War for 24

While most teams encountered trouble and challenges, most also survived and crossed the line after 24 hours, champions of the spirit of Le Mans. An amazing twenty four of the starting 30 were there at the end, some in better shape than others, but they were there nonetheless. The select few who would avoid calamity throughout were able to find themselves fighting for a podium or even a win. In LMP2 and GTE, it was Torque Freak Racing who best mastered the track and their minds as they swept those two classes and as result receive full entry into the 2019 Majors Series, season passes and all. The Arnage team battled Team MAD all race, but in the end had enough and little more to hold off the

State of the Series (Part 4 - Da Money)

Fourth and final article, in a few hours we will be sending out an link to the Mid-Season survey. I've seen it said that iRacing within sim racing is a niche within a niche and that the number of participants will always be pretty small. Maybe, but I have also seen the recent ground swell of momentum towards the (more) mainstream. Real motor sports have taken notice and we seem to be in this awkward place where there are lots of opinions on the role of sim racing under the motor sports umbrella. Some think it's a legitimate training tool, others are more interested in it from a marketing perspective. (that is code for...they want want to make money off it) Ahh yes, the money. Is there money

State of the Series (Part 3 - Competition)

What is it that each of us is looking for every time we strap into our rigs? Competition Whether that competition be against the; track, ourselves or our opponents, we are not looking for an easy victory, we are looking for a test and the tougher the better. And that is the topic at hand. How do we improve the competition, both in numbers and ability? How do we make our own challenge, even harder? It's an important subject as we have so many drivers in the series and the ability levels vary greatly. Those who struggle early may not come back, resigned to the idea that they just are not good enough to compete. That thinking is flawed, as this series has never been and will never be about cate

State of the Series (Part 2)

Who owns the Majors Series? Most people would probably point to me, and while that is not wrong, I like to think it goes a bit deeper than that. It is important to me that all of our members are active owners in the series. That everyone feels like the success of the series rests on their shoulders, because, well... it does! The next few articles will focus on how we can all help the series via; promotion, driver development, series administration and financially. Before we get into all that though, I want to thank a few of the people who have been instrumental in making the series happen. The 2018 Competition Committee; Wayne Hutchison, Adam Young and John King. The amount of hours, energy

State of the Series (the down & dirty)

Seven races down, seven to go and we are entering our "summer break" so to speak as we have almost 6 weeks between points paying races, but let's be honest, there are no breaks. Le Mans is less than three weeks away and it is shaping up to be a truly epic 24 hour war. Today you will see the 12 teams who are officially racing the LMP1 category and you will be able to register yourself or your team to compete as well. As we transition from the first half of the season we are going to take some time to present the "State of the Series" by covering some important topics. The first of which is simply a "Down and Dirty", numbers based overview of how we are doing. If you enjoy statistics and data
