    The newly formed Champion Motorsports esports team came together quickly with a recent formation of a team and entry into the P1 Gaming 12 Hours of Suzuka this past weekend. After a long 12 hours the team has come back to the United States and Canada after the race with the pleasure of a solid finish in our first race. The goals were to have fun and do our best to finish both of which we more than accomplished. The car was running strong and gaining positions up until the very end of the race, including a final few laps path to take 18th in the GTE class. What could have been seen as a far from ideal performance, was definitely not taken that way by the team as it was a very successful maiden outing for a new team, new car, new league, new everything. In the end we were able to beat 7 other class cars and feel very optimistic about our future.

    Full results of the race and team standings are available at:
    https://p1-gaming.de/p1lms/p1lms_TeamStandings.html

    While the team did not score points in our first race, we will be headed back overseas in a few weeks on April 13th to run again in the 8 hours of Silverstone. A track our driver lineup is a little bit more familiar with. Also, with lots of time to prepare and develop the car and a second set of engineering and setup efforts we are feeling very bullish.

    At Suzuka it became clear on many levels the personalities and potential we have in the team. Starting with Matthew Overton, one of is not our most experienced driver in rFactor endurance formats. Matthew came over to us from the LMP Stable at SimHQ Motorsports. Wanting to get back to his roots and desires for running GTE cars, team managers Doug Atkinson at SimHQ and David Anderson were able to strike a deal with the help of Jon Uyan that would allow Matthew to drive under the CMS banner and become a permanent member of the CMS team for this year. This was huge because Matthew would be able to start the race for us, and also get everyone on the team familiar with the rules, procedures and ways of racing with P1 Gaming. Matthew was consistent and solid for us all day at Suzuka and has a great endurance Mindset we can rally around.

    Bill Brehm our senior driver with a tremendous amount of wisdom would also run at Suzuka. Bill held his own on many fronts, and despite some early race jitters and a bring into the pits for a penalty he would keep calm, cool, and give us a solid effort. Equally as important leading up to the race, Bill was instrumental in helping the team get ready with Data and Motec Analysis, deep setup expertise and a great understanding of the technical elements of the car. This was extremely beneficial for our dialing in of the car on short runway, with Bill's leadership.

    Vincent Marsh, our youngest (17 years old) driver on the team and with tremendous energy and potential also logged significant laps at Suzuka. Right from the word go on the team forming Vince has been a breath of fresh air. Tons of ideas, energy and a super positive attitude has been a welcome in the garage. Vince isn't afraid to try things and adapt and is wise beyond his years with maturity. While early in the race Vince struggled and had some issues in the car that we had to overcome, he recovered beautifully later in the race when we needed him the most to get us in a position to gain a few positions at the end. Vince, ran a nearly flawless stint at the end of the race, which was a huge spring board for more things to come.

    JT Tami. No mistake about it JT was and is our A driver right now. JT was quick, consistent and showed incredible race craft at Suzuka. We knew we had a shot at improving on the track with JT in the car, and we wanted him in the car as much as possible. The positions we gained on the track all day long were in large part due to JT's driving. At the end, with only a few laps remaining he pushed hard and got us yet another position to finish 18th of 25th. A never give up fight, and pace we can all aspire to have JT in our number one driver seat.

    For Silverstone we will be making a few changes and tweaks. Bill Brehm is going to step into a development role, and focus for this race and beyond on helping us prepare. He's retiring the gloves from behind the wheel, but we are hoping will still be an instrumental part of the team in our preparation and testing.

    Team Manager David Anderson will drive at Silverstone in Bill's place. Getting his first laps with the team in addition to the important team manager role we will see if David can bring leadership on the track beyond the garage as well.

    We are also recruiting as we would like to add another driver to the group. Additionally we are so excited about this effort that if other drivers at CMS would like to participate we can begin talking about a second car hopefully with interest and demand from the CMS community.


    We will be back with more info on Silverstone as we get ready and cya on the track!

    Champion Motorsports is very excited to announce that we are forming an e-sports team for rFactor 2 which will start by competing in the P1 Gaming Endurance Championship in the GTE class, starting on March 3rd at Suzuka in the 12 hours. An effort that was organized by members of the Champion Motorsports community here on the forums and with close partnership and collaboration with our friends at SimHQ Motorsports.

