Have you ever wanted to drive a racecar in your underpants?
Team Oppo is looking for members. This is an Opposite Lock/Digital Burnouts based iRacing team focused on official iRacing endurance races. An official iRacing Team has been created as well as a Discord. Soon a Kinja sub blog will exist for Team based communications and stories, which will be shared to Oppo of course.
You do not need any special qualifications to join Team Oppo. Just have an iRacing account, an interest in racing with a group, and sign up.
After you sign up, you will be sent a request to join the official iRacing team.
Our next event is the 12 Hours of Sebring, March 11th. We will be looking for drivers for this race. However, we understand that asking people to jump into a powerful GT3 or Prototype is a bit of a daunting task, especially when you throw 60 other cars on track. To make this easier, we are looking to do some driver/team development. The goal of this development is to get people up to a Class C license, this makes you eligible for all iRacing endurance races.
This development will be a combination of hosted sessions and group official racing (for Sebring, we will be heavily focused on the latter due to time).
- team building/race practice where we will become familiar with the car, track, some driving tips, and group practice races (“pit parties”).
- A fun race.
We are working on how to actually do this.
Group Official racing
- Discord will be open for all who want to spend time running races (most likely on weekends). The idea is to get a group and run official Mazda Miata Races. These races occur every hour. We will not all be in the same race, but we can all communicate with each other.
- This is the easiest way to practice and get you qualified for official endurance races.
- There will be a sizable component of this that will be on your own (weekdays, etc.). Sorry, but we cannot be there the whole time.
We will be mainly using the Mazda Miata, but may also dive into some of the other ‘free’ cars for further development, especially as we get closer to race day.
For the moment we are focused on Team-based endurance racing. However, we would be open to form teams/groups for any other iRacing series (NASCAR, Indycar, F1, street stocks, etc.).
Is there anything you would like to see out of Team Oppo? Let us know.
We will be asking about Sebring soon. See you on track.
