iRacing IMSA Road Atlanta

iRacing IMSA Road Atlanta

The last round of the iRacing IMSA Sports Cars series came from Road Atlanta Road Atlanta is a 2.54-mile (4.088 km) road course.  The track has 12 turns, including the famous “esses” between turns three and five; and Turn 12, a downhill, diving turn.  There was a good field of cars for this round and the racing was good throughout.  Due to the small size of the track and the different species, cars lapped traffic at various stages can become an issue.


Qualifying consists of two laps with the best lap being your qualifying lap.  My first quality lap was pretty good but unfortunately, my second lap didn’t get going due to getting a load of oversteer through the last corner leading onto the main straight.  After qualifying, I was 11th in class and 14th overall which wasn’t a bad effort for my first go.


The race was pretty uneventful for me with not too much action in the 75-minute race with battles being pretty rare.  After the first stop, the car was a bit unsettled and tricky to drive which lead to a couple of mistakes but nothing which was too bad.  At the end of the race, I finished 7th in class and 11th overall which was a good result.
