    Ray Kingsbury is a motorsport enthusiast and full-time university student, born and raised in Connecticut. He started his own racing career in BMX, riding bicycles competitively on the state level. In eight years he claimed the state championship and was ranked nationally before moving away from the sport. This void of activities led him to rediscover sim-racing in the form of NASCAR Heat. After a championship in the game's most competitive league Kingsbury started focusing full-time on his involvement in Live for Speed. There he founded Last Lap Motorsports which today has more than 20 members worldwide.

    When a few Last Lap Motorsports members decided to give iRacing.com a chance to feed their desire for more oval racing, Ray teamed with his brother Matt, Nathan Lamothe and newcomer Jimmie Jones to enter the ETV! Live Team Series and claimed the title after a dominating performance at Watkins Glen. To this day the team continues in both Live for Speed and iRacing.com and Ray still takes much delight in his own sim-racing career. A reporter for his high school newspaper before moving to university, Kingsbury keeps-up his writing activities by contributing to iRacing News.

    Born and raised in the greater St. Louis, Missouri area, Scott Kelly has had a love for motorsports ever since his father did the right thing by introducing auto racing into his life. No longer able to quench his need for speed by spectating NASCAR races on TV and watching dirt track stars slide around local tracks, Kelly eventually picked-up sim racing in his teens, wheeling cars found in Ratbag Games' "Dirt Track Racing" and "World of Outlaws: Sprint Cars" while also becoming introduced into multiple Papyrus sim-racing series. Joining the iRacing ranks in late 2011, Kelly set his sights on the short track racing he was familiar with, focusing on the sprint car, while also driving the Legends and street stock in multiple iRacing.com leagues.

    Kelly brings not just his enthusiasm for racing to the highest-rated motorsports simulation, but also his B.A. degree in English; he covers the action seen in the iRacing.com Sprint Car Series, while also placing the spotlight on various leagues within the service. Enjoying his start to a career in motorsports journalism, Kelly also doesn't mind visiting victory lane from time-to-time.

    I was born in Adelaide and we moved-out for Angle Vale for a few years until I was about 7 years old, when we moved to the Barossa Valley where I live now. I'm 19 years old and currently traveling back and forth weekly as I'm studying for a Diploma of Furniture Design and Technology.

    I've always had a love for racing as my close family did some racing and we were always out at the local dirt track. I joined iRacing back in 2010 and slowly but surely got the hang of it as this is my first experience with sim racing and am loving it each time I race. I've won two SK Modified titles (almost had three in a row but finished P2 in 2011 S4), an iRacingNews Challenge championship (2012 S1 Mazda) and was also an AustralAsian Intel GT Series Finalist.

    My fascination for motorsports began when I was nine. The first NASCAR race I watched on TV was the 2009 Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Infineon Raceway, won by Kasey Kahne. My favorite NASCAR drivers are Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr, and Jimmie Johnson. I have watched all the races in the NASCAR Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series since 2010. I currently have three wins on iRacing, two of them in the Nationwide car at Daytona and one in the Street stocks at Charlotte. My favorite car and type of track on iRacing is the Nationwide Series (B Class) car and superspeedways.

The Fall and Rise of Grand Prix Legends

by Ryan Williams on March 27th, 2014

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 [...]

Tony Gardner Talks About “Cheating” with iRacing News editor David Phillips In the coming weeks, iRacingNews will feature a series of conversations with key members of the iRacing team discussing topics of interest to the iRacing and sim-racing community.  To get the ball rolling, I sat down with iRacing president Tony Gardner and picked his brain about iRacing’s ongoing efforts to insure the integrity of the world’s foremost online racing service.  Which is a nice way of saying, we talked about cheating.   Much as we all wish it were otherwise, cheating is an element of iRacing just as it is in any sport, whether it’s athletes doping, race teams making “deals,” basketball players shaving points or Rosie Ruiz taking the subway to the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

It’s not every day the stars of NASCAR, IndyCar, ALMS, GRAND-AM, NHRA, V8 Supercars and other major professional series go head-to-head on the same race track.  But thanks to iRacing.com (www.iracing.com) – the world’s leading online motorsports game — some of the world’s top racers will go head-to-head, door-to-door and wheel-to-wheel from the comfort of their homes in the third annual iRacing.com Pro Race of Champions on Thursday, December 12. Past line-ups have included NASCAR’s Carl Edwards, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano, GRAND-AM champions Alex Gurney and Jordan Taylor, ALMS champion Joey Hand, IZOD IndyCar Series favorite Justin Wilson and NHRA Funny Car star Ron Capps, not to mention V8 Supercar Series ace Shane van Gisbergen, the defending iPRoC champion. “The iRacing Pro Race of Champions has become one of [...]

Radical Solution to a Radical Problem

Will the sun shine on the Radical SR8 in Season 3?

