Stanaway wins 2015 iRacing Pro Race of Champions at WGI

Richie Stanaway has won the 2015 iRacing Pro Race of Champions, leading all 20 laps after securing pole position.

Stanaway, an Aston Martin works driver and winner at both the GP2 and GP3 levels, dominated the annual event, which was held at Watkins Glen International with every driver competing in BMW Z4s.

In Stanaway's name, $2,500 dollars will be donated to the Justin Wilson Children's Fund.

His margin of victory was 4.8 seconds over Timmy Hill, the 2014 winner of the event. Jay Beasley, Chris Dymond and Ben Waddell rounded out the top five.

Even IndyCar team owner Sam Schmidt (who was paralyzed from the neck down in a racing crash 15 years ago) took part, utilizing CXC Simulations’ Motion Pro equipment and finishing 16th.

There were several incidents throughout the race with just eight of the 25 starters ending the race on the lead laps.
