Race Report by Tim Collier

January 24, 2021 – With two months off between seasons, the atmosphere was electric as the new season of sportscar racing took the green flag, kicking off a six-race season of multi-class racing! In what has been a staple at Champion Motorsports with their Wednesday night iRacing series, this season saw a change with the GTE class cars on track with GT3 class cars, where patience and cooperation were key to a good night of racing for all.

Qualifying

In the 2 lap solo qualifying session, Tyler Campbell would take the pole position in the GT3 class over second-place Marc Johnson, with last year’s GT4 champion Kurt Polter close behind. This class would be competitive, and it was apparent with the top 5 qualifiers within a quarter of a second of each other!

Season 5, Round 2 – Misano

Race Report by Mark Dizon

November 9, 2020 – It was a very challenging second round of multi-class ACC racing at Misano World Circuit with heavy rain conditions during the race weekend. Teams contended with poor visibility and a very wet track while the rain showed no signs of relief. Both races splits saw plenty of drama and action especially during race start in sector 1 Variante Del Parco turns 2 and 3.

Split 1

Hamza Gulza displayed a commanding performance at Misano in his #14 Bentley Continental GT3 winning sprints race 1 and 2 as well as securing pole positions in each race. He also achieved the fastest lap of race 2 with a lap time of 1:45.786.

Josh Staffin #23 Lexus RC F GT3 secured the second-place podium in race 1 followed by Matheus Freitas #728 Mercedes-AMG GT3 with the third-place finish. Josh Staffin took the fastest lap of race 1 […]

NARS Autumn Starts Retro

October 10, 2019 – Race 1 of the NAR Autumn Series for rFactor 2 was held on the sunny sands of Bridgehampton. Each NARS series typically includes one “throw back track” but this time around it opened with Lilski’s ported AC masterpiece, Bridgehampton. Coupled with the new hypercar McLaren Senna and the favorite GT3s, the opening round was fast-paced. Real fast-paced. 

Qualifying pole was won by Greg Hall in the hypercar, with Jon Uyan setting the pole pace for the GT3s.

For the always precarious standing start, the McLaren Senna’s were predictably off like a rocket followed by the GT3s. There were no (serious) incidents between hypercars and GT3s but the GT3s had a tussle early on and several drivers has to park their cars for the night due to incident or mechanical damage. At the flag, Greg Hall picked-up where he left […]

NARS GT3’s at NJMSP

August 29, 2019 – The NARS GT3s followed-up last weeks Flatsix race with their own brand of excitement. In the 15-minute sprint race, it was Jon Uyan, Don Fryman, and Greg Hall in Group A. Group B winners were Brian Hall, Derek Steffeck, and Thomas DiLibero. Once the grid top 8 were inverted, JT Tami and Norm Graf were on the front row.

Another “Hall Day” at GT3 Autopolis

August 2, 2019 – At the end, it was Greg Hall taking first place (again!) in Group A, and Brian Hall (again!) taking the win in Group B. But with the competition at the NARS Summer Series GT3 race at Japan’s Autopolis putting on a real show, the winner wasn’t a lock until the very end. Ben Dutton took the pole with a very fast 1:04.781 qualifying run followed by Colin Moore, Adam Baldwin, Greg Hall, and Jason Whitfield with a seperation of only .025 seconds amongst the top five qualifiers! Ben proved the quali time was no fluke by taking the win in the 15 minute race with Jon Uyan grabbing second and Norm Graf in third. For the 45-minute feature race, Greg Hall took the win while Jason (second) and Adam (third) battled and banged their […]
