High Octane Racing League will be hosting a series of races on Friday nights. The purpose of the series will be to introduce/assist new/rookie drivers into the Rfactor 2 Stockcar sim. Please read our rules prior to participating in any events.


About Us

We are a group of senior men, who for the most of us, this is as close as we are going to get to driving a race car. We are respectful and clean drivers and expect new drivers to do the same. We believe the game should be fun for everyone and try to provide a fair and even playing field for everyone to enjoy.

Our History                                                                        

High Octane Racing League was founded in 2001 by Steve Fries, to give drivers a free to place to run that provided a clean/respectful racing environment. We lost Steve in 2011 due to Cancer, but his memory lives on. High Octane Racing League ran Papyrus sims until 2009 when we switched to rfactor Stockcar Evolution and finally Rfactor 2 Stockcars. High Octane is a league that prides itself in fair and somewhat serious competition with a group of drivers that are fast but very clean and respectful. This Core group of experienced drivers run with us every Friday Night and are willing to lend us their expertise on setting up the car, to driving habits and general Rfactor 2 problems. 


Our Format

We will be running a series of races maybe 3 races 2 short races of 20-30 laps and a race of 50-70 laps, the last race being a points race contributing to an overall series championship. The short races will give you a chance to get accustomed to the car and how it drives, practice pit stops, figure out fuel mileage, etc., to help prepare for the final points race.  All of our races are fixed setup, so if your new to the mod and like oval track racing, but aren't quite fimilar with setting up the car, don't worry already taken care of and we have driving coaches willing to lend a hand.
