Please Note: You will also need to sign up to the iRacing League Page here in order to complete your registration. This form allows leage administrators and broadcasters to prepare for the series, however you can not race until after you have been accepted on the league page.

The most realistic Indy 500 in Sim Racing is back for a 4th year! 2013 saw Yang Ou make it back to back victories in the event, continuing his form at the world’s greatest racetrack. In order for him to make it three in a row however, he’ll first have to survive the toughest qualification process out there, and then, 200 laps of intense racing at speeds over 230 MPH. 33 drivers will start, only one will have the privilege of being called ISOWC Indy 500 champion.
Registering For The Event
To register for the event, you will have to complete two processes. First, you need to sign uphere, regardless of if you are signed up for the overall league. You will be asked if you would like to sign up for the ‘Morning’, ‘Afternoon’ or ‘Friday’ qualifying session for Pole Dat , and we need to know that to get the running order together. More details of this can be found below.
Secondly, we need you to sign up to the following league: http://members.iracing.com/membersite/member/LeagueView.do?league=1194 . ALL official sessions will be run through this league, and you won’t be able to join until you’ve been accepted into the league!
You need to have a D4.0+ Safety Rating by the time Qualifying starts. We put this out just so that we have a benchmark, and this seems reasonable. You are still allowed to register if you haven’t met this criteria, however you won’t be allowed to qualify if you haven’t hit the number.
As has been the case for each of the previous running’s of the event, we will of course be broadcasting the race, on RaceSpot TV. We’ll be on air from 3:30PM GMT with full build up of the event, pre race ceremonies, the entire 500 mile race, and of course, the interview with the winner. In addition to our race coverage, the ever popular qualifying live text feed will be back, PLUS, we’ll be providing coverage of happy hour on Pole Day and Bump day, AND the Fast 9 shootout! This is the most coverage ever given to the event, and it’s in response to the amazing reception we have had in previous years.
If you are interested in sponsoring the event, please drop me a line.
Each year, in place of a title sponsor, we use the event to recognise a charity / orgonisation doing great work around the world. We are pleased to announce that this year’s partner will be [b]Orphan Secure[/b], an NGO specializing in countering child sex trafficking. Since 2010, Orphan Secure has worked with international law enforcement agencies and other NGOs to identify and rescue victims of human trafficking and more specifically, child sex trafficking.
You can find out more about Orphan Secure at the following link: http://www.orphansecure.com/orphan_secure_about_us.php
We’re working on this; please hold the line!
This is one of the most complicated events I run every year, but by far the most fun. Seeing 33 cars take the green, in 11 rows of 3 is a special moment for me, and I hope you’ll once again enjoy it as much as I do. All I ask is that you remain patient if (And when) things go a little bit of schedule, as I promise, I’ll be working my butt off to get things moving.
If you take any pleasure from the event, please consider buying me some coffee!
