WWZ Series 1 Race 5 at Imola

By Chip Witt, Redwood Region PCA

On Friday, December 11th, the fifth and final race of the Wild West Zones Series 1 was held at Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari (a.k.a. Imola).

All driver classes joined on-track together in a single 23-car grid comprised of Pro and Club drivers in the 911 RSR and Sport and Challenge drivers in the Ruf 12RT Track, creating some incredible multi-class action.

After the dust settled following the 40 minute, 24 lap slug-fest, Dave Schwartz came out with the overall and Pro class victories.

Brian Granger finished second overall and walked away with the Club class win.

Zone Group 3 & 12 held their 5th race at Imola and it was an incident-filled event!

Qualifying

Heat Race

From the green flag, the 30-minute heat race found the top-3 fighting closely with each other until the round of pitstops where Jacob had a slow stop. Robert and Rafael fought tooth and nail to the end until they came up behind a backmarker.

At Rivazza, Robert successfully cleared the backmarker. Rafael tried to Read More >

Zone 1 Road America Race

By Anker Berg-Sonne, Northeast Region PCA

The ZG1 Championship Begins

The first championship point race for the Zone 1 Wildcats was run Friday, December 5th, at Road America.

Road America is a fun, fast course with a couple of very tricky corners. Corner 3 requires a lot of braking and patience to hit the apex and track out. Failure puts you in the grass or a plodding exit speed leading on to the Moraine Sweep.

Corner 5 has a downhill approach and punishes late braking by putting you in the runout, as does corner six, where you end up in the grass and inevitably Read More >

Let’s Do Some Math

By Anker Berg-Sonne, Northeast Region PCA

As a beginner iRacer, one of the more depressing experiences is to have the leaders of the race lap you once, twice, or maybe more times. This may tempt you to try to drive faster and take more risks, but I think you will change your mind after this small math exercise!

The average lap time for the courses we normally drive in the PCA Sim Racing League is one to two minutes, and we typically run right around 40 minutes or 20 to 40 laps. So how much slower than the leaders can you drive Read More >
