We’re getting closer to the start of this season. I hope you are all as excited as I am :)

Few extra tips and reminders :)
  • it’s a long race. You can’t win it in turn 1, but you can lose it in turn 1.
  • be patient, don’t force passes. If you are faster, you will find a way past.
  • when lapping or being lapped, be predictable (both parties). Don’t move out of the way. Hold your line, enable the faster driver to pass safely, e.g. on a straight (you can lift or brake a little early)
  • stay calm and remember your practice. Don’t panic. You’re all perfectly capable of racing safely. Be safe and be smart.
  • check your strategy and fuel in your setup. Don’t go out with the wrong fuel load :)
  • don’t bother spending time on the setup. Spend it on training to drive consistent. When you are consistent, you can gain time with a setup. Until then, being inconsistent costs more time than the best setup in the world can give you.
    (Iracing quote: before looking under the hood, fix the nut behind the wheel)
  • HAVE FUN!
Wow, I have to remember that quote!

And remember to keep silent until everyone has finished. Last lap may be costly if you lose your concentration

No worries, no stupid questions:)
I recommend installing discord and requesting the permissions now-ish.

You won’t need a microphone but listening in is important, as we might have to restart the lobby, improvise something on the race start or otherwise need to communicate.

Would it be possible for you to install discord?

awesome!
See you soon on track!
Quick note: once I'm in game, I will not see Steam messages and the likes (drawback of VR).
So, if you have any questions, problems, etc. please use voice in discord.

Thank you!

easiest strategy: edit your setup to have a full tank - you'll be fine with no stop.
otherwise, create some pit strategies, e.g. refill, tires, damage (repair) and any combo of them

Well, that was not the race I was dreaming for :(
My quali was not good but I went with my race race, so place 16th was fine but than...
In the second lap (1st race lap) I had contact with @Ron Steel watched it several times and not sure if it is my fault or yours ones, anway I went into wall, had damage, went to pit and...

I hope next one it will be much better

Well it was an exciting first race; I am really impressed by the racing skills you guys showed, and the pace is really high.

I had an ok qualification I did a personal best 1.46.something and I cannot ask for more than that. On the first lap I was hit in the rear and got some damage witch followed, me the rest of the race (stupid of me not to pit) but I know that for next race heheh, the damage made my car almost impossible to take left turns :) witch resulted in many spins.

Congratulations to the top 3 guys :) well fucking done and for all the rest really good and clean driving :) see you guys next week.
