iRacing Bathurst 1000 Champions!
The iRacing Official Bathurst 1000 special event was run on the weekend, with both the AU and US timeslots. For Sam Blacklock and Brady Meyers, the decided to not only do one, but to do both timeslots. The earlier AU timeslot they ran a solid race, other than some early braking problems with Brady, but were able to finish a solid 2nd place.
In the later US timeslot, the race would kick off at just before midnight for Sam & Brady, however they were up for the challenge. As it turned out, the SOF was stronger in this timeslot, and qualifying got off to a great start with Brady doing an incredibly quick 2:03:306, beating his own qualifying record by over 2 tenths. This would be enough to take pole by a comfortable margin of 1.4s to the next car.
Sam would start the car with a double stint and began pulling out a gap to the cars behind before handing the car over to Brady with a whopping 50 second margin over P2. Brady continued to pull margin on the cars behind, completing a triple stint before handing back over to Sam with a 2.5 minute lead and thus with more than a 1 lap lead over the following car. Sam would go on to finish the race, coming home with a margin of over 3 minutes to the next car, and become iRacing Bathurst 1000 Champions!
