Koch Takes Wild Win at Virtual VIR
Penultimate Lap Skirmish Sends Krohn’s BMW Spinning, Koch’s Ford to Victory

 
May 28, 2020
Staff Report
IMSA Wire Service

 

 
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Kenton Koch has been one of the fastest drivers in the IMSA iRacing Pro Series.

 
Thursday night on the virtual VIRginia International Raceway circuit, Koch finally translated that speed to a victory. After starting the 90-minute Michelin Presents IMSA iRacing at VIR event from the pole position, Koch led a vast majority of the race in the No. 80 Kenton Koch Racing Ford GT.

 
He led throughout his opening stint and re-emerged as the leader following the pit-stop sequence and competition caution period. In fact, he pretty much led the entire race all the way to the second-to-last lap.
That’s when Jesse Krohn battled his way past in the No. 24 BMW IMSA Team Black M8 GTE in Turn 2, relegating Koch’s pink and black Ford to second place. But it wasn’t over yet.

 
Just before the white flag was displayed to start the final lap, Koch managed to get a strong run down the backstretch, making it all the way to Krohn’s rear bumper. And while he didn’t “mean” to do it, the ensuing contact sent Krohn’s BMW spinning off course while Koch’s Ford cruised to victory.

 
“I mean I hate for it to be that way,” Koch said. “Unfortunately, I got in there a little hot and there was definitely a little bit of netcode between us there. I didn’t mean to do that intentionally at all. It was good fun, but man, my heart was pounding for that entire hour and a half. That was good fun and the paint job was good luck this time.”

 
It was the first IMSA iRacing Pro Series victory for Ford, coming one race after Porsche picked up its first series victory. The first three races of the season were won by BMWs.

 
Speaking of Porsches and BMWs, Shane van Gisbergen has experienced both in the IMSA iRacing Pro Series. The New Zealander previously finished on the podium earlier this season aboard the No. 97 AIM Vasser Sullivan BMW M8 GTE.

 
For tonight’s race, the Australian Supercars star and multi-time Rolex 24 At Daytona starter switched to a Porsche. The move paid off, putting “The Giz” back on the podium with another second-place result in the bright yellow and black AVS entry.

 
“It’s really a different car,’ said van Gisbergen. “We obviously don’t have a Lexus representative in the game so we run what we think is going to be best. It was cool, all the cars are quite different.

 
“Obviously, I can’t run the Ford due to the conflict with Holden. That’s what (AVS teammate) Jack (Hawksworth) was in and he found that to be the fastest car, so it was sort of switching between a manufacturer brands there, but the Porsche seems to be the most comfortable and easy to drive. I’ve been struggling with qualifying and the BMW guys really know how to qualify good in that car and I struggled with it. So, starting up front certainly helped us.”

 
Van Gisbergen prevailed in a spirited late-race battle with Argentine racer Agustin Canapino in the No. 66 Juncos Racing Ferrari 488. Nevertheless, Canapino’s stellar performance netted Ferrari’s first podium in IMSA iRacing Pro Series competition and also was the first race to feature three different manufacturers on the podium.

 
“It was a crazy race from the start after a Porsche spun in front of me, causing an accident where I sustained some damage and lost some positions,” Canapino said. “After that I restarted in ninth and picked up the rhythm, despite having to pit early for new tires. We had some great overtaking moves and great pace, putting us in the Top 3. I was able to get very close to Shane and had some great battles with him until the end. A podium finish for us in a Ferrari is fantastic and a tremendous achievement and I am so happy to have Ricardo Juncos and my team by my side through all of their help."

 
With as little as 10 minutes left in the race, it looked like there could be two BMWs on the podium. With less than two minutes left, it looked like BMW might win its fourth race in five tries.

 
But late incidents wiped out would-be podium runs for both Krohn and points leader Bruno Spengler in the No. 7 BMW IMSA Team Red entry. Spengler recovered from his spin with just under 10 minutes remaining to finish fifth, one spot behind Shinya Michimi in the No. 86 Meyer Shank Racing Porsche 911 RSR.

