  1. We're at that early point in the season where rounds are coming thick and fast. Barely an opportunity to take a breath before we're back over to the East Coast for a new challenge, this time the short but deceptively challenging VIR South configuration. This round has a special place in my heart as it was the scene of our first race as a ChampCar team in 2017, and my first ever wheel-to-wheel laps in a racecar. Please keep in mind that this is a short track and pitlane, and as such we are limited to 34 cars for the race. That should still ensure lots of traffic, but be aware that you may have to register early to be assured a spot on the grid. If you don't happen to make it, never fear - this is why we have a drop week system in place. Good luck all, and see you in Turn 1!

  2. Thank you to everyone who came to the races this week, there was some great and clean driving on display, and good sportsmanship throughout. This isn't a particularly widely owned track on iRacing and yet we had strong fields of competitors. See below for updated points and a link to the broadcast in case you want to catch up or relive your moments of glory. Thanks, as ever, to our broadcast team who are doing such a great job this season.
  3. Voted, good luck guys, those are some.....interesting....other teams you're up against.
  4. @cowboys647 - open to anyone who wants to race! Only barrier to entry for the championship rounds is a D2.0 iRacing Road License. The purpose of the series is to introduce more online racers to ChampCar by allowing them to interact with the community, and to offer a prize that will get the fastest virtual drivers into a real world endurance race. Please spread the word to anyone you think might be interested, especially if they can race in the west-coast time slot!
  5. Round 2 of the Sim Series takes place tomorrow night, see the YouTube link for the live broadcast which will start at 8:50pm Eastern! We saw a great field last time out at Road Atlanta, and now have attracted the entry of Robert Hartley, one of the highest ranked iRacing drivers in the world. He is determined to battle with John Allen for the win, and there promises to be great action throughout the field.
  6. Sessions are created for the championship rounds, link below for the broadcast of the Atlantic Division round, which will go live tomorrow at 8:50pm. We are currently looking at the feasibility of broadcasting the Pacific Division round, but would really love a bigger field to give the commentator more to talk about. Please spread the word!
  7. Hi all - welcome to round 2 of the 2019 CCSS. Thanks to all who came out for the race last week at Road Atlanta, there was some great competition. Moving on to the next round and we're heading to the west coast to Sears Point/Infineon/Sonoma Raceway. It's a truncated round with only one practice race, so hopefully you can get some laps in before the championship round on the 13th. To try and be true to the real life ChampCar races here, we will not be having any night time running for these rounds. For which I, for one, am thankful. Good luck and see you on track.

  8. See below for the championship standings following Round 1. For those drivers who competed in both Atlantic and Pacific championship rounds, I have reached out to you via iRacing to confirm the championship for which you wish to declare eligibility this year. For those who haven't replied yet, I have used my best judgment, but please let me know if you wish to change this before Round 2. As you can see, we are still a little light on participants for the Pacific Division, so if you know of anyone that might be interested, please send them the details. Thread for Sonoma will go up this weekend, see you on track soon! Atlantic Division Place Driver Points Wins Poles Fastest Laps 1 John D.

  9. Thank you to all who came out to race tonight, it was a great field and, though there were some scrapes, the quality of racing was very high. I will post the updated points here tomorrow, once the west coast round is complete, but, for now, please enjoy the replay of the broadcast:
  10. First race broadcast is live NOW!
  11. Should be good to go - I have accepted all outstanding league requests. Reminder for everyone to join the Discord tonight - it makes in-session communication a lot easier, as well as enabling the broadcast team to pull you into the booth for a post-race interview.
  12. Reminder that the first championship round of the 2019 season takes place tonight! Sessions start at 6pm local time, and there is a minimum iRating/SR requirement of D 2.0. As per the previous practice rounds, there is occasionally a bug where you are unable to join the session through the website - if this is encountered please try and use the BetaUI to access the event instead.
  13. Practice Race #2 is tonight, same details as before. Reminder that if you get hit with the session registration bug, the fix is to use the BetaUI to enter the session.

    The practice race will show up under Leagues -> League Sessions on the Homepage, or via the BetaUI (launched at the top of the homepage). Some people had trouble registering for the first practice race if not done through the BetaUI. As for gaining the requisite D/2.0 rating for the first points round, please refer to the guide we put together when announcing the introduction of this restriction.
