We gave the new Kinetic Momentum car a great debut in the Bathurst 12 hour. We chose team veterans [ John King ] and [ Gustavo Cianfarani ] to start and finish the race respectively and newcomers [ Dustin Berentsen ] and [ Jonathan Diggs ] to do the bulk of the driving in the middlepart of the race.

 

IMSA cars (DP, GTE, GT3) and 2 races at 1am and 1pm GMT on Saturday. Note that this is another Majors "Super Weekend" with Majors races on Sat/Sun depending on the region so make sure you make your car/race selection with that in mind.

For 2019, Kinetic will run full teams in both the Pro and Sportsmans constructors championship and small junior teams supporting both.

 

The factory team will consist of Wade Hays, Vince l'Herbier and Scott Corbin (all members of the 2nd place team in 2018) plus new team members Liam Quinn and Mark Schindel. Marc Torres is unlikely to be able to run in all rounds in 2019 so he'll be in the Junior team, but promoted to the Factory team when he's available.

During 2018 Kinetic only had a small team in the Europe region but for 2019 we'll be sending a strong, full squad which should be competitive in the region.

 

So far in 2019

 

The team made a brilliant start to the year with both Christian and Gabe winning their classes. Mattias recovered from an early spin to take 4th place and give the team a small lead in the standings. Joao made a great debut for the team and finished 7th. Linden drove very strongly but had some late ace problems and dropped back.

 

Round 2

 

Date: 
Wednesday, December 18, 2019 - 09:45 to Thursday, December 19, 2019 - 17:45

During 2019, Kinetic will have 3 teams running in the International region.

 

#1. Kinetic Schwift Racing. This is effectively the defending champion constructor team but now acknowledging the contribution made last year by Josh Noack who is a member of Schwift racing for most iRacing events. This year the team will also be joined by Schwift's Eric Thorpe and also Dean Moll who run as a privateer last year and finished 5th in the drivers championship. John King and Alex Sheridan of Kinetic will be the other team members.

Our driver development car Betsy had a superb record in the 2018 iRacing special events but we started 2019 poorly. We ran well for the 1st half of the race but had a number of reasonably small problems that damaged the car and hindered progress. As we started the 2nd half of the race, the car became progressively more difficult to drive and we ended up having a couple of major crashes and decided to park the car - Betsy's 1st DNF under the Kinetic name.

 

2 Timeslots for this one - 1:00am GMT and 1pm GMT.

 

Thanks god no GTE's in this one so the car choices are easy smiley
