S3 VLMS MoSport – GTE #199

Events, SRC VLMS – Season 3
Introduction - Third race of the season is taking place in Canada's home of motorsports, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, also known as Mosport Park. After issues at the scheduled start of the race, it has been postponed by one month, resulting in an extension of the season by the same amount of time.

This is the second appearance for the #199 SHQM Porsche 911. Round 1, at Istanbul, resulted in a P13 finish and no points. I (Greg) guaranteed a points-paying finish from this…

Introduction - The first race of Season 3 of the Virtual Le Mans Series takes us to Istanbul for a 4 hour long race. The 3 mile long track features both slow and fast sections, with the fast four apex turn 8 being the most well known. After seeing a very strong field in the pre season race, and having to spread efforts between Sim Racing Club and P1-Gaming events, we were expecting a very challenging race where we would have to fight for any position. Engineer: Greg Hall Drivers: Nic da Silva & Brian van Beusekom Reserve: Blazej Myszk Qualifying After Nic got out of his LMP2 car over at P1-Gaming, he jumped behind the wheel of the #199 Porsche to qualify the car.
