Here are the results, replay, and photos from The Oppositelock Forza 6 2.4 Hours Of Daytona. In addition, I have a few notes about the upcoming vintage F1 series in this post.
Here is the link to the replay, in case you missed the race. This is the most people we’ve had for a race like this since Daytona last year, which resulted in a lot of action and close racing. Special thanks to RoboRed for recording the race from a spectator’s point of view, everyone who also recorded the race and/or streamed it on Twitch, and to Little Black Coupe for being the pace car.
Here are the results by class, as well as a picture of the car used by each driver.

Thoughts And Comments
Personally, I think this race went very well. This is the best turnout we’ve had in awhile. We only needed 2 more people to fill the lobby. Racing was close in both classes, and with this many people there was a lot of racing going on. There were some cautions, and with 20 people and 2.4 hours of racing that was to be expected. There weren’t any major, race-breaking events though. So then, it was a mostly clean, fast paced, and close race.
Now, I had said that I was going to say some stuff about vintage F1. I’m confirming the track list, build rules, and start date now so you can all start practicing.
Track List: 1. Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, 2. Watkins Glen Full Circuit Alt, 3. Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit, 4. Le Mans Bugatti Circuit (Rain), 5. Long Beach Full Circuit, 6. Nurburgring Full Circuit, 7. Monza Full Circuit Alt, 8. Bernese Alps Stadtplatz Circuit, 9. Rio Full Circuit, 10. Laguna Seca.
Build Rules: Mclaren M23 (P906) (race brakes, race tires, street hood optional), Lotus 77 (P906) (race brakes, race tires), Ferrari 312 T2 (P906) (race brakes, race tires, street hood optional).
First race: February 4th, 4:30 PM EST.
Expect a full post with sign ups and all the details soon.
That’s it for the 2.4 Hours of Daytona! Until next year. Based on what went down, I’d say we’re looking at what will become a good year of racing.
