NZiRL 6: Formula Cup

Graduating from the Skip Barber's, we shift our focus onto one of the global formula classes - the Dallara Formula 3! Raced in multiple countries, it is one of the stepping stones towards Formula 1, and has a lot of young and upcoming talent compete every year to make a name for themselves.

iRacing's Dallara F3 is one of the more popular open wheel road classes on the system, with good attendance each week and plenty of support within the community. Pairing our series up with part of the iRacing official series will give drivers wanting to further their open wheel career valuable seat time, as well as experience racing these cars in a field.

As of this season, we will be running our iRacing event's via the "League" system rather than the "Hosted Sessions" system. This has a lot of advantages over how we were running it. We are still setting this up, but once it is live, you will need to send a join request to our league in order to be accept and race.

To Join the league, you can find us either on the member website under leagues, or in the UI, under leagues, as "Kiwi Sim Racing". If that does not work, our League ID is 6915. You should then be able to apply for the league. If you are not accepted within 24 Hours, please message myself (Bull) as sometimes join requests do not come through.

Hey guys,

Is this joinable mid season?

I love me my single seaters... thought usually at the lower power end to go with my reaction speeds of an old fart! Keen to give the F3 Dallara a good crack!
