A huge congratulations to the iRacing Road Warrior Series overall points top 10 . . . and to everyone who battled it out, hunting for this year’s Road Warrior crown, from Phillip Island to Circuit of the Americas, in everything from a Skip Barber F2000 to a Williams-Toyota FW31 and Corvette C6.R.
1. Aday Coba Lopez (3035 points): Iberia Club’s Lopez was the class of the field all year often winning races by nearly a lap or more. He only made 20 race starts, but he won 13 of those.
