Let me preface that I am an iRacing member and I am quite happy there. I am currently racing teh star mazda season. However, I would like to start racing outside iRacing as well. I own all the Simbin Games as well as rFactor and NetKar Pro. I should also say I am a road racer and the ovals at iRacing are quite enough for me. The reason I would like to race elsewhere is the different cars and tracks available. Not that iracing really lacks in that respect, but it is missing some tracks I really enjoy, and variety is the spice of life anyway I am already registered and licensed here, except that beyond that I find it a bit obscure how to join a league and go racing once those steps are taken. But most importantly, I don;t want to get in over my head. I would prefer to start in a beginner league, learn the etiquette (and make sure my rig is all set up) and do some practice races to make sure I get the hang of it. Things that worry me at the moment are: Joining too hard a league Joining a league with not too serious people or where egos run rampant Making a fool of myself and find myself racing above my abilities. Given all this and the fact that I can race only on weekends and evenings in California time (PST), what would the best league be for me and on what platform? Thank you very much for your help.
