iRacing 101: The iRacing Driving School

Welcome to iRacing 101, where each week we’ll go through some of the many features that make iRacing the World’s Premier Motorsport Simulation. From highlighting our features to some of the top series and forms of racing you’ll encounter when you get behind the wheel.

This week’s topic: What is the iRacing Driving School?

Whether you’re a newcomer to iRacing or you’ve been around the block a few times, the iRacing Driving School is a useful tool for all iRacers to review what it takes to get on track:

The playlist is broken down into the following chapters, some of which have multiple segments:

  • An introduction to iRacing itself, and what you’ll learn in these videos
  • A discussion of vehicle dynamics
  • Fundamentals of the racing line and cornering
  • Using your eyes on the track
  • Braking techniques to get the most out of each corner
  • Downshifting
  • Racecraft and passing
  • Race starts and surviving the first turn
  • Pre-race checklists and types of racing
  • Racing in the rain and how to adjust your driving
  • Types of racing and licenses on iRacing

These videos have been newly updated for 2024 to reflect a more current iRacing experience, including our latest car and track content and other evolutions in real-world motorsport.
