Class D the real rookie class ?

Discussion in 'iRacing' started by Kevin McDonald, Mar 19, 2013.

  1. In the eight months or so that I've been on iRacing I spent the first 5 months of it in the rookie class although I must admit I had never driven a proper sim until then. Now I'm in class D and just about to move to class C and have noticed a few things.

    In the rookie series, there is a lot of people who simply pull of to the side at the start and let everybody through and if you happen to come up against them in the race they will simply pull over and let you past. Although this will drastically reduce the amount of crashes I feel that the incidents I had in my first month taught me a lot about race-craft and improved my driving significantly.

    This got me wondering, what are these guys who just let everyone past actually learning and as soon as they get in to class D they will most likely be involved in multiple incidents as the races are just filled with guys who have little to no experience of racing.

    To me, this just defeats the purpose of a rookie class. What are you guys thoughts ?
  2. I haven't met with such guys. But I assume they're after safety rating and nothing else.
  3. The ironic thing is, when I search their names to see how they are getting on, most of them are still rookie :roflmao:

    I did the same in my first days. Just avoid the crap and play safe and within a weekend I was at A license and the fun really starts.
  5. It is usually much better in the top split, especially one with a high iRating average.

    I'm talking about the Skippy which is a D class car.
