I still very much enjoy the thrill of competition and getting the opportunity to race my son is the best part of it all.

iRacing is the most modern racing simulation ever created. Every inch of every track is modeled perfectly. I've used iRacing to learn new courses such as Virginia International Raceway, or to keep the rust off at tracks such as Infineon Raceway. For the hardcore sim racer, this is your dream simulation. For the real-world racer, this is your 'at-home' test vehicle. www.dalejr.com

iRacing is one of the best tools a young (or veteran) racer can use to better their skills. It’s a huge part of my weekly regimen preparing for the weeks events. Going to new race tracks has never been easier since iRacing has been around. The scans and data that make up the simulation is second to none. It's truly the only way to stay sharp as a race car driver when you can't be on the race track, and for us racing addicts, it’s the perfect fix in-between races!

iRacing really opened doors for me. Now, it has helped open doors for other racers through the new youth league and iRacing initiatives. With iRacing, kids have a chance to get more publicity and experience behind the wheel. If they enjoy it, not only will the sport have a chance to find not only the next generation of drivers but fans as well.

Any time you log onto iRacing.com, there is a good chance you will be racing against some of the best professional race car drivers in the real world. Trust me, there is no sim site more realistic, with the quality of online racing and, more importantly, the ease of use than iRacing.
2016 NHRA Funny Car Champion
Whether racing just for fun or doing serious preparation, iRacing is always in my favorites folder. The detail in the cars and tracks is very impressive. When I'm missing my mile and a half oval stock car fix back here in Europe, I can get straight online and get it right here.

iRacing is good training. It's good to be able to race against other good drivers online. It brings you the kind of pressure you can have on a race weekend when you race against real people. It's the same as the real world where you only get one chance: if you crash, you're done! Just like real.
2016 Verizon IndyCar Series Champion
It's really cool! I use iRacing a lot before I go to every race to try and get a feel for the racetrack. It's so realistic. It's cool how the changes can really relate to real racecars . . . and it's fun.

2018 NASCAR Cup Series Champion / 2007 NASCAR Busch East Series Champion
The iRacing tracks are spot on, plus you're racing against real people. The other day I passed a guy at Lanier Speedway and he came on the voice chat and said, 'Is that you Will? It's me, Oriol [Servia].' When I told him it was me, Oriol said, 'If I'd known that, I wouldn't have let you past so easily!'

I have learned some of the Indy tracks through iRacing and it is great to see that the game just keeps improving. The physics are great! Me and my son Eduardo are having so much fun going through the license phases together.
Formula One & IndyCar Driver
iRacing.com is the number one racing simulation out there. Every track has been perfectly modeled, from every bump to every surface change; it challenges the driver to adjust their driving style to suit each individual situation, as you would have to in real world racing. It is also great for learning new tracks or to serve as a refresher.

Today, more than ever, it's important to be competitive right out of the box. iRacing.com gives me that edge by being able to prepare before I arrive at the track. The cars and tracks are amazingly accurate! On the flip side, it's simply a blast to race online against friends, fans and drivers from all over the world.

iRacing is by far the best racing simulation out there. It’s shocking how finely detailed the tracks are; the visual cues and references points are right on the money. And anything you can adjust on a real car you can adjust on the iRacing version and the effects are the same.

iRacing is such a useful tool each and every weekend. It was even more beneficial than normal with it being at a track (Roval) where no one had real world laps and getting seat time was a premium. Just another reason why iRacing is such a big tool and a benefit to the drivers and teams.

I spent time on Road America where they had an open practice. It was really cool. There were about 60 guys and it was just like a real practice session. One of the guys sent a set-up over digitally and it really helped. I rely on iRacing to get me up to speed in a situation like that.
Former NASCAR Cup Series Driver
2007 NASCAR Xfinity Series Champion
iRacing is as real world as you can get. The graphics and the handling are by far the best I have seen out of any simulation program. And when I'm not home, I can bet my son, Sebastian, is on it racing someone from somewhere around the world.

2016 Porsche Supercup Champion
Porsche Motorsport Factory Driver
I use iRacing for two reasons: work and fun. I prepare my races by learning the tracks I don’t know and by creating a routine with a similar gear set-up to real life. The track details are incredibly good and so is the car physics. The other side is the fun of it, to be able to race to real famous drivers all around the world, it’s very cool.
IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship Series Driver
I am on iRacing as much as I can. It’s amazing how real the tracks and the racing are. The iRacing simulation is a tremendous amount of help. It lets me take some laps on a track I have never seen before.
NASCAR Nationwide and K&N East Driver, 10 time X Game Gold Medalist, 2001 AMA Supercross Champion
iRacing has been a great tool for me to learn the race tracks we go to, especially the road courses where I don’t have the experience. On the ovals, it really helps me to get re-familiar with the track, coming to pit road, and where the bumps are! The most realistic program to get the job done

iRacing.com is the best racing simulator hands down. Not only for the accuracy of the laser scanned tracks and cars, but also anyone can sign up and be racing against professional drivers from across the world who like me, use iRacing as a tool to improve driving skills. Not only does it have a lot of use for race preparation and practice, it's a lot of fun! Come take us on!

