  • Cam Stark
    contributing writer

    I began taking sim racing seriously about a year ago, but have loved motorsports from a young age. I began following Formula One first, then realized there are a huge variety of motorsports to watch. iRacing has opened my eyes even more to the diversity and volume of “real world” motorsports, let alone on the sim itself. With the huge varieties of series to choose from, you're spoiled for choice!

    Ever since I began iRacing, I wanted to improve on my ability, be it road or oval. Having not really heard about oval racing prior to November last year (blame the UK press), my mentality towards it has totally changed from what it would have initially been - it's awesome! I recently began road racing again - in the Star Mazda - and have been having a blast ever since. On top of racing the series I have the privilege of writing the articles for iRacing News.

    In all honesty I have surprised myself on iRacing. From being a fairly casual gamer/racer, it's been a world of difference, but it has far exceeded my expectations. I had a very brief stint driving in rFactor leagues, but I found my place of sim racing on this service, and I can't see myself stopping anytime soon.

A Hard Egg to Crack

by Brenton O'Brien on September 14th, 2015


And so it was for the finale of Season three 2015 in the official iRacing V8 Supercar Series.  Winning eight of the twelve rounds, SDC Motorsports’ Ethan Grigg-Gault is a well-deserved, worthy champion, going from strength to strength in what was an incredibly strong season for the V8 Championship. With a win, starting at Round One at Zolder, through to the final round at the ultimate challenging Mount Panorama track, Grigg-Gault showed his class throughout the season.  Wins in Round Two at Oulton Park, and Round 11 at Watkins Glen, Ian Ford claimed another second place overall, putting up a strong challenge for the top position.  The top two cars really have been the strongest in this series, although impressive consistent runs by Benjamin Smith and Beau Cattell kept the [...]

V8s Return to The Glen

by Brenton O'Brien on September 8th, 2015

Ford (4) passing series champion elect Grigg-Gault (1) and Cattell (5) in one move whilst Rivera (6) looks back and Cubis (2) looks on.

After a long period away from the magnificent Watkins Glen circuit, Round 11 of the iRacing V8 Supercar Series made a welcome return to what is one of the sim racers’ favourite tracks on the calendar.  Ethan Grigg-Gault, so dominant so far this season after a strong performance earlier during the week was deservedly confirmed as the Series 3/2015 Champion after a season that showed that speed and consistency always pays off. Qualifying The track conditions that greeted the drivers ensured that the lap times would be quick with the track temp at 39 degrees.  For the first time in his V8 career Evolution Racing Australia’s Marcello Rivera captured the coveted pole position with a lap time of1:45.873.  Series elect Champion Ethan Grigg-Gault continued his recent improvement in qualifying with [...]

Doing it the Hard Way at Monza

by Brenton O'Brien on August 17th, 2015

Series leaders Grigg-Gault and Ford getting a little too close for comfort on lap 7 with Rivera and Cubis waiting to pounce.

In all police TV shows they will tell you, “there’s an easy way, or there’s the hard way.”  Round 8 for the iRacing v8 Supercar Series saw Ethan Grigg-Gault do it the hard way to earn his fifth win of the season. Qualifying A full field of 25 cars sat in their pit bays waiting for qualifying to begin, in what would be a pivotal race of the season.  The track’s long. fast layout ensured that competitors who would be able to make the most of any slipstream from a car in front would benefit greatly over the course of a lap.  After what seemed like a short twelve minutes the field was tight at the top.  The pole position again went to the one lap shootout specialist Ian Ford [...]

Grigg-Gault Brings the Heat in the USA

by Brenton O'Brien on July 30th, 2015

Grigg-Gault saves what could have been a race-ending incident as Cubis, Smith and Rivera look on.

The heat was on for series leader Ethan Grigg-Gault and the rest of the competitors in the latest round of the iRacing V8Supercar Series held at Sebring International Raceway in sultry central Florida. Qualifying Hot and humid weather made conditions very uncomfortable for the 24 sim racers who lined up for the main SOF qualifying at Sebring.  The 5.9 km (3.7 mile) layout of concrete and asphalt presented challenges to the strong field throughout the 12 minute session.  With the extended lap times, drivers had limited opportunities to get that one ‘hot lap’ in to be sure that the time counted was indicative of their performance. Ian Ford, second in the championship and racing for Evolution Racing Australia in the Holden Commodore, again showed he’s the one lap master of [...]

