What makes a group of like minded sim racers become a real community?

John Hill offers a few ideas along with his own experience as part of iRacing's Lotus 79 Classic Team Championship series.

A virtual orgy of Lotus on Lotus violence wraps up this latest edition of "Over The Hill."

Inside info;  The crashes shown here are part of our hosted Monday morning Lotus 79 mini-races.  After we cross the finish line we aim for maximum damage.....on each other.  No IR or SR were harmed in the making of this video.

Since this video was filmed the Book and Hat have made their way into the hands of Ben Chadwick and here is a picture of him with the Lotus 79 CTC group's own version of the travelosity Gnome.

I love the way the guys at CTC take things so seriously.  It really adds to the realism of the sim and the racing.  And when the seaons ends to be part of the trophy celebration really puts it over the top for me.  The trophy going around remindsme of hockey and of how each of the players will get some time with the Stanley Cup.  Way to go CTC in leading the way on how it is to be done.    Great video John.

TP needs some updating. It is not very intuitive for new users. Instructions are hard to follow at times. Support response is in need of someone's dedication. Having individual paints is a real attraction within iRacing. This needs to be done better or replaced! â€‹Interesting that without member support there would be no answers or help. It's a shame, the program is so popular not to have good management.

I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?
