  1. We're back! The series returns to the concrete jungle of Charlotte, where the wall is just a braking error away. Please note that we are using the "Roval" config. This is slightly different to the config used by ChampCar in the real event but, as that isn't available on iRacing, we are using a config that will hopefully promote good racing and close battles with this car. Please note - it's not too late to start racing with us! With the 4 drop weeks we factor into the series, you can still compete in this race and be eligible for full championship points and an entry to the free ra
  2. After the first three events on the East Coast, we are now heading inland to Road America. Please note we're running the "Bend" config as this is in line with how ChampCar are running their real-life event. Set-up is the same as that used at Daytona, so be sure to work out your fuel usage in practice! Session Details Practice Round: Wednesday, 24-March-2021 Championship Round: Wednesday, 31-March-2021 Practice Start: 6:30pm ET Qualifying Start: 8:30pm ET Race Start: 9:30pm ET Car: Street Stock Track: Road America (Bend) In-Sim
  3. Hi all. We over at HJHQ are currently aware of an issue impacting the Street Stock that appears to be linked to the introduction of the new iRacing damage model for that vehicle. Please see the forum post below for more details. https://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3797538.page Hopefully this is addressed in the patch scheduled to be rolled out tomorrow morning, and consequently the championship round will be hosted as scheduled tomorrow evening.
  4. We've had a great start to the 2021 CCiS season, with two entertaining and busy races featuring two brand new winners in the series. We look to keep the momentum rolling for the next round at the legendary Daytona road course. This round features the first appearance of the Street Stock in 2021, and it's sure to produce a good race. One tip - brake earlier than you think for T1. Session Details Practice Round: Wednesday, 10-March-2021 Championship Round: Wednesday, 17-March-2021 Practice Start: 6:30pm ET Qualifying Start: 8:30pm ET Race Start:
  5. For the practice rounds, there is no license requirement. For the championship rounds, minimum is a Road D license with >2.0 safety rating.
  6. Exciting times in the CCiS, as we head to Virginia International Raceway to experience the debut of a new vehicle in the league. It's FWD, it's disconcertingly quiet, and it understeers like a greased penguin. That's right, it's the Volkswagen Jetta TDI. This event promises to be tight and competitive, as passing is difficult but offtrack adventures are frequent. Our first round of the season featured some great clean racing, so looking forward to this different challenge. Please remember to fill out the broadcast information form (linked at the bottom of this post) so that the commentators ca
  7. The first round of the 2021 ChampCar iRacing Series is tonight. True to the real-world calendar, it is at a (non-snowy) Road Atlanta, and will be broadcast live on YouTube at 9:30pm Eastern. If you're curious about the series, or just want to watch some good racing, please tune in!
  8. Hope everyone is looking forward to the first CCiS championship round this evening. Wanted to take the opportunity to introduce two new forms for this season that are being introduced on the back of the feedback received in the 2020 end-of-year community survey. Broadcast Information: Our partners at HJBC do a fantastic job at the live broadcasts of the championship rounds, covering battles and drivers throughout the field. To help them out further, please consider providing additional information about yourself and your racing adventures. This will help engage viewers
  9. The 2021 ChampCar season is underway, and some of you tuning into the ChampCar.Live broadcast may have caught the live draw of the second winner of the 2020 CCiS season grand prize. We were very lucky this year to have the legendary Bob Varsha perform the random draw live on camera, and I have clipped the moment below: https://streamable.com/s905mk Congratulations to Andy Cossick for winning the prize of CCES race entry credit of up to $1500! Also a reminder to the 2nd and 3rd placed championship drivers (Justin Hall and Max Lupfer) that they win physical ChampCar troph
  10. Time multiplier for the race will be the same as the practice round, so a little bit of aesthetic low sun but no darkness I think. I promise we'll have some night-time running in other rounds though. I might even show up for the race next week...
  11. Welcome to Round 1 of the 2021 CCiS! We're very excited to continue to bring the opportunity of tight and respectful sim racing to the ChampCar community. Sessions have been scheduled and all the details are below. Please note the 30 minutes earlier start time for all sessions, and the fact that starting fuel is now 6.4g (this is more than last season, which should grant more flexibility with pit stop strategy). Weather is likely to be on the cooler side, and we will be racing close to sunset. A couple of housekeeping details of which to be aware for newcomers: If you r
  12. Bill Riley has been operating on that principle in 2020, let's see how the comparative lap times stack up at Road America!
  13. Welcome to 2021, and kicking off the season with a fun "get-to-know-you" event where we're trying something a bit different. The race will feature two cars, but grouped together in the same class. Based upon some testing and some Excel problem solving (workings below), by restricting the Mustang to 3 pit stops with a limited starting fill and tank capacity, they are projected to finish the race 22s ahead of a non-stopping Mazda ND. With a bit of tire degradation, traffic, and pit-entry, this difference may well be a lot closer. Only one way to find out! Ses
  14. The current plan is for Dana to do the draw during the ChampCar.Live broadcast from Road Atlanta. @Doc is co-ordinating, he'll let us know the details once they're confirmed.
  15. The schedule for the 2021 ChampCar iRacing Series has been announced. Please head over to the thread linked below for all details. There are still two grand prizes on offer (a race entry credit of up to $1500 that can be applied to a real-world CCES round in 2022); one will be awarded to the overall championship winner, and the other to a competitor who has competed in the series throughout the year. This means that even if you're not running at the front every week, a consistent participation effort can still lead to a big prize! There are smaller prizes to be won throughout the
