    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.



    Pictured Above James Andrew drives the CMS Omega Ferrari GT3 to another very solid finish in back-to-back weeks!

    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!

    We are very excited to announce another great weekend of endurance racing and solid results from the cmsracing.com esports iRacing Team! This week we were in The United States for the first time this season and we would be running at the famed Road Atlanta, home of the Petit Lemans. This was would be an all GT3 field, and for the first time in the season our Alpha car would qualify for top split. With our Omega and Beta cars running in the 2nd split.

    Daniel Johnson and Doug Ritter managed to drive the Alpha car to a very solid top 20 finish, coming in 17th overall in the top split and gaining over 100 Championship points. The effort moved the Alpha car into a solid top 20 in the season standings as well which is very impressive three races in.

    The bigger story was yet another top 10 to make us have at least one of our team cars in the top 10 in every race so far this season. This time the finish would come at the hands of JT Tami and Mike Tyler. JT Drove a beautiful race and Mike made his season debut and contributed solid runs for the team as well to have a great start to his season!

    Here is a screenshot of the Omega and Beta cars at Road Atlanta!





    Congrats to the team! This week we welcome another new team member, Mike Sargent and we are considering launching a 4th car into the team stable, which will be named cmsracing.com Gamma. We are still welcoming any cms member in good standing to join us.

    This weekend's race will be at Sebring on Sunday 4/7. Come join us on the official cms discord server and get involved with the team! It's great stuff!

    All three cars come back from off the Mountain this week with incredible early season results to continue building momentum. David Anderson and Daniel Johnson would finish in 9th overall in the Alpha Car and putting the Alpha Car in the top 25 points overall in the process.

    James Andrew, Doug Ritter, and Matthew Overton drove the Omega car in it's first race of the season to a 5th place overall in the Sunday session which was really exciting to see this car in the race and doing so well it's first time out.

    The highlight of the weekend was Paul Hamilton and JT Tami putting a team high 3rd place into the Beta car in the Sunday Session. Paul and JT drove beautifully and worked brilliantly together for a great finish.

    No rest for the wicked as we are now getting ready for Round 3 at Road Atlanta this coming weekend on March 30th! More information coming soon as the team heads to the United States for the first time this year, to see how we can do on the home soil for the majority of the team.

    Congratulations to the CMS Endurance iRacing Team and the Alpha Car Driven by Drivers Paul Hamilton and Daniel Johnson for their win at Lemans in the opening round of the 2019 Season 2 iRacing VRS GT3 Endurance Series. A phenomenal result by the team and great start to the upcoming 12 week season. The newly formed 2019 roster for the Endurance Team at CMS couldn't have gotten off to a better start if they had tried with this result and it has left the entire team excited and really eager to get back out and go again at Round 2 Bathurst next weekend.



    Daniel Johnson (above) takes the Checkered Flag and historic win at Lemans for Champion Motorsports

    For Lemans the team would enter two cars. the Alpha car driven by Hamilton and Johnson. As well the second entry would be a sister Ferrari GT3, named the Beta car, driven by Matthew Overton, James Andrew, and David Anderson. The cars would be destined to be together for much of if not the full first hour of the race. Qualifying 15th and 16th on the grid, both Matthew Overton and Paul Hamilton drove excellent first stints to put the team in great position at the first round of pits stops. Matthew would lead most of the way, with Paul in close pursuit the two drivers working through traffic very well together. At pit stops they were as high as 12th place in the 40 car grid.

    Handing over to Daniel Johnson in the Alpha Car and James Andrew in the Beta car would setup second stints. Unfortunately for James Andrew he would be involved in an accident exiting the Porsche curves a few laps into his stint. This would require about 8.5 minutes of repairs on pit road and drop the Beta car out of contention but still running for what would hopefully be a run at a top 20.

    Daniel Johnson however in the Alpha car began his stint by starting to click off faster and faster laps, each time eclipsing a best and taking PB in the session. Nearing the end of Daniel's first stint he had moved the car into the top 5 and it was apparent we would be competing for the win.

    Late in the race James Andrew would hand the Beta car off to David Anderson for a final stint. Unfortunately for David and the team after climbing back to 19th overall the Beta Car's Ferrari Powered Engine would expire on the front stretch, ending our race about 10 minutes before the finish.

    On the bright side as we got to about that same point, Daniel Johnson had successfully moved into the lead and retained the lead after a late splash and go pitstop. Coming back on to the track with a comfortable lead Daniel would cruise home to a victory for the team, our first, and a phenomenal result. The second car would finish in 21st overall. The team leaves Lemans extremely excited about our potential and ready to tackle Bathurst on Saturday March 23rd.

    We are still accepting sign-ups and participants for this series. If you would like to drive, spot, test, or work in team management with the team please let us know.

    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!
