2023 iRacing Petit Le Mans Recap – GT Podcast

iRacing Petit Le Mans Recap - Garage Talk

Erik and D.J. are back this week focusing on an 2023 iRacing Petit Le Mans recap episode. Erik was part of the drive team for the 10-hour event and D.J. ran the broadcast. We talk about the challenges of both, especially preparing on short notice in this week’s F-R Racing’s Garage Talk.

In addition, if you missed the show on Friday night, a syndicated rerun can be found on the home of Wednesday Night Dash, Stadium Scene TV Saturday at 5pm ET! Note that D.J. Fluck is the majority owner of Stadium Scene TV.

2023 iRacing Petit Le Mans Recap, Driving The Dallara IR-18, And F1 Hot Weather

A big week for iRacing content on this week’s F-R Racing’s Garage Talk! We kick off the show by recapping the iRacing Petit Le Mans 10-hour endurance race from Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta in the LMP2 class. Erik recaps his 2.5-hour racing stint and the challenges of remaining focused during that time. We talk about great runs from Ian Miller (who led our first-ever endurance laps), Hunter Hughes (who was wrecked by a weaving LMP2 car), and Mark Vicars closing out the late stint with a strong run chasing down and almost catching a car that started the stint up multiple laps. P10 in the class and P16 (of 38) overall was a great performance considering that if you subtract the repair time, the team would have finished P2 in class and P8 overall behind six hypercars and the LMP2 winner.

A strong performance from both Erik and D.J. in this week’s iRacing Behind Closed Doors from Nashville Superspeedway led to the team’s first-ever 1-2 finish (Erik winning) in a league race. We recap the challenge of the fuel strategy race and how both cars were very close to running out of fuel when taking the checkered flag. We close out the league racing discussion with our mixed results during Wednesday Night Dash from Homestead Miami Speedway.

Finally, we close out the show with a brief Roval discussion and the heat challenges of the Qatar Grand Prix including a driver throwing up, one driver retiring due to almost fainting in the car, and Alonso asking permission to have a bucket of cold water dumped on him during a pit stop.
