Double Bathurst 12 Hour Finish
The iRacing Bathurst 12 Hour was a tough race and one full of attrition as it often is. Both the Logitech G and ASTRO Gaming Ferrari's were caught out in a few incidents across the journey, and we wore the battle scars as many did when the chequered flag fell.
In the case of the Logitech G car, a front row start and setting the fastest lap of the race from Andrew Kahl showed the potential was there, however you also need a bit of luck to win at the mountain. Incidents would hit the team predominantly in the fourth hour when avoiding lapped traffic, and again later in the race where aero damage would kerb our available performance. In the end it was a very good recovery, to claim 7th place when dropping to around 20th and multiple laps down was a great achievement, as is making the finish of such a tough event. Congrats to Andrew, Simon & Vedran on this performance.
For the ASTRO Gaming Ferrari it was the debut in the top split of a special event, and the goal at the start of the race was to finish. They had their troubles particularly early on, but showed great grit and determination to see the race through and be rewarded with a top 15 finish of the 31 cars that competed in GT3. Well done to Dayne, Ethan and Sam on a job well done and achieving the goal set.
Big congratulations to the class winners Pure Racing Team & Williams Racing Esports, and to all podium finishers.
