Driving some of the greatest race cars ever made, CMS is racing the GT1 series. Monsterous machines of a bygone era that will not go quietly. Tune in to the event 20/05/21.
30 drivers took to the racing surface at Yas Marina as part of the final preparations for the rF2 Virtual GT1 Championship that will be debuting 20 May at CMS. The six manufacturers of the GT1 2010 era championship were represented in both the PRO and AM classes with some tight racing as well as a variety of pit strategies on display as the drivers tested themselves and their car choice before making final commitments for the opening race.
NARS was very pleased to see not only a strong contingent of drivers returning after the recently completed Virtual DTM Championship but also drivers new to NARS as well as CMS. Across the paddock, there was strong praise for the mod and the racing with comments like “Definitely enjoyed this race…. Excited for the rest of the series! These GT1 cars are so challenging but awesome to drive, at and above the limit” dominating the post-race forum comments.
With less than a week before the GT1 season launches officially, there is still time for drivers and teams to get in some essential practice before the first race at Silverstone on 20 May.
