Ether, Cyberspace — McLaren Factory Driver Paul Holton swapped his GTD-class 720S GT3 for a GTLM Porsche 911 RSR today, taking part in IMSA’s inaugural iRacing event at Sebring International Raceway. Facing off against competitors from across IMSA’s various series, the race is one of six scheduled over the coming weeks.
Holton qualified his No. 76 Richard Mille Porsche mid-pack, and had a number of spirited battles as he made his way through the pack during the 90-minute contest. Sadly, he suffered a mechanical issue (meaning, in this case, his computer crashed) and retired from competition.“I’m excited for the next round,” said Holton, who will switch to a BMW M8 GTE for the upcoming event at Weather Tech Raceway Laguna Seca. “I’ve already ordered a new CPU and have huge internet bandwidth, so I’m ready to take on the field. In the absence of real-life racing, this is a great way to keep our fans entertained, bring some value to our sponsors, and keep mentally fit.”
