WE'RE GONNA SHAKE & BAKE:
Looking for a little friendly smack talk? Unlike a real race, this virtual race will give you the ability to talk to the other drivers and be interviewed by the trackside announcers.
Install Discord, create an account, and launch Discord. In the top left corner, look for “Find or start a conversation”:
Type “Apex Racing TV”:
Join the main APTV Server and look for “General” voice channel.
The APTV host will move you into the appropriate private voice channel before the race.
Click the Settings sprocket in the bottom left corner of your Discord screen
Configure Push to Talk by selecting the “Voice and Video” settings, selecting “Push to Talk” and choosing a keyboard or steering wheel button to use it. This will ensure you don’t accidentally speak during the broadcast.
WARNING: Both drivers and viewers watching over the Internet *will* hear everything you say.
iRacing doesn’t start races from within the app itself. It uses its website to launch iRacing for a specific race.
Log into iRacing and look for “Hosted Races”
