Marcos Furriel finished 2nd place at Interlagos
8th week of the IMSA series in the iRacing simulator, Marcos Furriel got a second place in the GT3 class. The race was broadcast on the official iRacing channel on Youtube.
Furriel took second place on the grid just 0.137 behind pole position, Sergi Maturana. At the start, Maturana got a better reaction to the green light and took advantage of the strength of the Mercedes engine in the great straight of Interlagos to open 1 second of advantage for Furriel.
With a slower car, the Atlantic Motorsport rider was approaching the core of the circuit, but Maturana returned the difference in the straight.
Both were in the same pace until the stop in the stall on lap 20 with a difference less than 1 second. With a slower stop to put fuel and the misfortune of having picked blue flag for a DP in the back exit of the pit, the difference for Maturana rose to 2.7s. Furriel managed to decrease to 1.8 seconds but the effort to make up for lost time in the stall ended up overkilling the tires of Furriel’s Audi, which lost performance in the final laps.
In the end, the difference was 2.3 seconds.
