Mastering the Line: In part A of Fundamentals of the Racing Line & Cornering we will break down a corner into its three basic parts: turn-in, apex and track-out. We will also show you what makes the optimal radius of a corner and why that matters.


How driver inputs affect your tires. Part B of Vehicle Dynamics talks about tire grip, load transfer and gives you some tips on where to practice what we have covered. Tires are your only connection to the racing surface so understanding how they work and their limitations is critical if you are to get the most out of your car.


Before we move forward to race series, let’s go over license classes. Your license class acts as sort of a skill ranking system - it determines which series you are qualified to participate in. Everyone starts off with a rookie license. From there, you can work your way to class C, B, A, and if you can make the cut, the Pro license level. Each license level allows you to participate in more race series - we offer over 40 in total. You can view your current license at the top of the page. Click it to have it switch between your Road and Oval licenses.Take note of the number next to your helmet. This is your safety rating, which starts at 2.5. Now, your safety rating is indicative on how clean and consistent your racing is - it fluctuates based on the amount of incidents that occur in official sessions. For example, if you go off track, spin out, or make contact with other drivers, your safety rating will decrease. The cleaner your laps are, the more your safety rating will steadily increase. A high safety rating will help you get promoted into the next license class. Getting promoted into the next license level allows you to participate in more race series. Check out your promotion status by going to your Profile page. If you scroll to the bottom, you’ll find instructions on how to get yourself promoted to the next license level. As a rookie, you’ll need to participate in 2 races or 4 time trials, and have a safety rating of over 3.0 in order to be promoted to Class D. From there, you can work your way to class C, B, A, and if you can make the cut, the Pro license level. Once you meet the promotion requirements, you be automatically promoted at the end of the current race season.

iRacer Glenn McGee made an impressive debut last weekend in the 2016 Battery Tender Global MX-5 Cup presented by BF Goodrich Tires at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca Raceway. McGee, who was awarded a $100,000 scholarship to race in the series as the winner of the 2015 Mazda Road to 24 Shootout, qualified ninth fastest out of 40 entries and came home ninth on Friday in the first of two races on the weekend. Saturday’s race saw McGee finish P27 after an early incident put him a lap down. McGee’s performance was all the more noteworthy given that, although he has logged thousands of racing miles on iRacing’s online motorsports simulation service, the races at Laguna Seca were his first as a professional race driver.

NOTE: iRacing does not currently support Mac operating systems. Visit this link for more information: First and foremost, let’s get you signed in. Once you become a member of iRacing.com, you’ll receive full access to our member’s site, which is completely different than what the general public sees. This is your iRacing HQ: here, you’ll join sessions, select and purchase different tracks and cars, enroll in race series, view and edit your driver profile, and so much more - this is where you’ll spend most of your time with iRacing. Access this site by clicking “Sign In” on the top of our homepage, or you can go directly to members.iracing.com. One of the coolest things about iRacing - which sets it apart from other sims out there, is that the sim software works hand-in-hand with our website. This way, all of the race information you will ever need - whether it’s race results, leaderboards, series schedules, news, is all updated instantly and can be found here on the member site. We’ll get you situated with more of that soon, but first we have to install the software. When you first log into iRacing, you’re met with the Quick Start Guide. This guide covers what you need to know to get started, much like this video. Take the short time to read through it. When you are ready, click the Download button. Afterwards, simply execute the installer. When iRacing is first installed on your computer it will bring you up-to-date - however, iRacing issues minor updates to the service all the time. And every three months or so, we issue a major update usually with brand new cars and tracks for you to enjoy. You’ll notice at the top left of your screen a red notification if iRacing needs updating, a yellow notification if optional updates are available, and a green notification if the service is completely up to date. We recommend keeping the service completely up to date by clicking on this notification. Once the update prompt appears, simply click on Download. Once your game is up-to-date, you are ready to start a test session. A test session simply consists of driving solo in the sim with a car and track of your choosing. We definitely recommend starting up a test session rather than a full on race in order to get used to the sim. Here, you can practice as much as you want with any car and track combo you have in mind. It’ll also allow you to comfortably configure your wheel and pedal set, which, if you don’t have already is something we strongly urge you to consider. We aim to give you an authentic racing experience, and using a racing wheel really helps deliver that. Check out this link for some of our recommendations. Loading a test session is easy - simply click on “Test” here, and select your car and track here. When you’re ready, hit “Test Car on Track”. This will load up the sim for the first time. Click Auto Configure and iRacing will give you the best optimal graphics settings possible for your system. The last step we have to do here is to calibrate your wheel and pedal set. Simply click “Configure Controls” and carefully follow the directions that come up. Once that’s done, you can click the green ‘Test” button to drive your car. You’re now able to practice driving as long as you want. Get a feel for the nuances of the car. Each car in iRacing handles differently, and is ridiculously similar to the real thing, so practicing takes time. Back on the iRacing member site, check out our driving school section. We have a range of clear and concise videos meant to give educated driving tips for those new to the world of sim racing. You’ll learn things like vehicle dynamics, cornering, brake techniques, and how to race with others. We recommend checking these out before driving with others, and definitely before jumping into your first official race.

iRacing.com announced today that is joining forces with the United States Auto Club (USAC) as the famed sanctioning body's premier online motorsports simulation partner. The agreement will see iRacing develop online racing series featuring digital versions of the cars that compete in the popular AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Championship.
