About us

WHO WE ARE

ARAIG started back in September 2010:- The 'As Real As It Gets' league brought back ARCA as a Sim to R2P for the first time since the end of 2009.

Our final season of ARCA ended in April 2016.

From May 2016 we'll be using the rFactor 2 Sim for our Stock Car Racing.

HOW TO JOIN US?

Should you wish to race you will need to join the League by sending League Owner Andy Graydon a R2P PM (specifically asking to join 'ARAIG'). An invite will be issued via the R2P system - once you accept that invite you will be able to sign up for our events.

ABOUT ME

Sim Racing since 2001 with Formula 1 games such as Microprose GP3 and GP4. Helped run the F1VWC (F1 related league with Team Owners able to change physics of cars in GP3 or GP4 - adding that extra bit of realism!!).

F1VWC ended in 2008, so came over to R2P. Mainly a GTR2 man, but branched into several sims since joining.

Had NASCAR 2003 but never played online, then bought ARCA in December 2008. Love the Sim, and what's even better was racing against some great guys (fast, but helpful too!).
