Overview

iRacing is an online-based racing game that consists of a persistent online service that hosts ongoing competitive series in which members race to improve their standing, better their skills and achieve higher and higher classes of licenses. The online league and standings operate in many ways like a racing MMO; players climb the ranks and improve skills to compete in bigger, faster races. New players begin as rookie drivers and can advance to bigger races by performing well enough to raise their license grade.

Game requires a constant internet connection and there is no AI or offline racing available. Pricing model includes monthly subscription which comes with 7 cars and 10 tracks. Additional cars and tracks can be purchased individually.

Modes

Testing: Take to the tracks you own with any of the rides you own to do some single-car testing in which you can tweak the setups and practice the racing line. Unlimited time limit.

Open Practice: Take to the track in a open session of practice in which you can run out on track with your fellow iRacers online. All sessions are timed.

Time Trials: Take to the track and see if you can lay down consistent laps around the circuit of your choice. Users must lay down 3-10 consecutive "clean" laps in order for the session results to become official. It's a race against the clock and track itself!

Qualifying: Hit the track and lay down several fast laps in order to qualify for an official or unofficial iRacing-hosted race event. Your best time will determine your grid position for rest of the week.

Race: Take to the track against a field of fellow iRacers as the green flag waves in both official and unofficial series races! Based on your performance in the race, your iRating for your current license rank will be affected by your actions on track in official races. Drive a clean race, and your ratings will increase. Get involved in accidents or driving dirty will see your ratings drop as a result of your actions. Unofficial races (such as Carb Cup) do not have an impact on your iRating but the Sporting Code is still in effect, so keep it clean!

License Classes

When you first start out on iRacing, you will be given a Rookie Class license for both the iRacing Oval and Road Divisions. Each Rookie Class license starts off with a Safety Rating of 2.50 and an iRating of 1600. To advance up the ranks, you must advance your Safety Rating to 3.0 or higher along with meeting the special MPR requirements in order to be promoted to the next license class. The ranking system is listed below (from lowest to highest):

  • Rookie Class (Red)
  • Class D License (Orange)
  • Class C License (Yellow)
  • Class B License (Green)
  • Class A License (Blue)
  • Pro Class License (Black)
  • Driver's World Championship License (Black)
