iRacing is the world’s premier motorsport racing simulation. iRacing puts you in the driver’s seat by allowing members to experience today’s newest form of competitive motorsport: virtual racing. iRacing is a fun, inexpensive and highly-competitive way for race fans and gamers to break a sweat by braking hard at the apex, while overcoming head-to-head racing challenges usually reserved for professional racers.

If you enjoy iRacing on the PC and have anything to say regarding iRacing, post a reply below.

I know a couple guys that swear this is fun as hell but have never tried it.

Pretty sure I would have an aneurism trying to stay focused

iRacing is used by almost all NASCAR drivers for virtual testing. It’s about as realistic that a racing video game can get.

Its also expensive as hell.

I only pay $13 for an iRacing subscription per month. There's even cheaper options if you pay for a longer term.

What did it cost for the peripherals you use?

I have a beginner to mid range wheel and shifter, the Logitech G29 https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Dual-Motor-Feedback-Driving-Responsive/dp/B016JBE8LU?th=1. It more than gets the job done.

If your skills progress, i.e. you get into the Class A or even Professional level, you may consider a higher end wheel such as a FANATEC https://fanatec.com/us-en.

The only other item you need is a mid range gaming PC i5/Ryzen or up, monitor, and a gaming headset. This is the gaming headset I have for reference. https://www.amazon.com/Jeecoo-Heads...ords=gaming+headphones&qid=1613874155&sr=8-20

This is from a recent iRacing NASCAR truck race. I was running in first place, wrecked from behind, and then chased down by the same driver and wrecked again. Don't worry, the driver was reported :cool: .

My neighbor has a $40k set up. It's a car cage with four or five different monitors. Damn thing shakes if you hit the wall or wreck.

He's is the big races that pay money.

Pretty cool.
