  • 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.

Soon after, Paul stumbled upon iRacing.com and has been hooked on racing ever since.
    A United States Army Veteran, Certified Audio Engineer and aspiring author, Paul spends his time hanging out with his wife and working on his first book.

The next time an email or PM arrives from iRacingNews asking you to answer some questions for a story . . . you might want to keep Dan Garrison in mind.   Away back in August of 2012, Dan took time to supply some “A’s” to our “Q’s” for an iRacer Profile.  Fast forward to June, 2014 and iRacing.com was happy to welcome our newest employee, also known as senior programmer Dan Garrison. This is not to suggest Dan got his job at iRacing strictly because of his iRacer Profile. There were, after all, the little matters of a BS in computer science followed by a lengthy stint with a company called IBM.  But the iRacer Profile didn’t hurt his chances of making a cross-country move from Arizona to Bedford, MA [...]

Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock . . . Okay, feel better?  So now that we’ve got that over with, I’m going to write something that anyone who has read even one of my blogs knows I never do:  Make a promise.  If I was allowed back in Vegas again and a casino would take my bet, I would put money down that driver swaps will be in the Season 4 build.  In fact, [...]

When NASCAR joined the iRacing family in 2009, another person did too. His name is Danny Huegel. A member since May of 2009, Huegel has worked his way up, in the five years he has been on iRacing, to become a fast and respected iRacer. In 347 oval starts, the 19 year old has earned 32 career victories, his most recent win coming at Kansas Speedway in the NASCAR iRacing.com Series Fixed. Although Danny has only started 18 total races on road courses, he is no stranger to the checkered flag there either.  His one career victory on a road course came in one of iRacing’s unique World Tour series events: the Roar Before the 2.4. His victory came in the 2013 running of the event in the Mazda MX-5 [...]

The Fall and Rise of Grand Prix Legends

The Lotus 49 ranks among history's most iconic Formula One cars.

This is my story of the fall and rise of iRacing.com’s Grand Prix Legends series. There were times I was not involved, and thus I don’t have all the details, but I hope my perspective offers some insight into how the series has come back from the brink, and offers some reason to come and join the party. After a prolonged gestation period, 2013 Season 1 saw iRacing announce (http://www.iracing.com/iracingnews/iracing-news/new-enhanced-tracks-and-features-headline-season-3-build) that the Lotus 49 was available and would star in the new Grand Prix Legends series in Season 2. At http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3203574.page the Lotus 79 community pondered whether a popular Lotus 49 might harm their series as after all, there are only so many sim-racers to go around who will have an interest in historical cars. It was hoped the Lotus [...]

Last night on the NASCAR iRacing.com Series World Championship broadcast it was revealed that a Super Late Model would be coming to iRacing. Super Late Models are the staple of paved short tracks across America with around 70% of all NASCAR-sanctioned tracks running a SLM series as their premier series. At the moment no one knows if we will see a simple adaptation of the current Late Model, or if we will see an entirely new model that is more or less similar to the dirt late model body, with a longer body, a Plexiglas spoiler, and a flatter hood and rear deck-lid. What we have heard rumours about however is that the iRacing team has arranged a meeting to possibly scan the car into the simulation. But, we have [...]
