    OK so in my 2nd ever race on iRacing in rookies MX 5 i qualified 2nd out of 12 and at the start i went on the red lights!! I blame all other racing games for that!

    So what is he sequence as the first race i simply moved when the guys in front did but on the front row i panicked and went on red... so had a stop go that lasted for like a day....
    still came 5th though...

    haha, nice one. red lights come on, everyone starts to rev up a little (in gear 0), red lights go off gear in and off you go. A false start is not uncommon, though. The better players use handbrake to get the best possible start, i'm too dumb for that and get passed by a chap or two, but hey - all in a day's work.

    I put it in first gear with the clutch in, a button map would suffice. When the lights go green drop the clutch and hold on tight...