 
As a result, Spengler continues to lead the IMSA iRacing Pro Series point standings by 31 markers, 153-122, over Nicky Catsburg heading into the season-ending race at the virtual Watkins Glen International circuit two weeks from tonight.

 
In the second round of the IMSA iRacing Challenge Series earlier this afternoon also at VIR, Greg Liefooghe took the victory in the No. 119 Stephen Cameron Racing Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport.
A longtime IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge competitor, Liefooghe held off Nealson Lawrence by 2.753 seconds for the win. Lawrence came within a second-and-a-half with eight laps remaining when Liefooghe was challenged by a car resisting to be lapped. While there was contact between Liefooghe and the lapped car that sent the latter off track, there was little to no damage on the No. 119 Porsche and Liefooghe pulled away again from Lawrence to win.

 
Round 3 of the IMSA iRacing Challenge Series will take place on Thursday, June 11 at 3 p.m. ET prior to the IMSA iRacing Pro Series event at 6 p.m. Both iRacing championships will reach their conclusion that day at Watkins Glen International.
 
Three Takeaways: Michelin Presents IMSA iRacing at VIR

 
June 2, 2020
Staff Report
IMSA Wire Service
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Late-race drama, a new winning manufacturer and a quest for the inaugural, virtual championship were just a few of the highlights from last Thursday’s Michelin Presents IMSA iRacing at VIRginia International Raceway.

 
With only one race remaining in the six-round IMSA iRacing Pro Series – Konica Minolta Presents IMSA iRacing at Watkins Glen International on Thursday, June 11 – there’s more of an idea about what to watch for … Or is there?

 
Following the penultimate round last week, the championship isn’t settled and there seems to be more manufacturer parity in the series than ever before. Here’s a look at some of what we learned in Round 5.

 
Championship Scenario
We can definitively say a BMW driver will win the IMSA iRacing Pro Series title. It’s going to either be Bruno Spengler or Nicky Catsburg. However, the math does show how each driver would need to perform at Watkins Glen to win.

 
Catsburg can overcome his current, 31-point deficit and win the championship if he wins the race and Spengler finishes no higher than fifth. Should Spengler finish fifth, the two drivers would tie.

 
A note to remember is that the IMSA iRacing Pro Series allows each driver to omit his lowest finish of the six rounds and only tally up the five best results. Currently, Spengler’s poorest finish was sixth place in Round 3 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, while Catsburg struggled in the most recent VIR round, finishing 28th.  

 
Manufacturer Parity
It may have taken five races, but Ford, Ferrari and Porsche finally found a way to topple BMW from the podium. BMW had a stranglehold on the IMSA iRacing competition initially, sweeping the podium in the first three races. And while the manufacturer didn’t win in Round 4 at Road America, it did finish second and third.

 
However, that podium luck went missing at VIR and Spengler was the highest finishing BMW in fifth. Winner Kenton Koch piloted his pink Ford GT to the win, New Zealander Shane van Gisbergen swapped to a Porsche 911 RSR from a BMW earlier in the morning to finish second and Argentinian Agustin Canapino earned Ferrari’s first podium of the championship in third.

 
Which of the four manufacturers will have the final say at Watkins Glen? We’ll have to wait until next Thursday to find out.

 
Juncos Delivers
While Juncos Racing competed in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in 2019, the team had not joined the field for 2020. However, the team has been participating in the IMSA iRacing Pro Series and showed up in a big way last Thursday.

 
Delivering Ferrari’s best finish of the championship in third was Agustin Canapino in the No. 66 Ferrari Ford GT with the familiar Juncos Racing green, orange and white livery. Juncos has joined in several other virtual racing competitions and to find success in IMSA’s series meant a lot to Team Owner Ricardo Juncos.

