    The Champion Motorsports Endurance e-Sports team will endure 27 hours of racing this weekend at the famous Nurburgring "Green Hell" circuit in an unprecedented test of team and endurance racing.

The driver lineup consists of David Anderson, Paul Hamilton, Phil Elmore, Miguel Alcrudo, James Andrew, Daniel Johnson, JT Tami and Mike Tyler.

So, 3 additional cars have made the flight to Germany, as the normal Alpha, Beta, and Omega cars will take to the track for the points race. The team finds themselves in the thick of several manufacturer, Team and Individual Championships more than halfway through the season with the Alpha Car in a team high 15th in overall points.

    Race Day is tomorrow!!! Starting shortly after 8 am CST (Chicago). follow us here for live updates. I am going to be driving to start the race and since this is a demanding, taxing track on resources, I am not going to live stream until I am out of the car. But I do expect to be live streaming some off and on throughout the 24 hours so be sure to tune in here for updates and links to that tomorrow!

    David was gridded 30th in a 55 car all GT3 split. Team made a strategy decision to start from pit lane. Even in practice we were seeing the idiots and knew this was the right call. Was DFL at the beginning, but then started passing the carnage. Lots of cars in the pits for repairs on lap 1, so David was 44th after lap 1. David is now 42nd on lap 5. He is running steady laps, and is in a nice spot without morons around him.
