Round #4 of the virtual endurance racing series takes us to virtual Florida: the 500 miles of Sebring mark the final race of the year in the Le Mans Virtual Series for the Porsche Coanda Esports Racing Team before they head out for the season highlight at Le Mans in January. The two Porsche Coanda #20 and #23 teams are eager to win the race after their disappointment after Spa-Francorchamps. The Porsche works driver Ayhancan Güven, and the Porsche Junior and newly crowned Porsche Carrera Cup Germany champion Laurin Heinrich will join their Esports works driver colleagues Mitchell deJong, Joshua Rogers, Mack Bakkum, and Tommy Østgaard.
A mixture of concrete and asphalt.
One of the unique characteristics of the Sebring International Raceway in Florida must be the track's surface conditions. The 5.954 km long track with its 17 corners is located on a former US Air Force Base. The virtual drivers, too, must get along with different surface materials: 3.8 kilometres are made of asphalt, and the other 1.8 kilometres are out of big concrete piles. It will be crucial for the engineers and drivers of the Porsche Coanda Esports Racing Team to find the perfect setup for changing conditions. Also, mentally, this change in track materials will be a challenge: the drivers must keep their concentration high at every point of the track to always know where they are and what the track is made of underneath their car. The challenge will be demanding, but the team will benefit from last year's experience.