I use iRacing all the time. We have a sim racing chassis set up in the race shop. It's a big help when there's long breaks in the schedule between oval or road races. It really helps you get back in the swing of things when you haven't raced one discipline or the other for awhile . . . plus it's quite a lot of fun!
Verizon IndyCar Series Driver
iRacing has no competition, it's the closest you can get to the real thing! I wouldn't waste my time on anything else out there. The tracks are inch perfect, the cars behave so realistically, and you race against real people which is so much fun!
Indy Lights/IndyCar; 2007 McLaren Autosport young driver Award Winner.
Most professional athletes can practice seven or eight hours a day, but with restrictions on testing, racing drivers do not have that opportunity. The racing video games that have become available in the last few years have helped, but iRacing is a BIG step forward. The cars and tracks are so realistic.
Verizon IndyCar Series driver
Regardless of what you drive, for real-world racers iRacing is a tool. The bumps, the elevation changes, how you drive the track - it's dead on. At Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Turn 6 is for me the toughest corner because it is so fast and so edgy. And in the sim it feels exactly the same as in real life; you kind of hold your breath and hope you come out the other end.

I'd never driven any kind of car on the Phoenix oval. But running PIR on iRacing really helped me get up to speed quickly. What really impressed me was just how straightforward it is to get the system up and running on your computer. I just downloaded the iRacing software, followed the Quick Setup guide and in no more than an hour I was on track. The whole process was seamless.

I'm on iRacing on a near daily basis. It helps to keep the rust off by simulating real life situations by racing with such a wide variety of great drivers. I make multiple laps on the tracks I have never been to before and when I race them in real life, it feels like I have been there a hundred times. And on top of all that...it's plain out fun!

As a driver I get lots of opportunities to drive on different sims and racing software. There is no question iRacing has by far the most realistic cars, tracks and head-to-head racing. The others don't even compare. Once you try iRacing you'll be hooked for life.
I'm on iRacing daily and think it's a huge help and very fun!

iRacing has been a huge part of my preparation as a racing driver. The car and track model accuracy is unprecedented, and the intensity of the online racing is great training. Plus it's great fun. I've driven various race car simulators but, for me, iRacing is still the best I've come across. iRacing has for sure made me a better race driver.
2012 Formula Renault 3.5 Series driver
After competing on dirt tracks, I now am seeing big pavement tracks for the first time, but because of iRacing, I'm familiar with my surroundings before I ever turn a real-life lap. When I'm not at the track or in the shop, this is one of the best ways to bring a little fun into my day.
NASCAR Nationwide Driver
As a rookie in the NASCAR Camping World Truck series, I used iRacing to learn the new race tracks. It's amazing how accurate iRacing is - not only the layout of the track but the track surface and the signage, which is critical for landmarks. Even the feel and handling of the truck was right . . . not to mention racing on the sim is just plain fun!

When I started to race IMSA, I didn’t know four or five tracks so I bought a seat, a steering wheel and a subscription to iRacing. I bought the Corvette C6.R because it was good to learn the tracks with a powerful, front-engine, rear wheel drive, sports car.
iRacing gives race drivers the opportunity to train and to simulate test days more realistic than any other simulation. I used iRacing to train for my races in Formula Renault 1.6 and I finished fifth at Zandvoort at the first race, without even one test day, which shows how accurate the iRacing tracks are.

You develop reference points around the track on iRacing and when you get to the real track they are the same. Plus I've always enjoyed gaming, so with Bruno Junqueira and Oriol Servia, we are enjoying some iRacing competition between us.

iRacing is a very valuable tool for learning new tracks. It also helps sharpen your racecraft. There are some seriously quick sim-racers out there, and the concentration you need to run consistent laps with someone in your mirrors is the same whether it’s online or on the real track.
Driver for TRG/Aston Martin in Tudor United SportsCar Championship
iRacing was a key factor in the success of my first oval race in a NASCAR Nationwide car at Loudon. Gaining seat time and learning the nuances of the car, the track, and working on various lines was crucial in getting me up to speed. iRacing will become an even more important tool for future drivers because if you aren't getting the edge from the additional seat time, your competitor will be.
iRacing is unmatched as a sim. It has literally become my home test track! For people looking to experience the thrill of auto racing without the expense of the real thing, iRacing is the place to be.

