Ovals are a nightmare Laughing


Ovals are indeed a nightmare but very intense, the Legends is a fun car on the road circuits.

Once you get used to the iRacing handling and quirks there is some really good racing to be had.

Accept my friend request so I can spy on you when you're racing Razz

And shouldn't you be ripping your house to bits instead of playing games? Razz

It's not too bad (read pish Razz). Also I find it best to do qualify for the races so the complete numpties are behind you, although some would argue in the rookies it's best to start from the pits!. good luck.

Pity about lap 2, but not bad at all. Some cringe worthy drivers out there worse than a KH HH day ha!

MX-5 looking good in TS colours Smile

Couple of things.

Turn of tyre change when your waiting on the grid to start, no need on short races it just cost you time if you have to reset. Try not to reset I don't think your car was damaged?

Driver number is your relative rating compared to other racers. You were No. 3 so had an iRating higher than most, although you can't see IR yet in rookie. So driver number gives an indication of how good/bad the cars around you are.

I'll bet you are sweating after that?

I need to get my sim rig pc back working again soon.

down into the mid 1.01's now in race/practice/qualy, and can average a mid 1.02 lap in races.

Led 1 race for 5-6 laps before a run wide dodging a backmarker. Best finish is 2nd, with a handfull of 3rds

Irating is 2.63 now....

steady does it
