    All,

    We are looking to add a few more people into our ranks to be stewards for weekly events as well as endurance races.

    Qualifications:

    Considerable experience racing online. Experience at TORA is a plus though racing at other sites works as well.
    Knowledgeable about race craft as well as the TORA Rulebook
    Available weekly to deliberate Incidents
    Not-biased.

    Due to abundance of drivers in staff already, applications will not be accepted from DDM and SFM drivers. This will reduce inherent bias, though drivers from these teams already are...

    All,

    I wanted to take this time to speak to everyone regarding multi-class racing and "how" to drive it, no matter which class you're competing in, high or low. Over the past few series, such as British GT and more recently GT Cup, there has been a growing concern of drivers in both classes acting inappropriately towards one another. This sort of racing is probably one of the more difficult ones to get right in all of league racing, due to its unsaid intricacies.

    Here are some highlights:

    1. Drivers in the other class as you ARE in fact racing for a class win of...

    Today TORA is proud to reveal it will be on the British GT grid in 2019!

    Partnering with Century Motorsport's Angus Fender, TORA will be closely following his progress through the season, supporting him through social media and - of course - welcoming him onto the TORA Radio Show for the British GT Preview on 28th March.

    The all new TORA logo revealed last week will appear on Angus' Century Motorsport BMW M4 GT4 and the team replica will be made available on Forza Motorsport 7 before the start of the Official British GT esports Championship in April.

    Hello everyone and welcome to the latest edition of TORA news. Many apologies for the long gap between the last news article I wrote last month. It’s been an extremely busy time but now I shall make amends.
    Just before we begin with the news, I would like to say a big personal thank you to everyone who has taken their time to read my rather long blog. The response that I’ve received from the community has been extremely immense. Whether it was via the TORA forums, Private Message, Facebook...

    In a new for 2014 series, Matt gives us his thoughts on motorsport and sim racing.

    Let’s start this time with a question.
    What constitutes too much contact in motorsport?
    Our sport is replete with examples of categories that indulge in a wee bit of door rubbing. In some cases, this is actively encouraged. NASCAR has bump drafting for example and stock cars are positively boring without it. How about touring cars though?

    Back in the Super Touring days there was always a good amount...

    Hello race fans,
    It’s race day! The day some of us have been preparing for over the last month, since Sebring, or since last year’s race is upon us. This year, 28 teams will take to the track over the gruelling 24 hours. 13 LMP cars will compete for overall victory ranging from buzzing deasil powered cars to screaming petrol powered Aston Martins. Notable entries in this class XP Racing, who qualified on pole position for the race thanks...

    Hello and welcome to the latest edition of TORA News.

    We kick things off with the 5th Forza Motorsport Photo competition where we asked the community to use their creative minds and come up with an “Offroad Theme” to their pictures. You guys have voted and the winner of the competition was XPR Devil who created this rather splendid image. Many congratulations to him and many thanks to those of you who took part.

    This time twelve months ago, TORA had completed its fourth annual running of their most prestigious endurance race of them all, the TORA 24 Heures Du Mans.
    The field last year was absolutely ginormous with a total of 50 cars taking to the grid and somehow, all of them scrambled to the finish line after 24 hours of arduous, tense, physically challenging but extremely exciting racing.
    Last years event was eventually won by the F4H Red Sonia team, which was F4H’s second overall victory in succession. Could...

    We kick things off first with the TORA photo competition which is drawing ever nearer to its conclusion. This time, we’ve asked the community to produce...

    Note: this is a repost of some ramblings I had come up with last year. In light of some issues that have come up in recent weeks, it seems that some racers could use a few words about respect and sportsmanship. If you have read it before fine, if not let me step up to the pulpit and preach the sermon...

    Being somehow involved in racing for longer than I can remember, I have learned a few things along the way. Much of what I learned about racers decades ago still applies in virtual racing...

    Seasons greeting, hopefully everyone is geared up and ready for Christmas! We haven't really done an update like this for a while but we now feel that we understand how we are going to approach 2014 as a community and how we are going to go racing.

    As everyone is probably aware there are certain...issues with Forza Motorsport 5 that has put a - hopefully - temporary halt to our grand plans for the coming year. As with all other communities affected by Forza 5's features, or lack thereof, some of us have lost the momentum we had on the build up to launch and has put us off our stride...

    .My name is Colin Baker and I currently compete in local Sprint Car races at Cottage Grove Speedway. I haven't been following any series in particular this year because the team I drove for since I started 5 years ago sold out which left me ride hunting. I was given the chance to wheel a car in the biggest 360 races that come to Cottage Grove every year (ASCS National Tour)...

    Another weekly round-up from all that is TORA, with opening news that we've surpassed 2300 members! Since our founding, our general range of members have come from English speaking regions of Europe and North America, which means an online racing equivalent of the Ryder Cup is still possible.

    We are still expanding, and may now cater for those countries that encompass the Indian Ocean. To add to the handful of time-zone defying Aussies, our net has caught a few new online fish from...