V8s Endure on The Island

by Brenton O'Brien on July 17th, 2015

Change in leader as Grigg-Gault snags first place from Ford on Lap 33.

“That was the toughest race I have ever done” stated Ethan Grigg-Gault, the winner of Round 4 of the iRacing V8 Supercar Series at the conclusion of what was an epic 46 laps of the Phillip Island Circuit in Victoria, Australia. Qualifying Inviting weather welcomed the 24 starters to the wonderful Phillip Island Circuit, a favourite amongst many of the V8 Supercar drivers who were participating. A tight field produced our third different winner of the coveted pole position with series leader Ethan Grigg-Gault showing he not only has strong race pace but a bit of sting to his single lap qualifying. With the 12 minutes on the clock seemingly disappearing quicker than ever Grigg-Gault posted his time of 1:29.188 while Beau Cattell followed-up his great third place finish the [...]

V8 Spa Treatment

by Brenton O'Brien on July 10th, 2015

The race

As Meatloaf once sang “two out of three ain’t bad.”  And so it was with Ethan Grigg-Gault as Round 3 of the official iRacing V8 Supercar Series returned to Belgium and the highly-anticipated challenges Circuit de Spa–Francorchamps. Qualifying Clear skies welcomed the drivers to qualifying and, with just the twelve minutes on the clock and a lengthy outlap and hot lap needing to be completed to post a time, the sim racers quickly got down to business making their qualifying runs for the battle for the coveted pole position. As was the case in the previous round at Oulton Park, Ian Ford in the Evolution Racing Australia Holden Commodore sealed the deal and took pole position quite comfortably from series leader Ethan Grigg-Gault in the SDC Motorsport Falcon. From previous [...]

Ford and Holden Win!

by Brenton O’Brien on July 2nd, 2015

Welcome return to previous series champion Beau Cubis, in SDC colours with the chasing pack.

Ford and Holden win??..  How can this be so?? Ian Ford driving the Evolution Racing Australia HoldenCommodore scored his first win of the new season for Round 2 od the V* Supercar Series, at Oulton Park International Circuit. Qualifying Under cloudy skies with a track temperature that was condusive to fast lap times, qualifying was dominated by Ford in the Demidov Innovations Holden, leading last week’s winner and championship leader Ethan Grigg- Gault in the SDC Motorsports car by three tenths of a second. Twenty-four cars greeted the start of qualifying which ran seemingly without interruption.  The field was spread over the first five positions; however, things certainly tightened-up from positions six through to 20th with just eight tenths covering the field. Last week’s runner up, Vail Riches in [...]

Grigg-Gault Wins Sebring Thriller

by Paul Slavonik on May 22nd, 2015


Sebring International Raceway is one of the oldest and most historic race tracks still in existence in the United States. A former training base during World War II for the U.S. Army Air Corp, Sebring has been continuously operating since 1950 and is home to the world famous 12 Hours of Sebring. Although the 65-year old track plays host to several categories of motorsports including the FIA World Endurance Championship, International Le Mans Cup and, more recently, the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, Sebring’s virtual counterpart was home to the V8 Supercars Americas Series for Week 9 of the second season of 2015. The Starting Grid As the pre-race qualifying session got underway, 4 Motorsport driver and former V8 Supercars champion, Mitchell McLeod, put in a fast lap which [...]

Emerson Delivers at Road America

by Paul Slavonik on January 7th, 2015


With the first season of 2015 now well under way, the level of competition is heating up in the V8 Supercars Series. Road America was the battleground for Week 3 and for 30-laps, drivers from all over the world competed against both man and mechanical beast in the debut season of the official Ford vs. Holden battle. As the cars took to the starting grid, it was veteran sim-racer, John Emerson of Team TTL, who took pole-position with a staggering time of 2:07.409 while driving the Commodore. Starting alongside Emerson in second was Ian Ford of Evolution Racing Australia. The second row of the grid belonged to SDC Motorsports driver, Martin Carroll and Team TTL driver, Vail Riches, with Michael Fulcher of SDC rounding out the top-five. Green flag! [...]

