  1. Today we are announcing the iRacing eSports Network. Starting July 2nd, this will become the new home for our broadcasts that you currently find on our existing YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/iRacingTV). No this channel will not go away. What we are going to do is have a channel for broadcasts and one for content. We feel this will allow us to make it easier for all of you to find our content without having to scroll past broadcast after broadcast. The new network will also allow us to push the envelope of innovation for sim racing, broadcasting, and eSports. This will not change or affect iRacing Live. That will still progress on its current path showcasing official iRacing broadcasts as well as select broadcasts from community broadcasters. If you are a broadcaster and want to be added to iRacing Live, feel free to email me at drew.adamson@iracing.com. iRacing Live has grown into a very successful platform and will continue to build upon that momentum. Right now we are going with a limited release of broadcasters and series to get the eSports Network up and running and to make sure the launch is successful. In the near future, more series and possibly more broadcasters will make their way onto the network. Cheat Sheet for Broadcasting • iRacingLive – website featuring both official broadcasts and community broadcasts • www.youtube.com/iracingtv - official iRacing video content (trailers, teasers, interviews, etc.) • www.youtube.com/channel/UCUowOZM6lA-tS77XGmuzhbw - Official iRacing eSports Broadcast Channel We are very excited about this new platform and hope you’ll enjoy it as well!
  2. Fra i numerosi video dedicati ad iRacing, è particolarmente interessante il trailer che potete ammirare qui sotto, che ci mostra il confronto diretto fra la Porsche 911 RSR del simulatore americano e quella reale impegnata sul circuito di Le Mans.
  3. The NPAiS race at Daytona is Tuesday, February 20th and that marks the beginning of our 2018 World Championship season. We are ramping up the number of viewing options to help broaden the reach of our eSports. This year we will be broadcasting on: iRacing Live Facebook Twitch Youtube The Blancpain GT World Championship gets under way March 3rd with its running of the 6 Hours of Bathurst and the iRacing World Championship Grand Prix starts its season at Interlagos on March 17th. All three series will be broadcasted on the channels listed above. Scheduling and standings can be found here.
  4. Il 5 giugno prossimo sarà disponibile la nuova build Season 3 2018 di iRacing. Saranno tre le novità più importanti che ci offrirà il simulatore americano, con l'arrivo della Subaru WRX STI Rallycross, il tracciato di Detroit Belle Isle e la spettacolare Porsche 911 RSR. You can race the Subaru WRX STI VT17x Rallycross Supercar in the iRacing Rally Cross (iRX) series starting June 5th.
  5. Il team di iRacing ha annunciato con due trailer di anteprima le novità che saranno disponibili con la prossima build del software, a partire dal 5 Giugno: si tratta della spettacolare Porsche 911 RSR e del tracciato americano di Detroit Belle Isle! Do you have what it takes to conquer Le Mans in the new Porsche 911 RSR? Available to all members on June 5th. Located on the Detroit River, Belle Isle has hosted a multitude of auto races since first opening in 1992. Currently hosting the Verizon IndyCar Series and IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship among others, the 2.35 mile, 13-turn circuit is located on a picturesque island minutes from downtown Detroit.
  6. La famosa serie americana Nascar ha lanciato oggi il suo nuovo torneo ufficiale eSport, che si disputerà naturalmente con iRacing. L'obiettivo dichiarato del torneo è anche quello di "attirare ed identificare giovani talenti" ! NASCAR announced today the formation of a youth esports racing series, the first esports competition created to attract and identify young talent. The series will be hosted on iRacing, the world’s premier racing simulation platform. NASCAR’s youth esports series establishes an easily accessible entry point to real-world racing and provides young competitors with an unparalleled simulation experience on iRacing’s ultra-realistic software. The youth series will be open to participants ages 13-16 worldwide. The inaugural 12-week season is slated to kick off in June on virtual renderings of iconic short tracks like Langley Speedway, The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. The regular season, comprised of the first eight events, will be open to all participants. The 50 racers accumulating the most points over the regular season will qualify to compete in the four-week playoffs. The top 30 in points after the playoffs will advance to a final championship event at the iconic Martinsville Speedway. The season will include a mix of single and heat race formats. Participants can register today on NASCAR.com/iRacing. NASCAR currently sanctions the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing Series, an esports series now in its ninth season and features the most elite oval sim-racers competing on virtual versions of NASCAR-sanctioned race tracks. The addition of a youth series on iRacing will provide driver’s seat experience for competitors looking to hone their talent, including those with professional racing aspirations. “As we expand our presence in esports, NASCAR is uniquely positioned as the only sport that can develop skills transferable to real world competition,” said Blake Davidson, NASCAR vice president of consumer innovation. “We’re excited to see the young, diverse and global talent pool this series attracts, especially as we cultivate our next generation of drivers.” William Byron, a rookie driving the iconic No. 24 Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, started his racing career on iRacing in 2011 at 14 years old. In just two years on iRacing, Byron accumulated more than 100 wins and finished in the top five in an additional 203 races. Now, only seven years later Byron is leading the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings in NASCAR’s top series, complementing a NASCAR Xfinity Series championship (2017), NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship (2015), and Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (2016) and Xfinity Series (2017). “NASCAR has been at the forefront of competitive online racing for years and its enhanced involvement in esports will be even more evident through the launch of its youth esports series on iRacing,” said Tony Gardner, iRacing president. “NASCAR drivers have used iRacing to accelerate their development beginning at a young age, as well as to hone their skills throughout their careers. We look forward to cheering on the alumni from the youth series when they compete at the highest levels of NASCAR in the years to come.” The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season continues with the KC Masterpiece 400 at Kansas Speedway on Saturday, May 12 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
  7. I thought I would make a post in regard to the new or updated content that will be in the build next week. Some of it you might know about and some you may not.

