Last Saturday, 29 April 2023, was a very important day for the Wave Italy Racing Team (WIRT).
After the great international victory of a single WIRT driver – Marcus Luzio, in the VCO Pro SIM INFINITY in December 2022 – last weekend the first Team victory was obtained, again in one of the most important international sim racing competitions, the 700 Km Suzuka – IVRA League (International Virtual Racing Association).
Non solo, si è ottenuto anche il cosiddetto Hat Trick, la vittoria perfetta che include Pole Position, Giro Veloce in gara, oltre naturalmente alla vittoria.
Michael Polasek and Damien Harris raced together on a TCR Hunday Veloster, car no. 261. The race lasted just over 4 hours and WIRT finished 1 minute ahead of 2nd, thus beating some of the strongest teams in the world such as Brabham Esports, Impulse Racing, Tedline and many others.
Not only that, the so-called Hat Trick was also obtained, the perfect victory which includes Pole Position, Fast Lap in the race, as well as the victory, of course.
Everything is even more exciting considering that WIRT entered the 3rd race of 6 of the season as a Wild Card, however obtaining a constant improvement: first in Mid-Ohio, we suffered an error from other pilots, ending P7. First also in the following race the safety car made us finish P2 and finally the Suzuka victory came.
A big warm thanks from the whole Wave Italy Racing Team therefore goe,s beyond the drivers, to the machine engineers of the MTS partner, Andrei Draghici and Phawan Bheeman for the excellent car development and to the fundamental and constant support of the box-guys, Daniele Guttuso, Andrea Tedeschi and Lemuel Mironi.
So now, top enthusiasm and concentration for the next commitment in 10 days, on the legendary Nordschleife.
