    Nature calls and the Band of Others Blancpain Sprint Series answers by visiting one of Mother Natures crowned jewels of racing, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course - Full Course.

    Located just outside the village of Lexington Ohio USA, Mid-Ohio is 13 challenging turns over rolling landscape artistically lined by a plethora of nearby sand traps.

    Mid-Ohio could just as easily be a challenging Golf Course which Drivers may learn the hard way if they stray too far off line.

    Speed will not be as important this week as will being smooth on throttle and consistent throughout the course.

    Mid-Ohio is a beautifully intimate and challenging course difficult to get right but oh so satisfying when you finally do.

    Hope to see you all there!

    Whenever possible the B2O Blancpain League attempts to follow the official iRacing series schedule to allow an easy transition from the official series into our league. However, for the remainder of the season, a poll will be included in these posts asking for your opinion on the track for each round for two reasons;
    1. We missed out on two rounds earlier in the season, Phillip Island and Interlagos, due to the holidays. Because of the popularity of the tracks skipped, we discussed adding them in at a later date, and so each week the option will be given to the community.
    2. Due to the small size of the league, we offer the opportunity to run a smaller configuration of the track (when availible) to try to keep the pack as close as possible and prevent races from turning into 20/50 minute hot lap sessions. This has created some good results in the past, around some of iRacing's less used configurations.
    These options will always be provided to the community, but the option to run the official iRacing BSS track of that week will always be the top/default setting unless it is decided
    otherwise on this thread!.

    Actually, this track is not a gift from Mother Nature, it was actually a track designed by Les Griebling in 1962.. but don't tell Ken that.. he'd never believe this rolling 2.258 miles of concrete wasn't created by the gods themselves...

    You're right, this track is simply too awesome to be the work of mortal man.
