3000 iRating

Yesterday I had the opportunity to run a whole stack of races in the Production Car Challenge and Grand Touring Cup. Good results in all my races resulted in me completing my little "how quickly can I get from 1350 to 3000 iRating". The answer was 50 races.

The most enjoyable part of yesterday's races was that in 3 of them I had very tight, very clean, very exciting battles for the lead. For the majority of races in the 50 I've run during this experiment I've basically been running time trials. Most of the time I've just been lapping out in the lead on my own and the only "excitement" has come when people I'm lapping do stupid things.

Now that I've climbed my way back up to where I believe my skill level is I'll probably start running more MX5 Cup races and will find myself in more tight battles.

D Class Challenge Stats

I'm attempting to answer the question of "how long would it take me to get from 1350 iRating to 3000 iRating?" I'm running only D class events, mostly focusing on my pet series; Production Car Challenge. I've sprinkled in a few races from other series, most recently running the Solstice around Bathurst in the Grand Touring Cup.
