12 posts in this topic

I am new to ISR, and while I hope to get to know many others here, I am looking to see how big of a community of seniors there are.

So, let's here from anyone out there who doesn't mind being referred to as a 'senior'...

For the record I am 66 and spend about 20 hours a week racing and working on Project Cars! Getting better faaaast!!!

ps: if there already is some sort of senior sim racing club or such out here, please let me know!!!

Thanks, everyone.....

Hey Skip,

I am also a "senior" 65 years old and love to race 5 to 6 hours a week.  It's nice to know that there are other kids my age out there enjoying this hobby.  I am NOT very good but enjoy racing and tinkering with all the settings and such.

Maybe we could start a 55 and over league sometime......

Hi Guys,

I am 60 here, race about 8 to 10 hrs maybe more depending on the "Honey Do List"!  I am mostly on iRacing now, trying to race clean and figure out which series to run to increase my license and be more competitive. I also have "Race Room" and "Assetto Corsa"

Years ago when I was racing Legends Cars in the real world I raced in the "Masters" division, (over 40), then "Golden Master", (over 50).  I guess it is time for "Silver Masters".  Just remember, It may be gray but at least I have hair!

 Skip, I have raced on various racing games somewhat over the years but have recently purchased a Thrustmaster TX Leather racing wheel and pedals and a TH8A shifter that I have modified.  Also have a new cockpit ordered that should arrive on November 1 with a triple monitor stand.  Will be buying a brake load cell for my pedals soon, as well.  Also doing some research on a Buttshaker system for my new cockpit and a hope to add a real racing wheel setup to my wheel base next year.
