TTL Esports – The End of an Era

Today TTL Esports is announcing that it has closed its doors.

One of Australia’s oldest sim racing teams, TTL Esports was formed in 2006 by Greg Stewart and Ian Travis. For the last 13 years we’ve continued to be one of the leading forces in Australian sim racing, with great success in disciplines as varied as the Cadillac CTS-V series, the iRacing V8 Supercar Series and V8SCOPS, the VRS GT World Championship Series, and more recently the World of Outlaws World Championship Series.

The team has not taken the decision lightly, but with many of its key members either no longer participating at all, or steadily reducing their participation with the team and sim racing more broadly, it was decided that it was better to finish with our heads held high – with the team still competing at a World Championship level in dirt and still having 3 cars finish in the top 10 in the most recent V8SCOPS round at Monza.

We look back fondly on the great years that many of us have had with the team, and we all will continue to enjoy sim racing as the great hobby it is in one way or another. Having said that, many of our dirt drivers will be forming a new team – Slick Simsport. Please check them out if you want to follow them in the World of Outlaws Series.

We wish all of our drivers the best for the future, and finish feeling incredibly proud of being part of such a fantastic team.

Dance Dominates At Knoxville

DOMINATION & CLEAN SWEEP FOR DANCE AT THE MAJORS SERIES KNOXVILLE NATIONALS!!!

It was total domination for the TTL Esports driver Cameron Dance at Knoxville Raceway for the 2018 Majors Series Knoxville Nationals which would be round 11 of the championship. Dance would lay the gauntlet down in qualifying by getting quick time and shooting straight to the top of the time sheets. With the fastest lap in qualifying, it would mean a pole position start for the heat and an easy win by almost 2 seconds to earn an automatic transfer to the A main.

For the 35 lap A main, Dance had one thing in sight, winning. Off the initial start there was no time wasted getting a good jump and building a decent sized lead however 2 cautions didn’t hinder Dance in any way as Dance would get a good jump on both restarts and end up taking a lights to flag victory to make it a clean sweep of pole, heat win, feature win and fastest lap.

Round 12 of the 2018 Majors Series will see us go from dirt to road for the Japanese Grand Prix in the McLaren MP4-30 Formula 1 car for what will be a very challenging event. As always thanks to the following people for their continued support behind the scenes.

Top 10 For Dance In Montreal

Top 10 result for Dance at round 2 of Porsche Supercup Australasia presented by GT Leagues Australia.

After missing round 1 due to other commitments but not losing anything thanks to the series having 2 drop rounds, the TTL Esports driver Cameron Dance set out to make an impact in what is a very strong field around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Qualifying didn’t go to plan at all struggling to get a lap in and having to start down in 19th place for race 1 of the two race format. Lap 1 would see a massive pile up around the middle of the pack which Dance would luckily weave his way through only coming away with some minor bodywork damage before a safety car was called due to the massive crash. Once the race went back to green Dance continued to make up a few positions before running out of time and crossing the line in 11th for race 1.

Race 2 of the night would go much better with Dance starting in P5 thanks to a reverse grid of the top 15 finishers from race 1. The start would see a great launch from Dance moving up into 2nd before the first turn and then go on the hunt for the race lead which he eventually gained and held for majority of the race. Unfortunately a late race spin caused Dance to fall back to just outside of the top 5 but he would recover to end up on the podium before being turned by another driver on the last lap and eventually crossing the line 7th.

Despite the results could of been better, we will take 8th place for the round and focus on the job ahead with the big picture in mind heading into round 3 in 2 weeks time.