 
“Tonight's IMSA race at VIR was truly amazing,” said Juncos following the race. “Agustin Canapino did an incredible job putting the No. 66 Juncos Racing eSports Ferrari on the podium for the first time. This was a great moment for our team and Agustin as we put in a lot of time on the setup together. Tonight's performance shows what we have been working so hard to achieve with our eSports program."

 
Konica Minolta Presents IMSA iRacing at Watkins Glen International marks the final round of the IMSA iRacing Pro Series. The 90-minute race on Thursday, June 11, will stream live beginning at 6 p.m. ET on the iRacing Facebook and YouTube channels with the voice of IMSA Radio, John Hindhaugh, leading the race commentary.

 
The Torque Show will stream a pre-race showing at 5 p.m. on its Facebook page.

    GT CELEBRATION Race Series Sets 2020 Season, GT Tour Adds GT4 Class in the 12-Race Campaign

    For Immediate Release
    GT CELEBRATION™ Race Series Sets 2020 Schedule,
    GT Tour Adds GT4 class in the 12-Race Campaign
    Exciting GT racing with a great atmosphere for Bronze-rated competitors
    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (June 2, 2020)– GT Celebration Race Series, the six-weekend GT3 sports car
    campaign for bronze-rated FIA drivers, has finalized its 2020 road racing schedule following the COVID-
    19 pandemic state closures with the addition of the season finale date on November 20-22 in the newly-
    established sports car tour.
    In addition, Rob Morgan, CEO and Founder of the GT Celebration Race Series, announced the
    expansion of the series’ competition divisions with two classes including GT3 (with Super Trofeo) and
    GT4 machinery in the 12-race series. GT Celebration Race Series has driver and car registration portals
    open with online registration through the series official website, www.gtcelebration.com. The GT
    Celebration Race Series will partner with the Porsche Trophy West USA events in 2020.
    “We ran an invitational event in May at The Thermal Club that was extremely successful as our kickoff
    weekend,” said Morgan. “We wanted to give our competitors a chance to see how our GT Celebration
    Race Series was operated. Qualifying was very close, just .052 seconds with the top three cars. And the
    racing in the two events was exciting and competitive. It was a great start for a first-time series. Now, we
    have prepared the drivers, teams and sponsors what to expect for the opening official series event on
    July 17- 19 at the Utah Motorsports Campus.
    “We had planned on running GT4 cars at Road America and COTA this year.However, due to COVID-19,
    the schedule has been pushed further back and has given us more time to prepare for the season.Given
    that, we decided to go ahead and add the GT4 class for the entire 12-race series.We have found a
    platform for the FIA Bronze-rated drivers with retired GT3 and GT4 sports cars with a fun atmosphere for
    series racers and teams. Our staff is experienced and respected throughout the motorsports industry. The
    GT Celebration Race Series provides a great racing program for competitors not interested in the pro
    levels at IMSA or SRO. The inaugural season will be enjoyable and exciting.”
    The GT Celebration season finale will be held on Nov. 20-22 in a southwest location to be announced in
    the near future.

      SRO E-SPORT GT SERIES

    Deletraz captures Pro win for Porsche, Kammerer leads McLaren Silver sweep as SRO E-Sport GT Series tackles Barcelona

    • Louis Deletraz gives Porsche maiden win in Pro Series race
    • Arthur Kammerer leads McLaren top-four sweep in Silver Series
    • Voting set to open for location of next event

     

    The SRO E-Sport GT Series delivered another double dose of sim racing action at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, with Porsche ace Louis Deletraz (Pro) and McLaren's Arthur Kammerer (Silver) taking top honours at the Spanish circuit. 

    Deletraz had already impressed by scoring points in each of the previous three events and came agonisingly close to sealing victory last time out at the Nurburgring. The youngster scored a richly deserved win in today's race, resisting significant pressure throughout the one-hour Pro Series contest to capture a maiden series triumph for Porsche. 

    Starting from pole in his GPX Racing-liveried machine, Deletraz maintained the advantage into turn one ahead of fellow Porsche man Federico Leo. The Italian was making his first appearance in the series as a wildcard and showed instant speed at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. 

    While there was contact further back the leading runners were unaffected and quickly settled into a rhythm, with Deletraz heading a three-car pack consisting of Leo, Lorenzo Marcucci (Audi) and Arthur Rougier (Audi). The majority of the race ran in this order, with overtaking proving tricky at the Spanish circuit. 

    When a move came, it was expertly executed. Marcucci got a run on Leo on the approach to turn 10 and forced the Porsche to hug the inside line as they approached the apex. This gave Marcucci a significantly better exit and the Audi was able to sweep past and into second spot. 

    While his rivals squabbled over position Deletraz made his escape, establishing a gap of two seconds that would prove crucial over the final few laps. Marcucci made progress, but Deletraz had enough in hand to win by a little under a second from the Audi racer. 

    Leo completed the podium after a fine showing, though as a wildcard the Italian was not eligible to score championship points. Rougier was fourth ahead of Ivan Pareras, ensuring that a trio of Audis joined two Porsches among the top-five. 

    Dan Wells was classified sixth, the best result this season for the championship’s leading Lamborghini representative. Behind him, Ezequiel Perez Companc (Mercedes-AMG), David Fumanelli (Ferrari), Nicolas Hillebrand‏ (Ferrari) and Andy Soucek completed the top-10. David Perel, who dropped from sixth on the road to 11th following a 30-second post-race penalty, took the final point thanks to wildcard Leo finishing third.

    By winning today's contest, Deletraz moves to the top of the Pro Series standings with 59 points, 10 clear of Marcucci. Ben Barnicoat slips to third after a difficult race at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, while consistent performer Pareras jumps to fourth thanks to another strong finish. 

     

    While it was Porsche and Audi that dominated the Pro contest, McLaren equipment was unstoppable in the Silver Series. Arthur Kammerer earned his first win of the season at the wheel of the 720S GT3, jumping ahead of poleman Patrick Selva at the start and keeping his cool throughout the race. Kammerer needed to be faultless, with no margin for error as Selva looked to reclaim the lead, and delivered an inch-perfect performance to claim victory.     

    Nils Naujoks took third place in his McLaren, charging past the Lamborghini of Kamil Franczak shortly before the half-way mark. This freed him up to hunt down Selva and, by the closing stages, Naujoks was right on his fellow McLaren driver's tail. The two fought until the final corner, with Selva just hanging on to take runner-up spot. The McLaren of Jura Petritchenko also passed Franczak to complete a dominant top-four sweep for the British marque – and ensure significant success ballast next time out. 

    After fifth-placed Franczak, Jan-Marcel Dietrich (Porsche) was sixth ahead of Spa winner Andrea Capoccia (Audi). Chris Hoeke (Porsche), Tobias Pfeffer (Audi) and David Tonizza (Ferrari) completed the top-10, the latter extending his record of scoring at every race. This was not enough to maintain his championship lead, however, with Selva now top of the table on 45 points. Kammerer heads the chasing pack on 43, while Tonizza slips to third with 32 points.   

    Organised in collaboration with Kunos Simulazioni and Ak Informatica, the SRO E-Sport GT Series is staged using Assetto Corsa Competitzione, the official video game of GT World Challenge Powered by AWS. The Pro and Silver Series will conclude their five-round campaigns on 21 June at a venue to be decided by an online fan poll, with Bathurst, Kyalami, Laguna Seca and Suzuka up for selection. Voting will take place across the SRO social media channels and is open from 21.00 CET tonight (31 May) until Friday 5 June at 20.00. 

    Where the action moves to next remains to be seen. But, with four world-class circuits to choose from, there is no question that round five will deliver another must-see sim racing contest as the SRO E-Sport GT Series reaches its climax.
