2018 iRacing Roar Before the 24 – Daytona 24 Hour build up

On the weekend JBH took part in the first major sim-race of the year in the 2018 iRacing Roar Before the 24, a build up race before 2018 iRacing Daytona 24. Unfortunately it did not go as planned when a car in another class on cold tyres coming out of the pit lane collided with JBH’s car knocking him out of the race at the 40 minute mark. It was a rough end to a rough start after coming together with another car (also in a different class) on lap 2.. Full race – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzOjQ561AsA

” We struggled a little bit for pace but ended up performing well in the race thanks to the draft and making the right moves at the right time, just wish we could’ve ran the full 2.4 hours. So far the mid week signs for the Daytona 24 are not good as we can’t get the C7 Prototype to perform how we’d like. But at the end of the day it’s a 24 hour race so pace isn’t everything, I am very confident in our drivers line up as all 4 of us are running similar pace with similar driving styles which is a rare find in endurance racing “

(Here is the sole red Mazda MX5 Cup car that Joseph raced on the weekend, it is the exact same car the JBH drove in real life back in the 2015 Mazda road to 24 shootout)

Stay tuned this weekend for the 2018 iRacing Daytona 24 in which Joseph will be driving a Corvette C7 Prototype. After the folding of Black Adder Motorsport at the end of 2017, Joseph has become a part of the newly formed Wyvern racing and will race a long side his previous BAM team mates Sai Andra, Alex Ellis and Juliano Romagnuolo. The full race will be uploaded to the official JBH youtube channel following the race on Monday which can be found at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeNUlQjeIKUSoV4ctpcJKEQ
