    I’m happy to see Jack with a full time ride and an established team. I just wish it was someone other than Foyt. Oh well, hopefully bigger teams will see what he can achieve and someone will snatch him up. Just don’t let AJ teach you how to treat fans while you’re there, Jack. :P

    Nah, if we’re theming it around F1F, then I think we should stick with the site colors. Plus, there’s already way too many red white and blue schemes in racing :P

    The old one didn’t seem that terribly hard to drive, but then I also felt at home inside the Lotus 49 before they took away it’s bite. Haven’t tried the new V8 yet.

    As for the 24 hdf, quali happens right before the race in the same session. And let me tell you, after my first one it is a LOT of fun. It’s better with a friend, that’s for sure. But it’s intense knowing you have to perform and then being there to help your teammate with info and hoping they perform just as well. And strategy comes into play with who goes first, when to pit, how to split up stints. I’m so excited for my first 24 hour race. That’s going to be even more interesting to watch unfold.

    Texas is heavily favored right now. The group is organized and have a large pool to choose from.

    Alas, we’re broadcasting group D, so it won’t be your group :(. We’ll be broadcasting the Nov. 8th races.

    Fun fact: GSRC is broadcasting two of the World Cup races. If you make it in ours, I’ll try and give you a shout, George :)

    I’m debating trying the v8 supercar but for sure I’m gonna do the grand touring cup in the solstice again.

    Not sure I see where it’s asymetrical. What are you referring to?

    It’d be a band aid I’m afraid. The Williams isn’t popular because it’s a niche car, like the lotus 49. Except in this case it’s the opposite extreme. The downforce is so high that getting the maximum out of the car is severely difficult. A friend of mine put it this way: “there’s times where the braking point is after the turn in point.” You’ve got to be insanely committed to be fast. Add to that the fact that you’re expected to do the setup which in real life requires a whole team to master and it’s just too much for most. A new version would be popular for a few weeks and it would tail off. People have found time and again that outsiders are drawn in by the promise of cars like the Williams only to find the easier cars they’ve never heard of (the skippy, the SRF, the mx5) are a lot more fun. Thus why those cars get tons of participation while higher levels are populated by a hardcore few.

    Their goal with GT3 is to have a large variety that are all balanced. Until a year ago, multi-make single class racing was non-existent on iRacing except for leagues that attempted to balance the cars. Which never quit worked without LOTS of fiddling at each track. I think the reason they’re feeding it is because there’s plenty of contracts to be had, people keep buying the cars and it’s VERY popular on the service. As far as them bringing on new cars, I think they’re trying to either fill in missing niches (of which there are few) or getting outdated cars updated. The DP Corvette is coming and the V8 supercar will be updated as well. And don’t expect a newer F1 car soon. The teams are so protective of that and with Williams being successful now, I can’t see them giving us another. MAYBE Caterham or one of the struggling teams would go for it. People on the forums keep asking for it and not considering the difficulties and getting a team to agree to a deal like that.

    I’ve been having weirdness like that, too.

    EDIT: and of course the time I say that, this one posts immediately.

    Donington’s actually out now. They released it last season build.

    Yeah they’ve said it’s not so much the processing power as it is the man power to create every element. What I’m curious about is how far they’ve gotten on long beach since it’s tech track release. If at all.
