    My iRacing FRAC league adventure

    By Rob in iRacing

    League racing is supposed to be less incident prone than public servers. The FRAC was anything but.

    Broken Fanatec Clubsport SQ Shifter

    By Rob in Hardware Review

    My Fanatec Clubsport SQ Shifter (not the v1.5) started breaking about two months ago.  I first noticed having the occasional difficulty getting into 4th gear, then 4th and 6th, then 2nd, 4th, and 6th.  Eventually it stopped selecting those gears altogether.

    As an Australian and with hardware out of warranty (purchased late 2013) I was not keen on the idea of shipping back to Germany for repairs, considering both the expense and the time to fix, so I pulled it apart and had a look.

    Assetto Corsa ASR F1 at Canada

    By Rob in

    I wasn't to sure how this race would go. I had run Canada in iRacing's FRAC series last week so was still familiar with the track but I hadn't done any practice in the Lotus T125 on the Assetto Corsa version of the track.  Ever.

    Not sure why people would race at Monaco, simulation or real life. Anyway, we did. This is my race report.

    FRAC Season 1 Road Atlanta

    By Rob in iRacing

    Here's my race from season 1 race 5 of the Formula Renault Australian Championship (FRAC).

    While I only qualified 37th, 2nd in the 2nd split, it was still a fun race with some good battles and a decent enough result.  

    0:50 - Gavin Sadler and I go side by side through T1 and T2 on lap one. This becomes relevant later...

    iRacing is getting down and dirty

    By Rob in iRacing

    The big news from iRacing on Arpil 1st (no it wasn't an April fools joke) is that iRacing confired they are doing proper dirt racing.  Today announced they signed the Eldorado Speedway, a half mile clay oval, to be it's first speedway track.  Today they also release, via Facebook, a very short video of a car in motion on what they report is a Rallycross track.

    FRAC Zandvoort

    By Rob in iRacing

    Round 2 of the FRAC series saw the pack roll into the Zandvoort circuit in the Netherlands.  I had been able to put in a couple of hours of practice in the official FRAC session on Wendesday night and felt moderately prepared for the race the next day.

    These iRacing Formula Renaults are a blast

    By Rob in iRacing

    With the 2016 season 2 build of iRacing the team released a few new cars including the first in their collaboration with the Formula Renault series, the Formula Renault 2.0.  This car sits below the existing Star Mazda in power but includes better aerodynamics.   I got the chance to race Scott Mclaughlin and Kevin van der Linde!
