iRacing General Discussion

Post  Forgetful on Thu Feb 28, 2013 12:19 pm

Just a place to chat about iRacing in general.

This is a Corners Per Incident chart that shows the level of safe driving that is expected of you at a certain license level and number. If you want to improve your SR you must have fewer CPI than where you would land on that chart. More CPI and your number is going down. It's just that simple.

Speaking of CPI, I usually do okay in races, but I just qualified the skip at Lime Rock and couldn't seem to keep the nose headed in the right direction. 13 incidents and -0.19 later I decided that I hate Lime Rock and the Skip as a combination. I went straight to a TT to earn some SR back LOL. About to hop into my next qualifying session to sniff a :57....I really hope that TT straightened me out.

I was like a 5 year old who jumped on his dad's rig....it was ugly. Please SR Gods look favorably on me. sunny

Update: 3 incidents in 16 laps and still got a -0.03. I guess my last q session and couple incidents in the TT did me some cumulative harm. Gotta have some clean races tonight.

I did manage a :57.999 though! cheers

In and nervous. This track always makes me nervous for some reason. I've always had a hard time finding my comfort here, no matter what the car.

Good luck out there kind sir!

I went to Okayama - Full in the Mustang thinking, hey... I know this track really well, that should help with learning this whole H-shifter + clutch thing.

I was... you know, it wasn't the worst race I've ever run, but it must have been close. Started to feel better after about a dozen laps, but I don't think I am anywhere close to being able to race a car with a standard gearbox. Embarassed Laughing

At least I looked good! Cool

It's a really high stress track. No chance to catch your breath and just stretch out for a sec.

Yup, that's exactly it. To make it worse I'm always at high stress levels when Lime Rock shows it's head on the schedule so I always start off the week making a lot of mistakes in practice, which gets me more stressed, and so on and on. I found my rhythm with the TT and adopted a nice race pace which rewarded me two 0 incident races, a 2nd and a win. I was ecstatic shutting off the rig last night.

Hard work and persistence pays off. Smile

Okay, stats questions for you who are smarter than me.

In my little signature thing in the iRacing forums, what does CPI 75/83 mean? I'm assuming it's corners per incident, but I don't believe it updates very often considering it still says my main car is the Mustang. The iRating and License safety rating seem to update frequently, but little else. I've done some research but couldn't find an easy answer without looking through many different threads.

Also, when you look at your driving stats there is a column for top 25%. I'm assuming that means you finish in the top 25% of your races a certain percentage of the time, but some guys are well over 100%, and Chris Hughson is 3402%. LOL, what ever that means.

Any ideas?

I have to get to work and stop playing. Evil or Very Mad

According to one Jake Conway:
The Live Race Stats is a really nice tool to see this and understand how safe you are and if you have moved up or down (more or less safe) in a particular race week (CPI in livestats updates every monday night). the first value is CPI in your whole career, the scond value (after the slash) is the CPI in the last complete season plus info from this season. So last 13 weeks at the beginning of a new season, or last 26 weeks at the end of the season.

I've never seen the 25% stat you mention. Is that on LiveStats or in the iRacing stats? In iRacing there's Top 5 %, as in the % of your racing in which you finish in the top 5, Win %, your winning percentage and Lap Led %, % of your laps that you were the overall leader of the race.

Apparently contacting customer support for a name change/modification is a very common thing, for those numerical iRacers among us. Assuming you've got a middle initial that your namesakes aren't already using you should be able to trade your number in for a letter.

Edit: I was very wrong!

In those iRacing Sigs:

From left to right:
Driver name.
Ranking: Overall ranking in the iRacing service for Oval and Road, based on iRating. Lower is better.
iRating: Calculated and Used by iRacing to determine driver skill level. Higher is better.
Class: Calculated and Used by iRacing to determine driver safety rating, commonly abbreviated as SR (Safety Rating). Higher is better.
Starts: How many official iRacing races driver has entered.
Wins: How many official iRacing races driver won.
CPI: Corners Per Incidents. CPI is calculated by taking the total number of corners completed and dividing by the number of incidents during those laps. This represents how safe the driver is, higher is better. The number on the left is your career CPI, and the number on the right is your most recent CPI (specifically, the current and previous seasons combined). The two CPI calculations will give you an idea if you’re improving or not. If the number on the right is higher than the number on the left, you are currently driving safer than you were previously in your career.
Vehicle: This lists the vehicle that you have the most starts in throughout your entire career.

When I look up Chris Hughson I see:
He has 4,568 road race starts, of which he has won 3,204, finished in the top 5 4,321 times, won 3,096 pole positions.
His average Starting position is 2nd. His average finish position is 2nd.
He's turned 88,292 laps, and lead 40,574 of them.
He averages 1.11 Incidents Per Race, and scores an average of 118 points.
He wins 70.13% of the time, and has finished in the top 5 94.58% of the time. He's lead 45.95% of all laps he's run.

This guy seems like an absolute monster. iRating of ... 7864 wuttttttttttttt...

But I know not of what you speak regarding 3402%.

Also, sorry, I sat down to write this for you yesterday at work but then I didn't finish before I closed my browser Sad

I updated my post from yesterday after that CPI thing was bugging me, did more research, found proper answer. Cool

Thanks for the answers guys!

Regarding that 25% stat you can find it by going to the stats drop down in between my racing and forum. In the drop down menu go to drivers, once on drivers you'll see the 25% in between average points per race and laps. It's the same breakdown for road racing and oval.

That one specific stat doesn't seem to make any sense to me.

Thanks dudes!

Oh, neat, hadn't seen that page before.

Number of races in which you've finished in the top 25% of the field. Chris Hughson has run 4577 races and finished in the top 1/4 3414 times.

Hmmmm, I don't know. If it's a percentage value, I don't understand how it can exceed 100%, even if he won every race he ever entered; it would still be 100% no?

I had the same thought as you initially, but the more I thought about it I was still confused. My 25% stat is 82 which is the same percentage as my top 5 stat, which still doesn't mesh because you can finish in the lower top 25% and still not make the top 5.

I don't know. Maybe it's easiest to ask someone on the iRacing staff? It's really not that important, I've just been curious for a long time now and wondered if anyone else ever noticed it.

The number in that field isn't a percentage though, it's an integer value.

It should be the number of times you've placed in the top 25%
It's possible that you've either finished in the top 5 or outside of the top 25% every time. Ricky Bobby come to life?

Oh my god the whinging.

"Stop blocking me Benjamin. I'm faster than you and this is a multiclass race, and you're holding me up".

Translation. I got close to you once, when you screwed up one corner, once. You drove the racing line, rather than pull over and let me past. I then got past by a genuinely faster driver. You then proceeded to lap 0.5 seconds faster than me and beat me by several seconds, in the slower car class, and now I'm mad.
