I think you'll enjoy it since they have racing leagues and everything. It sounds like it can get pretty competitive.
Just make sure you have a decent steering wheel and pedals that are calibrated nicely and you should have a blast.

Great info. I appreciate it. Strongly considering checking it out for a month or two.

I did some contract work with iRacing.com. I know they have a lot more cars and tracks than when I worked with them about a year and a half ago.
It's very impressive. The driving dynamics are as close to spot on as you could be and you can truly use this simulator as a way to practice a track before you get there. They actually go out to the tracks and laser scan every millimeter of the surface so all of this translates into the simulator.
It takes a little getting used to as you are missing the "seat of the pants" feeling of speed so you dont realize you are going as fast as you are. So you are going to overshoot corners from braking way too late.
Having driven lime rock park in real life and on the simulator it is as close to perfect as could be at this point. It is really cool since you can actually use specific points of reference on the track just as you would in real life.
Basically think of this on the level of a flight simulator and not a video game. It is simulated motorsport at it's best.

The reason most people hate puns is because they didn't think of it first!

Not sure if this should go in the gaming section, but given the application, I thought I would post it here.
Does anyone have experience with i-racing?
From the web site http://www.iracing.com
It does require a wheel and pedal set up. Membership is $13 per month.
I was thinking about it, but wanted to see if anyone else had experience with it.
