Sim Racing Observer Announces Hall of Fame!

We here at the Sim Racing Observer have decided to announce today the creation of the Sim Racing Observer Hall of Fame. At current, we shall have the hall of fame open to iRacing at this time due to our lack of knowledge in other areas however if and when we get the personnel to competently cover those areas, we will consider expanding our hall of fame.

Simracing struggles at times to reward itself. All of the achievements that have been celebrated sometimes fail to get recognised, and we think that is wrong. Simracing needs to respect those who have shaped it’s past so that we can use that as a foundation to move forward. That is what we want to commemorate moving forward, the men and women who have been at the forefront, breaking down barriers and pushing us to continued success.

It is with this that the Sim Racing Observer has decided to create the Hall of Fame, to reward all of those who have got us to this point. For our inaugural inductions, we will be selecting three people to be added to the hall of fame which we will be announcing at some stage in August this year. Make sure you keep up to date with any updates on the hall of fame.

We here at the Sim Racing Observer want to see simracing flourish into an industry that can make millions watch in awe at sensational battles, shrewd strategy and sublime storylines. This is our future to work with, and we would all love to see simracing featured in a prominent role in esports. Its time to go make that happen, and it is time to honour those who have helped us get this far.

iRacing 12 Hours of Sebring Falls Behind Closed Doors: No iRanking Points

For the third time in fourteen months, an iRacing World Tour event has failed to see through the entirety of a broadcast, falling behind closed doors for the finish of the event last night. In light of the news breaking, the Sim Racing Observer has elected not to offer any iRanking points for the event in fairness to all of the drivers and teams involved.

There is a lot of confusion as to what the issue is that has plagued the Sebring event with some claiming the issue only affected those with lower end CPU’s while others claim the issue is a sound bug that causes the game to crash. In any event, we can determine that most of the issues with the event were on the client side, making a change from server issues.

Sim Racing Observer Partners With V8SCOPS For 2018

The Sim Racing Observer has officially partnered with the V8 Supercar Online Premier Series for 2018, producing pre-race, post-race and insightful articles into the world of V8 Supercars on iRacing.

V8SCOPS has shown incredible potential in 2018, partnering with the fabled Virtual Racing School this year which has allowed them to access a platform of viewership numbers which exceeded the first round of the NASCAR Peak Antifreeze Series in overall impressions.

The Sim Racing Observer will become the official media partners for 2018, and will enjoy some of the strongest battles in one of the strongest leagues in the world in terms of both iRating and overall pace.

The deal with V8SCOPS does not affect our impartiality with the iRankings as the criteria to weight the V8SCOPS series or any series does not have any correlation with deals with the Sim Racing Observer.

All of us here at the Sim Racing Observer would like to wish all of the drivers and teams the best of luck and thank all of the staff behind V8SCOPS for the opportunity to partner together.