  10. Il team di iRacing sta rilasciando in queste ora la nuova Build Season 2 2018 del simulatore americano. La nuova release, oltre al consueto bugfixing e migliorie varie (come ad esempio all'interfaccia beta del software o alle animazioni delle mani del pilota), ci mette a disposizione anche numerosi contenuti inediti e gustosi, come l'Audi R18, la Dallara Indycar IR18, la Porsche 919 Hybrid e ben 4 circuiti aggiornati ed inediti. Per tutti i dettagli e commenti visitate questo topic del forum dedicato. This release features a host of new content, updates, features, and fixes for the iRacing experience. We hope you have fun out on the track of your choice! Some highlights include: • Additional functionality and performance enhancements for the iRacing BETA Interface • Custom Car Classes • Extensive Rallycross Race Control updates • Dirt Oval cushion modeling improvements • Complete hand-over-hand animations for all vehicles • Brand new crowd system • Audi R18 • Dallara IR18 • Porsche 919 Hybrid • The Dirt Track at Charlotte • Limaland Motorsports Park • Pocono Raceway track upgrade • Sonoma Raceway (Rallycross)
  11. Dave Kaemmer in persona ha pubblicato un lunghissimo ed altamente tecnico blog post per spiegare il nuovo modello v7 dei pneumatici di iRacing che arriverà su alcune vetture del simulatore americano con la build del 6 Marzo. Kaemmer risponde anche ad alcune interessanti domande fatte sul forum di iRacing. ICYMI, Dave Kaemmer wrote a blog post about the development of our new tire model. He also followed up by answering some of the FAQs in his forum post. If you feel like flexing those brain muscles, the full write-up can be found here. Why not update all the cars at once with the new tires? Going to the V7 model is like having a new tire manufacturer come into a race series. Cars are often designed around the tires. Changing tire constructions and/or rubber compounds can change a car’s handling quite a lot, even in the real world. So a lot of testing and setup work needs to be done. It’s better to get feedback from a more limited number of cars at first. If there is something in the model that needs to be changed, we can do that without messing up setups for all the cars. Also, more work is necessary in the V7 code to properly do dirt. I think in the long run it will be better, but we’ll probably stick with V6 on dirt for a while. Dirt masks the over-the-limit breakaway that is one of the biggest issues on pavement.
  12. Il team di iRacing ha annunciato ufficialmente quelle che saranno le novità presenti nella prossima build del simulatore, che sarà disponibile a partire dal 6 Marzo. In primis potremo metterci al volante dei poderosi prototipi di classe LMP1, ovvero Porshe 919 Hybrid ed Audi R18 etron Quatrro, ma non mancherà anche la nuovissima Indycar IR-18 dell'attuale stagione USA. Oltre ad una versione migliorata ed aggiornata della pista di Pocono, saranno ben tre i circuiti dedicati agli appassionati del rallycross, ovvero Limaland Motorsports Park, Dirt Track Charlotte e Sonoma, che vedete già nel promo trailer qui sotto. I thought I would make a post in regard to the new or updated content that will be in the build next week. Some of it you might know about and some you may not. Two new LMP1 cars: The Porshe 919 Hybrid and the Audi R18 etron Quatrro. These two new cars will run in two new Lemans Series, an individual series and a team series with an LMP2 and a GTE Class. iRacing LeMans Series and iRacing Lemans Endurance Series. The Lemans Series will run every two hours with a 12-week schedule. 60-90 minute races as a regular official series. Then, every other week we will run the iRacing Lemans Endurance Series with 2-time slots. Saturday at 7:00GMT and Saturday at 19:00GMT. These are 6-hour sessions, and they are team events.

  13. Fra i numerosi video di confronto dedicati al mondo dei simulatori di guida, oggi vogliamo segnalarvene due in particolare: il primo video ha per protagonista l'Alfa Romeo 4C di Assetto Corsa sul circuito di Laguna Seca che, in modo assolutamente spettacolare, viene paragonata con la sua controparte reale sullo stesso tracciato. Anche grazie ad un montaggio video impeccabile, si fa fatica a capire quale dei due schermi sia quello simulato! Il secondo filmato è stato invece realizzato dall'esperto pilota reale danese Nicki Thiim, che ha messo in confronto diretto la Porsche 911 Cup disponibile in Assetto Corsa, iRacing e RaceRoom.
