I suck at iracing

Been using racer for a couple years to practice courses before i race them in real life with my chumpcar teams. The results were really good. I currently between jobs so like a true unemployed asshat i have started to play video games (and get tattoos). Just started doing online races and can't seem to catch a break. Always getting mixed up in some incident. I will qualify on pole but then get dive bombed or miss a shift or just plain fuck up. Still great fun though.
