December Build & Other iRacing Updates

This is always kind of a depressing time of the year for me, because winter is literally only weeks away and all the real world racing series are finishing up their seasons. I am excited, though, to be heading to Homestead on Friday to celebrate our NASCAR Peak Antifreeze Series champion Kenny Humpe and get to watch what is really the only race left in the season. Love it or hate it, you can’t deny that this new Chase format does provide a “Super Bowl” event with the final race at Homestead.

iRacings’s New Dynamic Tracks & More

Let’s Talk About Hot Rubber

Time. You never seem to have enough of it and it moves much faster than you can imagine. I can give you some funny lines about why it has been so long since I have last written one of these blogs, but the straight truth is that I just haven’t had the time!

Tyler Hudson’s NASCAR iRacing Championship Blog

What’s it like to be a NASCAR Champion?  Let’s back up a little bit first.  I remember sitting at my PC a few years ago and watching as Richard Towler walked onto the stage at Homestead Miami to receive his NASCAR iRacing.com Series World Championship check of $10,000.  Then, watching him walk into the media center with Dale Earnhardt Jr, sit next to him, and answer questions from the media.  In my gut I had envy.  I wanted to be that guy.  I always dreamed growing up of making it in the sport of NASCAR.  Ever since I was a kid that was all I had ever wanted in life more than anything.  It made other challenges in life, like school, especially hard because I couldn’t think about anything else.  I am the type of person who, when I get something in my head, nothing else matters.  Literally.  It consumes every thought, every day dream, every action.  You’re drawn to friends who are racing fans. So in school all we talked was racing.  My senior project in 2004 was on the advances of NASCAR Safety (haha).  So you get the point.  It is all I wanted.

1967: The Summer of Lo…tus 49

As part of our ongoing commitment to make iRacing one of the best driving video games, we aren’t afraid to do a little bit of experimenting. Our team of online racing experts is hard at work trying new things to keep iRacing one of the most innovative, high-performance live online racing games available.

Now For the Lotus…

There were a lot of places where people were loving the summer of 1967, but the cockpit of an F1 car with a brand new 3-liter engine was not one of them. The engine formula had just been changed in 1966 to allow 3 liters of displacement, up from 1.5 liters in previous years. 1967 was the first year the teams had time to produce new engines to fully exploit the additional power. And that power was considerable—in just about a single year the drivers (and car designers) had to cope with a doubling of the power, from 200 to 400 horsepower. This created some problems.
