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
Tsukuba Circuit 2000 Short
This circuit isn’t 100% new to me, as I did drive for 30 minutes on the 2000 Full configuration about 2 months ago. The Short configuration cuts the longest straight roughly in half. I happen to like short tracks, so I expected this to be better.
Delta = 49.761
This is a really good track that is difficult to master. What could possibly be better than driving 80s and 90s cars around this circuit like they do in the Best Motoring videos? Well, too bad iRacing doesn’t have any. Inte-R FTW!
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.
