Endurance sim racing. Is there anything better than getting a group of friends together and sharing the same car for 24 hours in the ultimate test of speed and stamina?
We think not.
Redemption was the theme of the 2016 iRacing Daytona 24 Hours race. In 2015, Team ISRTV.com came within 33 minutes of a podium finish in the second split. But Lady Luck can be cruel and we were forced to settle with a 7th place finish after nearly not putting a wheel wrong the entire time.
Since nearly 24 hours of flaw free driving can’t be ignored, the gang is back together for 2016. Joining Darin and John again was the Do Carmo brothers, Fabio and Bruno. The Brazilian brothers are good at setups and fast has hell. Also joining the team was Darin’s childhood friend, Scott Holmes. Scott is new to the sim racing game but has gotten up to speed quickly both online and off, building up a really nice triple screen rig.
Besides the addition of Scott, the other difference from last year was our car of choice. We decided to go for overall victory in the new-ish C7 Corvette Daytona Prototype.
With our team, car and cameras ready to roll, we were ready for the 2016 iRacing Daytona 24 Hours race.
We hope you enjoy this behind the scenes look at it.