Road Warriors R-E-S-P-E-C-T The Mountain

by Andrew Pinkerton on October 28th, 2014

The combination of Mt Panorama, the Ford Falcon V8 Supercar and the Road Warriors Series demanded respect.

After a weekend off, iRacing’s Road Warriors were back at it Down Under.  The vehicle of choice was the Ford Falcon V8 Supercar, making a last hurrah before it gives way to the Holden VF Commodore. The main theme for the 100 minute sim race around the Mount Panorama circuit was respect. The car, competitors and — most importantly the track – command respect.  With over 600 horsepower and a top speed nearing 200, the Ford Falcon is a handful.  And a cast of Falcons 40 strong thundering around any track demands a level head to avoid disaster. Finally The Mountain must be respected; forget that for just a split second and it will end in disaster. Once described by a NASCAR great as a “geological oddity,” Mt Panorama’s severe [...]

Road Warriors Get “Rad” at Oulton Park

by Andrew Pinkerton on October 2nd, 2014

The combination of the Radical and Oulton Park proved a formidable one.  Here Moreno leads a howling pack of SR8s.

Oulton Park hosted the fifteenth round of the 2014 iRacing Road Warrior Series. The Road Warriors’ weapon du jour was the Radical SR8, an extremely nimble and very fast car. Weighing-in well under 2,000 pounds and with nearly 380 horsepower on tap, this beast demands a few hairs on a sim racer’s chest – and preferably the soles of their feet — in order to extract its peak performance. The Radical will bite you when you least expect it, and this past weekend of sim racing was no exception: Only nine cars finished on the lead lap at the checkered flag across all of the races . . . combined. The Saturday 1:00 GMT kicked the weekend off with 18 starters. Rob Kodey had the pole, but ran into problems [...]

Hamstead Takes-Up the Title Fight

by Clayton Brooks on March 6th, 2014

V8 Montreal 2014 S 1 b Last Lap Hamstead makes his move

The official V8 Supercar Series headed to Montréal, this week for Round Five of 2014 S1. The race didn’t involve any pit stops so it would be a sprint from start to finish. All the drivers had to do was negotiate the tough and unforgiving Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve for 20 laps, or 87 kms. Once again Madison Down topped the qualifying time sheets, taking his fifth consecutive pole position with TTL sim-racer Richard Hamstead gridding alongside in P2. Row Two was occupied by George Maris and Tobias Czerny, with Beau Cattell starting fifth ahead of Leigh Ellis. ANZ Motorsports sim-racer Jarrad Filsell gridded up seventh with Mitchell McLeod eighth, while the fifth row had Marlon McMullen on the inside ahead of TTR steerer Shaun Kelly. As the online race got [...]

Marlon J. McMullen Claims V8 Supercars Americas Championship

by Paul Slavonik on January 27th, 2014

racing games

With the year coming to an exciting close, the V8 Supercars  Americas league saw Marlon J. McMullen claim the 2013 Season 4 V8 Supercars Americas Championship with a 169 point margin. Concluding the season at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, there were two celebrations going on as victory at the final race was claimed by Chad Chastain with McMullen and Beau Cattell finishing on the podium respectively. Chastain, who only appeared for six out of the 12 weeks in the season and still managed to finish the season in the top five, also claimed pole position and set the fastest lap time of 1:36.821. It was a close championship battle all the way to the end. Week 11 at Virginia International Raceway was the deciding factor for Kurt Stenburg who finished the [...]

Emerson is King of the Mountain

by Dylan Sharman on December 13th, 2013

V8 Bathurst 1

Round six of the V8 Supercar Series came back to Australia to visit a 6.213km circuit which is famously known as Mount Panorama (Bathurst).  The question was left open to see who would be King of the Mountain for the very first time in the series history! Qualifying went the way of TTL with another front row lock-out with Richard Hamstead topping the time sheets at 2:05.213 and John Emerson joining him on the front row with a 2:05.323.  Josh Muggleton and Rens Broekman would start from the second row while Michael Fabian and Dean O’Brien claimed the third row ahead of Madison Down and Shaun Kelly with Beau Cattell and Wayne C Bourke rounding out the top 10 starters. Hamstead jumped to the early lead while Muggleton and [...]

Muggleton Makes a Perfect Start

by Dylan Sharman on November 22nd, 2013

Muggleton completed his season-opening hat trick at Road Atlanta.

