Vulcan Sim Racing Weekly – Edition #2: Full prep ahead!
Welcome back to Vulcan Sim Racing Weekly where I, Tom Male, take you on a tour of the ins and outs of what goes on at Vulcan Sim Racing during the course of the week. I hope you enjoy!
It was full steam ahead with Vulcan’s prep this week, a break from endurance races for last week meaning all focus shifted to future races, more notably the ERO 12hrs of Le Mans, a highly anticipated event. Vulcan currently sits 10th in the standings for ERO after picking up 6 points in the 8hrs of Nurburgring last time out. While it is a tough league, with some of the quickest iRacing teams, a top 5 spot in the championship should still be possible. Running the, as of current build, uncompetitive Ferrari 488 GTE, to be up in the order along with the quicker Porsche 911 RSR and BMW M8 is a promising sign of what’s to come at Le Mans.
Also this week, we had a few league races, with Dom Forster putting in yet another consistent performance in the CXR League in P11 at Zolder to place him P7 in the championship, his consistent results paying off. Also in league racing was Steve Leahy and Luke McKeown in the ARL championship. Luke performed brilliantly in race 1, placing P4 in Pro class, whereas Steven ended up on his roof, wheels helplessly spinning at turn 1 at Monza, the victim of a freak low-speed roll-over accident. Despite the race 1 drawback, he came back handsomely to finish P4 AM class and currently leads the championship by 9 points! Luke was on for a top 7 finish before being turned through Ascari, dropping him down the order. Finally, in WGTC it was a night to forget for Mo Janko, the victim of multiple crashes and spins from a tightly packed field at Monza. He finished outside the top 30 in all three races, with his place at the top of the PRO-AM being lost. Things can only get better from here though as Mo is a bloody quick driver and will no doubt surge back to the front of the field.