Something needed to be done . . . even the hardcore were getting disillusioned.  The numbers were dropping, but there was still a glimmer of enthusiasm there.  A post from Tony Gardener and suddenly the world looked a brighter place. Two weeks later and the Radical series is set to take on a new look in Season 3 with the aim of attracting new drivers to what is generally accepted as one of the most exciting cars to drive on the iRacing service. To get to the root of the initial problem, one probably needs to look at two more or less simultanious events. The first was the arrival of the NTM on the Radical. In its final season on the OTM this exciting little sportscar had regularly pushed the [...]

iRacing & Partners Donate to Pinellas County Science Center- – Students Win!

iRacing star and FF2000 driver Wyatt Gooden was on hand to offer tips to students at the Pinellas County Science Center's sim-racing lab.

Normally there would only have been one winner in the 2013 Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg: James Hinchcliffe, the first IndyCar driver to complete 110 laps of the 1.8 mile street circuit on Sunday.  But thanks to the Science Center of Pinellas County and iRacing, this year’s racing produced scores of winners . . . and most of them aren’t even old enough to qualify a driver’s license. That’s because the Science Center has teamed with iRacing and other motorsports simulation leaders including Intel, Playseat and Logitech to develop programs designed to inspire students from Grades 6 – 8 in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).   Earlier this year, iRacing donated video monitors and software to the Science Center, and helped coordinate the involvement of the programs’ other technical [...]

Exciting New Format, Club DE-AT-CH Bid for 4th Title Highlight International Tournament They’ve won it three times, but will they triumph in this year’s battle for the World Cup of iRacing?  “They” are the iRacers of Club DE-AT-CH (Germany-Austria-Switzerland) who will be challenged by iRacing’s other 36 international clubs in the 2012 World Cup starting on July 10.  The competition kicks-off with four days of practice before the first of three World Cup Tournament qualifying rounds on the 14th of July.

Ever think you would go from sim-racing to real racing? What about starting a racing business with a childhood friend who is serving overseas as we speak? Well that is what iRacer Josh Parker and long-time friend Mark Richards are doing. Richards Parker Racing LLC is now an official Dare Stock race team that will debut at Stafford Motor Speedway this Friday, July 6th. So how did this all come about?

The goal of the iRacing protest system is close, clean and enjoyable racing for everyone.

“Racing incidents happen.” — Nim Cross I must say that Nim’s statement is very accurate and profound.  There have been literally thousands of forum strings, emails, video reviews, opinions and discussions over the years about how to deal with those cursed incidents and accidents on iRacing.   Passionate discussions and ideas abound about the sporting code, safe driving, unsafe driving, intentional wrecking, blocking, sportsmanship, acceptable behavior, flaws in the protest system and ideas for more automation  . . . to name a few. There have also been literally thousands of protests filed by concerned members regarding perceived violations of the iRacing sporting code by other members.  In 2010, for example, there were 1,945 protests filed and 3,541 filed in 2011. Those numbers only include accepted protests in which we created a [...]

Rookie Oval Series Change in Season 2, Track Added to Base Content

The Street Stock will take on a new role in 2012 Season 2.

Legends/Street Stock Swap Places; USA Speedway Joins List of Free Tracks In the real world, many oval racers start and enjoy long careers racin’ and rubbin’ on short ovals.  There are many reasons for this including safety and financial considerations, not to mention a driver’s proximity to short tracks.  iRacing has historically followed that progression from Rookie license class on short tracks all the way up to the Pro and World Championship license class.   That is about to change, beginning in 2012 Season 2. Because the existing Ford Legends car is not suited for larger tracks, iRacing plans to move that series to the Advanced Rookie Level for 2012 Season 2, replacing it with the JR Motorsport Street Stock car at the Rookie License level.  As always, all the cars [...]

When it comes to Daytona International Speedway, iRacing will soon be offering its members the best of both worlds: Daytona past and Daytona present. Following the 2010 racing season, of course, the famed “Big D” underwent a $20 million resurfacing project.  Although the primary focus was the 2.5 mile oval, the Bus Stop chicane and adjoining apron on Daytona’s 3.56 mile road course were also resurfaced.  In keeping with its commitment to the accuracy of its digital race circuits, iRacing conducted a total rescan of Daytona following the repaving work and is in the process of rebuilding its version of the track. Although the “new” Daytona International Speedway will be integrated into iRacing’s various online racing series in February, the service will continue to make the “old” Daytona available to [...]

Improving the Sound of iRacing

"'Sound improvements' could mean working on existing sounds like the noise created by crashes . . ."

Although iRacing.com is constantly adding new elements to our online racing service there are always many improvements we would like to make to our current features.  One of those features is sound, which happens to be a very broad topic. When we think of sounds in a racing game, most of us think of the cars’ engine noises, and that certainly that is a focus of our work.   We have some good ideas on how to improve those engine sounds and add more range.   Of course, our objective is to be authentic when it comes to engine sounds — or any sound for that matter.  That’s why we go to the track and record every car in iRacing, and also do things like taking sound meters to the tracks to [...]