  14. William Byron, esordiente pilota ventenne della NASCAR che debutta proprio domani nella prestigiosa Daytona 500, ha iniziato la sua carriera proprio al simulatore di guida. Proprio la NASCAR infatti ha investito già dal 2017 in nuove iniziative rivolte ai driver virtuali, come parte di una strategia per sfruttare l'industria degli e-sport in rapida crescita ed aiutare cosi a costruire una nuova generazione di fan. Byron ha iniziato la sua carriera agonistica online, gareggiando in centinaia di gare nel popolare iRacing. La sua rapida ascesa attraverso i ranghi della NASCAR è una prova che gli e-sport possono realmente portare i fans a diventari piloti veri. "La cosa più importante che mi ha attratto di iRacing sono stati gli altri ragazzi della NASCAR che erano lì - Travis Pastrana si allena da tempo, Dale Earnhardt Jr. ne ha parlato in un paio di conferenze stampa, cosi come altri - così ho visto come avrei potuto entrare in questa piattaforma che era simile alle corse, ed è stato il mio modo di relazionarmi con quello che stavano facendo quei ragazzi ", ha detto Byron a FOX Business. "Penso che gli e-sport possano aiutare i fan a relazionarsi meglio al nostro sport." Entro il 2020, si stima che gli e-sport valgano un fatturato annuo di 5 miliardi di dollari, secondo la società di ricerche di mercato Activate. Un numero crescente di fan e aspiranti piloti stanno ottenendo un primo approccio alla NASCAR giocando a iRacing, o ad altri titoli. Anche i piloti NASCAR sono noti per aver partecipato agli eventi iRacing o aver utilizzato la piattaforma per fare alcuni giri di pratica. "I giovani piloti stanno arrivando. Il gioco e gli e-sport sono una scelta naturale", ha dichiarato Blake Davidson, Vice Presidente NASCAR. "Fare leva sulle stelle della NASCAR attraverso gli e-sport per attirare nuovi fan è davvero eccellente." La spinta della NASCAR nel reclutare nuovi fan e talenti sarà vitale per uno sport che ha sofferto di presenze ed ascolti tv in calo. Hanno cambiato il formato delle gare NASCAR la scorsa stagione, dividendo ogni gara in tre fasi, nella speranza di creare più competizione. Altre mosse, come la programmazione di gare aggiuntive nei giorni feriali, sono state discusse. Nel breve periodo, NASCAR conta su un afflusso di giovani piloti e una base di fan per essere fedele ai marchi che sponsorizzano la NASCAR. Joe Favorito, un veterano consulente di marketing sportivo e professore alla Columbia University, ha dichiarato che NASCAR si distingue tra gli altri sport nei suoi sforzi per creare giochi con licenza. La NASCAR ha sostenuto le corse online risalenti ad almeno 15 anni fa, ha osservato Davidson, "prima che il termine e-sports fosse coniato." Ma la sfida per tutte le proprietà sportive è quella di connettersi con un pubblico più giovane e adattarsi alle abitudini di visione della TV di quella generazione. Per NASCAR, i nuovi investimenti in e-sport creano un'opportunità per interagire con i fan sui dispositivi mobili e integrare gare virtuali con gare in pista. "Creare tifosi giovani e casuali per provare il brivido del volante, è lì che si trova l'opportunità", ha detto Favorito. Byron, che ha iniziato la sua prima stagione in qualità di campione in carica della XFINITY Series, non è riuscito a mettersi al volante fino all'età di 15 anni, in ritardo rispetto agli standard NASCAR. Ora si unisce a giovani star affermate come Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott e Ryan Blaney, un'infusione di giovani in pista dopo i ritiri dei ben noti piloti Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart e Earnhardt. Byron ha spiegato che il passaggio da iRacing alla pista non è stato senza soluzione di continuità, affermando che un gioco di simulazione non può preparare completamente i conducenti per gli elementi fisici della guida di una macchina da corsa e la preparazione richiesta per guidare sotto pressione. Le gare virtuali hanno aiutato Byron a imparare le traiettorie, dai pit stop alla strategia. "Non sono cresciuto in una famiglia da corsa, quindi iRacing è stata la mia prima occasione per mettere alla prova le mie capacità, ed è ciò che mi ha aiutato a darmi un punto di partenza. È così che inizia un sacco di gente ", ha detto Byron, che guiderà la Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 numero 24 per Hendrick Motorsports. NASCAR ha una competizione ufficiale su iRacing, che presenta piste virtuali e auto create utilizzando la scansione laser tridimensionale. Una lega pro iRacing sostenuta dai team di NASCAR è anche in cantiere per un lancio nel 2018, secondo un rapporto di Sports Business Journal. Si dice che le piste stiano sviluppando una propria lega e si preparano ad ospitare tornei di videogiochi durante i fine settimana di gara. La serie NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze iRacing corre ogni due settimane su piste virtuali come la Daytona International Speedway, che ospita domani la Daytona 500 come apertura stagionale. La serie iRacing inizierà la sua stagione due giorni dopo. Le gare online sono programmate ogni due settimane durante l'anno e trasmesse in diretta su NASCAR.com e Facebook. Trasformare i fan virtuali in fan non è una proposta facile. Ecco perché NASCAR sta lanciando una vasta rete oltre a iRacing, lavorando con artisti del calibro di Electronic Arts ( EA ) sul suo gioco mobile Real Racing ed esplorando nuove partnership con giochi basati su console. "La nostra strategia è quella in cui stiamo raggiungendo un certo numero di generi per raggiungere il più ampio pubblico possibile. Se possiamo collegarli allo sport, da lì a guardare la TV o diventare un pilota NASCAR un giorno, questo sarà molto prezioso per noi ", ha detto Davidson.
  15. La 12 Ore di Bathurst disputata lo scorso weekend ha saputo offrire un incredibile spettacolo, compresi alcuni incredibili incidenti che hanno messo ben in evidenza tutte le difficoltà del famoso e particolarissimo circuito australiano. Da non perdere quindi la versione virtuale della gara di durata dedicata alle GT3, che si disputa con iRacing e sarà possibile seguire interamente in diretta grazie ai link video disponibili anche qui sotto (divisi in tre parti). La partenza è fissata alle ore 14,30 italiane di oggi, buo divertimento. The Bathurst 12 Hour, staged on the Mount Panorama Circuit in Australia, is a 12 hour endurance race featuring GT3 cars. This event serves as the opening round to the Intercontinental GT Challenge Series in the real world.
  16. A sorpresa, il team di iRacing annuncia con il video di anteprima visibile qui sotto, il prossimo arrivo in autunno, come contenuto gratuito, della divertente Volkswagen Beetle GRC in versione rallycross. La vettura ci viene presentata dall'esperto pilota Scott Speed, 2 volte campione rally cross che, come si vede dal trailer, si è anche portato con sè per un primo test in vettura persino Dave Kaemmer, CEO di iRacing, alquanto spaventato! We're proud to announce that the Volkswagen Beetle GRC car will be included in iRacing's upcoming rallycross feature as free content - coming Fall 2017.
