NZiRL 5: Skippy Showdown

Post by Bull » Wed Mar 03, 2021 6:36 pm


Skip Barber III founded the Skip Barber Driving School in 1975, aiming to show that driving was coachable like any other sport. Originally starting with only 2 Lola based Formula Fords, the driving school grew leaps and bounds and even spawned it's very own 'Pro Series' for 16 years.

iRacing has captured this car and the ideology behind its existence, bringing into their platform as not only a great car to start off in, but a car that proves to be something anyone can race at any point in their career to further hone their race craft, speed, abilities and any other particular driving skill.

We will be running this series coinciding with iRacing's 2021 Season 2 Official Track Schedule - this means that each week we race this series, it will be ran on the same track that is used in the official iRacing season - so if you want to get max mileage and value out of this car, you will be able to race it all week in a populated session before/after racing in this series.

This will also be our first iRacing series to feature a drop week format for the points standings.

Oh - and we have two $20 iRacing Gift Cards up for grabs!
