See Some of Your Favorite Pro Sports Car Racers in Virtual Action Tonight

The Roush Performance World Tour hits Suzuka tonight for a two-hour endure that pits some of your favorite pro drivers from IMSA, IndyCar, NASCAR and SCCA competition against sim racers and amateur drivers from all over the world. 

Our own JG Pasterjak will join co-driver Kyle Patee on the grid in one of the dozens of Ford GT GTE cars in the field. Both drivers ran in the top-five in last night’s sprint race, with Patee finishing a strong fourth and our guy getting stuffed by someone trying to make a low percentage pass. He still hasn’t found out how much that virtual damage to the Ford GT is going to cost, but it was a bad enough crash that he’s probably not getting the damage deposit back. 

Racing starts at 8 p.m. Eastern and is broadcast live on the Roush Performance Facebook page.

Who's going to virtually bang on the roof at the end of the pit stop and yell, "Go! Go! Go!"?

Moral victory, anyway. 

We stated 17th and got tapped from behind on the green flag lap, sending us back to about 20th. Worked our way up to 12th by the time we did our driver switch about 45 minutes in. I made it up as high as 8th during my stint, and came into the pits under a full course yellow in 9th with about 35 minutes to go... and didn't get to the pit speed limiter in time. So we got penalized to the end of the lead-lap pack, which put us back in 17th when the green flew again. We were smart enough to take fresh tires, so we worked back up to 12th by the final lap, then cars 10 and 11 both went off in the final chicane and rejoined the track after basically cutting a huge portion of track. Provisional results showed us in 11th after the automatic penalty for one of those drivers, but the other one is under review, so we may lawyer-ball ourselves into a top 10 by the time it all shakes out.
