Bug fixes for Hosted Edition

Sunday, February 17th, 2013

An updated version of Hosted Edition is out today, which you’ll probably want to switch over to. Main bug fixes are to allow downloading of league races, and also to fix another bug where timed races (as opposed to fixed lap races) were ignored. This version doesn’t download Tournament results yet, but that is forthcoming.

As usual, delete your old version completely when upgrading to the new version. Your existing licence key unlocks ALL versions/flavours of Racing Rivals!

Head on over to the download page to get started!

Oval Road Odyssey – Zandvoort GP (iRacing members only!)

The penultimate venue in season two of the Oval Road Odyssey league (‘ORO’) took us to the newest track in iRacing’s library, Zandvoort. I had never driven the circuit before (in any sim), and my only experience with the track was when I did the last batch of ‘Real Or Virtual?’ comparison images (available here).

The race was a cracker – another exciting race in the late models, and one to remember! I had a very good starting position with second on the grid but soon lost that advantage as I tumbled down the order to 13th place due to yet another turn one incident (having a bad run of luck in that regard lately).

The scene was set for a spirited fight back, and over the 16 laps I was able to salvage a decent result (not as good as I’d hoped, but OK nonetheless).

As usual, the highlight reel follows!
