Le Mans holds a special place in the hearts of endurance drivers whether RL or virtual, with the two CMS events seeing strong fields to contest their races. NARS On a relatively cool and dry track, it was PRO Hypercar driver Daniel Kirby that set the fastest overall lap at 3:25.961 in his Mercedes AMG 1 with Hypercar AM driver Jerry Chen coming in at P7 after putting up a 3:30.097 in his Porsche 908-04. On the GT side, PRO Eduardo Beninca set the standard for that field at 3:53.82 in a Lexus RCF with the fastest GT AM qualifier, Stuart Barge putting his Honda NSX around > more

Story Credits: Matthew Overton |Photo Credits: Daniel Kirby June 6th, 2022 - The single rF2 event at CMS this week was the double sprint night at Trembling Mountain for the Radical series at NARS. As with Toban the week before, the twisting nature of this track, based on Mount Tremblant, was a real levelling agent between the two classes, putting them almost on equal footing. Qualifying set the tone for the entire race meeting as none of the GT3 drivers were able to put themselves ahead of the SR3s driven by the PROs. AM driver Tom Mountjoy slotted into P3 in the qualifying with a 1:34.500, well shy of the 1:32.880 set by Daniel Kirby to take the overall pole. R1 saw P2 Eduardo Beninca off track almost as soon as the race had started with a long recovery drive ahead of him while Kirby had his > more

Story and Photo Credits: Matthew Overton May 31, 2022 - This week, the MNRL traveled to Portland for a couple of sprints with the Datsun 510s while NARS took the Radicals to Toban for their second endurance race of the season. Eduardo Beninca pipped Jason Whited for the pole in the first of the two sprint races, less than 1/2s ahead with a 1:21.489. The tight qualifying battle carried on into R1, with Beninca prevailing by an even smaller margin after 18 laps! Joe Miller placed 3rd, only 8 seconds adrift of the leading pair, attesting to a very hotly contested race. R2, with the reverse grid, saw equally intense racing, every driver bettering their best race lap timings. Despite Whited’s best efforts, Beninca was able to pass and stay in front of his rival to take the second win of the night . Whited had to > more

The CMS rF2 Week in Review: Maher with the Double Win in AM at LeMans Photo Credits: Daniel Kirby, Matthew Overton After a quiet week, all three CMS rF2 chapters were back in action. While all the attention was focused on the WSC 91 races at LeMans, the Radical series at Barber proved that it could provide some exciting racing as well. First up was the MNRL at LeMans, with the poles in class claimed by George Angelidis (Overall and PURIST) in his Lucky Strike Mazda 787B, Brian Hall (PRO) in his Hall Brothers Jaguar XJR-14 and John Maher (AM) in another Lucky Strike Mazda. The 14 drivers launched enthusiastically into the 2.4h race with 10x time compression for a full day/night cycle. With the special BoP for the race, some close competition on this unique circuit was guaranteed. With a small field however plenty of racing > more

Story Credits: Matthew Overton Photo Credits: Daniel Kirby Just one race this week for rF2 - Radicals at Road America for the first of the endurance format races. A venue very familiar to CMS racers, anticipation was high for some keen competition in the two classes. AM driver Paul Ibbotson set the pace with a 2:05.068 in his GT3, almost a second clear of his closest competitor, newcomer Adrian Wong. In the SR3s, with a 2:08.746, PRO Daniel Kirby just edged out Eduardo Beninca, renewing the rivalry that has become a fixture in the NARS races. While Road America with it’s long straights is ideal for the GT3s to stretch their legs over the SR3s, it proved to be more of a challenge than expected for the AM drivers. Only three of them were able to finish ahead of the SR3-equipped PROs and by the checkered flag, > more
