Tim Wheatley’s Brickyard 400 Benefiting LIVESTRONG

July 26th, 2010 by

I felt very, very confident heading into the iRacing.com Brickyard 400 Benefiting LIVESTRONG. I had done very little testing but felt comfortable with the iRacing Advanced setup almost immediately.

The Wheatley Report: iRacing Historic British Grand Prix

July 11th, 2010 by

I managed to get some testing in before this event and felt pretty confident in my consistency before the race. It turned out my confidence was not misplaced as I had a really fun time in the Historic British Grand Prix at Silverstone using the Lotus 79 1978 Formula One machine. I had ran a … Read the Rest »

A Question of Balance

June 30th, 2010 by

Tim’s Talladega 499

April 28th, 2010 by

After the Talladega 312 on Friday evening, I had plenty of time to reflect on what I had done during the event and decided that there was probably nothing I could have done to avoid being caught up in an incident at one time or another.

Talladega Superspeedway has been my favorite place to watch a race since I first discovered NASCAR in 1994: I could not believe racing of this type existed and after watching a few seasons of Formula One that had bored me to tears or drove me to them with death and ram-happy Germans; I latched onto … Read the Rest »

February 22nd, 2010 by

Or A Tale of What Might Have Been The evening before the iRacing Daytona 500, I changed my PC’s motherboard in preparation for a graphics card upgrade.  Unfortunately, although I reinstalled Windows 7, reinstalled a bunch of programs, got iRacing working, etc, I forgot to do something terribly important… On Saturday 13th February, 2010 I … Read the Rest »

Wheatley’s Rolex 2.4

February 1st, 2010 by

I’ve been around simracing for quite some time and I can safely say that I’ve only felt the way I did during Saturday’s iRacing Rolex 2.4 at Daytona once before: It was back in 2003 when I tasked myself with re-installing Grand Prix Legends (one of the iRacing development team’s previous creations) and running a … Read the Rest »