    A preview of the livery that we will be running is shared here as the team will compete in the BMW GTE car, with Champion Motorsports being shown proudly.



    The team roster includes:

    Team Manager: David Anderson: David is the founder of Champion Motorsports and will manage the team and our involvement and entries in the series. David will also be a test driver and backup driver should he be called up on by the team.

    JT Tami: No stranger to racing and racing well on the rFactor platform. JT is a real pro and someone that has been a part of Champoion Motorsports and our community for a very long time. JT will set a bar for the team on pace and consistency that will be a great motivator

    Matthew Overton: Coming from Canada and also a co-member of SimHQ Motorsports, Matthew is a phenomenal driver. He has raced with the CMS endurance team prior in multiple iRacing Endurance events. He also has quite a bit of experience with the P1 Gaming league and will be a very stable and core part of the team.

    Vincent Marsh: Another Canadian as well as a newcomer to Champion Motorsports, Vincent brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the team. Recently finding Champion Motorsports by way of our new Monday Night Assetto Corsa Competizione league, Vincent saw this opportunity and wanted to get in from the start. Already proving to be a valuable member of the team as we prepare and work on the car setup we are excited to have Vincent.

    Bill Brehm: Rounding out the team is Bill, one of the most experienced, and longer time members of the simracing community. Bill has been racing with Champion in our rFactor 2 events for quite some time now. His involvement in simracing also dates back to the early GPL leagues that many members of CMS were part of too. Having Bill on the team will bring a lot of wisdom and experience that is so important in these kinds or races!

    Stay tuned for more information as this is a developing story and we will continue to provide updates on the teams progress at Suzuka and beyond!!! Congratulations to the roster, and let's go have some fun!

    Please enjoy this 4 Races in Season to Date Recap from Tim Collier on our Wednesday Night iRacing GT Series!



    In this first full season of the CMS-TXL series, we have some great battles atop the standings in our three divisions as we head to race #5 at Sebring International this week!! Let's take a look at where we are...

    GTE Pro Class:

    After four races, there's a literal log-jam atop the standings here, with Clark Archer holding a one point lead over Leif Peterson and Paul Darling. This is a battle that, barring absentees, will go down to the wire. Just behind them in 4th, Chris Pence is waiting to pounce on any bad nights ahead, and don't overlook Victor Tanaka in 5th, who could make up that one missed race before all is said and done. All told, this division has had four different winners in the first four races, and bets are that the diversity in spreading the points around won't end anytime soon.

    GTE Am Class:

    This division has seen the highest turnout on average this season, which means off nights cost you more points, and therefore it will take clean races to put in a bid for the title. After a spectactular run at the Ring, Kris Hudson holds a 15 point lead over Peter Hebron, who has also had a great season so far. Behind them in third, Julie took the win at Daytona and has been in the mix keeping it close in the standings, and just behind her we have a group of drivers that have proven consistency is key. Jay Freels and David Anderson are currently tied for 4th, with JT Tami, Dion Smith and Russell Gordon all in the mix as well. With 5 races to go, there's a lot of points a stake, both to gain and lose, so expect a lot of movement in this list in the coming weeks!

    GT3 Gents Class:

    With less downforce than the GTE cars, as well as having to navigate traffic both ahead and behind makes this a very tough job for any driver. This class has had four different winners in the first four races, but Paul Hamilton's consistency has put him atop the standings for the moment, with a 20 point lead over returning veteran Mike Tyler, who gets faster week after week. Hamilton's experience will pay dividends, but keep an eye in the mirror as just behind Tyler are drivers with a one race deficit but still in the hunt, being led by Anthony James, a driver that's consistently listed at the top of the speed chart each week. But don't leave out John Addison, another sim-racing veteran, and Jay Dargert , yet another driver already with a win this season. My money is that this class will close up before it's all said and done.


    And remember that provisional points are earned after every two races attended....but more importantly, after Sebring it's Lime Rock, the North American bullring, where it will be a very busy night for everyone on the track!

    Good luck this week everyone, and enjoy the beautiful sunset in Florida!!
