  • CMS Endurance Team Enters and Finishes Four Cars at Sebring!

    Another first this week for the Champion Motorsports esports iRacing Endurance team as for the first time in team history we would enter a total of four cars in a race. For this week's VRS GT3 Series Enduro at Sebring we had our Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Omega Ferrari GT3 cars all entered. What's even better news is that they would all finish the race. Led by another strong performance from the Omega car, in 11th place overall and a great first drive by Mike Sargent, and one of James Andrew's stronger runs of the year. The Omega car was steady and solid from the drop of the green flag, and it showed with a great finish.

    Unfortunately a single early race accident collected all three of the other cars, giving them all setbacks of various degrees. Luckily it was somewhat minor for the Beta Team driven by Paul Hamilton and Jay Dargert and they would recover to a solid top 15 finish with 14th overall. It was a bit harder for the newly driven Gamma team in the cars first race. Matthew Overton behind the wheel and paired up with Doug Ritter. They would take a bit more damage, but also recover well for a 16th place overall finish.

    The Alpha team was not so lucky as they took the brunt of the damage in the accident caused by another car, and would have to spend 30 minutes on pit road for major repairs. To make things even more dramatic for the Alpha car there was a technical issue and Mike Tyler was unable to get in in the car properly to take over driving duties from David Anderson. However, quickly turning a negative into a positive the CMS Community rallied in a big way. After seeing a cry for help and emergency post Larry Ford jumped in and got in the car for CMS and joined David so that the car could continue and be officially scored. Dropping all the way back at one point to the last place, David and Larry overcame the odds, and drove the car back up to a 23rd place finish and salvaged some critical championship points for the Alpha car.

    Four weeks in the Alpha car now finds itself a solid top 25 in overall points of over 300 teams, with the Beta Car in the top 40 and the Omega car quickly gaining after two solid finishes in back to back weeks.

    Next up the team will head out West to California and Laguna Seca next weekend for round 5!
