Welcome to inRacingNews, the first publication to bring you all the news from the world’s foremost race simulation service together with the latest developments from Formula One, NASCAR, IndyCar, ALMS, Grand-Am and other top professional racing series.

Race simulation has become increasingly sophisticated and popular in the past twenty years, evolving from primitive video games to an avocation enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people who lack the time, money or opportunity to race cars in the physical world.  In addition to being just plain fun, sim-racing develops many of the physical and mental skills required in real-world racing, be it sustained concentration, hand-eye coordination or the ability to dispassionately analyze the performance of a race car and make the mechanical changes necessary to enable it to go faster.

At the same time, with race sanctioning bodies imposing ever more draconian restrictions on testing and with racing budgets of even the largest automotive manufacturers under minute scrutiny, race simulation assumes an ever more critical role in the development of race cars, and the men and women who drive them.   From the days when Jacques Villeneuve used video games to familiarize himself with Spa and Monza as an F1 rookie, to the point where multi-million dollar race simulation machines are a fixture in the shops of today’s leading professional teams . . . and an iRacer in Sydney can find himself running wheel-to-wheel with Dale Earnhardt, Jr. or Alex Gurney on a virtual Daytona International Speedway . . . sim-racing has become an integral element of the fabric of modern motorsport.david-phillips-4x3-hires-dsc011991

Sim-racer in Sydney or real-world racer at Daytona, the one thing they have in common is a passion for racing.   inRacingNews is committed to fueling that passion, and to bringing you the important news in sim- and real-world racing in a single and engaging publication.  If you have half the fun reading inRacingNews as we have putting it together, we will have accomplished our mission.

Enjoy.

Thanks for all the hard work behind both this site, and in particular the whole iRacing service.

With that said; This site looks like it have got a big potential so combine, the need for motorsport news all over the world combined with the attraction to see whats up in our favorite simracing community.

Beside this; A little work on the speed on the site would be nice. I don’t know if its just the pressure of posting on the “press room” on iRacing.com, that makes this site run like a old fat cat on a monday morning.

Nice site. I really like the layout and UI. Some news site are so clumsy to get to the news. Plus, either you’ve got some scoops or you are picking up on some stuff my other sites have chosen not to report. Either way, I’m impressed.
I’ve not been on iRacing in over a year but I still like to keep up to date with how it’s going so the site serves a nice dual purpose too.
Bookmarked!

All the best!

Brilliant idea. I hope our iRacing race reviews can suscite as much enthousiasm as real world race.
One suggestion, if I may: It would be a welcome addition to clearly indicate the source of each one of the articles in the second line alongside Date, Comments and Share.
