Skippy action at VIR

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

This is an excellent video of some really good racing at VIR (great footwork camera too!).

I missed this weeks racing at VIR in the Skippy – I spent far too much time racing the Impala B at Watkins Glen (in the new fixed setup series).

Real Vs. Virtual – Road America

Sunday, August 15th, 2010

Number 11 in the series is from Road America. Thanks again to Jay Bonvouloir for his generous permission to use his excellent source photography.

The iRacing recreations come by way of the iRacing Road America 200, which was a special race event in the 2010 iRacing World Tour. You can read my post on the iRacing Road America 200 by clicking here.

A static page containing all the source images can be seen here, and you can see the previous sets in the series by clicking here.

The iRacing Williams FW31

It’s not out for at least another three months but a recent preview in the latest InsideSimRacing episode had a very interesting segment on the AT&T Williams FW31. The graphical model appears complete and the car is driveable in sim which is a good sign.

I was wondering what variant of the FW31 we’d get and it appears to be the early season model / Australia GP. The car should be available to drive as we start the next season (2010 season 4).
