I've been wondering about starting iRacing over again, although I can't say that I dug myself so deep into it last time, I'm getting more and more hooked on, despite the bad comments about tire model and the RUF, it still interests me at some point. The thing mostly brining me back is that you can get quality "pick-up" racing at any point of the day. In other sims you really have to be dedicated to scheduled leagues and not even be sure about getting decent head-to head racing.
How much does it cost to build up a sort of Road "Career"? I'm mostly into GT racing, so I would of course love to participate in one of those leagues. I'm especially interested about the cars and tracks needed to run the season and have most out of it. Every time I think about it, it's the excessive ammoun of money needed to spend on content if I wanted to take it one bit serious. Can someone sum me up the costs of it?
P.S: I'm not sure if I left at C or D, if you have an active subscription, do you mind checking it for me? Thanks
Haven't played in a while, but my number 1 beef with iRacing on the road side was course selection. I felt like every time I purchased a track, it was only good for 2-3 weeks a season (and I had a lot of cars) and then the next season it would be even less useful because new tracks would be added that got priority placement over the old tracks. I wish there was a way they could add more tracks in one season so that I could actually drive the ones I own.
Brands is far and away my favourite track but it hardly ever gets used, and when it does get used it's hardly driven. Probably because it's old school, narrow and difficult with no run-off, but that's what I love. It's fantastic this week in the Porsche.
Great track to lap on, but the racing isn't that great with it. Zandvoort, like Brands and other smaller tracks, are not ones to be in each and every season, especially every series. As an "entry" into the series, it isn't the purchase you want to make. In the future, however, I see no problems at all purchasing the track.
Thanks for clearing it up. I was indeed looking for the most important tracks to begin with as someone who wants to get one bit serious about the simulator. I guess I'm preparing my bank account and then I'll get the subscription next week, cause I have no time at this point for stuff like this.
