  1. For the right....inducement.....I'm open to anything.... I think we'll stick to the 1 repair format for this race though - think of it as a ChampCar specific random mechanical failure feature. Just be thankful you don't need to change an engine in the middle of a 24hr race.
  2. Haven't experienced that issue - I ran in another league on the track on Sunday and nobody reported having a problem. Try turning down graphical settings a tad, or contact support if the issue persists.
  3. We're still at the stage of the season where the rounds are coming thick and fast, trying to keep up with the CCES schedule. At the end of the month it's the famous ChampCar Championship Finale at the legendary Charlotte Motor Speedway, and we'll be right there with them for Round 6 of the 2019 CCSS. A word on track configuration, as iRacing does not have the exact layout available that will be used for the real life round. After a bit of deliberating, I have decided to use the updated Charlotte Roval. This is identical to the configuration being used by ChampCar, but inclusive of a fast chicane on the back straight that is similar to that used at the ChampCar round in 2018. The other options available would have been the long roval, which includes two extra corners in the infield; or using the old 2016 version of the track which has the same number of corners but is bumpy and the trackside scenery is very outdated. I think the choice of the roval is the best compromise between all these factors. We will try it out in the practice round to make sure it's suitable, but I hope you will all enjoy it. See you on track!

  4. We'll run the road course as it's the closest approximation of what is currently planned for the CCES Indy round. First and last corners won't be the same but the infield will mostly be correct.
  5. Track configuration is specified in the pre-race thread before each week goes up, but we try and stick as close to the real life ChampCar rounds as possible.
  6. Another great race tonight in Round 5 of the Sim Series, close door-to-door battling for the full hour throughout the field and our closest ever finish as John Allen beats Alex Albert by just 0.024s. Please enjoy the replay of the live broadcast!
  7. Thanks to all who raced and watched tonight, really fun race and our closest ever finish in the Sim Series, just 0.024s at the line. Clip below is my own penultimate lap drama, lucky that I didn't wipe out John and Alex!
  8. Hi All, My sincere apologies about the east-coast session not launching tonight. The BetaUI has been having issues reflecting session launch times and when you select a new date/time it won't update the view. This must have nixed the early session but the later one launched as anticipated. I have set up a replacement practice session for tomorrow night, launching at 6pm Eastern, and with exactly the same session parameters. I see it in my league sessions so it should launch without issue. Sorry again.
  9. After the very exciting draftfest at Daytona last week, we're straight back into the action and heading to the Midwest for the historic Elkhart Lake. Please note we will be staying true to the real ChampCar event by running the chicane before the kink (the "bend"). Session will be starting in line with the morning start of the real event, so expect the track to heat up from there to the finish. Good luck!

  10. We found out that we were lucky to finish the VIR 24 last year.
  11. 16 hours of open pit-lane track time for $1425; that's a hell of a deal on a test session regardless of occasional traffic to be encountered and squished.
  12. Yeah, I noticed that too (because it was right in front of me). The start was a bit messy with the field checking up a couple of times but that was less than ideal. I had a quick look at the replay and there were no incidents resulting directly from that move, and the driver in question then had a fairly eventful race anyway, so I'm not going to take any action. Just a reminder on the rolling starts to keep tight to the car ahead, and only go when the car ahead goes. Fun race for me last night, logged in to the session at 8:55pm, my one qualifying lap got me 19th but was up to 8th at the end of lap 1 and was able to work my way up to 3rd by the flag. Congrats to the two Alex's for the Multi 12 result at the front, and to everyone for a clean and fun race throughout the field. Will post updated championship standings this weekend. Also big thanks to @Doc for stepping into the booth for the broadcast, was great to have you onboard and I hope you can do a few more this season!
  13. Round 4 tonight, good luck to all competitors. Just a note that I will reiterate in session - driving on the apron (ie, below the solid line on the oval portions of the track) is discouraged, especially when battling for position. I hope I can trust everyone to be sensible about it and to give plenty of racing room as required.
  14. Round 4 tonight at Daytona Roval, featuring the online debut of our very own @Doc in the broadcast booth! Race will be live at the link below at around 8:50pm Eastern.
  15. The Bike layout in iRacing still uses the tighter T1 (although as the final corner rather than the first due to the direction of racing). The tighter T1 was a result of the changes made before the Indycar GP in 2014 - the "old" (wider entry) version looks closer to how the F1 track used to be in the early 00s, but I think they remodeled that as well. Lap 1 will be an adventure for all!
