2008S2 Week 10 – iRacing Late Model Tour – USA

This race couldn’t really have been more dissapointing… I joined without a qualifying time and started 12th out of twelve cars, I was also iRated in 12th and noticed pretty quickly that the person rated #1 was Dale Earnhardt Jr….

So, I lined up for the race and as the pace car pulled in I was ready to have a good race… It was going well and I was in 10th-place on lap four when – suddenly – I was disconnected as an incoming telephone called seemed to disconnect me.

Unfortunately for the person in 12th when I disconnected, I continued to be visible to them while they were invisible to me! Unknown to me I was involved in an incident with a car I couldn’t even see…

So, the best bit of the race wound up being when I was lapped by Dale Earnhardt Jr, who won his 20th iRacing Oval race from 58 starts!

I rejoined the server after my disconnection and put some laps in… Why? It’s always best to do this, because you can run clean laps with no pressure and increase your Safety Rating. I finished 11th and had no incidents apart from the one already mentioned. My fastest lap was a 22.788 on lap nine.

  1. [..YouTube..] This stuff is sooo cool. Wish they made it for like xbox 360.. not everyone has badass computers. Love the Short Tracks like Oxford Plains Speedway (been there). I would deff pay up to $100 for that game if it was for 360.

  2. [..YouTube..] lol Its not a game. Its the most advanced open to public motorsport simulation ever. You guys should join, Dale Jr and others are always on the forums chatting with us. If your lucky you will race him. Half of membership are real world racers.

  6. [..YouTube..] @99boyz But he didn’t say that, you said that. He said it was good all by himself, the connection between Jr and him saying it was good was made by you. Try reading it again.

    By the way, all your DVDs and games you ‘own’ are the property of the studio who made them. If you like I can send you a DVD with an exe on it. It won’t work, but at least you would own a data disc. And tell me this… Can you name an MMO-style piece of software which the users own?

  9. [..YouTube..] @99boyz MMO type releases (like iRacing is) can. Their server dies, so does your game.

    How many of those games on your shelf are MMO type releases, like iRacing is?

I grew up in a household where waking up at 2am to watch races in Australia or Japan were the norm. We were huge fans of motor racing, so playing racing games seems like a natural extension of that.

My first racing game addiction was with Geoff Crammond's 'Formula 1 Grand Prix' released in 1992 on the Commodore Amiga. This game kept me going for a long time thanks to various editing tools which were available, and I continued to play it until I owned a PC. After that, I played through most of the Papyrus and Image Space Inc. titles, but have most fond memories of Grand Prix Legends.

I founded a major sim racing site that led to my employment at iRacing, Image Space Inc. and later on, Studio 397. The difficulty in working in the industry is how little time you often have to play your own games. Quite often I escape with space games instead!
