VRS Coanda Simsport

The VRS Coanda Simsport quartet of Tommy Ostgaard, Josh Rogers, Martin Kronke, and Mitchell deJong proved victorious in the top split of this year’s iRacing 24 Hours of Daytona. The #8 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Daytona Prototype completed 834 laps of the iconic Daytona International Speedway road course, defeating Gresham Wagner, Braden Eves, and Andre Castro of SuperSport Racing by three laps in the virtual version of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship opener.

The Apex Racing Team entry of Peter Berryman, Kevin Ellis Jr., Michele Costantini, and Yohann Harth completed the overall podium in the top split. In GTE, the Team Redline entry of Max Benecke, Max Wenig, Jonas Wallmeier, and Gianni Vecchio scored a one-lap victory over Sebastian Job, Graham Carroll, and Patrik Holzmann of Red Bull Racing Esports. Top GT3 honors went to RS Competition’s two-man team of Lasse Bak and Martin Christensen.

The 2020 iRacing 24 Hours of Daytona was the largest in iRacing history. It saw 6,290 combined drivers complete over a million laps across 31 splits in the two event start times. As always, professional racers were a big part of the event, with former real-world Daytona 24 winner AJ Allmendinger among the headliners in the first segment, and Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin and NASCAR Cup Series veteran Parker Kligerman in the broadcasted split in the second segment. Allmendinger’s team finished second in GTE in its split, while McLaughlin and Kligerman finished fifth and 11th in GTE, respectively, in the broadcast split.

Racing for Charity

Many iRacers used the event as a way of raising money for charitable causes. Teammates Ian Plasch and Keenan Kusan raised over $4,300 USD for children’s hospitals through Extra-Life with solo runs, with Plasch’s 824 solo laps setting a new event record. Rence Brown also ran 787 solo laps in GT3 while raising money for Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors, while David Schildhouse raised more than $2,100 AUD for World Wildlife Fund Australia.

Among the thousands of teams entered in this year’s event was the return of an iRacing staff team. Team Staff Infection 2.0 featured driving appearances from Kevin Bobbitt, Greg West, Alex Horn, Nick Leep, Alex Saunders, and Nate DeSelms, and finished 37th after an overnight incident.
