I would quit racing games on the Xbox, or any consoles. Try http://www.iracing.com
. Its like, a racing mmorpg. You sign up for an account for your pc, you'll need a wheel, then your work yourself up into better series' that you can pick from as you gain experience. Professional racers play this in their free time, you could conceivably end up in a race with many of them, I know its popular among NASCAR drivers. Its not an arcade, its considered to be a simulation.
iRacing.com features talent ladders that drivers can climb, based on their experience, the skills they have acquired and their record of on-track safety. ... . And while for organized competition drivers need to progress through increasingly demanding license levels, all members have access to unlimited test sessions with the cars or tracks they've purchased. Additionally they can race the content they have purchased at any time in private hosted sessions.
I plan on joining it once I get a good/excellent wheel. Your subscription includes 8 tracks and 6 rookies cars. From there after you earn a license, then you can buy cars and tracks packages. Not sure of the cost, but once you buy them, you keep them forever.
They have a special running, 3 months for $12. http://www.iracing.com/promotions/2-free/
Its says you can start a league, but that means you can start one, but you have to pay four hourly use of the servers or something like that (about 50 cents an hour for the host only). Its all sounds expensive, but when I last emailed with them about costs, its was very reasonable to escape online console communities, and get a simulation where you can race people on your level.
However, they do not offer the ability to use human spotters.
