On January 19th, CanAm VRL will once again accept the challenge of conquering The World Center of Racing as we go twice around the clock in the iRacing 24 Hours of Daytona.

We will field a two car GTE class effort this year with seven drivers. Our weapon of choice is the Ferrari 488 GTE.

Representing CanAm VRL Team RED are:

  • Docslap
  • MaximusDecimusMeridius
  • texjet454
  • F1_Racer68

Representing CanAM VRL Team BLUE are:

  • Fergy16
  • Dio_Giorno
  • Fallen_Log

F1_Racer68 once again tackles overall team manager roles, with Fallen_Log assisting as team strategist for Team BLUE, while F1_Racer68 does the same for Team RED.

MaximusDecimusMeridius and texjet454 will be competing in their first ever 24 hour event, while this is Fallen_Logs first iRacing endurance event (he has previous endurance experience), and first with us.

Fergy16 and MaximusDecimusMeridius are schedule to run our "anchor" legs, meaning they are scheduled to run the final, closing stints.

The big change this year is that iRacing has introduced Dynamic Time of Day in their most recent update. This means we will see the full gambit of day-to-night-to-day.

You can follow all of our on track action with the following live stream video feeds:
