Race Report - Virginia International Raceway

By / iRacing IMSA Series / Wednesday, 30 August 2017 01:16

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.
