This past weekend, racers headed to virtual Misano World Circuit for Round 2 of SRO America's GT Rivals Series. The virtual Misano features a 2.53-mile, 16-turn circuit.
Sim racer Josh Staffin took victory in a No. 230 Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo. Boehm took a second place finish in the CrowdStrike Racing/AWS No. 90 Mercedes-AMG GT3 .
Three of the top-four finishers were sim racers--Boehm was the only real-world racer and the only TC America driver to take the podium.
Round 3 of GT Rivals takes place at virtual Paul Ricard on April 26th at 3 pm ET.
How to watch:
The 2020 TC America season has been put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, SRO Motorsports America has put together an esport league: GT Rivals. It is a weekly esports invitational where real world racers, sim racers, and invited guests go head-to-head in GT World Challenge powered by AWS’ official game--Assetto Corsa Competizione.
For this series, Kevin is driving the CrowdStrike Racing/AWS AMG GT3 race car. There are eight events total. Events will include a 120-minute open practice, 20-minute qualifying, and 60-minute sprint race, streamed live every Sunday at 3pm ET beginning April 12th through May 31.
In TC America, all the race cars are equally matched. However, each car still has its strengths and weaknesses. As you can see, the Mini JCW was faster in the straights, but I could make up that difference in drafting and turns. Unfortunately, those were not enough to get past the Mini JCW at COTA. What a fun battle! The race ended with the Mini JCW in P1. I finished in P2 in the CrowdStrike Racing / AWS Turn-key Civic Si.
