NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Kansas

  • Hall – P 21 Top Split.  The set that I thought was more stable really started to let go around lap 40.  At one point was 23rd 2 laps down after Green flag stops.  Caution comes out, take wave around, caution comes out, get lucky dog.  Back on lead lap, but then started behind all the lappers and they wrecked in front and killed my car.  Limped it home to 21st.  I did get caught in an early accident with minor damage and wonder if it is why the long run handle went away. 
  •  
  • Groves – Pwrecked out-ish, self spun and then it stopped shifting
  • Stephen-p
  • Adam -p 
  • Greg – PWrecked
  • Sunday Open
  • Greg pWinner winner final restart pass

Hall – p 3  Great run, finished just in front of adam.  Best non plate top split run so far.  Needed a long run to get to the top 2

  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike –p.wrecked out
    • Tyler – P9. Was not a Sunday Funday after a grueling demo derby at Kansas. 16 cautions total in my split. Managed to only get 5x and showed some late race speed. Was not thrilled with this car on the track but I’ll take a top 10 anyday.


Official Series

  • ndy 500 Fixed
  • Ellis – Lap 21 and push to the wall and I knocked off the right front. Surprisingly they repaired it and I was back out three laps down. There were some confusion about if I could get a lap back or not but it didn’t matter I hit the wall again and then it became undrivable but no damage to fix. 
  • Rochette – wrecked out 
  • Kyle Friday P6. Started P3 and dropped back to avoid the aggressive drivers. Around lap 35 got caught up in someone else’s wreck and had to tow. Needed less then 4 minutes of repairs and decided to fix it. Came back out 3 laps down and way down in the standings. Worked my way back up through the field as drivers started to leave the race and eventually got myself up to a P6.
  • Ellis – Chris Macguire 
  • Michigan – supercars – wrecked, then p4
  • 87 cars at tallAdega. Started 25th finish P6

The Entire History of iRacing…

Robin Truswell – I know I’ve done a post or two like this in the past, but they’ve always been snippets and aspects and had vitally important parts missing instead of a full-blown “report”. As far as I am aware, nobody has sat down, and compiled/written an article detailing iRacing’s “life” from “birth” until the present day, so, as I had a spare Saturday evening, I decided to do just that.

Season 3 Road Series Updates

The first of these is the renaming of the MOAR to the IMSA Pilot Challenge.

With the IMSA Pilot Challenge concept replacing the MOAR, we have also split the GT4’s and Touring Cars into separate Open series as the C level.

we have also brought back the Global Endurance Series. This series features 24 hour team events using the same vehicles as the European Sprint Series.

we have updated the start time of the LMP2 Prototype Challenge- Fixed to run opposite hours of the IMSA series on the odd:45 time GMT.

  • Sunday fixed 

Mike –p.wrecked out – around lap 20 another restart, i was around twentieth, they all wreck on the back stretch no caution yet i see cars scatter, i go way low on the back stretch and power up to try to get around a guy right in front slows way down i lock them up to miss him dart to left a bit and boom there is a car sitting there sideways stopped i couldnt see and just tboned in super hard…

    • Tom – pwrecked out – ran as high as p2
    • Kyle P Pwrecked out

Tyler – P 12 finished with a 4x after a grueling race. Was not a fan of this car on this track but the team kicked butt again helping me through the race. Thanks Tifosi!!!

  • Adam – wrecked out

Rochette P17 you ever drive on what seems to be a nice dry road than all a sudden you hit something that is way too slick?  Thats the way Kansas has felt in the Gen7. Super slick in T1 all week trying to practice no matter what i do. But i survived many wrecks in this 1 even in top 3 at points. But couldn’t save myself when just spun and killed a few guys in the process with 50 to go

  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p. Wrecked out – i was the first caution got a hair loose had it saved but somebody came up into me. 2nd caution dove really low to miss it but plowed right in- later in the race went to slow down to miss something ahead and it came around and hooked right into the wall.

Rochette P-5 slammed and put in the wall lap 1 T2 got damage fixed but still down 13 rpms. Hung in there. Though had 4th but a blinker somehow beat me by 0.005 of a sec wtf

I don’t know all the details exactly but ultimately there was an issue found deep inside the code that forced us to post-pone the last patch until Today. This caused significant set backs on a lot of the development work that had been done to the next gen car and other cars. Rather than push out another patch with the new build weeks away, it was determined that the best course of action would be to continue the development work and release it with the June build.