  17. Come riportato anche dal sito motoristico di the Drive, che ne ha ricevuto conferma, il ben noto pilota americano Scott Speed, ex Formula 1 e campione rallycross, nonchè testimonial del simulatore iRacing, come potete vedere dal trailer qui sotto, è stato sospeso proprio dal servizio e dalle gare del sim americano, per comportamenti folli ed incredibili ! La polemica proprio fra gli utenti di iRacing è esplosa nei giorni scorsi dopo che Speed si è trovato in una gara online contro il pilota virtuale Jake Hewlett, a bordo delle Porsche 911 sul circuito del Nurburgring. Hewlett stava trasmettendo la gara su Twitch ai suoi migliaia di follower quando lui e Speed si sono toccati nel secondo giro mentre erano in lotta per il comando. I due si sono toccati mentre correvano fianco a fianco e Speed ha finito per avere la peggio e girarsi nell'erba. Quello che poteva essere definito come un normale incidente di gara si trasforma in un incubo per Jake: Scott Speed passa infatti gran parte del resto della gara cercando di speronare l'auto di Hewlett, ad ogni possibilità. Le prove video (per fortuna...) lo mostrano ripetutamente e intenzionalmente cercare il crash su Hewlett, in un caso tagliando una curva ad alta velocità nel tentativo di distruggerlo! Appena i video di quanto successo (li trovate qui sotto) hanno iniziato a diffondersi, gli iscritti di iRacing hanno ovviamente iniziato a protestare con fermezza, anche perchè altri utenti hanno dichiarato di aver già segnalato in altre occasioni i comportamenti scorretti di Scott Speed, ma senza ottenere alcun risultato. Evidentemente perchè non avevano la prova video ! iRacing è rimasto a lungo silenzioso sull'argomento ed un portavoce si è limitato a dire che, mentre non commentano i singoli membri "indipendentemente da chi siano", tutti sono soggetti alle stesse regole e regolamenti. In un altro contesto invece Steward Nim Cross di iRacing ha definito le prove "accuse e supposizioni" e ha detto che le persone coinvolte dovevano presentare una protesta ufficiale attraverso i canali opportuni prima di intraprendere qualsiasi azione. Tuttavia, Speed ha confermato a The Drive che è stato sospeso da iRacing e che accetta le conseguenze del suo comportamento. Ha aggiunto: "Questa non è la vita reale, è un gioco. La penalità per la mia azione, se contestata, è una sospensione, che accetto e non mi sento personalmente come un uomo... che ha restituito il favore", ha scritto. "Ma quello sono io, non ho trattato iRacing con la giusta quantità di rispetto ed è sbagliato, per questo mi scuso sinceramente." La sospensione potrebbe spiegare perché Speed ha anche messo in vendita il suo intero simulatore per $ 7,500. Eppure, pur avendo a quanto sembra appeso i suoi guanti da guida virtuali, non ha fatto a meno di prendere in giro gli utenti dicendo che stava tornando a "fare una corsa". E' bene ricordare che Speed non è nuovo a comportamenti simili anche nella realtà: nel 2008, Speed ha avuto a che fare con Ricky Stenhouse Jr. quando entrambi erano in gara nel finale di stagione della NASCAR ARCA; come nel virtuale, in rappresaglia per una collisione precedente, Speed ha tamponato la vettura di Stenhouse, finendo fuori entrambi. E poi ci lamentiamo degli incidenti sui server pubblici...
  18. Il sito di RedBull Games ha pubblicato a questo link una interessante intervista fatta a Steve Myers, Executive VP e Producer in iRacing.com Motorsport Simulations. Oltre ad alcune interessanti curiosità, scopriamo anche alcune delle prossime novità in arrivo per il simulatore americano, come ad esempio un tracciato rallycross europeo e la licenza Subaru. Will we see more GRC cars and tracks in iRacing in future? Absolutely, in fact I just signed our first European Rallycross track, although we won't be able to collect the data to build it until the spring. Subaru will be joining us this year in our virtual Red Bull Global Rallycross series and that car is already in production. We also have a few rallycross configurations in the design process and we hope to have at least one new one in our March release. One of the great things about our business model is that we have four major releases a year so new content is pretty much coming out every three months. What's hard is balancing the release of content in the many forms of racing we now have at iRacing, which is another unique aspect of our product.
