Majors 24 Victory For Endurance Team
June 2022 marked the second year iRacing lacked an “Official” 24 Hour event at Le Mans, and the second year that the well known iRacing sanctioning body The Majors Series ran the Majors 24 at Le Mans. The event, in only a year, became massive. With weeks of testing, a unique speed-based qualifying format, and all the while a swelling entry list of LMP1s, LMP2s, and GTEs, the sense of anticipation was high the entire week leading up to Saturday morning’s gridding of the 2nd Majors 24.
we had our ups and downs during the race but in the end perseverance and staying out of trouble got us the win, so happy to share the win with the team and can’t wait for the next one.Marcus Spry, LMP1 Driver/Chief Int’l Driver
Five MAD Sim Racing Endurance Teams made entry into the Majors 24, facing head on the always likely pains of endurance racing, particularly 24 hours of multi-class racing. The lone LMP1 entry, powered by Audi, was piloted by Marcus Spry, Miles Wragg, Francisco Quincke, and Baptiste Seguy; a group of some of the team’s strongest international drivers, aiming for an overall victory. The team accomplished just that, with multiple Le Mans laps worth of a lead on the competing prototypes by the end of 24 hours. The Endurance Team 2022 page now adds its third banner: The Daytona 24, won. The Bathurst 12, won. The Majors 24, won. Next, we attack the Watkins Glen 6, the Spa 24, and Petit Le Mans.
Yeah, we got our issues and bad luck out of the way early in the race, but as the night fell, we got our heads down, we found our pace and the other cars starting to meet their own trouble. It still feels a bit surreal and I can’t wait to get my coin!Baptiste Seguy, LMP1 Driver
Our race had somewhat of a shakey opening with some unavoidable hardware issues, but once that was sorted it was more or less smooth sailing to the finish! It’s been an absolute honor to drive with MSR and especially to take the win in only my second start with the team. It’s awesome to be part of such a great family of racers and I hope the relationship to be a long and fruitful one. On to the next!Miles Wragg, LMP1 Driver
