VWSC 2.4 Hours of Le Mans

Feature by George Angelidis

September 12, 2020 – Le Mans holds a special place in our hearts. More than any other race, it’s a crucible in which new technology is forged, a technology that’s directly relevant to the cars you or I drive on the road. And for 2 hours and 20 minutes (out of a 2h:24min race), this year’s race belonged to Marco Antonio Rodriguez, which put on a fine show with his Oreca LMP2 race car. But racing can be a cruel, cruel sport and this year’s edition was crueler than […]

ACC Monday Kicks Off GT4 Series

Race Report by Drake Burgoon

Night Racing Kickoff

Monday saw the first round of the much anticipated CMS Assetto Corsa Competizione GT4 Series, and it did not disappoint. The race was a 60-minute race at South Africa’s Kyalami circuit and featured 1 mandatory stop for fuel with tires being optional. Due to the overwhelming attendance, the event was split into two servers with split 1 being all Pro classification and split 2 being Silver and AM.

GTE / GT4 Cup Series at Detroit Belle Isle

Race Report by Tim Collier

June 3, 2020 – Throughout a season of racing, there are races that go beyond the battle between drivers to include the struggle with the circuit itself. Detroit Belle Isle street circuit is one of those places, with its tight confines, a mix of long straights and fast curves with the lack of run-off and tall kerbs, it only takes a moment to go from the lead to the hauler. For the GTE/GT4 Cup Series, this was race six of the season and set the stage for the final run to the championship.

Qualifying was no surprise […]

TCR/MX-5 Club Series at VIR-North

Race Report by Tim Collier

May 20, 2020 – For this week’s TCR/MX-5 Club Series race, the haulers took a drive through the hills of Virginia to the famed VIR circuit where the drivers would negotiate the tight and twisty North Circuit layout. Weather conditions were ideal, and the lap times confirmed this would be a race where the least mistakes make the difference.

The qualifying session showed no surprise in the MX-5 class, where Kurt Polter put his Mazda on the pole once again, this time by a gap of half a second over Bryan Ortiz. The Audis however had quite […]

GTE/GT4 Cup Series at Road Atlanta

Race Report by Tim Collier

As the GTE/GT4 Cup season crests the halfway point, this week’s race took to the hills of Road Atlanta for the second endurance length event of the season. With the sun setting and the longer race length, nothing was for certain until the checkered flag fell.

The qualifying session was inadvertently limited to one flying lap, but it didn’t keep Kurt Polter from claiming the GT4 class pole once again this season, with a margin of 1.2 seconds back to Jason Lundy. In the GTE class, Humberto Roca took the front starting spot by half a second […]

May 10, 2020 – The Champion Motorsports Sunday Night Assetto Corsa Historics League continued rolling with a very special and fun event on Mothers Day evening this week.  A strong field showed up to tackle the very technical and challenging Algarve Circuit.

GTE/GT4 Cup Series at Brands Hatch

Race Report by Tim Collier

May 6, 2020 – On a beautiful Fall afternoon in England, the Champion Motorsports MX-5 Club Series met to take on the full circuit for the seventh race of the season. If there’s one thing about this series that proves to be true, even 30 minutes is more than enough time for plenty of racing action.

In the qualifying session, the TCR class would see Kris Hudson grab the pole by almost half a second with a lap time of 1:34.096, edging out JT Tami who would start alongside on the front row. In the MX-5 class, […]

Race Report by David Anderson

Round 3

May 3, 2020 – The CMS Assetto Corsa Historics Series took to Finland this week for a really fun track at the unique Ahvenisto Race Circuit, a track we do not visit often. Ahvenisto presents a winding roll through the hills that is both fun and challenging.

NARS at The Green Hell 2020

Feature by George Angelidis

April 30, 2020 – The Nürburgring. This is the world’s most challenging racetrack. 154 bends. 20.83km. Too dangerous for Formula 1. No wonder Jackie Stewart called it “The Green Hell”.  So, what is it, that brings us back here? What drives us to go faster? To push harder? And brake later? I guess it’s what we do. It’s what we have always done. So, did we do it? 20 drivers were brave enough to tackle the race!

NARS at The Green Hell race start[…]

GTE/GT4 Cup Series at Mid-Ohio

Race Report by Tim Collier

April 29, 2020 – As the GTE/GT4 Cup Series hits halfway on the season schedule, the field would regroup at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for this week’s battleground. The tight, twisty confines of this circuit would create few passing opportunities between drivers, and between classes. With the sun setting low on the front stretch, the fight would last until the end of the 1-hour race time.

Qualifying in the GTE class would see Humberto Roca taking the front spot by two-tenths, while in GT4 Kurt Polter took the pole position in class by less than half a […]

TCR/MX-5 Club Series at Silverstone

Race Report by Tim Collier

April 22, 2020 – As with last week’s race at the Historic Barcelona layout, this week the TCR/MX-5 Series would take a trip back in time to the 2008 layout of Silverstone’s Grand Prix circuit for a 30-minute duel in the sun.

With 7 TCR entries and 10 Mazdas, things were shaping up where qualifying would be very important as always, and Turn 1 a high-speed bend that would cause some to lose, and others to gain. In the MX-5 class, Justin Hess would grab the pole with a very impressive 2:11.479, and in the TCR class, […]

GTE/GT4 Cup Series at Barcelona

Race Report by Tim Collier

April 15, 2020 – One of the greatest things about GT racing is the fact that the cars have headlights because not every course is lit for night racing without them. This opens the door for duels in the dark such as the GTE/GT4 Series pulled off this week at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, running the historic layout.

In qualifying, the GT4 class top spot was the sole property of Kurt Polter once again winning that front starting spot by more than 2 seconds!! In the GTE class, Dion Smith would take the overall pole […]

Race Report by Tim Collier

April 8, 2020 – As the TCR/MX-5 Club Series hits his stride, the teams headed to sunny California and Weathertech Raceway at Laguna Seca for the fifth race of the season marking the halfway point to the title. Another large field for both classes provided some great action on the track, and for some in the sand.

GTE/GT4 Cup Series at Spa

Race Report by Tim Collier

April 1, 2020 – Who doesn’t love Belgium in the morning? This week’s GTE/GT4 Cup Series race started with the sun just over the mountains and with quite a chilly track temperature to go along with a 34 car field and the endurance length race, this event was destined to have a very interesting outcome with tire strategy playing a large part of the final standings.

Qualifying went as usual in the GTE class with Humberto Roca nailing a fast lap of 2:13.673 edging out Angle Ledesma by a mere 0.067 seconds for the top spot. In […]