  19. Come sanno bene gli appassionati di simracing, iRacing è un simulatore di guida online, a sottoscrizione, nato nell'ormai lontano Agosto 2008. Sin dall'inizio il servizio è stato impostato non solo come intrattenimento videoludico, ma soprattutto come simulatore in grado di allenare i piloti del mondo reale. Il tutto però sempre basato su un servizio orientato esclusivamente al comparto online, con l'abbonamento comunque necessario anche solo per girare da soli ed allenarsi. Il punto della situazione, con un accenno ai programmi per il 2018, pubblicato come di consueto da Tony Gardner sul forum ufficiale, è in pratica una vera e propria rivoluzione per il simulatore americano: Gardner infatti, oltre a confermare il prossimo arrivo delle vetture prototipo LMP1 con la prossima build del software e l'attesissima transizione dinamica del ciclo giorno - notte entro il 2018 (presumibilmente verso fine anno), ammette lui stesso di shockare gli appassionati confermando l'implementazione dell'intelligenza artificiale (IA) in iRacing: Forse un modo per attirare un maggior numero di utenti? Un sistema ingegnoso per offrire servizi nuovi agli abbonati, come ad esempio un training avanzato? Oppure una vera e propria necessità finanziaria per cercare di "fare cassa" ? E' bene ricordare infatti che i numeri ci dicono che, in generale con tutti i software, la stragrande maggioranza degli utenti gaming (inclusi i simdrivers), non gioca online, ma si limita a guidare offline, apprezzando le varie modalità carriera presenti nei giochi ed una IA valida e combattiva. Basta notare la rivolta degli appassionati di Gran Turismo con l'uscita dell'ultimo Sport, quasi completamente votato all'online: la Polyphony, per risollevare le magre vendite del gioco, è stata costretta ad una virata in tutta fretta... Del resto gli stessi numeri sugli abbonamenti di iRacing, in particolare in Europa, parlano molto chiaro: gli abbonati ed ancora peggio gli utenti effettivi (cioè quelli che rinnovano l'abbonamento e giocano con costanza) non sono certo una moltitudine, assolutamente pochi se si pensa ai costi enormi di un servizio come iRacing, non solo a livello tecnico, ma anche per pagare le licenze necessarie ai campionati ufficiali ! Se iRacing fosse in Europa o peggio in Italia, probabilmente sarebbe già fallita... Gli abbonati che corrono sugli ovali sono circa 45mila, mentre quelli sulle piste stradali sono 49mila, bisogna però considerare che un pilota può anche risultare in entrambe le statistiche, se corre in ovale ed anche su strada. I piloti da sterrato sono invece circa 20mila. Facendo due conticini quindi, con approssimativi 100mila abbonati, nella migliore delle ipotesi (cioè tutti pagano il prezzo mensile pieno e cosi non è però), iRacing incassa meno di 1 milione di Euro al mese, con il quale deve tenere in piedi l'azienda, pagare le licenze e pagare tutte le spese tecniche per i propri servizi (servers ecc...). Se poi andiamo ad analizzare i numeri nella sola Italia, viene quasi da sorridere: 480 piloti sugli ovali, 684 su strada, circa 25 su sterrato. Considerando come unico abbonato il pilota che corre su ovale ed anche in pista, abbiamo un totale di meno di mille piloti ! Un giochino infimo per il cellulare vende 100 volte di più... Per avere dei riferimenti, considerate che per esempio, i vari Gran Turismo hanno incassato finora oltre tre miliardi di Euro, mentre un Assetto Corsa a Gennaio 2017 aveva venduto oltre 1,4 milioni di copie (incasso stimato almeno 49 milioni). E loro non hanno i costi mensili tecnici di iRacing. Ecco forse perchè gli americani hanno deciso di implementare la (finora) sbeffeggiata IA.... Voi cosa ne pensate?
  20. Con un comunicato ed il trailer che vedete qui sotto, il team di iRacing ha annunciato il prossimo arrivo nel simulatore americano delle "Chili Bowl", ovvero le divertenti macchinine da sterrato che hanno un grande successo in USA.

Happy Holidays from all of us at iRacing, and have fun out on the track! iRacing.com is proud to announce that Knoxville Raceway will be available to purchase on December 5th. CHANGE LOG: License Classes - iRacing now has four unique License Classes! - - Each of the four licenses are completely separate from each other, and you will have your own Class, iRating, and Safety Rating in each. - - There is one license for each type of racing available: Oval, Road, Dirt Oval, and Dirt Road. - - - Your initial Dirt Oval License Class was granted to you based on an algorithm that took into account both your 2017 Oval License Class, and your 2017 participation in Official Dirt Oval races. Heat Racing - Heat Racing, a new format of racing competition has been added to iRacing! - - Heat racing is a system of competition that divides racers into different groups, or Heats, based on their qualification performance. Each Heat has its own winners and losers, and the best racers from each Heat will go on to compete against each other in the final session, the Main Event. Before that, the other racers from each Heat will go on to Consolation Races, where they may have a chance to earn themselves a spot in the Main Event! - - For detailed information on Heat Racing, check out this document: https://d3bxz2vegbjddt.cloudfront.net/dev/pdfs/2017-iracing-heat-racing-doc.pdf - You are able to create and join your own Hosted Sessions using the Heat Racing format! - - This option is only available in the iRacing Beta Interface! - - - To setup your own Heat Race: - - - - Click on: "Go Racing", then, "Create a Race", then, in the "Set Race Options" section, for the "Event Type", select "Heat Racing". Then, select one of the different configurations in the dropdown and finally purchase your session and join! - - Session time and price are calculated using the maximum possible value for the number of entrants, which would yield the maximum number of Heat sessions being run. Thus, the time is an estimated total of the time limits for each of the predicted sessions plus a small buffer to account for session transitions and gridding times. - - The cost for purchasing a Hosted Heat Racing Session has a 25% discount in addition to any other bulk discounts you may already recieve. Race Results - The in-Sim Race Results page has been reorganized to handle Heat Racing events, which can have many more sessions than just Practice/Qualify/Warmup/Race. If necessary, you can now scroll the Results left/right to reveal the results for the particular session of interest. Since all cars in the event are listed, yet only a subset of them actually drive in some of the sessions, you can sort the results for a particular session, thus grouping the cars that participated together, and pushing the cars that were not involved in that session to the bottom. Asphalt Oval Racing - A physics overhaul has been performed on our asphalt oval cars! - - For some extensive and detailed information, check out this link: - - - http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3582329.page#10803442 Dirt Oval Racing - The default value for the starting track state for Dirt Ovals in a Race session has been lowered slightly for most cars, and has been lowered significantly for the Non-Winged Sprint Cars. This change will affect Official Sessions and any hosted sessions where the starting state is not explicitly specified. - The default value for the starting track state for Dirt Ovals in Test, Practice, and Unattached Qualify sessions has been increased to make these tracks more closely match typical starting race conditions. Overall, you should expect the track for a Dirt Oval Practice session to have nearly the same starting usage as a Race session for the entry-level Dirt Oval cars. - The variability in default starting track states for Dirt Ovals has been increased, meaning that when a starting usage value is not explicitly given, the distribution of generated usage percentages is wider. This will result in more variety in starting track state in Official Sessions and any hosted sessions where