WFG - Is it worth joining iRacing

4 posts in this topic

It's really tempting to join iRacing now with the wfg promo and this suites me because I want to race competitive, but after the event can you keep racing with the MP4-30 and buy the rest of the tracks needed to run the championship or you have to go through the license progression and race in the lower classes?

Stealing an old post, but the concept should still work:  Dustin Midyett on racedepartment

  1. This is the cheapest way to progress through iRacing

    - Use a rookie car to get to a R4.0 level (which is an automatic promotion to Class D)
    - Now, continue to use the Rookie car to get to a D4.0
    - Purchase a Class C vehicle and race it until you get to a C4.0 level (which is an automatic promotion to Class B (the C car will fulfill the D MPR and the C MPR both)
    - Now, continue to use the Class C vehicle to get to a B4.0
    - Voila, purchase the Class A car and go racin! (the A car will fulfill the B MPR)

    Using this [track], you only have to purchase two cars, the Class C and the Class A. You will, however, still need to purchase some tracks for the C and A to race on but you will spend far less than if you took a more traditional route (assuming your goal is to eventually race the Class A.)

    That said, there have been many arguments against this method simply because you don't get as much experience moving up through the ranks. But, if you're on a budget and want to race the Class A car, it's the best way to go.
