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.

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!

Okay 20 minutes is too short. Make the races an hour. Can you make it w/o pitting? I don't know, but with or w/o pitting it would be fun.

Thanks for the breakdown of your driving next to the best of your race. This comparison was an eye opener to how I should be driving compared to how I am actually driving.  You keep referring to trail breaking I'm relatively new to this new IRacing,(was an original owner of the first Nascar and had spend hours upon hours doing it.)  And I just don't get how it helps or hurts your racing style, I'll keep watching thanks for the video's and keep going fast.