Results

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Tally

  • Ellis –   p7 – led the most laps – 23 to go got hooked from behind, i may have gone just a hair high – restarted 20th got to 4th quickly – final run there were lots of crazy moves and i didnt make the right ones….
  • Rochette-Pwrecked just taken out while avoiding a wreck 
  • Hall – P9,  making move for win, guy throws late block and puts me in wall
  • Greg – p wrecked out
  • Sunday Open
    • Adam- p
    • Brian – p 
    • Stephen – p
    • Rochette-P7 led some laps but got trapped on the bottom with lapped car on the bottom while 2 wide and lost the main pack. So stuck with a damaged car pack rest of the race. Only 2 cautions so ended up a lap down happy with a top 10 after being wrecked all week but pissed i couldnt get more out of being stuck.
    • Hall – p4 top split.   Led the 2nd pack.  The top 3 and some of their lap down team mates short pitted and ran faster while off sequence.  When we cycled through, they were 10 seconds ahead.

Groves – p13 – Ran top 5-10 for the majority of the race and led some laps, got taken out with about 10-12 laps to go.  Limped the car across the line still on the lead lap and still gained a little IR

  • Sunday fixed 

Mike –p. Wrecked out – i was leading and pitted under yellow and messed up and got eol penalty – never recovered, eventually a 3 car pack we caught the lead pack, i encouraged them just go around them we did but tangled w someone who came up in to our lane and all wrecked out,…The fact that i can always get to the lead at some point is quite satisfying

Race : dover 

  • Wed Fixed 
    • Rochette– P
  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p. 11.  There is a vortex about half a straight in front of my car that makes cars wreck just so they can hit me.  Erg.   Salvaged P11 with engine damage cause still pretty good long run speed. 
    • Ellis – p wrecked out- I got a little damage in the first caution they got it fixed and Marsh my way back up to the front was running for all the outside when I touch the guy on the inside and I got sent to the wall the engine blew up. 
    • Kyle P Pwrecked out
    • Tyler – P 
    • Greg P
    • Adam – 
    • Stephen –
    • Rochette P3 few cautions in the begining then a 125 lap green flag run. Got lapped in 4th. Caution came out from 3rd slamming the wall got lucky dog and gwc. Got another podium 
    • Bobby -p
  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p.8 – early run made my way up front on long run up to p2, had to pit under caution to grab a fedex at the door, then marched my way all the way back to the lead – lead 13 laps – they guy who eventually won, i ran side by side with him for several laps before he finally got me – then i faded to 3rd where 4th ran into my side going down the front straight i spin no caution bring it home 8th – feels really good to be in the mix for the lead


Official Series

  • A Open
    • Hall – P
    • Ellis – p

Tony R – Pair of P7s at Dover Tuesday just getting a feel for the set

  • PDS Euro Sprint Series
    • Hall – P1 Two Wins at Monza




League / Hosted Races

  • Ellis – Chris Macguire Hosted
    • 87 cars at Texas-wrecked 
    • 87 cars at tally p3
  • FastTrack League –
    1. David – pwrecked out, caused the big one.  The high line is just not consistent in this car in sim and real life.  High Line only makes it to the front with the perfectly setup run, then if the cars in front don’t abandon the front comes back and the high line gets stuck about 3 car lengths back.  Was pushing Greg hard, missed a bump to the right.  Didn’t know I was that far off, but the replay shows I was.
    2. Bobby -pwrecked out
    3. Greg p wrecked out
    4. Mike – p7- started farther backs in the rash but made it eventually up to my team or we ran 1234 on the bottom for quite some time. Eventual Lee we got some cars in front of us do the non-decisions on going high. At some point we went high and David was pushing Greg and accidentally turned him. The final restart with three to go is hectic but I was able to bring it home P7 from P9. 
    5. Adam –  p

Nascar/ Motorsports Games Split?

Multiple sources have told SGO that NASCAR is actively looking for ways to get out of its current agreement with Motorsport Games. The sources say that NASCAR would like to bring its license to a different publisher and developer within the next couple of years.

“NASCAR isn’t happy,” the source said. “There’s a reason they don’t even promote their own game on any broadcasts. It’s because they don’t want to be associated with a game as broken as what NASCAR 21 is.”

2021 was not a bright year for Motorsport Games, which belongs to the wider Motorsport Network media empire that includes Motor1 and Motorsport.com. The gaming division lost $33.7 million and admitted in its latest financial report two weeks ago that it didn’t “believe the existing cash on hand will be sufficient to fund its operations for at least the next 12 months.”

