Default Announcing the PCA Sim Racing series

For the first time, Porsche Club of America members can race door-to-door with fellow PCA members in the first officially sanctioned PCA National iRacing simulation racing series. This simulated online racing series is exclusively for PCA primary members, co-members, and PCA Juniors in good standing. Registration will open February 1, 2019 at 12 PM EST. Sign up at http://www.pcasimracing.org

https://youtu.be/mFXQtsf_5L0

The eight-race series is specifically geared toward PCA members with PC-based sim racing experience, particularly in iRacing. The top 60 fastest and safest drivers will have exclusive access to race with fellow PCA members on eight iconic North American race tracks. The top 30 qualifiers for each event will go on to race in a 45-minute live broadcasted event including two commentators, graphical display of the race running order, racers' names and even the racers' PCA Region logos. The entire series will be professionally hosted and broadcast by Podium eSports, LLC on the iRacing eSports Network. Racers who qualify 31-60 will race in a separate 45-minute race with published results.

The top-three finishers in the championship series will not only have National PCA bragging rights, but amazing awards as well. The Porsche Club of America Sim Racing series has been created to emulate the PCA Club Racing program by racing on the same tracks, in the same cars as the PCA Club Racing GTC7 class.

That was interesting to watch! Our local guy did (unsurprisingly) well, even in a 911. A very nice improvement over a decent starting spot.

Yep, it's like everything else in racing though. Talent can only get you so far. I'm sure some of these guys are sitting down in front of $10K worth of simulation equipment with fancy force feedback, 200 degree field of view multi-monitors, graphics cards that cost as much as our whole computer, etc. He does pretty well for low budget....

Oh... you meant Sim Racing! Certainly no parallels to real life...
