After a late call up, Chris Heyneke has joined Leandre Sparks to complete the driver line up for RSA Protea SimSports’ attempt on Round 2 of the Virtual Le Mans Series. Round 2 of Season 2 takes place at Fuji Raceway and will span four hours.
The all South African team is cautiously optimistic after a disappointing Round 1 of the championship left the #70 Corvette C7.R GTE stranded with a blown engine on the Indianapolis circuit.
With 41 teams and well over 120 drivers taking part, the VLMS is the official feeder series to the Virtual Endurance Championship (VEC). The VEC is an official rFactor 2 league closely based on the real-world World Endurance Championship (WEC). RSA Protea SimSports is contesting VEC in both Divisions 1 and 2.
