    iRacing

    Thought I'd start out new version of the iRacing thread. Because of moving I've been away for a while, but three versions of the RUF Rt12 have been released, a street version, and two race versions. Also Fontana has been released which means they have the entire sprint cup schedule I think.

    In the pipeline are Monza, Imola, Tsukuba, along with quite a few English tracks. Car-wise, they're working on the Honda HSV-010 and a BTCC Civic (something to race on all the English tracks!). According to Wikipedia, they're also working on COTA, Willow Springs, Miller, and New Jersey, but I haven't seen any announcements on those (other than New Jersey, which is out as a 'tech track', which may mean they've given up on it. Same goes for Long Beach).

    So how's the Iracing thing going right now? Any interesting developments? Dale Jr still active? Whats the current membership at? I've been getting a fair number of special offers in my email to re-up but sadly I don't have a PC with the necessary horsepower anymore...

    I know nobody cares about this anymore, but I am having a huge amount of fun competing in Star Mazda this season. I've actually been participating each week (missed actual races a couple weeks though). Been able to be at the top of the non-alien sessions. A bunch of podiums, and most importantly, I am finding some consistency, and not throwing it off so much, my biggest problem in the past.

    I still can't set a car up worth a damn though.

    I started iRacing about six weeks ago or so. I was surprised how easy it was to get started. Different mindset to GT altogether with far greater emphasis on online racing. The rookies races are fairly hit and miss and I had every second race ruined by one or more idiots. Advanced to a C licence now and running the Spec Racer Ford and really enjoying it. The MX5 is a blast to drive as well and I'll try to run some races in the Advanced MX5 Cup. Tried running the Caddy but keep blowing the donk after a couple of laps.
    A little expensive once you get in to it having to buy tracks and cars but the racing at the higher levels looks very promising. I can't set cars up either but there are always plenty of setups available from other racers to try. I've just rebuilt a PC that is running at a frame rate of 84fps without a change although I'm still very much sorting myself out with this stuff. At least I can run some laps at Mount Panorama whenever I like and the few races I have had there have been fun. Got totally cheesed with GT6 as I was continually having my PS3 freeze during online racing sessions. No fun at all and if I continue to enjoy iRacing I doubt I will buy a PS4. I'm 60 now so the eye sight and joints are starting to become an issue for extended periods in the race frame. I'm looking to make the most of it before I get altogether too slow lol.

    I played it for the first time today, Mazda had Laguna Seca with I assume Formula Mazda cars at their marketing truck. I did better than I expected, but still didn't get a clean hot lap in the 5 minutes I had.
