    Official race dates Jan. 23 & 24

    Hey guys, The Daytona 24 hour race is quickly approaching!

    I plan on hosting a test room this Sunday at 9PM to test cars. For those that plan on running, we need to determine which car we plan on racing. I’m assuming (this is not for certain) that iRacing will run the GT3 cars and the new Daytona Prototype. I’m not sure if they’ll toss the GT1’s into the mix or not.

    As a team, we need to first figure out which car we are all comfortable with driving, Determine the driver lineup, Find a setup we are all comfortable with.

    Best to start now instead of rushing near the event to get it all together!

    I’m not available during the afternoon of Saturday, but the morning is fine. I can also put in a late night and a early morning on Sunday. I’m flexible. I don’t mind starting the race, and or finishing it either.

    iRacing now has official rooms for the 24 practice. We need to group up and work or tweak a setup. Maybe tonight or Thursday night if anyone is available? Russ and Jon, you two seem to be the setup guys. Let me know when you can jump on so we can get the car ready.

    Dan’s setup feels nice, though a bit loose in the kink for my liking. Felt like it wanted to kill me every time I went through there and was getting worse later into the stint. But checking this out, appears they lift a lot more!

    I’m happy to work on the set up. Allen I’ll share my updated set with you next time I see you in a room. The big question is seeing how any of these sets last a race stint!

    Sorry, I wasn’t available last night. I’m available Thursday night after 8:30pm.

    I agree we need to run the setups through a full fuel load and see how they transition. Jon’s setup last year was very predictable through the entire stint.

    Hey guys, I will be around today. High winds lastnight knocked out power for 3/4 of the town.

    I have messed with my setup a bit and got SOME understeer worked out of it. I have not tried Jon’s setup yet, maybe email or share it in session with me tonight. If we could get a mix of my setup and Jons, mine with stablity but jons were it doesnt want to kill you in the kink lol.

    By kink.. do you mean the bus stop or turn 3 (sweeping left hand)?

    Kink is the sweeping left hander, turn 3.

    We have our league race tonight for the Skip Barber at Barber Motorsport Short A. A few of us are planning on being on Thursday night for setup work, probably after 8:30pm. Join us if you can.

    Gotchya, I made some adjustments to get through the kink almost full throttle, but i would rather lift a bit and take it safer.

    Yea I will try and be at the race tonight. If anyone can send me over jons setup through email or iracing message I will try to run a full tank and get some calculations on how are pits may look.

    A few of us will be jumping on tonight at around 8:30 for some 24 practice. Tweaking and checking setups. Come on out if you get the chance.

    I ran more laps tonight. I should probably move my status to “possible”. I can’t make it through a full stint without wrecking either at the bus stop or turn one. I end up slowing down a lot and then I’m a liability in traffic. The McLaren feels very different to me this year and I cannot get a grip on it. I know I took a few months off, but I cannot get comfortable with this car, no matter what the setup is.

    Not seeing much activity this year. We may have to cancel. If the Panthers win today (going to be hard to pull out the win) I’ll probably be heading to Charlotte next weekend for the game.

    Ugh. I’ll do three stints if that helps!

    I agree Allen. There’s been just a few of us that show interest. Roll call: Who’s in?

    Thanks to Jon’s setup today I was able to get into the low 44’s and I have some more to go so I’m in. I can’t run any on the Saturday afternoon, but I can run that morning, that evening and Sunday morning. Who’s in?

    EDIT: Uh, looks like the Panthers pulled it out…. we may not have Allen for the race. We have 5 drivers that have been talking about it…Jon, Mike, Dan, Larry, Myself. Randy has been running laps so we may have 6. That’s 4 hours driving time each…we can do this. If Bryan and Sloan chip in, we’re solid.
