Quarantine GT Series – A Mixed Bag at Spa

Amongst all the uncertainty and craziness of the current world, a brand new iRacing series started – the Quarantine GT Series. Aimed at drivers from Australia & New Zealand, the GTE only series got underway on Monday, with a 60 Minute race at the world famous Spa-Francorchamps.

The Rev It Up Racing eSports Team fielded 4 Ferraris, with no real idea of how the race would play out.


#25 Jackson Freer
Qualifed: 6th
Race: 4th

Freer was sitting just outside the Top 10 for most of Qualifying, until his final flying lap, where he jumped to provisional 4th place, which would soon be relegated to 6th. Once the race got underway, Freer drove a calm race, sitting on the edge of the Top 5 for most of the race, and making most of the situations around him, to come home in P4, behind a 1-2-3 for Trick Esports.


#27 Sean Grimmond
Qualified: 19th
Race: 11th

Having been out of the seat for a few weeks, Grimmond adapted well to the Ferrari, Qualifying inside the top 20 (out of 44 cars). Another calm and smart drive saw Grimmond steadily move up the standings, narrowly missing out on a Top 10 finish. It’s a great start to the season campaign.


#23 Jeremiah Morton
Qualified: 4th
Race: 22nd

After a cracking Qualifying performance to put him on the second row of the grid, Morton’s hopes were high at the beginning of the 60 minute race. However his hopes would be short-lived; a Lap 4 accident taking him out of contention. Morton was side-by-side battling for the podium positions, when a lapped car forced him to move across. Contact was made with Scott Cislowski, sending Morton into the wall.

” I understand how it happened, and it wasn’t really anyone’s fault because I had to move over with the lapped car there,” explained a dejected Morton.


#66 Nicholas Crofton
Qualified: 14th
Race: 38th

Having qualified 14th, Crofton had a solid start, but his race would come to an abrupt end, following a major Lap 1 pileup. More than 5 cars were involved in the accident at the Blanchimont corner, and Crofton was out of the race before his day had really begun.



Round 2 heads to Watkins Glen on April 20th, where the boys look to build on some decent pace.
