Partnering with VRS

When you partner with some person or some company, it’s in hopes that a shared goal, like a great simulator racing experience, for instance, can be reached by working together.

Virtual Racing School (VRS) has a reputation for presenting not only fine setups, but helping drivers reach their potential with datapacks, analysis, and training. PCA Sim Racing has developed a reputation for some of the best, most respectful, and most competitive racing in all of the iRacing world.

Just as in real racing, sim racing requires preparation, training, and orientation to enjoy the hobby. Our Racecraft page will get you started with racing equipment, training, and orientation. As you might have guessed, it is possible to spend a nominal amount of money getting going, or also as you may have guessed, a significant amount of money. But as is always the case, proficiency comes with practice.
