CoRe Wins At The Oak Tree & Secures A Double Podium!
The last special event from the Sports Car Open organization in this year was a five hours race at the Virginia International Raceway featuring iRacing’s Audi RS3 TCR and the GT4 category. CoRe SimRacing did compete with three entries who were up to run the race around the still existing virtual oak tree. After great battles with some top tcr teams both CoRe SimRacing entries finished on the podium.
Kimmo Suominen and Marius Golombeck were the squad for one of the CoRe TCRs. The other CoRe RS3 machine was lead by Carl Jansson and Ross Balfour. As main competitors SimRC, HM Engineering and Puresims Esports were pushing hard both CoRe teams had to give it all to keep it safe in the tight and close but fair racing TCR pack. Managing it well through repeating GT4 traffic at the tricky VIR circuit and focusing on clean driving, CoRe’s Ross Balfour and Carl Jansson saw themselves in the lead position by the end of the race to take the class victory at the Oak Tree 300 event. Marius Golombeck and Kimmo Suominen were able to join the podium finishing in 3rd securing the team another very valuable double podium. The RaceSpot broadcast of this event can be found here.
