VELOCE WINS THE 24HR OF LE MANS ESPORTS SERIES

The Veloce team entered the Super Final as a wildcard entry along with SMP, joining 10 three-driver teams, who qualified from over 20,000 competitors in an intense six-round qualifying format. It partnered its Forza specialists David Kelly and Noah Schmitz with eROC champion but Forza novice James Baldwin.

The Veloce M8 GTE used to secure the victory and 25k in the super final.

While it finished second in the first of the nine-races taking place over a 24-hour period, it struggled in the subsequent races. However, the team battled back, winning the sixth race and earning fourth on the grid for the deciding race - a 90-minute race in modern GT cars that would require all three drivers in each of the teams to take part.

The three man Veloce team bringing home the victory!

As it was 15 points off the championship lead, Baldwin started Veloce’s race 15 seconds after pole-sitter Baguette Racing. The team passed Kitty Krew, who won two of the first eight races and hunted down Baguette, passing the French trio’s entry on lap 18 of 24. Veloce, in the hands of Sauber Esports driver David Kelly stormed into a sizeable lead and claimed the $25,000 prize [adding to its $6,000 from the first eight races].
