Round 4 - Virginia International Raceway

Tonight marks Round 4 of the eleventh season of UKSimRacing’s GT3 League as hosted on iRacing!

In this round our drivers head to the United States of America for the Virginia International Raceway. Abbreviated to “VIR”, the Virginia state circuit is a regular host of the IMSA SportsCar Championship and GT World Challenge America with its fast-flowing 17-corner “Full Course” layout awaiting the grid. Featuring rapid–fire elevation changes; numerous blind apexes; and the classic “Oak Tree” hairpin which precedes the back-straight, the track shall undoubtedly push our drivers to the limit prior to the mid-season break!

In the ELITE class, Erik Røseth continues to lead by a steady margin of 14 points over close rival Rhys Saunders. However, with Saunders taking his first victory at MotorLand Aragón and eager for more, could we start to see the points gap between the two close? Or will Røseth be able to maintain his advantage going into the break?

In the PRO class, Aaron Macgregor’s advantage has increased to 12 points despite him finishing just off of the podium last week. Darren Sharples heads up the chasing pack, but with the pace so close between drivers, can anyone find a way to break clear and become the number one contender to hunt down Macgregor?

In the AM class, in securing his first win of the season last round, Jack Whyborn has taken the lead by 12 points over Steiner Sanni. Sanni will be determined to show his difficulties in qualifying at Aragón were just a blip tonight. Also watch out for Neal Smith who sits a further six points behind and is still chasing his first win!

Who shall go into the mid-season break with momentum on their side? Tune in and find out!
