iRacing Rain Update – GT Podcast

iRacing Rain Update discussed on F-R Racing's Garage Tab

On this week’s episode of Garage Talk, Erik and D.J. discuss the long awaited iRacing rain update system known as “Tempest”. Erik and D.J. spent Tuesday evening testing out GT3 cars in heavy rains at Daytona. First observations are given along with the Indy Racing World Series race cancellation, Wednesday Night Dash at Texas Motor Speedway, and the latest in the soap opera known as Formula 1.

iRacing in the Rain, F1 Drama, WND at Texas, and NASCAR at Phoenix

We have a packed show this week starting with the long awaited release of the iRacing Tempest weather system (rain). We ran a test session earlier in the week from Daytona in heavy rain to experience what the driving was like and came away very impressed. The reviews so far have been largely positive and we’ll see how this impacts the endurance events moving forward.

Next we discuss Wednesday Night Dash visit to Texas Motor Speedway. Tire management played a major factor in the final results. D.J. talks about his “hug the line” strategy and braking into turn 1 that helped him while start slow, move up for a 4th place finish. Erik did one better and finished P3!

We moved on and discussed the soap opera that is Formula 1. What the heck is going on at Red Bull? Do we have a bigger scandal brewing? Will Max, Newey, and Marko actually leave if Christian Horner isn’t replaced? Reportedly Ford isn’t happy with the situation either and is exploring ending their agreement with Red Bull already.

‘Finally we close out with a discussion of D.J.’s upcoming weekend trip to Phoenix Raceway.
