It’s Week 13 time again in the iRacing world. Week 13 gives iRacers from Rookie to Class B a final opportunity to advance to the next license level for next season. In my experience, and from what I’ve read, it’s more often a good time to lose iRating and safety rating.
For this Week 13, iRacing brought in iRacer and NHRA racer Ron Capps to select a couple of the official series. To mark the debut of the iRacing.com Celebrity Challenge, Ron came up with the following:
- Silver Crown cars at Dover International Speedway
- Cadillac CTS-V cars at Brands Hatch
There’s nothing here for us short track stock car guys, but the winner of each series will receive a Ron Capps die-cast model. Pro and WDC driver aren’t eligible for this series.
If you don’t care for that, the Legends are always there with somebody racing them. The Legends tour consists of these stops:
- Okayama Long and Short
- Charlotte Road Course
- Laguna Seca
- Lime Rock
- Okayama Long and Short again
- Summit Point
Nothing there for a short track stock car guy either.
And if you like good racing, good tracks, and good cars, there are the Street Stocks. They’ll be visiting:
- Charlotte Legends Oval
- Charlotte Oval
- Oxford Plains
- South Boston
- USA International Speedway
All of these are official series and safety ratings and iRatings are in effect, so be careful. Be very, very careful.
If you’d prefer unofficial series, then you have these to choose from:
- Carburetor Cup at Talladega Super Speedway
- Lotus 49 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (Mosport)
- Several versions of the 24 Hours of Fun including the Radical SR8 (does the SR stand for safety rating?) at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and the Dallara IndyCar at Charlotte, Interlagos, Laguna Seca and Rockingham.
- Mazda MX-5 Cup, Pontiac Solstice, and VW Jetta TDi.
Lastly, it’s week 18 of the NASCAR iRacing series. The Gen6 cars will compete at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Friday through Sunday.
