AOR iRacing GTE League - Season 5
Twin Ring Motegi - GP


What a weird track! Just when you thought you made it, and blast past what looks like the pits, you notice, you're not. Keep driving. Nothing to see here.
Seems to be a weird feature fetish of japanese tracks, doesn't Suzuka have fake pits too?

Anyone ever raced here? Me when I started in iRacing, meaning I can't remember anything.

Did a couple of races with the skip barber around here, it's a fun track imo. I think the Ford is going to be good around here.

also would it be wise to assume that stevie has fixed the problems of the Beta UI and got the in game sim date corresponding with the actual date...then in game it should be Feb 4th 2019

I'd love the Vette but my bet is a BMW. Can't give Thiim his real car. He'd be even more annoying then :p

OK, so to whoever looked at the ILMS and IMSA schedules and thought "Oooh, I know, ILMS is running on one of the best tracks in the service for this week, lets do Motegi instead" needs to have a word with themselves.
What a horrible, plague ridden POS this place is.
Just horrible.

Horrible I tells ya.

Happy to help! You're welcome! :p

Joking aside, When doing the calendar, we're not only looking at the two tracks running in a week, but also at the rest of the calendar. Sometimes we have to pick a less popular track simply to avoid a horrible track at some other point in the calendar and avoid running another track twice in one season.
It's a big puzzle.
Plus, sometimes, a less used track, like this, is a nice and welcome challenge :)

Sorry Stephan, but your argument is invalid.
Road America i'snt used in the rest of the calendar, so could have been used here.
And there is nothing "nice and welcome" about Motegi.... its just horrible.

:D