This should and will concern the likes of IndyCar and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest that operates the 24 Hours of Le Mans, both of which recently minted collaborations with Motorsport Games. The prospective IndyCar game is targeting a 2023 release, as is the Le Mans title. All of these games are the first iterations of annual franchises too, which means it’ll be a tall effort to get them out the door in a short amount of time and in polished form, as NASCAR 21 has illustrated.

Jimmie Johnson Spotter Pack Update

A long awaited update has been released for the Jimmie Johnson Spotter Pack

v7.30 involves a re-work of a whole bunch of clips. It also introduces 309 new sound clips, hopefully replacing all of the new messages that iRacing has plugged in recently, including the pit box countdown. There are a few event ID’s that I couldn’t get to trigger, so I’m not sure when they do. I left the Default for those as a good way to find out, so let me know if you hear Aussie Greg at all.

Results

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Bristol

  • Ellis –   p1 – I was probably lucky it was an ex teammate behind me that he has some trustworthiness thanks to Carlos Fonseca for racing me clean but also making me earn it. He could’ve plowed me but he didn’t. When i entered the lobby I immediately knew I would be fighting him for the win. He is super super quick and oval irating in the 4000’s… The restart before the last when is when i took the lead with some great crossover / slide job moves…
    • First win of the year, 79th career win.Stats calling this an oval win but i had only one other dirt oval win in 2020, dirt street stock at lanier dirt. So I am going to call this my second oval dirt win…Really proud I could back up my good runs earlier in the week. Not in 1 million years did I think my first win this year would be Bristol dirt
  • Rochette-P8 first time ever tied for the pole. Was stuck in 4th most of the race til we actually had more than a 5 lap run. 3rd place ran out of talent and hit the wall and into me give me a 20 second required made it to the end a lap down super frustrated.
  • Hall – P.Unavoidable Meat ball, same wreck got me and Adam

Groves – P? – I had a gymnastics finish, couldn’t stick the landing so I had to go home

  • Sunday Open

Hall – p14  Caution fest top split, spent most of the race tryin to survive

  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike –p5 – Ran as high as P2 before getting hit from behind. Go back to 21st but could quickly make my way forward. Lots of lake carnage I gained a bunch of spots back. 

Race : Tally

  • Wed Fixed 
    • Rochette– P
  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p. 7.  GWC at end, got hit in the previous caution, full HP but toe damage.  A guy tried to push me to lead on white, but the car was to hurt, got a top 10 in the books though, we’ll see if we can improve
    • Ellis – pwrecked out- Around lap 50 I’m running about seventh the guy behind me dives to the inside and clips me as I went just a hair high and he thought he could take it but I was there. 
    • Kyle P P8 I’ll take the top 10 finish but could we please learn to race sensibly. I got caught up in 3 wrecks that had nothing to do with me but people were just diving up and down lanes and basically driving with blinders on and no spotters. Rant over!
    • Tyler – P 1 First ever win in a NIS race.  Thanks Mike for the spotting to the win!

Rochette P DNF caught in a spinning wreck in front 31 minutes required

  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – pwrecked out – Led the most laps and on last restart purposely went high to be leading in outside lane – got pushed to the front and then the guy pushing took this bumper and rubbed me from right side swiping left and it immediately hooked me hard right into the wall. 10 minutes damage.
    • Bobby – 
    • Adam – 
    • Steve – 

Rochette P wrecked by leaders going 3 wide into turn 1 on lap 6. Got my yearly Dega pole was pushed out of the leader by a dumbass *beeeeeeeeeeeeep* (Iberian) than while just hanging out they went 3 wide for the lead middle car lost and fell back and wrecked about ½ the field



Official Series


  • A Open
    • Ellis – p3 – Led 20 laps but didnt make the right moves near the end to get me in the right spot, none the less a good finish and start for the week (tues night)
    • Tony R – P5 in A open got checked up on the outside on white
      • “Sigh” another P5 was leader til  front when my pusher stopped pushing
  • B Fixed 

Rochette P1 –what a way to start Dega week. First ever B class win. Made my move on the outside on the white

  • C Fixed
    • Tyler – P3 in the trucks. Almost had a chicken dinner.