the starting state is not explicitly specified. - Dirt Oval Track surface properties have been adjusted to reduce traction. - For some extensive and detailed information on the changes within Dirt Oval Racing, check out this link: - - http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3582313.page#10803079 Red Bull Global Rallycross Series - Welcome to the world of Rallycross! - - Rallycross is a form of racing that combines asphalt and dirt track sections into a short circuit, that also includes a dirt jump. There are limited penalties, no pit stops, and cars designed specifically for this racing format. - - Rallycross cars and tracks have been added to the iRacing repertoire! - - - Ford Fiesta RS WRC - - - VW Beetle GRC - - - Daytona circa 2007 (Rallycross - Long) - - - Daytona circa 2007 (Rallycross - Short) - - - Iowa Speedway (Rallycross) - - - Lucas Oil Raceway (Rallycross) - - - Phoenix International Raceway - 2008 (Rallycross) - On the "Host A Race" page on the membersite, when a track with a Joker Lap (currently only Rallycross tracks) is selected, a new option for selecting the "Number of joker laps" is displayed. Additionally, Full Course Cautions and fast Tows are both completely disabled, and Standing Starts is mandatory. Simulation - Headlights can no longer be disabled on Road courses at night. - The in-car slowdown penalty display now rounds up to the nearest tenth, so that "0.0" is never displayed for time remaining. Dynamic Track - Improved the method for calculating simulated tire activity during track initialization. Rendering - A new water shader has been implemented at Daytona circa 2007. This shader replaces the formerly static water effect with one which is reactive to the wind and uses current lighting techniques. - - Please look forward to this water shader seeping into other tracks later this season! Audio - A new Ambient Volume slider can be found in the Options menu. This will control sounds like fireworks and jet fly-overs. - Fixed a bug that was causing backfires to emit at the wrong location when watching a replay. Backfires and shift sound emission should now also stick to the car, rather than Doppler shifting away when viewing from inside the cockpit. Spotter - A brand new Spotter Pack, Cole Carter, the official spotter for Scott Speed, is now available in iRacing! - - This Spotter Pack is ready to assist in all types of racing, including all calls needed for Rallycross racing! - - - You may select which Spotter Pack iRacing uses in your Audio Options menu. - The default Aussie Spotter is ready to assist with Rallycross calls. - - Other Spotter Packs (except Cole Carter), are currently not setup to perform Rallycross calls. Pit Crew - iRacing has now finished hiring and training a highly experienced and fully animated pit crew to service some cars and trucks! - - NASCAR Camping World Chevrolet Silverado - - NASCAR Camping World Toyota Tundra - - NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Chevrolet SS - - NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Ford Fusion - - NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Toyota Camry - - NASCAR Truck Series Chevrolet Silverado circa 2013 - - NASCAR XFINITY Chevrolet Camaro - - NASCAR XFINITY Ford Mustang - - NASCAR XFINITY Toyota Camry - - - This super-fast and hardworking team will jump into action whenever you're pitting with one of the above vehicles on a track where that vehicle should be racing competitively. - War wagons for many stock cars have been updated! - - The war wagons should now have more detail, and randomly opened toolbox doors. - - - NASCAR Camping World Chevrolet Silverado - - - NASCAR Camping World Toyota Tundra - - - NASCAR K&N Pro Chevrolet Impala - - - NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Chevrolet SS - - - NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Ford Fusion - - - NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Toyota Camry - - - NASCAR Nationwide Chevrolet Impala circa 2011 - - - NASCAR Sprint Cup Chevrolet Impala COT circa 2013 - - - NASCAR Truck Series Chevrolet Silverado circa 2013 - - - NASCAR XFINITY Chevrolet Camaro - - - NASCAR XFINITY Ford Mustang - - - NASCAR XFINITY Toyota Camry Opponent Cars - Opponent car spec data has been updated for ALL cars. - - The results of this change may be visible on timed penalties (such as cutting corners). An accurate car spec is required to determine the amount of time gained by cutting a corner and hence the appropriate penalty. - Fixed an issue with the way some cars looked due to an error in weight distribution. Paint Kit - Improved font handling when painting cars. In-Sim Race Radio - Added the ability for the Sim to ask, within a radio script, whether or not the current session is either a Qualify Session or a Race Session (qual_or_race), or if the current event is a Heat Racing event (heats). - - See the "readme.txt" file located in your My Documents/iRacing/scripts/radio/ directory for more information. - Changed the default "StartDriving.txt" and "StopDriving.txt" radio scripts to mute/unmute @ALLTEAMS if "qual_or_race" is true. - - This change is ONLY applied if you do not have customized versions of these two radio scripts. If you have customized versions of these scripts, and wish to incorporate these changes, see the "readme.txt" file located in your My Documents/iRacing/scripts/radio/ directory for more information on how to use them. (You would basically add "if qual_or_race mute @allteams" to the "StartDriving.txt" file, and "if qual_or_race unmute @allteams" to the "StopDriving.txt" file.) Controls - A gold hand brake overlay has been added over the normal red brake bars shown during calibration and when in or out of your car. - - This overlay will only be present for our brand new Rallycross cars: the Ford Fiesta RS WRC, and the VW Beetle GRC. Virtual Reality - Fixed an issue where mirrors and environment maps were rendering with the incorrect cameras when Oculus Rift or Vive was active. Telemetry - New live 360 Hz telemetry variables have been added: - - VelocityX_ST - - VelocityY_ST - - VelocityZ_ST - - LongAccel_ST - - LatAccel_ST - - VertAccel_ST - - RollRate_ST - - PitchRate_ST - - YawRate_ST - More telemetry variables are now optionally available to output at 360 Hz to the ".ibt" file. - The iRacing telemetry now includes a "NumJokerLaps:" property under "WeekendOptions:" that indicates the number of required Joker laps that must be taken in any race session. - The iRacing telemetry now includes a "JokerLapsComplete:" property for each "- Position:". - Fixed a bug in telemetry session string "CurDriverIncidentCount," output. - Fixed a telemetry bug that caused DRS lights to track the last car to join the session. iRacing Beta Interface - The iRacing Beta Interface, which includes the Time Attack race mode, has been updated. - The iRacing Downloader is now fully integrated and functional within the iRacing Beta Interface, and no longer needs to direct the user to the iRacing membersite via a web browser. - The "Recent Results" section of the iRacing Beta Interface is now fully functional! - - This section will display results of all kinds from the past 24 hours. - The "Sign Out" section that was in the bottom-left corner has returned to the top-right corner, and is now a dropdown menu. - The "My Content" section has been folded into a dropdown menu that appears when you click on your profile name box in the top left corner. - - - This section includes where you can view the Cars and Tracks you own, as well as your Racing Suit and Helmet. - - - Within the Cars and Suit & Helmet sections, you can also access the Paint Kit to customize each item. - You are able to create and join your own Hosted Sessions using the Heat Racing format! - - This option is only available in the iRacing Beta Interface! - - - To setup your own Heat Race: - - - - Click on: "Go Racing", then, "Create a Race", then, in the "Set Race Options" section, for the "Event Type", select "Heat Racing".

