BMW Team Redline Goes 1-2 in Top Split of iRacing Spa 24HR Powered by Heusinkveld

Each summer, the world’s top GT3 drivers descend upon the legendary Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps for the Spa 24HR. As always, the world’s best iRacers did the same the week beforehand for the iRacing Spa 24HR Powered by Heusinkveld. And as has been the case, more often than not, this year, BMW Team Redline took the checkered flag in the top split at the end of an endurance event.

This time, it was the Red team of Maximilian Benecke, Patrik Holzmann, and Jonas Wallmeier taking the victory, leading 415 of the race’s 612 laps from the pole to post a victory of nearly 30 seconds over the Blue squad of Chris Lulham, Enzo Bonito, and Lorenzo Colombo. Not to be outdone, the second Redline car led 105 laps of its own.

Only four teams out of 54 in the top split, all running the BMW M4 GT3, finished on the lead lap; BMW Team BS Competition’s Rainer Talvar, Alexander Voß, and Phil Denes led 24 laps and took the final podium spot over Williams Esports’ Lasse Bak, Martin Christensen, Daniel Lafuente, and Josh Thompson, who led an additional 37. All told, thousands of iRacers combined to create 36 splits of the event, including 19 in the 12:00 GMT time slot on Saturday.

Full results from the top split of the 2021 iRacing Spa 24HR were as follows:
