CoRe’s Daytona 24h Entry Ends In P10

Oskari Rinne, Oscar Mangan & Carl Jansson finish their 2022 Daytona 24h run battlescarred within Top-10!

With a massive onslaught of competition and sign-ups, the first endurance special event of iRacing in 2022 was once again a tough 24 hour fight at Daytona Beach, Florida. CoRe SimRacing’s GTD effort stepped into the top server with a BMW M4 GT3 machine – and having their elbows out for the most of the race distance, Oskari Rinne, Oscar Mangan and Carl Jansson managed to see the chequered flag and finished the CoRe entry in the Top-10. A second CoRe effort, consisting of Allert Van Der Wal, Thomas Arends, Maxim Ramsteijn, Pascal Stix and Sven Neumann, who signed up in Split 3, sadly had to retire their car after being involved in major accidents in the first quarter of the event.

Oscar : “10th place two years in a row! Consistent! Overall it’s bittersweet for me. Our pace was strong in the opening stints but we couldn’t make the tyres last compared to our rivals and it’s something we’ll have to investigate for the future. Still to finish where we did in what is for sure the most competitive GT class the Daytona 24 has ever seen is something to be definitely proud of. We learn from it and push for the next one.

Oskari : “I drove a poor qualifying and that meant we started on the end of the midpack. We were able to save fuel really well during the first three hours, but as other teams started to quad-stint their tires, we realized we have to do the same thing. In the big picture that didn’t really work out, since our car was clearly suffering from poor tire wear and we lost considerable amount of time at the end of each stint. At the end I had a great battle with Urano and BS+Competition. Getting a Top-10 finish from probably the most competitive field in any iRacing special event so far definitely wasn’t a bad result even if it felt like we could have gotten way more, if some things would went more our way.
