iRacing has the iRating system which works very well in terms of pitting similar talents against each other however there are naturally some gaps with the way iRating is calculated. The iRankings will become a new method of accurately representing some of the best simracing talents in the world. Continue reading “iRankings: The Brand New System Of Excellence”
