Coanda Simsport take the win in Daytona 24 top-split


The world-renowned esports team, Coanda Simsport, took victory in the 24 Hours of Daytona on iRacing this weekend.

Their team consisted of a trio of some of the iRacing service’s very best road course drivers: Joshua Rogers, Mitchell deJong and Mack Bakkum.

In some respects, it was a dominant victory for the #8 Coanda Simsport team. They led 861 of the 898 laps in their LMP2 car. That said, the whole podium was on the same lap – with Williams Esports in 2nd, 50 seconds behind and Mivano just 7 seconds behind them in 3rd.

Although Red Bull Formula 1 driver Max Verstappen qualified the Team Redline Orange car on pole position in the GTE class, they later retired fairly early on. They received minor bodywork damage, resulting in the car being “3-4kph” down on the straights.

Triple A Esports took the GTE win in their BMW M8 – closely followed by MSI eSports Red and BMW Team BS Competition.

In GTD there was another BMW taking the class win. The M3 GT3 of Team BMW Bank were the victors ahead of Vendeval Simracing Red in the new Lamborghini Huracán.

The start of this iRacing Daytona “Special Event” hit a number of issues at the start. The original start, scheduled for a 1pm UTC hit big problems with the scheduler and was cancelled. Racing finally got underway at 18:24 – over 5 hours later.
