Nearly 6 years since my last race and over 9 since I actually practiced and played regularly. Just renewed for a month and downloading some serious amount of GB in updates.

my dinasour of a PC might cope at the lowest settings. This lockdown might allow me to run some races in the coming weeks.

Back in the day I liked running Skip Barber, Lotus 79 and Williams F1 - open wheelers at classic road racing circuits.

I am not quick, but happy to see I still have an A road licence.

Where do you work that has a sim rig? Is it a professional setup running vehicle dynamics software like simpack? Just wondering, we have a rig in our office!

In late 2018 I associated with a sim rig and hardware manufacturer. It just made sense to join my engineering expertise to his excellent products. I helped to develop and test a premium line of products (hidraulic brakes, direct drive servomotors, motion with VR and made to order software). So we transformed a part of his factory showroom in a drivers training center, a service for Pro & amateurs, real & virtual, that uses the flagship simrig with the assistance of a track engineer /driver coach using telemetry and radio comm to the driver.

Of course, the side effect is that when there is time in between customers, I can do some racing. I try to do a bit of all series to be used to the different driving styles and setups for FWD - RWD - Oval and dirt. So naturally I cannot train a lot and be fast in all of them... but I have a lot of fun.

Thought I'd have a look at this for some fun, but woefully short on RAM apparently. :(

Finally have a Mac that will run iRacing and signed up.

Started off with the MX-5 at Laguna Seca and couldn't string a complete lap together. Turns out Laguna Seca is really hard. I only loaded that up first because I knew the track from the Gran Turismo games.

But also couldn't get the MX-5 around Lime Rock either. Was close to quitting then tried the SCCA Spec Ford and now loving it. That car suits my wring the car's neck driving style because it doesn't spin at the exit of every corner like the MX-5 does.

It's sort of confusing how I actually get into a race though?

Select the series you want to race in at the top, then click on the green Race button. There a list of sessions will come up which when the time comes around, you can join (the time will turn red when you can sign up)

When the time comes to race, the browser will give you the option to join the session. Before the time comes, you can join a practice session to get some practice in before the official one. When in your practice session, assuming you've signed up, itll let you know when you can join.

RE MX-5, iirc it's on the new tyre model so it does take a couple of laps for the tyres to come in and the car stops being such a tail happy thing. Once outta rookie the cars become a tad more predictable I've found anyway :D
