Best Porsche 911 RSR concludes spectacular online race in fifth
The competing Porsche works drivers became entangled in collisions amongst the 47-strong line-up of online racers and were unable to place further up the field.
In the IMSA sim racing competition and the popular iRacing platform, racing drivers around the world pit themselves against each other on home simulators. Güven (Turkey) gave a clear demonstration of his talent as a simulator driver during practice with fast laps. Works driver Laurens Vanthoor (Belgium) and Nick Tandy (Great Britain) were involved in several accidents during the 90-minute race and concluded the round on positions 23 and 25 respectively. Factory driver Patrick Long (USA), who streamed his race in the simulator live, took the flag in position 32.
Comments on the race
Nick Tandy (Porsche 911 RSR #911): It’s a shame because I’d worked out a good strategy. After the mandatory yellow phase midway through the race I wanted to attack with fresh tyres, but it was all for nothing because another competitor nudged me before the restart and my car ended up on its roof. Congratulations to Ayhancan on his strong performance.
