    Have iRacing installed and working. Have only done a couple of practice sessions so far. I'm interested to join in, at least once I'm up to speed on everything.

    Hi Guys, I bumped into Tyler last week at a go kart track near us. I’d love to get involved with the team in the Sunday night AMF GT3 races. I can jump on discord to run through things but let me know what I need to do to get involved.

    Talk to you soon.

    Mick.

    Hey Tim, feel free to jump in our discord and we can have a chat. We usually have someone on most nights, but Steven Latimore AKA @Giant slayer is the man to talk to. Hopefully we’ll see you there =]

    Hey guys any room for a back marker on the team? I have signed up for the Aussie mixed and fixed sunday GT series. I'll run this Sunday but will be good next season to get in with the Rooz boys if possible.

    I don't think I'm out of line in saying the more the merrier.

    For AMF, they run official practice sessions on Wednesday and Friday nights (4 hour sessions from 7pm sydney time). Sunday nights they run a practice/qually session (90m/30m), followed by a warmup/race session. So you exit after finishing qually, wait for them to sort out splits for the race rooms then join the split you are in. This week is a sprint round, so it will be 2 20 minute races, second race will be reverse grid for those on the lead lap (anyone not on the lead lap starts at the back). Oh, and if you're fast enough to end up on the podium in top split, be prepared to do a broadcast interview :p

    Each season runs in sync with the official iRacing 12 week seasons.
    Next season we are just running the GTEs (Ferrari, BMW M8, Ford GT, Porsche RSR) and the tracks will be in sync with one of the official series (either IMSA or LM24), so good opportunities to get some racing practice in at any time during the week leading up to Sunday night.

    Hey guys

    I've quietly been running iracing since June - benny your spiel on how good iracing was one night on pcars2 got me interested, invested in a VR setup and can't look back, racing on a 2d screen seems wrong and is something I cannot do anymore.

    Not to sure if I will see you guys though as I will only be racing the skippy for the next year as its cheap and after a year joining another series won't take too much of a hit out of my pocket due to the track accumulation throughout the year.

    If theres a raceonoz skip barber livery I'll gladly slap it on :D

    Yeah, I tried going back that one time and just couldn't drive on a 2D screen anymore. Practicing for COTA this week has really driven home the differences, turning the head, looking out the left window to pick up the apex of the tight hairpins.

    Skippys are a good place to learn, it has the new tyre and damage model and yes we do have a livery for it. Jump in our discord server, all of the details are there.

    Most of the guys are doing AMF GT or V8s as far as I know, I have had to spend a bit on tracks to enter all rounds of AMF, worth every penny though. I've heard that iRacing spend around half a mil to produce 1 new track.

    Yeah once you go VR ya never go back ha that or triples I guess.

    And yeh skippies are awesome, I feel I've improved alot since I've started no longer get nervous with wheel to wheel racing nor make as many mistakes as I use to which is good but yeah I figured it'd be GTs or v8s with you guys which is fine but not ready for that yet (for skill or money) .. eventually wanna get into that sorta stuff and maybe the IMSA/VRS sprint series eventually.


    And haha crazy if they spend that much spose that explains why iracing is so expensive (or as expensive as you make it) - but its sooo sooo worth it.
