Best Porsche 911 RSR finishes finale in second
The Porsche 911 RSR has achieved another podium result at the final round of the IMSA iRacing Pro Series. The No. 97 car driven by New Zealander Shane van Gisbergen finished on second place at the virtual racetrack of Watkins Glen (USA).
Taking the flag in twelfth at Watkins Glen, the American Shinya Mishimi concluded his IMSA iRacing Pro Series third overall. Taking up the 90-minute race from the tenth grid spot, Van Gisbergen laid the foundation for his podium result with a clean drive in the early stages of the race. The touring car ace from New Zealand remained unscathed in the hefty duels and worked his way up the order during the first 45 minutes to fifth place. The 31-year-old turned the fastest race lap in a time of 1:42.899 minutes. Factory driver Vanthoor finally had Lady Luck on his side at the final round of the virtual IMSA racing series. With a clever strategy and consistently fast lap times, the Belgian worked his way from eleventh into the top ten to achieve his best result in the IMSA iRacing Pro Series.
