Looking for that private league feel in an official iRacing series? Would you like to see bigger splits in “regular” races? Or maybe you’d just like a little something extra from your weekly races. If you answered yes to any of the above (and even if you didn’t), then iRacing’s newest mini-series – JWH Racing League – is for you. From now until the end of Season 3, the league will bring together iRacers with all levels of experience and skill for spirited but friendly competition in the regularly-scheduled NASCAR iRacing Class C Series race (Thursdays at 8:45 pm ET) and the Skip Barber Series race (Sundays at 3:45 pm ET). As with any other regular iRacing event, each split matches sim racers with similar skills and experience. The beauty of JWHRL is that you’ll also be competing with everyone in all the other splits – no matter the strength of field – for league points. Otherwise the races will run exactly the same as always; nothing will be different apart from the fact that league points and standings will be calculated off-line and reported on the Member Site and inRacingNews.

New Features Make World’s Leading Online Racing Service Easier and More Fun For the more than 20,000 race gamers and other racing enthusiast members of iRacing.com, the online racing experience just keeps getting better. The latest quarterly update to the iRacing.com service, released earlier this week, introduces new and enhanced features that will make the racing more fun, more convenient, and more realistic than ever. “One of the great things about iRacing’s internet-based model is that it allows us to regularly add new features and content and tweak existing ones seamlessly, without inconvenience to our members,” said Tony Gardner, iRacing.com’s president. “When a member logs on, his or her software is automatically updated.” Gardner noted that while minor changes are made frequently, larger enhancements are normally implemented about every 90 days. “When we opened our doors to the public two years ago, iRacing.com was already the most accurate racing simulation available to the public, and provided the best racing experience ever,” Gardner said. “But we told those first subscribers that this was just the beginning, that we’d make the service better and better. We’ve lived up to that promise.

Historic Connecticut Facility is Latest Online Racing Short Track For 70 years Thompson International Speedway has challenged New England’s finest racing drivers. With the announcement that iRacing.com will add the legendary Connecticut track to its inventory, fans of the legendary high-banked, five-eighths mile oval and short-track online racing enthusiasts around the world will soon be able to measure themselves against a track that in its history has sent drivers to the winner’s circle in the Daytona 500 and success on the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit. “I’m pleased that we’ve been able to put together this alliance with iRacing.com,” said Jonathan Hoenig, the track’s director of business development and marketing and the fourth generation of his family to be involved with Thompson International Speedway. “The timing couldn’t be better as we use innovative technology and other modern business management tools to move the sport of short-track racing forward for the benefit of both fans and participants.” “Our fans are loyal and enthusiastic,” Hoenig said. “Many of them would be on the track racing if they could – and now through iRacing.com, they will be able to race on an exact digital duplicate of the speedway when they’re not attending races. We look forward to our local fans and racing game enthusiasts from all over the world being able to participate in online racing series that include Thompson International Speedway.” Hoenig, who holds an MBA degree from Pepperdine University and whose great-grandfather began construction of the speedway in 1938, also noted that as host to a NASCAR touring series and seven of its own racing classes, each year the track saw a number of drivers make their maiden appearances. “Just as many NASCAR Sprint Cup stars such as Joey Logano and Martin Truex, Jr.
