iRacing.com Motorsport Simulations developed iRacing in 2008. It is a subscription-based, virtual racing simulation video game. Being a subscription-based game, players may only pay for the cars and tracks that they want to use. This and the extreme realism are the key highlights of iRacing. The game will only pit you against real players who join from across the world. As a result, you may run into rogue players who would just intentionally smash into your car, or force you to lose control. Unlike other video games, iRacing has a little complicated report system. Players can file a protest against other opponents in the game. Below, we will tell you how you can do this and what steps are necessary to file a successful Protest in the game.
