iRacing delta challenge #9/20: Jefferson Reverse

There are a bunch of free tracks I’ve never driven in iRacing. Every few days I’m going to drive one with zero preparation and then post the fastest lap time here. That’s the delta time. Your mission, should you accept it, is to beat it (and then call me names in the comment section).

Here are the rules.

  1. Global Mazda MX-5 Cup, baseline setup
  2. Default Weather (78F, 2 MPH N, 55%, afternoon)
  3. 30 minutes or 20 laps, whichever comes first

Summit Point Jefferson Reverse

In the real world, Summit Point has 3 independent tracks, Main, Jefferson, and Shenandoah. I think I’ve driven Jefferson in iRacing long ago, but I’m not sure. So to ensure the track was fresh, I drove the reverse configuration. And I have to admit, I didn’t recognize any of it.

Delta = 56.191

The track is really scenic. The asphalt isn’t very wide and it dips and meanders through a backdrop of grass and trees. Trees? That doesn’t sound very safe. Rumor has it that Summit Point is putting up a lot more tire barriers to improve safety. On the one hand, that’s great, but it will ruin the aesthetics. Safety first though. In the virtual world, I didn’t hit any trees, or anything else for that matter. The course is really well laid out and is a real pleasure to drive. If I was visiting Summit Point, I’d drive this instead of the main course.

Track Rank

In this section I’m ranking the tracks in the order of my preference. I tend to like technical tracks with some elevation, short straights, and corners that are blind, off camber, decreasing radius, and connected.
