0.0 - Introduction
Welcome to CFS, a sim racing community dedicated to the world of Endurance Racing. Endurance Racing is in our opinion the best form of Motorsport, it creates an atmosphere and a bond between drivers that cannot be matched in other championship or series. The racing is hard, fast and merciless, with several classes racing all at once for a length of time that can vary from 3 Hours to 24 Hours.
Thats why we are looking for like minded racers to help build our iRacing Endurance team. We are looking to expand across all Categories, LMP1, HPD, GTE and GT3 cars. So if you are the kind of Racer that enjoys challenging their limits, working with a team to achieve victory, or if you just are fed up of being wrecked at turn 1 at the mazda cup, you need to join us.
1.0 - Who are Team CFS
CFS, Formely CFEG, was founded by two friends who felt there wasn't a single series that fitted their standards or requirements due to how our lives impacted our free time. We have always loved endurance racing and this has and always will be our primary focus. Ever since iRacing introduced their special events, CFS has been there to race. Over the years we have Learnt from our mistakes, Learnt from our defeats, and used that knowledge to win races.
We are proud to say that after years of trying, CFS had its most succesful year of Endurance Racing in 2018. A win at 12h Sebring in both DP + GT3. A 2nd at 24h Daytona. A win at 24h Le mans in HPD/LMP2 and a win at PTLM in GT3.
CFS aims to better ourselves. We want to move up the ladder, challenge ourselves against the best in the business. It's a long road to the top, but with the same determination that has gotten us this far, we shall get to the summit eventually.
Team CFS drives a variety of cars from LMP1 to GT3. The team is flexible, dedicating time and passion to ensuring the car is ready for every event on the calendar.
4.0 - HPD [LMP2]
24h Le Mans 2019 - 1st place
The HPD ARX 01c ranks among the fastest and most innovative sports prototypes ever built. Winner of the LMP2 class in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the HPD ARX 01c traces its roots to the Acura ARX 01c that scored an historic class win in its debut in the 12 Hours of Sebring and went on to score several overall wins in the American Le Mans Series against the more powerful and (theoretically) faster LMP1 competition.
The HPD ARX 01c chassis features a carbon-fiber monocoque with push-rod, double wishbone suspension, front and rear, and is equipped with six piston, aluminum caliper brakes with carbon discs. The car is powered by a 3.4 liter V8 which produces approximately 480 horsepower transmitted through a semi-automatic six speed gearbox. Coupled with the substantial downforce generated by an assortment of wings, flaps and tunnels, the HPD ARX 01c is as nimble as it is powerful and, with the aid of traction control, equally proficient under acceleration and braking. In short, the HPD ARX 01c is the very definition of the modern sports prototype.
Although the LMP2/HPD has been in iRacing for several years, it was only in 2018 that CFS introduced it into their line up of Endurance vehicles after an admin took the car for a drive in the Le Mans series. The car is nimble, fast and extremely fun, offering a fast paced experience without the hassle of the hybrid systems found in the LMP1 cars.
5.0 - GTE [Ford GT + Ferrari 488]
Team Drivers: 2019
Yellow [Ferrari] - Vacant, Vacant, Vacant, Vacant
Red [Ford] - Vacant, Vacant, Vacant, Vacant
Team CFS introduced the Ford GT and Ferrari 488 late in 2018. The Ferrari has seen action at the PDCD 6 Hours of Brands Hatch, but sadly got collected by a few backmarkers which caused considerable damage. The car came home 16th/60th. So a strong result, but it could have been allot higher up the order if not for the issues.
The Ferrari is in fact the most recent edition to our ranks, displaying a more "bold" front end compared to other iRacing vehicles. It will be looking to take part in several events in 2019 alongside the Ford GT.
The Ford GT is yet to be used by CFS as the team focused primarily on the LMP2 drive at Le Mans, as well as the Mercedes AMG car at PTLM in 2018. We hope that we can run x1 Ford and X1 Ferrari as the team grows!
Both cars replicate real life regulations, with no ABS system, restricted aerodynamics and increased power over their GT3 counterparts. This then is a great class to race, certainly a handful for any person taking on an endurance race.
