iRacing 101: Your first online race

iRacing is an incredibly realistic and exciting online racing platform. If you’re interested in doing your first race, read on for our tips.

Choose a race and plan ahead

Before starting, it is important to select a race and plan your time in advance as races are scheduled at specific times. For example the Mazda Cup Race sessions are held every hour.

To register, choose a race time and wait for the race session to begin. You have the opportunity to ride in an ongoing training session in the meantime. This is a great opportunity to get familiar with the circuit and improve your skills.

Participate in qualifying

When it’s time to race, you’ll be automatically placed on the track. You will participate in a short practice session that everyone participates in. Once the time is up, you will be included in your qualifying session.

In qualifying you drive timed laps. Your fastest lap time determines your position on the grid. If you choose not to qualify, you will be placed at the bottom of the starting grid. After the qualifying session is over, click the green grid button to go to your starting position.

Prepare your car for launch

Depending on the type of race, there will be different types of starts. For standing starts, wait for the green light to appear and just start your race. With rolling starts, follow the pace car for a lap or two before the race begins. Your spotter will tell you who to follow. Overtaking is prohibited during the speed laps. Once the pace car pulls away, wait for the green light to appear and start your race.

Concentrate on driving consistent and clean laps

While it’s tempting to be on the top step of the podium in the first race, it’s important to remember that iRacing is a highly competitive virtual sport. Climbing the ranks is hard work that takes practice and dedication. So instead of focusing on the bottom line, focus on driving consistent and clean laps. This will help you improve your skills and prepare for future races.

Do not give up

If you don’t get the result you hoped for in your first race, don’t be discouraged. We all start somewhere and it’s normal to have ups and downs along the way. Keep practicing and learning, and you’ll soon see improvements in your performance.

We hope this guide has helped you understand how to start your first race on iRacing. Good luck on the track!
