I read about this race series (the real one) in a magazine.  They are seeking real rookie drivers to take part in an actual spec race series.  It's cool they are using iRacing as another way to find talent.

Ages 16-26... that's RockyC and who else?

Go get em!

Enough reason to move across the pond or to get swine flu? Meh..
It's a nice idea though from that series organization to team up with iRacing. Wasn't there a simracer who got into the real life Legend Cars via iRacing?

I think all the SJ members that are eligible are Rocky, Adam Gerkitz(Ace_Racer), and me. At least that's all the North Americans who play it and meet the age requirements.

Not to bring anyone down or harass iRacing, but it shows yet again that even though this is shipped and played all over the world, it is aimed for Americans.

I have said it all along. American cars, american tracks and well, this is just another nail in the box.

It's an American based series. You expect them to ship a driver back and forth for an entire year to run a support series?

Ah never mind... I will not get into anything here.

 One of the main reasons I haven't any interest.

 The TDi though, now THAT might get me more interested. Been a fan of the series since it's inception.

 Does this mean they will add some European/etc tracks?

I'd get into the closet, Jarkko, a straight G25 drives a lot better I think.
