased positions until I was leading laps. The unlimited resets definitely helped me as I had a meatball not once but twice, and I pitted to fix it. The winning team of 3, had 2 guys that were basically the same speed, and irating as me. The third guy had double the irating of anyone on track at the end. He was a second or more quicker than me every lap, so when he got in the car he was about 9 seconds back from me – he caught me fairly quickly, passed then gapped me… Still loads of fun, blasting through traffic like crazy all the time, there is no lul in the action. What was interesting is I ran it like a sprint race even though it was four hours long I had to go hard every lap
    • Tony – p4 – Love it. Im about to get lapped by this potato i go high and he runs me off the track and yells at me for being in the way. I got my payback later when i caused him a black flag by not giving him the chicane. So also o read there was supposed to be 2 quick repairs and they gave ya unlimited

Ellis – pwrecked – NextGen at Vegas – Lame

  • Podium RCR MACONI SETUP SHOP RACE –

iRacing for Serious Racers

Kevin Scott posted his thoughts for an iRacing series for ‘Serious Drivers.” His thoughts were that there would be a membership separated from the regular platform and put into its own division of racers. The platform would be you pay a amount to be in a more professional racing session money races that would pay for the platform and only serious racers need apply. Strict rules would be set in place, something like a road to pro league but for all racers that are serious and records are kept and level ups would take you to the road to pro and contender series. Key being not racing with racers that just wanna wreck or don’t care about taking things serious.

The shadow teams that drive the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series

An article on Racer.com’s website discusses the “Shadow Teams” that drive the eNascar Racing Coke Series. Mentioning that teams like Deadzone Racing, Team Conti, Lockdown Racing, and Lowline Racing which have little official structure and are mostly comprised of groups of friends who climbed through iRacing’s ranks together. The largest of these teams, Deadzone Racing, has 12 drivers in the eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series and plenty more in the Road to Pro series trying to make it into the Coca-Cola Series.  These teams are rarely, if ever, mentioned on the broadcasts and outsiders would have little idea they existed if they didn’t look for them.