The V8 Supercar Series headed back to the USA for Round 3 of 2013 Season 4, Road Atlanta would host the first endurance event of the season in the form of a 45 lap online race. Josh Muggleton led the qualifying for the second straight week with Richard Hamstead joining him on the front row. Rens Broekman and Mitchell McLeod both had strong qualifying performances which put them up the front of the grid but for Broekman his stay at the front wouldn’t last long.  As the lights went out the Dutchman went nowhere as he had neglected to put his Ford Falcon in gear and so got collected by Matthew Hill. Nor was the carnage limited to the grid.  The Big One unfolded in Turn 1 when Tony [...]

Muggleton’s Title Defence Off to a Strong Start

by Dylan Sharman on November 8th, 2013

Emerson and Down trip over the lapped car of Hen.

Season 4 of the 2013 V8 Supercar Series kicked-off on Monday night at Okayama in Japan. A record Strength of Field of 4648 saw a great turn-out of over 126 people competing in the main online race. Josh Muggleton started his title defence in the best way possible, edging-out team mate Madison Down and Rens Broekman to take home the season opener and continue on his good form which took him to the 2013 S3 title. For the majority of the race, however, it was John Emerson in the TTL Good Game Falcon leading the way with the two Falcons following closely behind closely. But things went pair shaped for Emerson on Lap 22 of 30.  A lapped car had a moment when re-joining the track and drove [...]

V8 Championship Heats-Up in The States

by Dylan Sharman on October 15th, 2013

Down was in top form in the States, taking wins at Road Atlanta and The Glen.

Rounds Nine and 10 of the V8 Supercar Championship went to two of the classic American tracks, Road Atlanta and Watkins Glen.  With the championship heating up between the two team mates the battle for third is also well and truly alive. Round Nine at Road Atlanta saw Madison Down dominate from start to finish, never really being challenged at all cruising to an 8.5 second win. Josh Muggleton came home in second place just ahead of Richard Hamstead who threw everything at Muggleton in the final laps but couldn’t get the job done and settled for third place. Shaun Kelly and Michael Fabian rounded-out the top five finishers as they both try and hunt down Leigh Day who is currently third in the overall points. Day had a [...]

Muggleton Survives Canadian Chaos

by Dylan Sharman on September 23rd, 2013

Hamstead and Ruggier come together.

Round Seven of the V8 Supercar Series headed to a brand new track to iRacing for this season: Circuit Gilles Villeneuve (also known as Montreal).  With the drivers now into the second half of the season, the championship is well and truly alive. Qualifying was led by Josh Muggleton, following on his excellent form at Phillip Island to take back-to-back pole positions, with Justin Ruggier once again joining him on the front row. Richard Hamstead and Madison Down would start from the second row with the Leighs  — as in Leigh Day (P5) and Leigh Ellis (P6) — locking-out the third row. Tobias Czerny led the internationals in seventh with James McKnight joining him on Row Four as Shaun Kelly and Wayne C Bourke rounded out the top 10. [...]

Ruggier Too Good Down Under

by Dylan Sharman on September 16th, 2013

Out in the cold after this coming-together with Autridge at Siberia, Hill rebounded to finish in the top ten.

Round 6 of the V8 Supercar Series headed home to Phillip Island for an endurance event which would see the sim-racers tackle 40 laps (178km) of “The Island.” Qualifying was extremely close with Josh Muggleton taking pole with a 1:31.222 with Justin Ruggier in second.  Madison Down and Richard Hamstead started from the second row with Shaun Kelly in fifth just .057s away from pole position. Leigh Day rounded-out the third row with Vail Riches and Beau Cubis on the fourth row ahead of the TT-R tandem of Leigh Ellis and Tony Autridge. When the green lights flashed Muggleton led the field into Turn One for the first time with Ruggier just ahead of Down and Hamstead. As everyone sorted themselves out the first lap, Hill and Autridge came [...]

Ruggier Reaches The Summit!

by Dylan Sharman on September 4th, 2013

Perfect strategy and a flawless drive put Ruggier in the winner's circle.

Round Four of the V8 Supercar Series headed to West Virginia and Summit Point Raceway. It has been a year plus since the series ran here last and with some different strategies on offer this time around competitors and fans alike could look forward to a different mix this time around the two mile road course.
