This was one of the most fun races I've personally had in I-Racing.  Had very close good racing and not a single bump and I'm pretty sure I spent all 45 minutes within a second of a car for position. Did have to go off twice or nearly come to a stop to avoid spinning cars. The track is definitely the hardest one to pass on I've driven.  And we were so close to making the starting line without any contact.  I'm proof that someone with zero i-racing (or video game at all) experience can spend $500 and a month and get into the top ten in these league races.  I doubt I'll ever find the speed to be "up front" but the 7-10th battles this week were awesome.

It's bound to happen.  You smoked the field at Road Atlanta in the Miata.  The Miata has an advantage in the twisty bits while the Street Stock will excel in a straight line.  VIR South is definitely more wide open than Road Atlanta.

Most of that came from the shorter pitstop for the Miata.

 

At VIR both cars take almost the same amount of fuel. Within a gallon or two.
