Team Redline's Greger Huttu further solidified his unofficial title as the world’s greatest sim racer by winning the iRacing.com Intel® GP Series World Final. Bastien Bartsch also made a strong appearance in the 30 lap race at Laguna Seca making it a one-two for Team Redline sponsored by Fanatec. At first it was Bastien Bartsch setting the pace in practise and qualifying. The Frenchman posted an impressive lap of 1:17.990 around Laguna Seca’s 11 turn, 2.238 mile layout. Indeed, Bartsch was the only sim racer to break the 1:18 mark as Huttu posted a best lap of 1:18.080, .3s better than Williams. Florida’s Ray Alfalla (1:18.422) and New England’s Jake Stergiois (1:18.447) completed the top five qualifiers ahead of Wyatt Gooden (Ohio), Mitchell McLeod (Australia) and Ian Lake (Australia). The start was a clean affair with Bastien making a strong getaway with HUttu. With few passing opportunities on the fast sweeping track Bartsch seems destined to win the event. Things were to change on lap 2 however, Bartsch made an uncharacteristic driving error by turning in marginally too early at turn 6, he had to get out of the throttle thus allowing Greger to get a run at him into the corkscrew - which he duly did. From there, Huttu managed to control the race, Bartsch stayed close throughout and was ready to pounce on any mistake - none came, the iceman remained calm to claim the $4000 first prize. Bastien came home just 0.9 behind and claimed $2500!