Just yesterday I was on iRacing for awhile around Indianapolis (Motor Speedway). This morning I got in the car and the first lap was full throttle, just like I’d been in the car all night.

iRacing has become a very important tool to me as a race engineer when it comes to understanding what my driver is experiencing. Unless you’ve felt the car step-out over the crest of the hill in Turn 5 at Mid-Ohio, you really don’t understand what the driver is experiencing. Any engineer looking to improve communication with their driver should be using iRacing.
IMSA/IndyCar race engineer
iRacing is not only a fun hobby but an invaluable tool for practicing. As a clubman racer in the UK, finite budgets mean testing is a limited commodity. Being able to jump into a Radical to test your line through Paddock Hill bend, without leaving the comfort of your home is just awesome. I would recommend that race fans and competitors alike look to iRacing to bring the experience of real world racing into the home.

There are so many incredible opportunities for Dallara, being a world wide racing car and high performance road car manufacturer, to improve its own products, designs and engineering activities through a strong cooperation with iRacing. I am very excited about that. But this is not enough to describe it: I am very excited about the partnership with iRacing people who I personally know and trust as I am convinced that people are the ultimate competitive advantage for every company.
Head of R&D and US Racing Business Leader, Dallara Automobili
I actually met David Kaemmer several years ago when he was with Papyrus. I truly believe he is the best in the business when it comes to racing simulations. I'm really impressed with the iRacing format. It helps develop self-discipline in your racing.
2020 NASCAR Hall of Fame Inductee

iRacing is equally beneficial to a driver who's brand new to the sport or someone with 20 years experience. A new driver can learn all the right skills and avoid picking up bad habits. Somebody with experience can reconfirm their feel for a particular track and hone their skills. Either way, you can get prepared without all the cost of going to the track and running the real cars.
1994 NASCAR Busch Grand National Champion
Seat time; where to get it and how to make the most of it, a constant struggle for any up and coming racer. In pursuit of my racing dream I referenced iRacing more times then I could count. I encourage those who have not yet experienced it to give it a shot; you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how soon you’ll be relating simulation to the real world!

Think of the benefits that can arise from a driver and an engineer working together on iRacing. The engineer now has exclusive access to the driver, listening to his real time feedback, asking questions without fear of causing an accident by interrupting the driver's concentration. With iRacing you can make set-up changes almost instantaneously, changes that are not possible to make at the track during a race weekend owing to time constraints, How can you not have iRacing as a weapon in your arsenal?
IndyCar race engineer
iRacing’s tracks are spot on. I used it a lot in preparing for my first test in a Daytona Prototype at Daytona Speedway. When I got to the track for the first time, I felt like I knew it already and was able to get up to speed quickly.

iRacing is fantastic for everything from learning a track and its lines to practicing advanced race craft and tactics. The laser-scanned tracks are perfect; every lap is relevant to real life and it means I can start a race weekend ahead of my opposition, even at a track I haven't driven before. It's also a great community to be part of; a great way to mix competition with making new friends. www.michaelepps.co.uk

Driving the perfect lap is all about executing a plan for that lap. The iRacing simulation is so accurate, you can develop and master that plan at a fraction of the cost of trying to do it in a real car.
Professional Driving/Racing Coach / former Skip Barber Racing School Chief Instructor
After six years of iRacing I sat in a real race car at Sebring for the first time during my Skip Barber school. Nothing was a surprise because my brain had already experienced dozens of laps in the same car on the same track in iRacing. This happened again at my next event at Road Atlanta. It shows the detail that iRacing provides and why iRacing is the best motor sports simulation.
Skip Barber Racing Scholarship Winner
iRacing is the best motorsports simulation out there. The tracks are spot on, right down to the bumps, and the cars react just like the real thing. I used it during the Grand-Am weekend at Daytona after one of the Koni Challenge practices, and I learned some things I missed in the session. The price of iRacing is cheap for the amount of seat time you get -- and the amount of fun you have.
2008 Ford Racing Mustang Challenge Champion
iRacing has definitely helped keep my skills sharp and ready for upcoming races. I have found iRacing to be so effective that I decided to have my two boys use iRacing instead of go-karts, especially during the hot Arizona summer months. Me and my boys really enjoy spending time racing on iRacing every chance we get.

iRacing is the most enjoyable and realistic simulation available and it keeps getting better. The tracks are fantastic and identical to the real ones, like I found out at Road Atlanta. You can race just for fun but I also really like the competition in the higher series. Winning the iRacing.com World Championship Grand Prix Series is my best achievement in sim racing and the competition keeps me coming back for more.

There were so many things I’ve learned from competitive sim racing that put me ahead of a lot of other drivers. iRacing isn’t only useful for learning tracks, but for knowing how to race smart, thinking ahead, blocking everything out of your mind and doing what needs to be done to win the race.
