12 Hours of Sebring

I've joined up with some other guys from the r/iracing subreddit to form a team in the 12 Hours of Sebring. We'll be driving the BMW Z4 in the GT3 class.

I know I'm not fast in the Z4, in the GT3 Series races I've run in the past I've always been focused on driving safely rather than quickly. I think this same attitude will allow me to bang out consistent incident free laps for the 2 or 3 hours of my shift.

I ran some practice laps and have found a setup which I find very docile and stable. I've been able to work my way down to a 2:03.060 laptime. A poor run through the hairpin cost me an easy 0.30 and I'm aware of a few more tenths I left on the table. I'm confident I'll be able to get down into the low 2:02's with just a little more practice time.
