Article and Images by Thomas Fisher March 5th, 2023 The 5th of March marked the date for the opening race of the 2023 iRacing Team endurance championship (iRTES). With a fantastic grid of 38 cars taking the green flag, the field set off for three hours of intense action around the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. Starting at the head of the action was the LMDh class driving the brand new BMW v8 Hybrids. This new class replaces the outgoing Daytona Prototype class, completing the lap just a few seconds faster than its predecessor. The No 66 Penguin R/C Simulation took pole in LMDh with a time of 1:31.03, a tenth of a second ahead of second place Obsidian Racing in their No 13 BMW. The rest of the top eight were separated by a tiny margin of just three tenths of a second. With > more

by Tim Collier As the sun was setting on Daytona International Speedway, the Champion Motorsports GT3 Sprint Series was wrapping up a tremendous season of racing with one last race to decide the season champions. Coming into the race, Michael Parker held a 11-point margin over Miguel Colon, with Chris Brunnemer not out of the hunt for the Pro title. In the AM class it was Steven Yanni with consistent finishes throughout the season holding off Nick Kuhn who was only 16 points back. With the race length of 75 minutes, it was important to not only finish but finish well. As is always the case at Daytona whether it’s a stock car or sports cars, the margins were slim in qualifying with Victor Tanaka taking the pole position by 0.171 seconds over AM pole sitter Scott Kessel with Parker and Richard McClure also in the 1:43’s > more

by Tim Collier The Champion Motorsports GT3 Sprint season has been spectacular, with the level of racing and competition, as well as field sizes well above the past few years. As the drivers arrived at Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin it was apparent that another large field would mean that qualifying was more important than ever. At the top of the qualifying chart was DJ Alessandrini putting his Audi out front with a lap time of 2:03.586 which was more than half a second faster than the second place qualifier Tyler Pinheiro, who was also the AM Class pole winner. Behind them in the second row were Chris Brunnemer and the Pro Class Points leader Michael Parker. The AM class points leader coming into the race, Steven Yanni, would be starting third in class and 13th overall. The field of 49 cars heads thru Turn 1 at the > more

by Tim Collier With 5 races in the bag, the Champion Motorsports GT3 Sprint Series headed North to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (formerly Mosport Park), a multi-track motorsports facility located in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada. It was one of the first permanent road racing circuits in Canada and has played host to various high-level motorsports events including the Canadian Grand Prix and the 24 Hours of Mosport endurance race. Both Pro and AM class drivers were equally fast in practice, and with 38 cars in qualifying, starting spots were incredibly important. In the AM class, Edward Nelson would grab the pole and the 8th overall starting spot. In Pro, Miguel Colon laid down a quick lap of 1:15.430, taking the overall pole position and clear track ahead at the start.

by Tim Collier After four races, the Champion Motorsports GT3 Sprint series packed their bags and headed to North America for the second half of the season, as all five remaining races on the Season One schedule won’t require oceanic travel. This week, the teams headed down to the kudzu-covered state of Georgia to visit the world-renowned Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta for the second endurance length race of the season. With the Daytona 24 Hour race in the rearview mirrors, everyone shook off the dust and filled the garages with 51 entries, the second largest field of the season. With 22 Pro teams, the battle for the overall Pole Position was fierce but in the end Miguel Colon would take the spot with a time of 1:17.420, edging out DJ Alessandrini by a mere 0.014 seconds! In the AM class, Tyler Pinheiro would start 10th overall and > more
