No surprise the REVO Satellite Team of Paul Darling and David Williams again pulled out the win, climbing to a lead of nearly a minute at one point in the race. Three-in-a-row for REVO Satellite and now the discussion begins if anyone can take home the top spot at any track the rest of the 2021 iRTES year.

Second place was won by the Imperial Motorsports – Shake Texas Team of Chris Paiz and Leif Peterson. After some first lap woes, they stormed back to the podium […]

VWSC 2.4 Hours of Le Mans

Feature by George Angelidis

September 12, 2020 – Le Mans holds a special place in our hearts. More than any other race, it’s a crucible in which new technology is forged, a technology that’s directly relevant to the cars you or I drive on the road. And for 2 hours and 20 minutes (out of a 2h:24min race), this year’s race belonged to Marco Antonio Rodriguez, which put on a fine show with his Oreca LMP2 race car.

Qualifying ended with 16 cars on the grid, led by Miguel Antonio Alcrudo, who was joined on the front row by Greg Mac, and points leader JT Tami right behind them. The start was fast and frenzied, but clean as the front six fell in line and tried to break away from the rest of the pack. With only 8 laps to race, the push to the front eventually separated the front three from the rest of the field.

A final lap battle, with side by side racing in the Porsche Curves, ended with Alcrudo taking the win by a mere 0.379 seconds over Scott, with Tami right on his bumper. The finished as […]
