2020 ChampCar iRacing Series: Round 2, Sonoma Raceway - 2/5/2020, 2/12/2020


Recommended Posts

After such a great turnout for Round 1, we look forward to keeping the momentum going as we take the circus to the west coast and the home of the 2019 CCES Championship Decider, Sonoma Raceway. This round will see the league debut of the Pontiac Solstice. Often derided as the "Slowstice", and the source of countless complaints about a lack of power, handling, or balance, the Solstice is a perfect addition to a representative ChampCar field. 


Good luck!

I am still flabbergasted that I actually spun that car during the practice round.    These cars have the rotational stability of a cruise ship in dry dock.


Still looking forward to the race and navigating the sea of Sonoma in my mini Boaty McBoat-face!   :)

Me too, a tricky car at a track for which I have no feel and very little experience.


Yes, I dislike this track.  Both of the hairpins murder my time and momentum.  I spent 45 mins last night trying to get better and I only found like .2 tenths maybe.  Still wayyyyy off the pace of the top 8 most likely.

Race was fun for the first 35 mins running with @Rapido, sorry to see you get taken out by lap traffic.  The start was a cluster, not sure exactly what happened but it didn't look fun.  See you guys at VIR South!

Wasn't me this time!  I do want to say sorry to John D Allen.  I  put 4 off getting the esses wrong and tried to save it but didn't.  I'm getting better :)
