    I'm sure Scott will not be too upset, he still gets to play with the real things. The person he hit will be chuffed too with his 5 minutes off internet fame. Everybody wins.

    Ex-F1 driver. Drove for Toro Rosso in 2006 and 2007, before Toro Rosso replaced him with Sebastian Vettel halfway through the season. Current Global Rallycross champion, winning every title from 2015 to date.

    And apparently a terrible loser.

    Scott Speed’s most famous moment in stock car racing. He and Ricky Stenhouse entered 1-2 in ARCA points going into the final race, and Justin Allgaier who entered 3rd ended up winning the championship because of this.

    To be fair this was somewhat warranted since Stenhouse obviously deliberately took him out to begin with.

    “He started it”

    I think Scott Speed should just enter boxing, kickboxing, MMA or something of the sort. At least than his anger management issues aren't so much of an issue.
    He's just a sad bloke... makes you rethink why he has been in so many driving classes already. I'm starting to think it's his mental issues that were at the core of it all.

    I wonder if this will have any reprocussions on his professional driving career (the real life one) as I am sure people will second guess hiring him as a driver from now on. At least I would if I owned a team.

    I remember b/s being relatively clean with some dirty people here and there but not too bad. A/s is good for now most of times clean races but lately it seems some russians are so rude and like to push and hit to gain a position.. that's sad.

    I went to a/a for 2 hours and the game put me against b/c, c/b even d that were a bit madness and strange.

    Jake is rad, I watch him whenever I can. I think he handled the situation pretty well. If it were me I might try something cheeky to get revenge... but then again, I just play Project Cars. :lol:

    Speed's the name, Sonic's my game!

    This kind of behavior will probably make some people not take games like iRacing seriously.

    Maybe he should get a job at EA? They've got the Need for Speed unlike iRacing.

    Goes to show. However famous you are (in his instance former f1 driver). Your fame means nothing in the likes of iracing.

    Low horse POV: This is very encouraging. Shows that petulant swinery isn't limited to us proles. First Vettel, now Speed. Keep it coming.
