UPDATE 6/5: I have done some testing with cars and here are some potential event ideas. They are listed as “Track (config)- Car(s) - Race Duration”
This past weekend, Team Oppo was back on track at the world’s center of racing for the iRacing Indy 500 in the HondaBro Shitpost Special. Keep reading to see how we did. Hint: We didn’t finish last!
Here it is, the Team Oppo Indycar for the 2017 iRacing Indy 500. There is still a lot of setup work to do, but it is finally time to take of the cover of the test mule. Look for it to grace the Brickyard this weekend.
Every May the racing world descends onto the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, and it is no different in the virtual world.
Last Sunday (4/23/17), Team Oppo hosted the Team Oppo Miata Challenge. Our goal was to get 60 cars on the Lime Rock Park Circuit. Four times as many cars as normally seen on the Lime Rock Park circuit during iRacing official Rookie Miata races. This race was also three times longer than the Rookie races. With fuel…
We have delayed the race until 4PM EDT. The race server is now open to everyone to come in and practice. It is first come-first serve.
We are now under 24 Hours until the iRacing Oppo Miata Challenge. Welcome to the pre-race post. This post is geared to help you toward strategy and letting you know what to expect from the race.
Please make note of the changes at the bottom of the page. If you need some help with strategy consult this post.
Greetings Opponauts, the time has finally come to announce our first ever Team Oppo hosted iRacing event. This race will feature up to 62 Global MX-5 cup cars for 90 minutes of racing on the Lime Rock Park circuit. Here are the event details...
Yesterday iRacing released dirt. Starting out as an April Fool’s joke that wasn’t. iRacing recreated an entire segment of racing that hasn’t been well simulated (first party) for many years*.
Feedback Request (4/6/17): Race Length 1.5 or 2 Hours? Also I am thinking about creating 2 classes (Pro and Am) set by iRatings, let me know your thoughts and the numbers. I contemplated putting the Ams in the 2015 Miata, but that just complicated things.
Due to a couple last minute personal commitments by several of our drivers, Team Oppo will have to sit out the 12 Hours of Sebring.
Update (3/8/17): Unfortunately due to some last minute personal commitments, Team Oppo has decided to sit out from the 12 Hours of Sebring.
After a change of plans and minutes of thought, Team Oppo decided to enter the iRacing Daytona 500.
Greetings Team Opponauts, I am trying to think of ways to get Team Oppo more involved.
Team Oppo took to the track again this week. This time for a little shootout at Daytona. This was part of the Official A Fixed Setup Series that I have been running for the past 12 weeks. I found this scheme hiding in my paint files and decided to bring it out for Team Oppo.
Team Oppo looks to put itself on the grid at the 12 Hours of Sebring iRacing endurance race. This is race #2 of the iRacing endurance schedule.
This excellent video recently posted by the V8 Supercar Online Premier Series shows how you can ascend the iRacing ladder and join their league. It is a great outline for those wanting to race with Team Oppo as the license path is the same for official endurance races.
Have you ever wanted to drive a racecar in your underpants?
So you want to be the next virtual Shane Van Ginsburge
rn? Lucky for you, the road is not that long. However, you will need to get use to racing on Austrailian time. If you don’t want to adjust your life to those down under, there are a couple of American series out there.
