Today iRacing is hosting the 12 Hours of Sebring and there are a number of Penny Arcade League teams participating. I’ll be racing with Team Red Shift and should be getting in the car around 1:30PT this afternoon!
The race has already begun and you can watch our first driver Skiggity kick things off. Endurance racing is like a relay race but the baton is a race car! So I’ll be taking over the car this afternoon around 1:30PT and I’ll have a one hour stint that you can watch over on our Twitch channel.
We are using this as an opportunity to try and raise some money for Child’s Play and with that in mind my son Gabe and I put together a fun little mini game. You’ll notice a road at the top of the streams today with little Gabe and Tycho karts. When you make a donation to Child’s Play you can begin your donation comment with either “TEAM GABE” or “TEAM TYCHO” and the appropriate kart will move towards the finish line based on how much you gave! It was a fun project but right now the Tycho kart is in the lead and that hurts a little.
I will also be giving away FOUR Logitech G923 racing wheels! Thanks to my sim racing sponsor Logitech I have two for Playstation and two for Xbox. I’ll be giving away all four of these wheels this afternoon during my stint to lucky folks in chat. This was the setup I used for years and it’s a great way to get into sim racing!
See you at Sebring!
