I have heard sim racers ask themselves and even other racers, when they should move on to iRacing. They are concerned that they are not good enough, they don't feel confident or don't have the experience they believe iRacing needs or even deserves. Is iRacing for you? The first question you need to ask your… Continue reading When to change to iRacing
I'm going to share a short post about my thoughts when it comes to tracking your performance on iRacing. I see and hear a lot of people focusing so much on their iRating, that they are not having fun. But iRating is just one side of a more complicated value. Should you be confusing on… Continue reading iRacing Progression
The difference between iRating and Safety Rating is pretty straight forward. But how do you use it? For me, it is just a tool that tells me how i'm doing and not a goal in itself
Throughout the couple of years that I have raced on the console, I have always had a mixed feeling of admiration and jealousy for the people racing on a wheel. It was clear that racing-games are meant to be raced with a racing wheel, and I felt that racing with the controller, although it felt… Continue reading Logitech G920 – How hard can it be?

What is new for me, through iRacing, is that now i can measure my performance, and compare against others in a different way than i could before. I used to race random… Continue reading Focus Reset
One thing i can tell you for sure, after getting older, wiser and more experienced, is that I am getting more and more critical, cynical and pessimistic. Especially when it comes to politics, and economies. This is also why i may be drifting off the bulls eye of the target audience for most sim racing… Continue reading 5 Steps to Sim Shop Smarter
I started racing seriously, on Forza. It's not that i am ashamed to admit it, but looking back, I took it way more seriously than it deserved. Back then, a setup, or tune, would more or less change your car to feel anything between a beach buggy or a drag racer. This made it critical… Continue reading Don’t blame it on the Setup
The past couple of months, have been very intense for me, because i have been walking around with a growing urge to upgrade my monitor. For the past 3 years that i have been racing online, i have used an old LED TV, that run 1080p. It broke after a couple of years, and i… Continue reading To VR or not VR
