Those of you who read my posts know that I’m not one of those people who feels it necessary to praise iRacing every time they change a rim color just because I pay the fees and buy the content. I feel no need to justify the money I spend on iRacing.
The truth is, iRacing holds a monopoly in the sim racing world, so they can do as they please. They know that those who are sim racing enthusiasts are going to stick around and keep paying the fees and buying the content until something better comes along.
I’m the first one to say it’s a great racing simulator. I’m also the first one to say that their customer service and technical support is a nightmare.
I’m the first one to say it’s a great racing simulator. I’m also the first one to say that their customer service and technical support is a nightmare. If you don’t believe me, report a bug on their website and see what happens. It’s always your computer’s fault, not theirs. Even if you have the same issue on 3 different computers and 5 different browsers (yes, I have 5 different browsers installed).
Lately, iRacing has gone from pathetic to deplorable. iRacing performed its seasonal update for 2015 Season 4 on Wednesday, September 9. Their website was down for over nine (9) hours for that update. The website continued to go down again and again all day Wednesday and Thursday.
In the latest development, iRacing has disabled Lucas Oil Raceway indefinitely. The website says that it’s disable until their next update. What does that mean? 2015 Season 1? With no date specified in the post regarding Lucas Oil Raceway, it’s impossible to tell when the track might return.
I’v heard a lot of comments in sessions regarding the dynamic tracks. Nobody can find any evidence that they exist. I haven’t seen any darkening of the racing surfaces during longer sessions, nor have I seen any “marbles.” Apparently I’m not the only one who believes this may be another iRacing scam, because I keep hearing the same questions come up.
On a positive note, I like the new tire.
