    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.

All CMS/TXL iRacers are welcome to become a part of the team as we are continuing to accept drivers from the community to drive one of our Ferrari GT3 cars in the upcoming iRacing 2019 Season 2 VRS GT3 Endurance Series!

    Rather you are able to run full-time or part-time, let us know if you are interested. The team will field up to 3 cars in the VRS endurance championship for Season 2, races are on Saturday and/or Sunday afternooons in the USA, and UK Evenings, and are 3 hours in length. We will field a minimum of 2 drivers per car and a maximum of 3. The goal and intent of the team is to have fun first and foremost, but also to represent the overall Champion Motorsports/TXL community and do our best in the GT3 Endurance Season Championship. Our focus is all about team, so we will gear our driver assignments and entries each week to the maximum chemistry and performance we think we can achieve for the team championship standings.

    As drivers are able to participate on a full or part time basis we will look at the upcoming schedule from week to week and determine if we will be fielding a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 3 cars.

    From there we will help get you started. Also this is meant to be a community fun effort, so in typical CMS Gentleman fashion we welcome all skill levels and we will work as a team to assign drivers appropriately on race day to a car.

    Furthermore we are asking and encouraging existing CMS members that are part of sub teams such as Longhorn Racing, All Balls Racing, Puffin Racing, Can-Am Racing, and others to consider joining us on this Super Set team to help promote simracing and the Champion Motorsports community.

    As such for this season we will all be running similar CMS Livery Paint Schemes and driving under the CMSRACING.COM team names within iRacing. All drivers for this season will compete in the Ferrari GT3 car.

    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!
