  1. Hey guys!

    It's been awhile, but I finally got around to driving F1 2017 again, and streamed my Malaysia race last night. I won't spoil anything, but you won't be disappointed; it was a spectacular race that wasn't supposed to be. Check it out:  

     

    In other news, GMS will be running the iRacing 12hr of Sebring and will be streamed live likely on the same Twitch channel, so be sure to tune in for that and follow for much more!

    Hey everyone. This isn’t actually a sim racing thing but I thought I should just say, merry Christmas every one. Have a good week, if you’re off school for the next few weeks enjoy it. But remember drinking and driving don’t mix. But sometimes it does with sim racing. But I didn’t tell you that.

This game is really cool, and l'd like to get a little better at it, but it won't cooperate. l've adjusted, and readjusted all the Controller Configurations. turned all the Assists off one at a time, and nothing. ls there a secret to playing this game or is it me? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks B4TM4N.

    What is Sim Racing System?  Well, if you're interested in doing some competitive league style racing, what you're looking for is Sim Racing System.  In a nut shell Sim Racing System is a free mod as a service that offers racing 24 hours of the day, with races starting every hour in a different vehicle class.   

    For example, there might be a race at 9:00 PM in an Audi TT Cup Car, followed by a race at 10:00 PM in GT3 cars. 

    Additionally, SRS will track your incidents of off tracks, crashes, and your finishing positions.  These things together will provide your profile with a rating.  This rating is used for splitting of races, as well as barriers to entry to more competitive series like the official SRS GT3 Series. 

    With all these things put together, it can lead to a very fun and competitive racing environment with a really great community behind it. 

    If you want to use Sim Racing System, then the first thing you have to do is head over to www.SimRacingSystem.com and sign up to become a member.  

    Once confirmed, which is instant, you are granted access to the Sim Racing System landing page.  Here you'll see several tabs, we'll start off by hovering over the SRS menu item, and clicking on instructions.  This takes you to a page that guides you through the installation process of the Assetto Corsa app but I'll give you the quick version. 

    Click on the link for Assetto Corsa App 

    Download the zip file, and unpack it to your root Assetto Corsa Folder. 

    Once you have that unpacked launch Assetto Corsa,  

    load up the options menu,  

    head over to the General Section,  

    scroll down to the bottom,  

    and place a check mark on the Sim Racing System UI. 

    This puts an SRS icon on your menu bar on the left, click it, log in, and you're ready to register for a race. 

    Easy Peasy, and welcome to sim racing system. 

    Honestly speaking, this mod adds something to Assetto Corsa that the game devs couldn't.   

    A true league racing experience.   

    People pay monthly fees for things like this, and Henrique, the brains behind this, is kind enough to give it away for free.  We can't thank him enough.

    We're ready to grow!

    At All Virtual Racing, we have built a site that is designed to host a big and wide community of virtual racers. We now need people to help make it grow while making sure that it stays on track, and grown in the right direction.

    Therefore, we are taking in people that are experts and passionate about any aspect of virtual racing, to join a team that decides what that direction should be, helps come up with plans on how to get there, and take part in executing those plans.

    • Community managers
    • Creative masterminds
    • League Organizers
    • Charismatic Personalities
    • Code Junkies
    • Tuning experts
    • Commentators
    • Legal advisors
    • Business & Marketing experts

    Any input or skill that you might think is relevant, probably is! We are looking for experts and specialists across any platform any game and any aspect of a community platform.

    Our Vision

    Instead of having many different groupings of racers across the internet, all requiring you to sign up to their own partly active forum, we want one central platform that allows groups to run what they want to, and users to sign up to what they love doing

    The idea is simple. Sign up to just one place,
    join any group, club, team, activity or interest available
    (or create your own.)

    We want to create one central place for all virtual racing, where we all can hang out, interact help each other and make virtual racing better while allowing for the freedom of each gamer, platform or interest to do as they please.

    About you

    We need experts in all areas of virtual racing, to give us feedback, come up with ideas, and get people involved with the project. If you are a right fit to the task, and the rest of the team, you’ll take on a leadership position within your given field.

    We haven’t carved the areas of interest in stone yet, but we expect to need people across any racing game, skill level, and gaming platform. Besides the actual racing, we also want people who are passionate about other aspects of racing games (such as painting, tuning, photography etc.)

    To assist with more technical and hands-on issues, league organizers, broadcasters, commentators, web designers, coders, graphic designers etc are also more than welcomed.  

    About the task

    This is a volunteer job, so there will be no payment as such. Depending on how it goes through, you would be able to add it to your CV, and we’d be glad to make a recommendation if you’d need one.

    We expect commitment and engagement in the project. We want you to be active, passionate as well as share our dream of one big friendly community for virtual racers, that respect and welcome any other gamer who feels the same.

    We will initially start an Advisor Group, that would include any serious interest in taking part in shaping the community. From there, we'll be handpicking single area custodians, who will lead their respective area of expertise.

