The lines between sim racing and “in real life” racing continue to be blurred on a daily basis. At GSI we are honored to be working with Indy Car, F1 and GT drivers to supply sim equipment that lives up to real world expectations and in some areas find ways to improve on it. Thank you to Tony Kanaan the team at Mclaren for inviting us to imagine what is possible and envision a day where we all share the same equipment across the highest levels of motorsport both in real life and in the sim. the wheel was not used on track…. YET!

Mike- p was involved in the first caution or I got spun by a guy and 30 seconds. Optional work my way back up to the front got 8X and two laps just buy barely touching cars on the front stretch with no incident Then wrecked out on lap 115 a blinker was completely gone for like half a lab. He came back briefly I stayed hi but it wasn’t enough. I got turned dumped and recked.
David – p10. Sped during green flag stop. Caution came out with with my tires 20 laps old and 1 lap down. Several times the caution came out in the middle of green flag stops, I kept having to wave around and race on older tires getting as low as 2 laps down or as high as lead lap. Finally with 40 to go, I take the wave around while in 8th place and get a caution to put me back even. The some of the most fun tight but not wrecking racing i’ve ever been in to survive for a lucky 10th. Several times I got squeezed into the wall, but managed not to bounce off of the wall and or wreck the squeezer.
Justin – P5, nothing went right in the beginning until the last half of the race. Lap down the entire time. Last 100 lap finally got on the lead lap just stayed out of trouble.
- Gen 4 at Darlington. P11. Brad is highest fourth we got run over from a dive bomber. Continue to get run over from the various people four or five times and lost track position. Why can’t people hold their line and get by without touching you I don’t get it.
