Running in a league or racing series for points over a long period of time can be a daunting task at times.  In this series of videos we will take on the GT3 Challenge series in iRacing.  This is a 12 week racing season that points will be scored for each week.  In these videos I will show you some of the racing action, but more importantly, I will look for the lessons to be learned from each week.  Hopefully these experiences will help you in your quest for higher rankings or even championships.

I really enjoyed the first video in this series.  I wish you could have continued it.  While I do love the hardware reviews and looks, I also enjoy videos like this one a great deal.  It provides a good mix on the site if there were more like this.  Even if its just a raw stream of some weekly race that you upload to YouTube like other guys do with their Twitch streams.

Thank you for your comments Bobby.  One thing that is very important to me with The Simpit is having a great amount of diversity.  I will make sure to bring back this segment with more like it.  I am very glad that you enjoyed it.

More league racing like this.
Love the compact format - where you show highlights during the race, and issues around the run.
Can you do this for each week in the series please?

I hear ya! I am running COTA in the Ruf Track right now, and have a horrible case of turn 11 spins after about 4 or 5 laps.  heheh.  And I was just getting the hang of it last week too!  I guess COTA is a whole different beast!

That is a Thrustmaster MFC Display.  It is actually made for Flight Sim.

Please do a review on the MFD - I am looking at the Lilliput or Mimo monitors 7" - and just thinking about getting a glass MFD setup that I could use in A-10, Arma and iRacing.

Hi Shaun,I was wondering if you could do a review on your Thrustmaster MFC Display and how it goes as a racing Display/Button box.

Thanks Mark.

Nice video, Shaun. I'm just getting back to it after a baby-induced layoff, so a lot of these points are super relevant to me right now.

I will be doing many pieces like this one in the future.  Future pieces will go beyond this topic ans situation and over time really find all of the mistakes we sim racers tend to make.

I was in a lower split and had the, now usual, iracing problems joining and when I finally joined, I had missed the start.

Qualified in 4th and the 3rd place qualifier had the same problem.  So from starting from the pits, we worked out way past the wrecks and worked together to make as many positions as possible.  We finished 7 seconds off 1st place in 2nd and 3rd (me).  

Happy with that result considering the mess getting into the session.

Nicely done.  It seems to always be a little crazy in the GT3 series.

TP needs some updating. It is not very intuitive for new users. Instructions are hard to follow at times. Support response is in need of someone's dedication. Having individual paints is a real attraction within iRacing. This needs to be done better or replaced! â€‹Interesting that without member support there would be no answers or help. It's a shame, the program is so popular not to have good management.

I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?
