Through the night of Daytona

On last Sunday [THR] held his second celebration race around it´s second anniversary.

We drove the the 24 hours of Daytona with the ACL GTR Mod cars compressed in 2.4 hours.
We had both racer teams and solo racers at the start.

It was the second race simulating 24 hours in THR history.
And the second celebration race, was as good as the first one.

We had both racer teams and solo racers at the start.

The teams had to make a driver change during the race, which had to last 180 seconds.
The solo riders did not have to complete this stop, but instead received a time penalty.

Valentin Knechtel received shortly before the start that his teammate Müesli could not participate in the race due to technical problems.
Valentin therefore had to drive the race all alone.
Luckily he is used to long stints by participating in real simracing 24 hours races.
After a fight at the beginning of the race, he was able to pull away slightly and defend the lead until the finish.


What a lovely surprise, guys. THANK YOU!! :slight_smile:

Margar, Nat Steveson and Stavros also showed a strong performance and chased Valentin the whole race.
Stavros managed the fastest lap of the race.

The Participants agreed again that we should continue such long races in the future.
Maybe we will take this into account for our next championships.
