This is the world record screen. I have filtered it by this week's track and car combo in the NASCAR iRacing Series and sorted it by practice time. I'm the 3rd fastest in the world, currently.

Weirdly I was having issues with my team's setups this week, so I went back to baseline and made a couple of minor tweaks. Set this time just now. Almost a second faster than I was doing earlier this week!

Ah wait, it's just the Toyota Camry, doesn't include the Chevy or Ford times. So that makes me 14th in the world overall. Still pretty good.

Nice work. Practice is paying off. How high do you have to go before prize money is involved?

A long way to go. My iRating is about 2200 at the moment. To put it in perspective I was in split 6 of 7 in the Pro Series on Tuesday. To stand a chance of qualifying for the Peak series I need to be in the top 2 splits because of how the points system works. The worst driver in split 2 had just over 5000 iR.

It's unlikely I'll ever get that far, tbh.

IMSA is at Daytona this week and has been very unkind to me so far. First race a guy cut across the kink on lap 2 and wiped four other cars out (including me). Second race I ended up tangling with a slow GTE driver who'd just recovered from a different incident with another GT3 car. I thought he had let me through so I tracked out, but of course he'd decided to pull alongside me. I came off worse.

I lost 105 iR from those two races alone. Just about to race BSS at Bathurst and it's not a track I'm especially confident at.

You're quite right. I much prefer the oval to the road course.

Bathurst no better. I tap someone from behind on lap 2 as he braked way earlier than I was expecting - he gets stuck in the wall and I have nowhere to go but plough straight into him. We have to wait for the whole lot to stream past us before I can reverse and get us going again. I need to pit and get 11 mins worth of damage fixed. Then with about 10 laps to go with a still slightly damaged car I get loose at the top of the mountain and put it into the fence myself. What a shitty week so far, and it only started yesterday.

For no other reason than the lulz I created a passenger cam and watched a replay of myself in VR doing a lap around Spa at night.

We had our best BES Pro Quali race of the season at Suzuka yesterday afternoon. Started 35th of 55 teams in Split 3/3 and ended up finishing P13. I drove the first two hours before handing over to my teammate Jonathan who drove the last two. We managed to keep the car completely clean until about 4 laps from the end when he lost it coming out of the hairpin and slightly grazed the wall. Luckily P14 was too far behind to capitalise and it didn't seem to affect our lap times.

The top 25 teams get pro licences and entry to the Blancpain GT Pro Series. We are currently 214th of 359 after 3 rounds. :D

Next race is 3 hours of Road Atlanta in two weeks' time.

So it's quarterly update day! This means using Test Drive to try out all the cars I don't own. First up, wingless sprint cars at Eldora! These are meant to be the hardest dirt cars to drive - I'm trying out the lower-powered one of the two.

I thought iRacing was supposed to be realistic? The crash sounds in this are appaaling, almost as it some Drunk Somalian guy was singing into a microphone.

Experimented with streaming with mixed results. Can't stream 1080p60 properly which is no surprise, but I can't get my overlays working either. :(

My best finish in a rallycross feature (2nd) also includes a very close finish and a great use of the joker by my opponent, but I had just enough momentum to hold onto P2.

"Herbie Goes Bananas"

My first win in the rallycross discipline - I won both my heat and the feature race in my first try at Iowa Speedway this week! Only took seven events in total.

Well, it's that time of year again: the 24 Hours of Daytona. Starts at 1:30pm Saturday, finishes 1:30pm Sunday. My old team has reformed and we'll be trying not to crash the #70 Wernä Digital eSports Racing Ferrari 488 GTE (chassis name Gretchen) for a full day.

I'll probably try streaming it unless it destroys my PC.

Server threw a wobbly and we didn't get the Grid button so had to leave the session and rejoin. By that time the race had started. We started from the pit lane and then swapped ends at the bus stop trying to negotiate GT3 traffic. 11 mins pit stop and we're back out, I'm assuming dead last. Nothing to lose from here!

We've recovered well! Up to 15th in class with 10 hours and 328 laps gone. We dropped to dead last (54th) overall and now up to 27th. Top ten GTE finish feasible!

I had to short pit my second stint about 25 mins early as I was getting progressively worse frame rates.

Going to sleep now and may not be needed for the rest of the race. Will find out when I get up.

Up to P14 though!

We were up to 10th in class at one point, but contact with another car ended those dreams. Finished P14 in split #11 of 17.

Put this together today. It's reasonably well-made despite being at the cheap end of the scale, although the shifter plate is a bit wobbly. Not sure what I can do about that.

Is it wobbly due to poor construction, poor materials or poor design. All can overcome!

Think it's the design. No matter how tight you tighten the screws, it doesn't feel on properly. I've come up with a temporary solution for now.