League / Hosted Races

  • Ellis – Chris Macguire Hosted
  • Pro 4s at Bristol dirt – p2
  • FastTrack League –
      1. David – p 8  I was slow, except for super long runs.  That plus pit strategy and survival gave me a better finish than the car was really good for .  And though it wasn’t Mike this time, my first strategy instinct is right more than not, and I didn’t let a team mate talk me out of my choice about a wave around.
      2. Greg p – pwrecked
      3. Mike – phad spun down and hit the wall so pitted on first caution for damage – made sure to uncheck my tires – yet it still gave me tires – so then i ended up take a wave by on a caution then never caught another. Once out of fuel, i got some 40 second pit penalty followed by another speeding penalty. I parked it out of frustration.
  • Adam –  p9
  • Full Throttle Sim Racing – 
    1. Stephen LouAllen – P1

Nurburgring Study Guide

Listener Rowland Wallbank from North Wales lets us know how to use the Crew Chief App to record voice commands you can play back rally style to help learn the track.

Folks,
I enjoy listening to your Podcast (usually whilst doing the dishes!) here in North Wales.
I keep hearing members of your team saying how difficult learning the Nurburgring is.
I thought the same until I discovered that the Crew Chief app has a rally style Pace notes ability.
Basically you map buttons to record, start and stop.
You drive around the course and record yourself saying “slow slow slow” or “right turn ahead, tightens” anything you like.
Your recording is mapped to a distance around the track.  So…when you leave the pit you start the replay and when you hit that marker around the track you hear yourself say “slow slow slow” etc.  I learnt it in a couple of days doing it this way.  It’s fantastic.  You can adjust the distance to trigger the voice recordings if you want them to come later or earlier.
Cheers,
And please give a shout out to the Lotus 49 and the Huskinveld GT communities.
And Team Trained Monkey Racing…More Monkey than Alien.
Regards,
Rowly (Row as in your boat, not argue with your missus😉)

Listener Rig Review

Listener Heath Ropp sent in to the Lounge his new Racing Cockpits 80/20 rig with Fanatec DD1 wheelbase and Heusinkveld Sprint pedals

Hello my dudes over at iRacers Lounge.  First let me start by saying thank you for putting out my favorite podcast each week and putting so much time into making it a great show.
I just upgraded my rig from a GT Omega ART with a Fanatec Club Sport 2.5 and V3 pedals to a proper 8020 rig from racingcockpits.com, Fanatec DD1 and Heusinkveld Sprints.
I went with the Pro rig and I must say I’m truly impressed with how solid it is.  I started out by calling Racing Cockpits and spoke with the owner Eric.  He got me everything I needed at a great price and fast shipping.  I had a few specific requests and called him a couple of times and he always answered the phone even in the evening.  It’s nice to be able to have that kind of service from right here in the good ol’ USA.  The rig was easy to put together and the directions were very well written.  While putting the rig together I realized I was missing the riser/leg mounts and notified Eric.  He immediately sent them over night to me which I greatly appreciated.  The seat is the NRG Prism and is super comfortable.  I have the Heusinkvelt Sprints mounted to the pedal plate and there is absolutely no flex.  I also got the side mounts for the DD1 and they are rock solid.  They also included a bunch of extra bolts and t-nuts was is awesome because I have already added some additional pieces.  Overall I’m impressed with the rig and with RacingCockpits.com.
I also just got the Butt Kicker Plus a few days ago and I’m loving it.  A few quick notes are that the volume knob was not attached tightly to the post and fell off when I took it out of the box and is still a little loose.  It sounds like Will Ford from Boosted Media also had this issue. I also used the bolt holes to attach it to my sim rig instead of the clamp, but I had to drill out the holes just a bit to use the standard M8 bolts and t-nuts used on most 8020 sim rigs. After about 3 hours of testing and tuning with the new Haptic Connect software, I determined that the LFE setting in iRacing worked the best, so I ended up not using the Haptic Connect software.  Hopefully they will continue to make that better.  This is the first Butt Kicker/transducer I’ve ever owned and I must say it is pretty cool and I don’t think I will ever race without one again.
I attached pics of my rig and yes that is a NES with the classic game Days of Thunder playing!  I still have all my old racing games (hence the pictures taped to the wall) I grew up playing and I must say Indy Heat is my favorite.
Again thanks to your team for your outstanding podcast.
Sincerely,
Heath Ropp #77

Mike Has Wind!

Our own Mike Ellis recounts his experience building his home made wind simulation unit.

8496AA78-773F-4036-8D14-2EFC71D870A0.jpeg

FEA9386C-6F7F-44C0-B850-5B613B0C56DC.jpeg

So I got it all mounted and tried it and really couldn’t feel any wind coming out of it even though the fans were turning I couldn’t quite figure out what was going on. Eventually I found some confetti and taped it to the opening of the hose turn the fans on all the way.

