iRacer Profile: Mirko Salati

December 8th, 2012 by

Funny what a difference a season can make.  2012 Season 3 saw Mirko Salati best Julian Rodriguez Moreno and Diego Comuni to take the Mustang Challenge on the strength of eight wins and 20 top fives from 22 starts.   Midway through Season 4, with just one start to his name, Salati occupies 318th place … Read the Rest »

September 8th, 2012 by

iRacing isn’t just about the DWCs, A licenses, stratospheric iRatings and pro racers like Dale Earnhardt Jr and Joey Logano,Will Power and Justin Wilson who you’ll occasionally bump into (hopefully not literally) on the site.  It’s also about the thousands of casual hobbie-ists who are content with their B, C and D licenses . . … Read the Rest »

August 25th, 2012 by

One would be well-advised not to attempt to pigeon-hole Austin Ogonoski.  When it comes to his sim-racing preferences for ovals or road courses, it’s no contest.  The Edmonton resident has nearly six times as many oval (581) as road racing (97) starts on his iRacing resume.  It only follows then that his favorite iRacing track … Read the Rest »

iRacer Profile – Samuel Doughty

July 21st, 2012 by

It comes as no surprise that an iRacer who lists Big Bang Theory as his favorite television show should drive for SkullGeek Racing.  It’s a name only Sheldon Cooper, Leonard Hoftstadter  — and Samuel Doughty and a few thousand iRacers – could love.   On the other hand, what are the chances that an iRacer who … Read the Rest »

iRacer Profile – Erik Nixon

February 11th, 2012 by

“Maybe you’re not as good as you think you are” may be words to live by in Erik Nixon’s mind.   When it comes to sim racing, though, Erik Nixon is pretty good – whether he thinks so or not.  A central figure in the Classic Lotus Grand Prix Series, Nixon currently holds-down P2 in the … Read the Rest »

iRacer Profile: John Schweickart

December 3rd, 2011 by

When it comes to iRacing, John Schweickart is on movin’ on up.  Although the Dayton, Ohio-based Schweickurt has been sim racing for the best part of a decade, he is only now closing-in on completing his second full year of iRacing.  And looking better and better all the time.  After finishing a rather distant (at … Read the Rest »
