AOR iRacing GTE League - Season 4
Round 5: Detroit Belle Isle
Well, I'm afraid to start this by saying that iRacing have made a mistake. A truly, terrible mistake. I searched for Belle Isle. It appears that it's a popular tourist destination in France. Off the coast of the Gulf of Morbihan.
For those who enjoy boredom for your free time, there's a quaint fishing village in Belle Isle's second largest town. There you're likely to find lobsters and langoustines.
If history is your thing, there's a famous fort. Pointe des Poulains. It has a fancy solar powered lighthouse.
Music buffs, don't think you're left out, in recent years, Belle Isle has hosted the Festival Lyrique en Mer, an intentionally renowned festival featuring some of the worl's best emerging singers... apparently.
My point is, when I load this on iRacing, rather than a beautiful French island, with long coasts, picturesque views perfect for a postcard to your pals, and some petite French roads on which I could drive my Ferrari. Instead, it's an incredibly bumpy, incredibly narrow, American car park, retail park, or service roads. I guess we've announced it now, so we can't really do much else but give it a go.
Seriously though. This track is tough. It's tough for everyone. Don't just not turn up because it's hard. It's a first for the series and it'd be great to have a nice grid. Just take it steady is all you have to do.