And the confetti got sucked into the fan I installed the fans backwards!

So I’ve created the first Vacuum Sim. Or maybe we call it the Sim Vacuum.

So tonight I switch them around and it’s up and working and blowing pretty great.

Some lessons learned, the SIM hub software now has wind Sim support built right in so you don’t need to do the workarounds that were stated in the video.

It kind a looks like the hoses are in an awkward position but they are out of my visual while driving. Not sure if I’m gonna keep them here or move them somewhere else, but done for now.

I did receive my fanatec hub a month early. I’m still awaiting the cube controls wheel to ship…

  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p. 7   survival mode whole race, only caught in minor problems
    • Ellis – p2 – qualified second and ran top five all night long never could get to the front though. 
    • Tyler – P7 – NIS was Fun! Finally had a fun time in a series race. Started in the back as usual. Got dinged with a 2x early as I made it through a wreck. Kept moving forward to the top ten. Caution fest so restarts we super important. Got Doored with about 50 to go as the chain reaction had me in the middle sitting like a duck but survived. Caution after caution for the GWC and brought it home in 7th with only a 4x. Had a blast after some fine running suggestions from the team. Thanks Tifosi!

Rochette P8 (dont read too fast) remember back when you were a kid playing with your matchbox cars in the dirt? That i just had more fun than than mud caked 6 year old has ever had. Found myself upfront top 3 most of the race watching lap cars nearly kill the leader half dozen times. Final restart in P2, leader disappeared took 1st at the green lost it T2 if white and spun off the guy that took 1st in T4 before the checkered

  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p8 – Qualified p2 led 87 of 125 laps was leading w 20 to go and the guy behind me took me out. Final restart i was 13th got up to 8th

Rochette P2 decided to run VR after last night on the monitor. Didnt have enough GF runs to adjust properly. I am crap on restarts and it shows after losing spots and getting em back a lap later. This bit me on the gwc was 2nd 4th bumped me, lost a spot to 3rd got it back at the white with leader well ahead. So close im getting that win friday night

Reminded why the UI is worthless

The Great iRacing UI Debate rages on after over a year out of beta and always seems to be a hot topic

What I read from this thread is there is a group of old timers who have their entire process tailored to work with the idiosyncrasies of the web browser and those processes don’t work with the UI therefore it is worse. Then there is a group of newer users who tailored their processes to work with the idiosyncrasies of the UI and therefore don’t see a problem.

AP-121 | Augury Simulations

DrOrzy

@1.) Mike Ellis these just popped up on my Insta feed. They have Pedal Sex appeal 😍😍 They look really well made and have ABS. I wonder if that means it’s just a rumble motor or something even better?! The elastomers are fully enclosed which is definitely a good thing with these LC pedals so you can’t over “squash” them and cause permanent deformation or even bust them. I also like the fact that once you calibrate them it’s saved on the PCB so no need for ingame calibration.

Results

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: COTA

  • Ellis –   p9 – started like 16th got to 11th by lap 1 – at the end of the long inner straight some guy went right across my brow as i made the sharp u-turn 25 seconds damage – only slipped like once and lost a couple of seconds other than that pretty flawless race – 
  • Hall – P. technical issue,  Tightened throttle cylinder, and couldn’t get the car to down shift the whole race, wasn’t getting enough response to blip.
  • Greg – p disconnected
  • Kyle – p6 Started P10 and worked my way up to the top 5 and held the top 5 all the way through pit cycles. Led 4 laps and pitted on lap 22 hoping to make up ground with fresh tires while the field had older tires. Came out P7 and just over drove the car the last 12 laps and finished with a solid P6.

Kyle – P.  P-5 was having PC issues restarted my PC during qualifying so started back in 18th. Started the race with shifter issues pitted lap 1 to fix it came out P26 got involved with a spin right in front of me and got some damage. Fell back to last P27 and worked my way up through the field. Pitted at the halfway point and came out P7. Continued to charge on and work up to a P5 I was running down 3rd and 4th but just ran out of laps. So I’ll take a solid P5.

