    Hi ovalists,

    Received a pm from Andy Loffler the other day with the question what the future of ARCA was within RD. To be honest in the staff we don't have anybody at the moment to setup events for ARCA.

    ARCA really struggled the last two years to get a full field of drivers. Big shame as the game is still big fun to race with a full field of drivers.

    In all honesty we don't really know how to proceed with ARCA at RD and we need your help.

    1) Are you still interested in racing this sim?
    2) Are you willing to help your fellow oval fans out?

    Let us know :)
     
  2. i still continue to be interested to this SIM
     
  3. 1) Are you still interested in racing this sim?

    Yes, i´m

    2) Are you willing to help your fellow oval fans out?

    Yes, i´m


    I would really love to have races here again on RD. But for sure it´s necessary to have steady field of drivers. It makes no sin to run events of 4-5 drivers over a longer time. So i hope some remember or find out this great racing like i did myself some month ago. To me it´s ever more interesting with a little series of races like a league then single events. Maybe that would bring the one or other back. And sure, in the window i can i´m willing to help to let it running.
    It´s in my own interest cause the races gives me still the most thrill - it´s close, unpredictable and exciting :D. Would be sad to miss this here at RD.l

  5. I quite like oval racing, and if there was to be some sort of regular setup i would definetly be in. iracing however i wont touch, it just costs too much money to keep up if you want to race, and compared to something like rfactor where content is free (even if it is less accurate) id prefer that.

    however, i think that the problem with Arca is that not many people actually have the game and play with it on a regular basis. a fair few of the people who have the game would not have it even installed currently on their computers. its dissapointing, as it is a good game. though, if there was interest in an rfactor based oval racing league, i reckon that due to the more widespread nature of rfactor full grids could be achieved. rfactor would have its own drawbacks, but i could see potential in regular full grids if this was to happen.
     
  6. R.I.P. Arca

    That would really the onliest thing why i´m interest in iracing. But it´s not in the basic content so i would have to pay every month, buy the car (probably more then one car) and all the tracks. Could be sure about 200$ the next year. I´m not ready to aid this kind of simracing. It seems R.I.P. ARCA here at RD :frown:. Here are just to less drivers and that after a few month this was talking

    I fire it up occasionally but unfortunately every time we setup a club event nobody seems interested in it.

    I think your right there.
     
  12. it's not Iracing killed ARCA, it's TSF killed their product with bad customers service and lack of update. i running 3 years with this sim and is not bad sim but if he having helped the europeans oval sim racers with santionned league and working fast for releasing truck and nationwide in a good time i'm sure the club here exist always.
     
  13. I still have ARCA... but to be honest oval racing with a grid size of less than 20 is a bore in my opinion....

    I love this sim however and would definitely be interested in joining anything or potentially help out the admins
