From Sim Racing to the Real Thing
16 sim racers from the Moradness M Squad were given the opportunity of a lifetime to drive a real Mercedes-AMG GT4 racecar from Winward Racing. The Sim racers helped prepare Bryce Ward and the team for all of the races throughout the IMSA season. Bryce and Russell Ward offered these drivers the opportunity of a lifetime to fly down to Houston, Texas and drive a real race car. Each of the drivers got around 6 or 7 laps in the car. The results were shocking. In depth review of the laps will be featured in another video.
