    WOW! It feels great. iRacing has been a great experience. There is a good community involved who love to help fellow racers out (like here!).

    After three months of practicing, racing, and growing more confident I finally got a win in the Spec Racer Ford series. True, it was third split so I was not racing against aliens but it still feels great! :)

    Congratulations! I think win in 3rd split is very good. I know I myself will never be an alien, but enjoy every time I pass the finnishline after a clean race, no matter what split or place I'm in.

    Well done Historiker, the iRacing series looks very well run. Must try it out.

    Thanks Bruce, I have won a couple since then but the first always makes you feel great. I hope to get back into iRacing soon, we almost have all of the drywall finished and are getting ready to paint. As soon as the new house is complete I can game again (wife promises, lol).

    Great to hear! It really is a good feeling.

    I have just gotten back into iRacing now that the house is done. Instead of rejoining the Spec Racer Ford series I am trying my hand (and feet) at the RUF cup instead. Feels like I may never get another win ;)

    Do you enjoy iRacing more versus something like rFactor? What is it about iRacing that appeals to you? And congrats on the win!!