Race : Richmond

  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p.7.  Caught by other cars wrecking 4 times, had to finish the 3rd green white checker with 16x.  Almost unlucky lucky.  Won’t be able to get in car again still Sunday.
    • Ellis – p. 19 – How a good run going and was actually marching forward on old tires from 19th as high as fourth at Lap 140 I got just a hair loose turn back to the right and it slammed to the wall over four minutes damage, lost two laps and this brought it home. 
    • Tom D – p wrkdt out
  • Thurs Open  

Ellis – p2 – Started 9 fairly clean race up front worked my way up to eventually leading w 50 to go – gwc restart guy divebombs from way back gets by, i then get into the back of him in the middle and get back by, but the guy in third goes by both of us and i cant hold if off and it was side by side at the line at .03 diff. Apologies to joseph lester for the bump and run

iRacing Improvement Suggestions

A conversation we had last week kicked off by Streamer Matt Malone regarding iRacing improvements was continued by listener DrOrzy.

  • DrOrzyPodcast Discussion
  • Hey guys so after listening to the current episode I thought I’d put together my top 4 list of things to improve iRacing from 5th to my top change I would make/ask for…
  • 4 : Podium Celebrations – I think after the race is done a podium celebration screen of the top 3 would be nice. It could include the drivers names, SR and iR, maybe even fastest lap of the race they did all while spraying some champagne and chugging down a Shoey. Currently it’s rather bland and very uneventful when you finish a race on the podium or anywhere for that matter, just pull up and hit the exit button. Especially in long endurance events I think this would be cool
  • 3 : Pitlane Animations – I’d love to see the pitstops being animated especially in replays rather than just watching a car suspended in midair with nothing else around it.
  • 2 : 4x for Getting Rear Ended – This really needs to be looked at. It sucks big time that we have to cop a 4x for the pleasure of getting rear ended with no lube just because someone else is incapable of using their eyes and brakes. I think 1x is plenty for someone else’s stupidness. Maybe a 2x at the absolute most but 4x is just ridiculous. (edited)
  • 1 : Safety Car & VSC – My number 1 wish! Surely it’s about time for iRacing to introduce Safety cars and Virtual Safety Cars for Road racing. Especially now that we have a decent Formula 1 car to drive/race and more to the point Safety cars and VSC’s are just an integral part of Road racing just as yellow flags and blue flags are. Now I don’t want to jump into an official race and spend the entire 40mins behind a safety car just because people haven’t practiced and can’t keep it out of the wall. However I’m sure they could do something where if there is 4 or more cars involved it’s an automatic safety car and have other set parameters for when a Virtual Safety Car is triggered. Maybe even a predetermined random number of total X’s depending on length of race can trigger a Safety Car or something 🤷🏽‍♂️ Surely there is ways. I mean, it’s not perfect but Codemasters have figured it out so I’m sure iRacing could do it 10 times better

Carquest Joins the iRacing Sponsorship Team

Carquest Auto Parts to Sponsor iRacing World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series

Tyler D. Hudson posted the official announcement that Carquest Auto Parts, the automotive parts retailer in the Advance Auto Parts family of brands, has reached an agreement with iRacing and World of Outlaws to sponsor the iRacing World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series. In the series, more than 30 of the top virtual sprint car racers will compete to decide who is the world’s best on the virtual dirt.

The premier motorsports simulator, iRacing combines a true-to-life racing experience with an online community of virtual racers. The online racing competition service organizes, hosts and officiates online racing on a variety of officially licensed virtual tracks across the globe. All tracks on iRacing are scanned for millimeter accuracy and vehicles are designed in cooperation with manufacturers and race teams, offering users a first-class simulated racing experience.

“This partnership with iRacing is a tremendous opportunity for Carquest to become active in competitive online racing, which has become immensely popular in recent years,” said Junior Word, division president, Carquest North America. “We look forward to activating with iRacing’s World of Outlaws series to benefit our independent owners and reach more customers and race fans than ever.”

The Carquest World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will begin in October with a series of six qualifying races. Those who qualify will compete in 10 World of Outlaws Pro Series races beginning in November and concluding in January, with the winner taking home the Carquest Cup and a grand prize of $10,000.

iRacing presents the Peachtree Three

After a successful debut event last summer that raised more than $57,000 for the cause, iRacing and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society will team up once again for a three-hour charity team racing event. iRacing presents the Peachtree Three Benefiting the National MS Society will take racers to Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta on Thursday, July 14, with donations accepted from now through the duration of the event at www.nationalMSsociety.org/iracing.

The Peachtree Three will feature the Chevrolet Corvette C8R GTE, Global Mazda MX-5 Cup car, and iRacing’s GT4 class all doing battle on the famous 12-turn, 2.54-mile Georgia road course. Competitors will have unlimited fast repairs to work with to ensure that all racers can make it to the finish line as they organize their own donations. The broadcast split, featuring iRacing executive producer Steve Myers, seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion crew chief Chad Knaus, and 2020 eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series champion Nick Ottinger, will kick off at 8PM ET (midnight GMT). Additional race splits will launch at 10:00 GMT, 18:00 GMT, and 3:00 GMT (July 15).

