Week 3 of the iRacing Blancpain Sprint came from Canada which promises to be an excellent circuit for the GT3 cars.
Qualy wasn't the best with posting a time that was only good for the midfield but hopefully with a good clean race I should be able to make up some positions.
A great result from the race. An early incident meant that I moved up a number of positions and with the car getting faster as the race unfolded, I was able to obtain a top five position.

Circuit Zandvoort is the final race of Season 2, 2017 for the iRacing Blancpain Sprint Series. Zandvoort is an awesome little circuit in Belgium. The track has some fast corners and tight hairpins which makes for a challenge and combining this with differing heights and cambers can make this track a real handfull to get the hang of.
This weeks racing in the iRacing Blancpain Sprint comes from Twin Ring Motegi which is a nice technical race track located in Asia. The circuit has many double apex corners and mid speed corners which provides a lot of overtaking oppotunities and the wide nature of the circuit makes it fairly forgiving if you drive over the limit.
The first week of Season 3,2017 in the iRacing Blancpain Sprint came from the legendary LeMans race circuit famous for the 24h enduro. In the Blancpain Sprint version the race went for 60 minutes (if you didn't get punted off the road)
Latest round of the iRacing Blancpain Sprint came from Barber Motor Sports Park in the US. It's an excellent track with some fast flowing corners tight double apex turns and a lot of elevation changes to keep the drivers on their toes. The track layout makes for some exciting racing and spectacular crashes due to the unforgiving nature of the race track.
The last round of the iRacing Blancpain Sprint Series comes from the home of the Itallian Grand Prix at Monza.
