SESRA Board Dismissed

The Southeastern Sim Racing Association has gone through radical changes several times in its short existence, and this week is yet another. Jason Andersen, founder of SESRA, disbanded the SESRA Board this week following the Dr. Squatch Pro Series race at Michigan. The Board assisted Jason in many tasks of operating the league, but at a seeming large price from the board’s members.

“Helping me run and admin the league was a stressful and thankless position. The guys scrambled week after week to install and enforce measures to better the racing product, but fell on huge amounts of scrutiny from the driver’s and members. I feel that it has gotten to the point that all decisions are made from bias and personal perspectives from all sides. When no one is having fun its time for a change. I’m putting the league under my own guidance and direction and frankly not listening to anyone from this point. It was my initial ideas that made an awesome group at the start so that’s what I’m going back too. People who like it my way are welcome to come race it up with me, and the ones who don’t thanks for stopping by.” – Jason Andersen

Duggan Clinches A Playoff Spot

Tyler Duggan, who goes by “Diggin” in the garages, has secured his way into the Dr. Squatch Series Playoffs. But not for winning a race, but everything else. In just 10 races of the 2019 Season he has switched teams twice, got 5 Top Fives, 7 Top Tens, and never finished lower than 15th. Quite a feat, especially when compared to the competition in the field.

Duggan is currently the unofficial points leader of the season being scored two points above #00 Spencer Prete. The current Playoff format places race winners above non race winners regardless of points. But, we all watching the action believe this race is coming soon!

Duggan is an outspoken Tennessee fan with the direct authorization from the school to represent them on SESRAs Esports platform. While the points may reset at every stage of the Playoffs Diggin has surly earned his rightful place as a favorite to win the Championship.

SESRA BOPs the Fall Road Tour

The GT1 and GT3 class did battle at Watkins Glen for Race 1 of the Fall Road Tour. Ryan Washeleski and Kyle Bos won the poles for the classes. Kyle Bos drove to an uncanny lead in his Audi R8 LMS early in the race and built a 38 second lead on 2nd in class over the 30 minute race.

Due to the lack of incidents by Bos and Ridgway (P2 GT3 finisher) it warranted an investigation by SESRA Admins to ensure the cars of the GT3 class are balanced for remainder of the FRT Season.

After cross referencing the latest iRacing updates it was found that the Audi R8 needed an additional 66 lbs added as well as 11 lbs added to the Mercedes AMG for racing in class conditions. This will be applied for the remainder of the season.
