Lando Norris is currently active and Max Verstappen regularly iRaced before F1, maybe still does.

 

I changed my name in iRAcing... from Paul Taylor2. Wonder if Mark Webber uses iRacing?

As far as I know Max Verstappen has only used iRacing in private practise with his Team Redline team mates, resulting in the great move that he made at Spa in real F1 in 2015 that he had practised beforehand on iRacing.

 

 

Rubens Barrichello is very active on iRacing at the moment, it is confirmed that it is really him.

Also, Ashley Sutton, rapidly becoming a top driver in BTCC is very active. He also recently was involved in a charity race for Billy Monger and roped in Rob Austin to drive too.

Had to try the new Ferrari 488 GTE (Le Mans around the corner and this being a relevant car,  not helping the craving for new content), so i took it a few laps around Brands Hatch.
 
First impressions are that (even though i managed to stuff it up a few times) there is a lot of grip in the rear, but in default setup the car has a bit of understeer at turn in. It is pretty quick, and has good brakes.
 
Recorded the first few laps with shadowplay:

So Scott Speed just made a complete ass of himself on iRacing

 

https://www.twitch.t...983?t=06h16m00s

 

To start he gets tapped from behind and spun into the wall while in the lead. It was the 100% other guys fault but honest mistake. He has to pit for repairs then when he comes out he waits for the leader to come around and starts messing with him. Then he does it again, and then again. And again. Each attempt is worse than the previous one. Must watch.

 

I don't think he realized he was being streamed, but that's the worst sportsmanship I've ever seen, anywhere, including schoolyard playgrounds.

He has done the same a month or two ago in the Rallycross. He needs to be banned from the service.

Does anyone not think this might be soneone using his account.

 

To suddenly be this much of a douche after playing the game for a while is a little odd!

It's not odd in the slightest, he's been this much of a douche in real life on many occasions. It's only surprising it took him this long in game.

Some people Chunder are just a little odd and at times nobody can understand them...

LMP1's and the 'new' IndyCar currently being deployed. 

Audi or Porsche? Decisions, decisions.

Audi is RHD, and Porsche is LHD, if that makes any difference to you.

Signed up for for two years subs last December... then not used iracing again till now! Jumped straight into a Porsche cup race at Sonoma. Had no setup so used a laguna one. Qualified near the back 2seconds off the pace started 10th, up to 7th on the first lap after some frontrunners made contact. Had a great race reeling in and passing for 6th... then made a mistake and got re passed then caught and passed by one of the front runners recovering... then he made a mistake and I re-passed the other guy. Then I made a mistake and he tried to pass me at next corner... left him space but we touched... I managed to carry on and he spun taking out the faster guy. Relaxed a little for last two laps holding on for 6th. Great race with no practice!

On facebook a team redline member explained that the driver in question had tried to ram Max off for about 10 laps already. Always more sides to a story.

Lol at Max, fast as hell but always crashing. We called them hotlappers back when I sim raced to a high level. Always going for WRs but fell apart in the race tangling with people or crashing out. Max obviously has nothing to prove to Sim Racers, however, he's certainly the real deal and not many sim racers could do what he does in an F1 car I'm sure. I raced against Team Redline and a very young Bono Huis in the World Sim Racing Champs in 2008. Amazing to think I had I given up my real life career I could have had a shot at earning a living doing sim racing! Having come within a cheats whisker of winning the Gran Turismo national championships in 2000 (before GT academy began) you could say I was before my time   ;) But I like to think I've lived a fuller life as a result rather than sitting at the computer more than I already do.

 

Great little history piece here:

Still he shouldn't get himself involved like that. Just leave the session and report him if so.

Yes. And in a perfect world there would be no war or hunger. Unfortunately we're all human.

Thing is, when there's no (real) consequences and the person really deserves it... (without doubt)... taking someone out who's wronged you is GREAT fun. I've rarely done it. I imagine Max feels wronged more easily than the average driver given his on track behaviour in F1.
