All To Play For in GTP & LMP2 After 10 Hours, Redline Dominate in GTD.

January 20, 20245 min read

With 10 hours of the 2024 iRacing Daytona 24 Hour race complete, it’s all to play for in both GTP and LMP2. GTD however seems to be a Team Redline dominant run, but it’s not entirely over in terms of class winners and the podium. As the race passes midnight virtual time, here’s a run down of the current action and positioning on track.

GTP Update

Starting in GTP, Charlie Collins’ #92 VRS Coanda Porsche leads at the hour mark, however they are on an alternate strategy to the rest of the field. They have gained 5 seconds since the Williams Esports Playseat #6 made their last pitstop, marking the first real time in the race they haven’t led at the top of the hour. It’s close between the #6, the #8 VRS Coanda and #5 Williams Esports Fanatec machines, with less than 5 seconds separating each team, with less than 2 tenths of a second separating them lap on lap. Collins continues to set fastest laps in the race, so perhaps the alternate strategy and Coanda setup is starting to bear fruit.

LMP2 Update

In LMP2, it’s WSR Esports Buttkicker that continues to lead in the #23, by about 9 seconds over the #18 Calce Team car.  The #18 have moved themselves into a solid podium position as the track goes into nighttime mode, having been able to hold off charges from the #81 VRS Coanda and #120 MAG Performance machines. MAG Performance are the biggest loser in class after running 2nd place throughout much of the early running, and are now the slowest runner in the top 5. SimRC’s #76 runs in P5, however was involved in a scary moment earlier on in the running with Coanda.

GTD Update

In GTD, it’s currently Team Redline domination, with the #2 and #4 sharing the lead of the race with Josh Thompson currently leading the way. They now have a 55 second advantage over the Williams Esports BenQ car running in third, after earlier issues for the Stormforce ART #199 car forced them onto a slightly different strategy. Although the two Redline cars look secure out front, we’ve already seen class leaders disposed from the lead three times already, and the duo running so close on track may make it harder for others to put laps on them.
