There are a bunch of free tracks I’ve never driven in iRacing. Every few days I’m going to drive one with zero preparation and then post the fastest lap time here. That’s the delta time. Your mission, should you accept it, is to beat it (and then call me names in the comment section).
Here are the rules.
- Global Mazda MX-5 Cup, baseline setup
- Default Weather (78F, 2 MPH N, 55%, afternoon)
- 30 minutes or 20 laps, whichever comes first
[Legacy ] Pocono Raceway 2009 South
20 laps came up too soon as I was really trying to break 50 seconds. Why is any specific time meaningful? And why is breaking 50 more important than 50.2 or whatever? I don’t know, but it is. I guess we like full seconds? My optimal lap was in the 49s, so I knew I could do it, but in the end, I had to end my session at 20 laps as per the rules.
Delta = 50.291
The South configuration is a lot better than North, but it’s still not that interesting. The oval part is better and the interior is better. But it all adds up to meh.
In this section I’m ranking the tracks in the order of my preference. I tend to like technical tracks with some elevation, short straights, and corners that are blind, off camber, decreasing radius, and connected.