    What to do

    Simply get in touch. You can either send us a message using our contact info in the footer, send an email to hello@allvirtualracing.com. You can also get in touch through social media (Twitter or Facebook) or simply register to this site, and send a direct message to  @Firben to let us know you want to be a part of the Advisor Group.

    After you have been added to the group, you'll have access to the advisor group discussion area, where we all meet and discuss what and how to proceed.

    Although I currently love spending time on  F1 2017, it still feels like I'm just spending the time, waiting for the patch that Project Cars have promised will come soon. This would correct up to 150 issues in the game (but no details about what has been corrected).

    Personally, I hope that it will improve online racing, make it more stable and streamline car performance so that it does not change quite as mutch from qualifying to race.

    Also, I challenge you Devon to some Call of Duty when this new game comes out. :CLINDOEIL:

    I'm nearly done with the career mode in DiRT 4.  I have 100% completion on rally, landrush, rallycross, and historic rally, and am nearly done with the Triple Crown, with just the last two rallycross locations remaining.  This should finish up my racing plans until Forza Motorsport 7 arrives.

    I'd hate to start this with the stereotypical "Hello my name is *etc*" or whatever. But anyway. Hello. I'm Jarrett.

    I'm a Gamer, Car lover and Otaku, and if you'll forgive me for having a non-standard profile picture. I don't particularly like pictures of myself. I have a history of gaming, having started with a PS1 back in the very early 2000s when I was really young. (I'm 18 btw) But my first real proper racing game experience was on the PS2, I had a few racing games but I guess my first introduction to "sim" racing if you could call it that was Gran Turismo 3, which I quickly changed to Gran Turismo 4 when it came out. I thoroughly maintain that Gran Turismo 4 is probably the best racing gave that was ever made. But I'm not here to wax lyrical about why.

    While I believe it is the best racing game ever made. Its not my favourite. That belongs to a game known as Road Trip Adventure. A quirky Japanese game about Toy cars in an open world. I like to think it was kind of a predecessor to The Crew, as a Car-PG, a racing/driving game with RPG like characteristics. It is not the best game, its physics are wonky, its graphically pretty unimpressive, and it can get grindy. But to me, and my much younger self. Its my favourite. It certainly helped me gain a knowledge of a lot of weird and wacky JDM vehicles, but it didn't skimp out on other countries cars either.

    Currently. (Although I still play these two games and others like them consistently) I play a combination of Forza Motorsport 6, (soon 7), Forza Horizon 3, Grand Theft Auto 5, and various other games like League of Legends and CMS2017. I am, as of right now, level 656 on Forza 6, and I race mainly with my friends that I met through the Failrace Forums. I typically race low classes although I occasionally stray into higher classes. My favourite vehicles to use are rotaries, hence why I have a competitive one in nearly every class. Be it an GSL-SE RX7 in C-class, an FD RX7 in B-class, an 550hp Turbo RX8 in A. And various others. Check out that GSL-SE of mine in C-class btw. Its faster than most of the leaderboard trash that I've seen most public lobbies infested with. (my GT is Raregliscor1 and the tunes name is FBroken) 

    Thanks for reading, if you have any questions feel free to ask.

  8. I bought F1 2017 the other night. All fluff aside; I love it. It's a fantastic game. Yes, it's a game. It's not necessarily a simulation, and that's fine. It's a great game.

    Anyway, let's get into it...

     

    My career in F1 will start in the year 2017. Picked up by Haas F1, I'm an American driver racing for an American team. Even though it's going to be my rookie year in the series, there will be a lot expected of the hometown hero. With Grosjean by my side and a fantastic team of R&D/Race Engineers, hopefully it'll be a season to write home about.

     

    As far as assists, I'll be running without them. Full practice and qualy sessions, and 100% race length. We're pro mode now, baby...

     

    Stay tuned for a summary of the first round. Australia, here we come!

    Just want to get this stuff out of the way really quickly:

    I am ambimental, also known as John, and I'm an arcade racer turned amateur simracer. I've been racing for about four years on and off, but I've only been taking it "seriously" (i you can call it that) for the last year or so. I'm nothing special; I can just about keep the wheels between the lines. I'll generally bring the car home in good shape, but there's no guarantee it's getting there quickly.

    I was invited to test AVR assumedly by a member of the staff, in a reddit post on the /r/dirtgame subreddit (check it out if you haven't already had the pleasure) and decided to take it seriously and give this site a proper running through.

    This blog will act as a general dumping round for my thoughts on-and-off the track. I'll focus primarily on racing content, but who knows what the future holds?

    Anyway, welcome. Thanks for reading, and anticipate an actual post in the coming hours.

  9. End of my first practice session feeling like I have a solid set up for the car which I also think will make a good base for the rest of the tracks.

    Here is the fastest lap I was able to set... definitely should be able to make it under 1:37 with some more practice.

When adding images, click the link that says "Choose files". When they are uploaded, click the tiny little "+" sign thats over it, to put it inside the post. If you don't the images will show as attached files instead of being put inside the post.

    When an image is inside a post, double click it, to access its options. Here you can set the size, but also set alignment, so that it can be placed in the side of a text like this one.
