Determine if you already have computer resources that will work, or if you’ll need to purchase some additional hardware. PCA Sim Racing uses the well-known iRacing desktop sim racing service, and they have a free test to determine if your computer meets their system requirements, click here. The sim racing equipment you need to start racing can be very modest. But like all things racing, there is equipment to fit whatever you want to spend. It is a common misconception that you need to invest heavily to get started. You don’t.
Sign up with the iRacing service.
There are several options available from a short trial to a full-year subscription. Look here for the available options. When you set up your account, be sure you provide a valid email account and allow administrators to send you an email.
There are multiple tracks and cars in the “starter” iRacing package, but additional cars and tracks will need to be purchased as you enter our various race events. Each car and track beyond the starter package costs $12-15 USD. We use different iRacing Porsches and around a dozen tracks per year. You can purchase each car and track needed as you join our events and race series. Each item is a one-time purchase from iRacing and once in your account, they are permanently in your iRacing account.

Once your registration has been received, you will receive a “welcome” email that includes contact information to get you going in our onboarding program.
Be sure to whitelist the email email@example.com so your spam filter does not block this important message.
Once through onboarding, you’ll be invited to join the Entry League.
Our Entry League is where everyone starts and is our primary program for providing instruction to novice drivers. For more skilled drivers it is an opportunity to experience the PCA Sim Racing community before progressing onward.
Drivers may stay in Entry League as long as they want to take advantage of the instruction opportunities provided there. After completing the necessary prerequisites drivers can request a “check ride” to be admitted to one of the PCA Sim Racing national classes.
Once a driver has been admitted to one of the PCA Sim Racing national classes (Challenge, Sport, Club, or Pro) they are welcome to join any of our series and events! We have plenty of activity throughout the year for all levels of sim racing drivers.
We hope to see you on the track!
