Week 1, Season 3,2017 of the iRacing IMSA series came from Suzuka with a full field made up of the Ford GT and Ferrari 488 which turned it into a GTE battle in the split.
Qualifying was a disaster as I was not able to complete a lap without incident which basically put me at the rear of the field and with a full field of cars evenly matched passing was going to be difficult.
As I suspected passing was going to be difficult and it was very hard to make up positions even though I felt I was quite a bit quicker than some of the other drivers but I wasn’t fast enough in the places that made it count. Overall I made too many mistakes and getting involved in too many battles lead to me by DQ for too many incidents. Not a great start to the IMSA series. Bring Watkins Glen next week which will hopefully be a lot better.
