That's bad ass. I like how the guy's office chair is a racing seat.

Here's the race broadcast of the top split. Not sure if my team will make that top split of best ranked drivers, but at least you can check it out.

My team is "NWOR" btw (NW Ohio Region SCCA). There's an ETR logo on the hood though (if they got the custom paints working for teams)

edit: looks like the feed isn't updated. Still shows pro race of champions.

Our team is still going. A few situations, but luckily nothing race-ending.

Hazard of virtual racing: make sure you unplug your chromecast so that it doesn't change the input on your TV so you can't see what is happening. Anyway, we recovered from that and another off and me bump drafting a Porch.

Currently P6 in class (started 20ish). Prob 11 overall.

Incredible experience.

Still the Pro race of Champions. You'd think they'd update the "live feed".

Bump drafting is common in real life.

Well, we did really well. Finished in 4th in class, 9th overall. Started 29th.

Here's a vid of one of my laps - http://youtu.be/mrFVl32N7aU

I figured out how to get the live feed but I never saw your team. Unless it was coverage of a previous 24 hrs of Daytona. I went to the main site and found the race in the schedule tab.

Chris, what are you using for the headlook? TrackIR or something similar?

I thought it was just the go-pro attached to his head. 3 monitors makes my single one look like a Game Boy.

Cody is correct, that's just my gopro. I never realized how often I check my mirrors and the relative positions of cars.

So, me, James Cathers, Marcus Luttrell, and Mark McCrary are going to attempt finish the 24 Hours of Daytona on iRacing this weekend. Wish us luck.

If it goes well maybe we'll do the 12 hours of Bathurst and the 24 Hours of LeMans later this year

Wish I had the time and rig to help out. Kieran may be a better choice in the end, though. But still need a better rig.

But I bet your PC is a bit more powerful than my four-year-old desktop.
