Today I completed my first iRacing race in the MX5. Kinda fun. I certainly noticed a difference in the quality of driving in a rookie race in iRacing vs a public lobby in Project Cars. I was even in second for a bit and then got too excited and had a little spin to myself. I think with more than an hour on the track in the Mazda maybe would help :D

Car handling feels pretty good and kerbs don't want to murder you!Kinda weird how iRacing kinda just abandons you after the race though not even a final rankings in the client.

EDIT: iRacing is much meaner (more accurate) when you mis-time the clutch/H-shifter. Now I miss the ability for the clutch/shifter to give real world feedback.

I guess I need to work out if I want to get in some time with this or rFactor2. We do events in both, I'm not sure which to look at more seriously. So far iRacing seems the more user friendly though.

EDIT: Got my livery sorted :)

Welcome to our group @Yammie916 and @UnstopaPaul. Nice to see more and more drivers joining us.
rf2 and iRacing are both good sims and no matter what you want to drive more at the end, every group at RSR is outstanding and happy to have you on board.
Feel free to ask me, if you have any questions.

Welcome to the team!

Make you license fist, before you start buying cars and tracks. Then it depends what class you like. And then what the schedule says for season 4.

You need the C license or higher than D 4.0 for the special events (except 24h at Le Mans, that's B license or C4.0). There are 6 or 7 of them during the year.
But we are also doing the Le Mans Series every second week and for that you need the B license or C4.0. Next race is on the 20th this month. These are 6 hour races on Saturday and Sunday. First one starts at 7 am UTC. You always can find the terms and rules in the OP.

2nd race, 2nd place! Guess all that practice and championship racing has paid off :). Not bad for 40mins practice on a circuit I've never seen before (I never thought I would race around a National Trust carpark, but that's what I seem to have just done!

There is a lot of time untill the next real special event (Daytona 24 in January) so there is enough time to learn the sim, cars and tracks.
There are some Tier 1 tracks you will always be able to race (Spa, Nurburgring, Monza, etc) as for the cars, you'll have to give it a go on http://testdrive.iracing.com/app# when the iRacing servers are down (tomorrow I believe they go down) Just download all the cars and you can give them a go. If you cannot download them, go into iRacing folder and delete one of the free tracks, that'll bring up the download option, select the cars you want to test and there you go.

I recommend downloading the LMP1 cars and the GTE's, by far the best cars and GTE's will the the PRO series so participation is stupidly high