Because the Peachtree Three is designed to raise money for charity, a number of purchasable advantages will be made available to teams in exchange for donations to the National MS Society. Teams can issue a drive through penalty to another competitor for $350, while teams can call a caution (limit 2) for $500 and a caution with a wave around (limit 1) for $1,000.

Notes:

What is this series?: This series is essentially a grassroots series that is the backbone of the actual races that take place on the Nordschleife when it isn’t in use for public hot lapping. The series is made up of several motorsports clubs (part of either ADAC or DMV) which each host a 1-off event, totaling nine events throughout the year, and there is a ton of crossover with the Nurburgring 24 (Think Bathurst 12 Hour and Supercars Connection). The series has been run since 1977, and has a primarily German-based driver pool (Hence the use of each of our German brands). The series is pretty all encompassing when it comes to cars, with the 2009 year having 30 classes of cars, though much of the notable cars are from a Touring, GT3, or GT4 background. However, production cars are also allowed, thus creating the grassroots connection, with support from everything from Clio’s to BMW M Series cars.

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open:Atlanta

Ellis –   p wrecked out – the guy directly in front of me pounds the wall in one and takes us all out – but before that i had hit the wall, then a caution – i came in took 4 tires and fuel and stayed about 30 seconds for damage once damage is done i got to pull away and all of sudden they are putting rights on again! I panic to go uncheck the tires quickly hit the left then right, but i think i inadvertently clicked on the right so they changed the rights again! – So I lost a lap, and took 1 set of lefts and 3 sets of rights all in the same stop.

  • Hall – P. Sped in pits and unsafe exit after, parked it
  • Groves – Pwrecked out – early – 40 min damag
  • Adam -p wrecked out
  • Sunday Open
    • Brian – p wrecked out on purpose dnwtf
  • Hall – p WIN, after a horrible start to season, i take the win on a 3 laps shoot out.  With 70 laps to go, made the car too loose.  As a result though I was saving fuel and  was gonna make it, caution with 10 to go traps the guys that were leading but short pitted behind us.  Restart 3rd, take the lead in 1 lap.  Caution, 3 lap shoot out driving away.

Groves – p WIN – Started dead last, quickly made my way up to the top ten.  2nd half of the race, I stayed in the top 5.  Had the lead at 30 to go when a lap car got racy and I smacked the fence pretty good and lost the lead.  Caution came out with 8 or 9 to go and the leader pit giving me the lead.  I got a good restart and was able to put some distance between 2nd and take it home

  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike –p14- Got dumped three different times from people that couldn’t hold their lane. Wasn’t too much damage so soldier on I found the wall a few times on my own and eventually wrecked really hard near the end. I suck. 
    • Stephen – pwrecked
    • Tyler – P8. Finally a dang Top 10. Finished with a 13x all from getting dinged and doored. Eventful race with cars going everywhere. Fixed set was just too dang tight. Early damage on lap two had my RPM down to 1967. Had to keep the car wound up on the outside. Another what could’ve been… On to Cota.
  • Wed Open: COTA
    • Hall –p.. Wreck out, was doing ok but its road points and not too worried
    • Ellis – p10- Start at 14th kept it really clean never spin off even once only had 12 X. 
    • Tyler – P7
  • Thurs Open  
    • David – p 18, who cares

Fanatec Price Increase

Fanatec announced this week that Starting March 17th 2022, several products across our CSL, ClubSport, and Podium lines will increase in price. However, we are keeping the changes to a minimum, and many products will stay the same – for example we are retaining the basic pricing for the core component in our ecosystem: the Wheel Bases.

Following a reassessment of our price structure, we have also been able to lower the price of a small number of products, and these changes have already been applied. We wanted to give you a heads-up before we apply the price increases next week.

