iRacing Blinking and Recap – GT Podcast

F-R Racing's Garage Talk iRacing Podcast Logo

Erik and D.J. are back this week talking about iRacing blinking and what it is, how it impacts your sessions on iRacing, and where you draw the line with someone blinking excessively. (Spoiler: We don’t come to a conclusion).

Bahrain F1, Indy St Pete, NASCAR Vegas, and iRacing Blinking

A busy weekend in motorsports as Formula 1 returned with a snooze fest in Bahrain, IndyCar had an exciting event in St Petersburg, and William Byron came out on top in Las Vegas.  We talk about the importance of sponsors like HyVee to the IndyCar series despite not understanding why a regional chain store would spend so much time and effort to become nationally known.

Next, we discuss the concept of “blinking” inside iRacing and what it is.  For those that don’t know, blinking usually occurs when someone is on a lousy internet connection or their PC resources are maxed out during a race that their car “blinks”.  iRacing is pretty vague on the rules regarding proper etiquette so it comes down to a case-by-case basis and leagues set their own rules.  That being said, what is a fair rule?  We discuss and don’t come to a conclusion, but it is a good discussion.

Finally, in the video version, D.J. shows off his new toy from Extreme Sim Racing, so check that out.
