Not all iRacers belong to Generation X or Y. There’s plenty of baby-boomer sim racers out there, and no small number are probably identify more with Geritol than Generation X, Y or Z. I wouldn’t be so presumptuous as to guess Scott Green’s generational affiliation, but the fact the Albuquerquean lists his birth date as “quite some time ago” leads me to believe his contemporaries in a famous local clan are familiarly known as Big Al and Uncle Bobby, rather than Little Al and Bobby, Jr. And the fact that his favorite cars on the iRacing service are the Silver Crown sprint car and Mustang FR500S also suggests Green is “old school.” Did I mention the person he most admires is a fellow named Mario Andretti? While he may be [...]

The second season of mixed class online racing in the iRacing Prototype Challenge (iPC) began with a journey to Ontario for the start of Season Three. Like most series in iRacing, the iPC had its schedule restructured for this upcoming season, with Mosport International Raceway occupying the Week One slot of the twelve week season. The ten turn track checks in at just a hair under 2.5 miles, with the Riley MkXX Prototype owning roughly a 1.5 second advantage over the Radical SR8 due to its speed advantage on the long, uphill “Mario Andretti” straightaway. On the Prototype side, Marcus Saari edged ahead of the pack with his three wins on the week in three starts. The Scandinavian was dominant in all of his starts, leading wire-to-wire and winning by [...]
