After a successful first two outings for Dave Cam in his new Pick N’ Mix Challenge Series on the iRacing service, this week, as voted on by the Traxion.GG community, things are going to be in Dave’s wheelhouse once again. A series in which Dave previously did Traxion.GG Track Guides for, the Fanatec GT3 Challenge this week heads to Daytona, and Dave will be looking to improve his iRating for a third straight week.
This season’s challenge is that Dave must gain 395 iRating during the course of 2022 iRacing Season 2. While he can gain iRating with good finishes, he can also lose it with bad results. He’ll be competing in one race per week which the Traxion.GG community can vote on.
Now, while Dave can qualify in normal circumstances, he can opt to use one of his two ‘jokers’. He already used one back in the first week. The ‘joker’ doubles his iRating points earned (or lost), but as a caveat, he needs to start from the back. Dave didn’t opt for the ‘joker’ this week, but because of a rough qualifying, he’ll be starting from the back anyway.
Dave’s already got 116 of the needed 395 iRating points, but this week is about damage limitation. Any gain will be a positive, and if there’s indeed his first loss of points on the season, hopefully it’s as minimal as possible. Daytona International Speedway is one of those places where it can be great fun, but it can also be a place that can easily cause chaos.
If you haven’t tuned in yet, check out Dave’s other two Pick N’ Mix races at Interlagos and Watkins Glen. Don’t forget to vote on next week’s combination starting on Friday. Maybe consider one of the wackier combinations? Keep it pinned!