Results

NASCAR iRacing Series

Fri open: Phoenix

  • Ellis –   p9- Came from 13th then it ran top five most of the race ended up getting loose as the race got closer to the end and lost it with 32 to go and lost all my track position. This was even more bittersweet than Wednesday night because the guy who won was actually crashed out Wednesday night and I had nothing for him. I really feel like that was an opportunity to win that I let slip it hurts. 
  • Tom D – P5 – started in the rear.  Was able to work my way up to the top 10 most of the race.  I was better on a long run.  Unfortunately we had a few cautions at the end of the race.  Was able to scrap to top 5. I’ll take it. Time for a little vacation. Will be back Wednesday for more fun and games. 
  • Rochette- Phoenix hates me race ended early with a ass losing it out of 2 missing the put barrels and right into me on the wall was early on so went to play some Horizon Forbidden west
  • Brian P8  Avoided a lot of the carnage that has been finding me on a regular basis, just couldn’t manage speed thru turns 3&4…or is it 1&2?
  • Groves – P wrecked out, phoenix sucks.  Got loose and some bonehead decided it would be fun to drive through me
  • Stephen-p
  • Adam -p wrecked out- Top 10-5 speed last night, went from 22nd to 10th running down the next 5 cars in front me.. couple cautions and my cars gear wasn’t great for 3-4 laps and I fell back to 16th got frustrated busted my ass in turn 1 and smoked the wall. I was rolling center better than all the cars around me too
  • Sunday Open

Rochette- Phoenix still hates me BURN THE DOGLEG DOWN jackass lost it in the dogleg and shot right into me against the front stretch wall with 14 to go and in 8th. Cant ever catch a break at Phoenix and we will not ever speak of Phoenix ever again stricken from my record

  • Sunday fixed 
    • Mike –p3!- A record 21 caution of 86 laps of yellow. I got taken out a couple times went not a lot of damage and recovered well. 
    • Tyler – P12. Phoenix sucked! Really wasn’t a good race, got caught up in a few wrecks with other guys and even caught up in a wreck with my teammate. Had 20 incident point where maybe 4 of them were my fault. Caution fest with 21 cautions. Net coded with a guy where we touched rear tires and sent him spinning as we avoided a wreck. Gives me a nice 4x door hit under caution. Wasn’t a good night. 
    • Brian – p

Race : Atlanta

  • Wed Open:
    • Hall –p. Wrecked, divebombed by the same driver that dive bombed several team mates monday.
    • Ellis – p13-Ran pretty good got up to P2 had bad luck with the way the cautions fell cautions come out right after I stopped under green flag not once but twice lost all my spots eventually I spun out and hit the wall pretty hard for 3 1/2 minutes damage and just brought it home
    • Tyler – P15 finished 2 laps down. Ran a solid race but missed pit entry on my final fuel lap. Ended up running out of gas coasting to pit road. Got loose in turn 2 and was taken out by a car who had their brake bias down in the 30s and couldn’t stop. Was able to get repaired and keep up with the top 8. Felt good to finally be fast. My luck will turn around. 
    • Rochette P1 Hey yo…. what ya get when you get a pole, led the most and fastest laps? Ya get a Chubby Birb in victory lane for a 3rd time in 9 nis starts. What a way to have a send off for old Atlanta and redemption for my 2nd places last year. Dominate car all race except on old tire restarts. But the birb  frankly didn’t give a damn by setting Atlanta and was Gone with the Wind 
    • Bobby -p

Tom D – P2 – Started 17th. Was running between 5th and 10th most of the race. Got caught once after green flag stops a lap down.  I was able to make my way to a top till there was a restart with 12 to go.  I decided to pit. Restarted 4th. Was just a little too loose on the restart. Made the pass for 2nd going to the line.  I’ll take a top 5 and look forward to Sunday

  • Thurs Open  
    • Ellis – p12 – got the steering ratio right but still sucked and would get loose in the middle of 1 and 2 and then pound the outside wall – maybe 6 or seven times. Not a bad finish for sucking so bad.
    • Adam – Wrecked out


Official Series

Groves – P1 – Took the lead right before a green white checker.  Leader had been going on green all day, I decided to go early and get the jump and it worked.  The set made all the difference

Ellis – Fixed Ferrari Challenge – Spa – 3 starts, 1 finish not great but not bad… Cant wait for my wheel…

    2. Mike – p18 – ran as high as tenth but was more like a 15th the 20th Pl. car especially on older tires. Cautions play in my favor I would gain track position. One incident I missed my breaking mark by a few feet and locked them up and slid into the admin of the league luckily we didn’t wreck. Got dive bombed by a guy and almost wrecked again I heard his name almost every time a caution came out… The final restart they all wrecked and I kind of drove through it but I got too many incidents in a black flag otherwise I might’ve had a top 10. 
    3. Adam – got wrecked going for the win on the outside when the leader lost it and rec the field.
  • Saturday – SIM 500 eSports Racing League 87 Car
