iRacing beginners group?

Just fired up the sim rig with a fresh iRacing subscription. Bought the M4 gt3 and some tracks.

Read a few getting started tips and been doing some Ai racing. If anyone else has a beginners league or tips would love to get some racing going.

Can create a discord server or join one if anyone uses it already.

Haha yea same here on memorizing the tracks. i purchased tracks i know from Pcars and AC but doing consistent laps is so difficult. The penalty system is brutal but lifelike so have to get the flow of it.

Definitely different experience from having friends on comms to talk shit to

If you're a novice you'll start out racing the MX5 series. VRS publishes free track guides, tutorials, data each week for that series

i seem to find the MR cars more stable (Ferrari), also RR (Porsche GT3), but i'm no speed demon.

the Merc is a handful!

tho' not in iRacing I didn't buy anything, i drive on AC ACC and rF2

I'm fairly new to sim racing (1 month) and I have purchased a wheel and pedals along with a VR headset and a few simulators along with Iracing and some content. Are there any EU or US beginners groups that I could join to help me learn and race with others?
