iRacing LeMans

Week 11 of the iRacing IMSA series came from Virginia International Raceway (VIR).  The race circuit is really tricky with a number of slow speed corners, long straights and some fast flowing sections which can really unsettle the car.

Qualifying

Qualifying was a mixed result with a reasonable first lap posted but then a spin on the second lap ruined any chance of a decent qualy position.

Race

Battling understeer and snap oversteer with the car was the main issue for the race.  I got off to a good start making the most of other drivers incidents but then into one of the more flowing sections of the circuit the car got really loose and snapped off the road.  I was able to recover but a good race result was never going to come my way after that accident.

Qualifying


Good qualy result, I managed to qualify in eighth position an just over a second off the pole time. Was really happy with the time I posted as it was my fastest time around the Interlagos Circuit.

Race Report - IMSA Interlagos

The iRacing IMSA series is coming from the home of the Brazillian GP at Interlagos. This circuit has a fast outside of the circuit with a tricky infield section with a combination of left and right slow corners.

Qualifying

Qualifying was pretty uneventful with a good time posted for eighth position.

Race

The race went smoothly without too many issues and I found myself finishing in eighth position.

Qualifying

Qualifying for the IMSA race at Road America went well.  Good track conditions lead to a time that was good enough for third position.

Race

The race was a bit of a struggle losing positions early with being stuck on the outside of turns one and two.  After a few laps I found a good groove around the track and started to post some good lap times but the damage was all ready done losing those positions early.  By the end of the race I found myself in eleventh position.  I was still able to gain some much needed iRating and Safety Rating to maintain my class A license.

The latest round of the iRacing IMSA Series came from Lime Rock Park which is an excellent little track which promisies some close racing and the usual thrills and spills.

Qualifying

Qualifying went well with a laptime that was good enough for 5th position on the grid which isn't a bad way to start the race.

Race

The race got off to a good start and without any issues and I was able to find a good groove sitting in 4th position for the pit stop phase of the race.  After the pit stop phase I was sitting in 3rd position and was being harrassed by the 4th place driver for a number of laps before he dropped off the pace.  The last few laps became rather exciting when the driver in 1st place had a spin which let me catch right up to the back of him and we had a great battle which came down to .1 of second as we crossed the line.  So in the end a great an entertaining race with me finishing second for a good points haul.

Week 2 of Season 3,17 came from the historic Watkins Glen using the Boot layout.  The race circuit is fast with some tricky slow and medium speed corners with elevation and camber changes which can throw the car of course if you are not careful.