Dirt Midget - NEW CAR! - - The Dirt Midget has been added to the iRacing virtual garage! - - This vehicle is now available for purchase in the iRacing Store. - - Originating in the United States in the 1930s and now raced on a global scale, the Midget cars are an incredibly fun spectacle to witness. These cars appear very small but pack a huge power-to-weight ratio and typically run four-cylinder engines. The cars feature a handful of safety features including their own roll cages due to the dangerous nature of their power. The small vehicles weigh in around only 900 pounds but carry engines capable of 300 to 400 horsepower. Often used as a stepping stone to high profile divisions, Dirt Midget races can often feature drivers of high notoriety such as Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne, Kyle Larson, and others. Arguably the most famous Dirt Midget event, the Chili Bowl takes place in early January at the Expo Square Pavilion in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Probably not a feat you would expect your friendly neighborhood Ford Fiesta to achieve. But take that Fiesta and pack it with a 600-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter engine powering all four wheels and that is exactly the kind of acceleration you get. Rallycross cars are little beasts unlike any other vehicle, and the Ford Fiesta RS WRC is no exception. Driven by Steve Arpin in the Red Bull Global Rallycross Series, this vehicle transitions from dirt to asphalt and back to dirt seamlessly.

VW Beetle GRC - NEW CAR! - - The VW Beetle GRC has been added to the iRacing roster of vehicles! - - This vehicle is FREE for all iracing.com Members! - - A little buggy that packs a big punch, the Volkswagen Beetle GRC crosses asphalt and gravel effortlessly with its turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Championed by Red Bull Global Rallycross driver Scott Speed, his 560-horsepower machine has proven to be a formidable powerhouse, winning three championship titles in a row (2015, 2016, 2017). The all wheel drive Beetle can accelerate from 0 to 60mph in just two seconds, meaning you’ll be putting the transversally mounted, six-speed racing gear box to good use right off the starting grid. This Volkswagen Beetle GRC features a retro form that pays homage to the original Volkswagen Type 1, the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single platform ever made.

Each incident will subtract 5 points to your score. If you reach 20 incidents on a race, you will be suspended for a week. You can race as many times as you like during the week: Up to 2 Races - Counts the best result (points including incidents); More than 2 races - Average of all your races. NEVER DRIVE THE WRONG WAY!! ABUSIVE CONTACT BETWEEN VEHICLES IS FORBIDDEN! DO NOT CAUSE ACCIDENTS ON WARMUP LAPS! RESPECT YELLOW AND BLUE FLAGS! MAINTAIN AT LEAST 2 WHEELS ON THE TRACK! CHAT IS NOT ALLOWED!
  24. Il pilota professionista Scott Speed ci presenta la nuova modalità Red Bull Global Rallycross, che sarà disponibile in iRacing a partire dal 5 Dicembre. Grazie alla nuova partnership ufficiale con il campionato Red Bull Global Rallycross, potremo godere della riproduzione della versione virtuale del torneo nel simulatore americano. Scott Speed shows us how to conquer Red Bull Global Rallycross. Redbull GRC launches on iRacing Decemebr 5th.
