AOR iRacing GTE League - Season 4
Round 11: Daytona International Speedway

In the twilight of this season, our newly crowned champion @Ycoms will take to the track as our first Double GTE Champion. Will he pull a Lewis Hamilton and basically give up? Probably not. Will he continue to smash everyone? Probably. Can he be stopped? HOPEFULLY.

This guy, right, he's led the teams championship on his own the entire way! SOMEONE STOP HIM.

He might stop himself though, he has a habit of crashing here.

Daytona & Night race goes together like Ycoms and the GTE Championship

Daytona & Day is like pineapple on pizza

did my first practice, in 38C track temp, some 40ish laps.
Down to a 1:44.1 with half a tank, but consistent pace high 44s to low 45s.

How screwed am I?

Have some bad news guys - PC blue screened on Thursday and been busy working on my actual car and called into work today and working late tomorrow I doubt I will be racing tomorrow as the PC needs a rebuild. Gutted. I'll keep you posted but doesn't look good right now.

Did a magical lap in an official practice, 1:42.03 - half a sec behind @Mike251997

Did the official race just now, which was weird. Track was cool at 27C.
Qualified P6. Got taken out in turn 1, then started recovering back into the top 10, and spun, entirely my own fault.
Fought again from mid pack up, ultimately had the most awesome battle for the last 3rd of the race, switching positions multiple times, defending and attacking hard but super clean. Was an awesome fight, and finished in P9.

So I did an official race earlier.

Pace isn't great, I suspect I will be one of the slower Pro/Am guys as per usual. The car feels so alien here. It's usually planted. Turns 1 and 5 are hellishly hard to get the car slowed down for. Turns 1 and 3, specifically on exit, the car just loses all grip.

I'm also fairly convinced that turn 6 isn't actually tarmac. It's more like ice. Or if it actually is tarmac, then maybe it's covered in black ice. At any point through that corner, from the apex of the corner, until the banking, it is possible to have a slide at any point. Many slides if you so desire.

Started 10th, finished 5th. Pace dropped a bit relatively early on because I was watching the F1 at the same time. So yeah... not feeling too optimistic about tomorrow or keeping the Pro/Am lead.

Same here Stevie. Did the race 2 hours ago. Hot as hell, 44°. And hell it was. Never felt that uncomfortable and out of pace in the Ferrari for a long time now. Let's pray for a sudden drop of the temps for tommorrow.

Also worth reminding that there is the constantly glitched yellow flat through turn 6.

Also you shouldn't be on the apron for the overtaking, or for the driving, or for the anything unless you're crossing it to pit or you're dead.