  25. Il geniale Nick Thissen, appassionato pilota virtuale di iRacing, ha rilasciato per il simulatore americano un comodo ed utilissimo programmino: iRacing Setup Sync permette in modo semplice di scambiare e scaricare gli assetti vettura, suddividendoli per categoria e anche per ogni singolo tracciato. We all know that setups can become an important part of your official iRacing races. And let’s admit it, most of us don’t have a clue where to start when it comes to building or tweaking a car setup. So the majority out there is counting on the goodwill of those who do master the art of setup creation. But even then, it can become a tiresome quest trying to hunt for the right setup file. So now a creative iRacing member has created a very interesting tool to help us all find de preferred setup file for your car of choice. iRacing member Nick Thissen introduces the first official version of “iRacing Setup Sync (iRSS)” This is an application dedicated to iRacing setup sharing and downloading. iRacing Setup Sync (or iRSS for short) is a Windows application that attempts to automate most of the tedious work around storing and managing your setups. It operates on a large database of setups, which is synced to most of the popular Setup Shops on the forum and therefore always contains the latest setups, even those shared on the forums. It allows you to browse setups by car, track or team and automates downloading the setups into the correct folder, and it can even automatically download setups for the car / track you are driving right now! iRacing members can follow the development of Sync Setup or provide feedback to Nick at the iRacing forum thread. Download -> http://iracingsetups.nickthissen.nl/Client/iRacingSetupSync_installer.zip This version contains a normal installer which will install an iRacing Setup Sync Launcher application. The Launcher application will automatically update to the latest version and then launch iRacing Setup Sync. You can just use the Launcher application to start the application, if there is no update available it will just launch iRacing Setup Sync. Official iRacing Setup Sync website - http://iracingsetups.nickthissen.nl/ Important features: Automatically download recent setups for your current car / track, as soon as you start iRacing. Similar to Trading Paints – except for setups! Search setups by car, track or team and download the ones you don’t have yet. Compares your local setups with the online database setups to determine which setups you already own – there is no point in downloading duplicates! Subscribe to cars, tracks and teams and quickly search setups that match any of your subscribed items. Completely customizable directory and setup naming convention with macros like the setup author, car, track, season and many more. Operates on a vast database of over 1,000 setups which is continuously updated by setups added to the various Setup Shops around the forums, and by user uploads. (Soon) Upload the setups you used in a recent session (if you want to share them) with the click of a button. Setup database website & account The setups in the application come from an online database that can also be accessed via : http://iracingsetups.nickthissen.nl/ You will need to create an account on this website and use that to login to iRacing Setup Sync. Do not login with your iRacing credentials, you need to login with the iRacing Setups website credentials. I will make that more clear in the next version. Where do the setups come from and how up to date is the database? The setups come from the online database also available at http://iracingsetups.nickthissen.nl/. You will need an account to use iRacing Setup Sync, which you can create by registering at the website. You don’t need an account to download setups from the website however. The database also contains setups manually uploaded by many different users, but mostly consists of all the setups available in the Setup Shops in the iRacing forums. Since a few months ago, most of these setup shops are being generated with another application I wrote, which automatically syncs the setup shops with the online database. That means that (at least for the cars that have an active setup shop thread) the database will always immediately contain every setup shared on the forum! How does it work? iRacing Setup Sync takes a snapshot of the setups on your computer. When you search for setups, the setups in the online database are quickly compared to your local setups (this is done by hashing their contents – I cannot read your setups), and you will see which setups you are still missing. Automatically downloading setups when you are racing If enabled in the options, iRacing Setup Sync will monitor for iRacing activity. When you start iRacing while iRacing Setup Sync is active (either visible or minimized to the background as a system tray application) it will detect which car and track you are driving and automatically search (and download) matching setups from the current season. As soon as you are connected you can go to your Garage and find the most recent setups in your download folder, ready to go. The application only very briefly checks for iRacing activity every 5 seconds so that it has a negligible impact on your racing experience. You can turn it off by closing it from the system tray when you start racing to be absolutely sure, but it should not be necessary. In a future update I will add automatic support for this. Finding setups by Subscribed items Once you have subscribed to cars, tracks, teams or groups (see below), visit the Subscribed tab to quickly search for setups that match your subscriptions. Click the ‘Find subscribed setups’ button to start searching. For example: if you are subscribed to the Ford GT – this will find any setups (that you do not yet own) for the Ford GT. Subscribe to your favorite cars and tracks to quickly get all of the new setups available. Finding setups by car, track, team or group If you want to look for setups manually by car, track, team or group simply visit the corresponding tab on the left side of the application. Use the dropdown to select your car, track, team or group and the setup list will be refreshed with matching setups. Use the Season dropdown at the top-right to filter by season. Setups that appear gray have already been detected on your computer, you don’t need to download them again. You can also see their location if you want to find them. You can still check the checkbox for these setups and download them again if you wish. Downloading the found setups Once you found some setups via your subscribed items or by searching for cars, tracks, teams or groups, you can hit the ‘Download selected setups’ button to add the selected (checked) setups to your current download list. Visit the Downloads tab to view your download list, and click Start to start automatically downloading the setups in the list. Options, setup location and naming Downloaded setups will be placed in the correct directory for each car, possibly under a further sub-directory if specified in the Options, with a name that follows the naming convention you specified in the Options. You can choose your directory under the Download Options tab, relative to the directory of the car that the setups are for. The default is ‘SetupSync’, so setups for (for example) the BMW Z4 GT3 would be placed under ‘iRacing/setups/bmwz4gt3/SetupSync/…” The name of the setup can be specified in the Setup Naming tab. You can use many different ‘tags’ or macros like {car}, {track}, {madeby} that will be replaced with the relevant values for each setup. For example, I like to call my setups by the person who made them, then the season and then whether it’s a race or qualify setup (eg “NickThissen_14S2_Q”), and I want a separate directory for each track: so I use the format “{track}/{madeby}_{season}_{type}”. You can select your favorite format from the list, or specify a custom format. What are teams and groups?A Team is a private team consisting of members and administrators. You can upload setups for your private team on the http://iracingsetups.nickthissen.nl/ website, those setups will only be visible to your team members. Create and configure your teams on the website. A Group can be used to group setups together. The setups in a group are publically accessible (if you want to control who has access to them, use a team instead). You can add multiple contributors to a group who can add setups to that group. Group support might be removed in a later update because it is almost never used. Updates Version 2.1 - Added support for automatic updates. - Added donate button by popular request (see Options page). - Added support for grouping setups. - Fixed setup naming convention save bug. Troubleshooting If there is a crash when running the new launcher, try running it as an administrator. Running as admin should not be required to just run iRacing Setup Sync, but it may be required when it needs to update. Known issues- Window shadow remains for a few seconds when you close it (click it to make it disappear). - Subscribing to teams is broken. - Nick has a very cheap shared webserver which may not be able to cope with a large demand.
