    Race report by Southern Cross Racing (David O'Reily)

    Southern Cross Racing Nordschliefe 24 Hours Report
    Car ISI Nissan GTR GT1 (BOP GT3)
    Drivers
    David O'Reilly -Australia
    Sharjeel Riaz- UK
    Rui Martins- Portugal
    Georg Winter- Germany

    Firstly and lastly thanks to Frederic Schornstien and his team who conceived the idea, developed and tested the BOP mods, and organised the event.
    It was truly amazing.

    So much action and experience for so many people. Here are just a few of ours.

    We are a very new team with a mix of driver experience levels a kind of a “development team” and had a big learning curve.
    A last minute driver change gave meant some set up compromises had to be tested but we came out the other side with a set that worked for all 4 drivers.

    In the final race set we paid special attention to vehicle life and the race set had lower rev limit and a longer top gear to save the engine.

    We started P8 and had some nice battles in the first 2hours as we were attacked and passed by a very fast 911. We were then attacked and managed to fight back and re-pass a second 911 and seemed to consolidate P8. We did have one moment in P3 when all but 3 cars pitted after lap 7.
    We had slight damage but the car felt fine so did not repair.

    Our second stint of 2 hours saw us still holding P10 as night started to fall. The driver reported the cars handling feeling strange and struggled to find his normal pace.

    The third stint saw the car handling very poorly. It seemed that some unrepairable damage had got worse or that we now had unrepairable damage. After trying for a couple of laps and finding we were losing 15 sec/lap the decision was made to exit the server and rejoin.
    The process cost about 2 laps (first lap while we went through it twice and the second lap does not count to accurately replicate time loss through a significant repair. We slid down the table to about P16.
    Soon after the rejoin our driver suffered a PC crash and we had to re enter the server again, for the loss of another 2 laps. We were now dead last and 5 laps down on the lead lap. Our target was now to try to reach the #1 Touring class car. The driver found his feel and requested/extended his stint 3 hours.

    He passed the car to driver #4 who then passed it back to me. It was now pitch black and I discovered the importance of the lighting in your room. Even the status screen seemed to glare so I switched it off. Glare etc was making it very tough. At the pit stop I turned lights off and moved lamps and the difference was huge allowing me to set a PB.
    After a gruelling 2 hours I handed the car to Sharjeel as the dawn threatened to break over “The Ring”

    The night went on and at my bed time of 4:30 am we were sitting in about P14 and last of the GT3s. Our “Night-watchman” was now alone in TS. I was worried that the next driver would arrive but figured that without sleep I was no use anyway.

    I woke at 8am and the first thing I did was switch on the live timing to see if we were still racing! Amazingly we had climbed to P9.
    On entering TS I got a message “really sorry slept through the alarm”. What had happened?
    Sharjeel had found that after 2 hours of night-dawn driving no-one arrived to take over. He simply carried on and did a 4 hour stint. No superstar lap times. Just plugging away for 4 hours keeping it clean and we were back in the top 10 with a chance to attack other GT3 cars.
    “Cometh The Hour Cometh the Man”
    It was the stint that literally kept us in the race.
    The next stint saw the car again with unseen damage requiring a server exit. It was getting front tyre wear at 12%/lap and undrive-able (bloody Japanese suspension!).
    At least we were getting really good at exiting the server now. Especially Georg as it was his job all three times. We were now down to P11 and not fighting or leading any GT3 cars for now. Georg had a very fast stint, setting purple sector 1 and going sub 8:30 for the first time.
    As team leader I would cross my fingers for luck when Georg started going so fast.
    There was one comedy moment when Georg lost the car and suffered damage at Kostertal the 210 kph 4th gear left hander at about 11km. You would know it as the first braking zone after the fast run along the valley floor.
    David “Were you pushing too hard”
    Georg “No it wasn't that at all I just counter-steered a little too much at exit of Kostertal” (balancing a drifting car at 210 kph!).

    Georg was happy to wait till his stop but after our experiences with our Japanese suspension parts we asked him to repair.
    84 seconds of repairs and an unscheduled stop.
    Georg's stunning pace and the repair about evened out to a good strong stint.

    We still had a real chance to catch the leading touring car.
    We did the maths, they were over 4 laps ahead. With a lap time delta of 40-45 sec It takes about 12 laps to unlap from a Touring car. We had a GT3 1 lap ahead but even with a 10 sec delta that would take 54 laps and about 7 hours.

    As our driver headed into his first hour at 11am we had 35 laps left and we needed at least 30 sec a lap on the Touring cars. It wasn't quite coming together for him and we had a team meeting. We could either be very fair or be very pragmatic and effective. We had come to race and it was time to think more like Toto Wolfe. We shortened his stint by one hour, handing it to myself 1 hour early. I took the car at 12:00.
    The lead Touring car was over two 9 minute laps laps ahead.

    After the night time stints the visibility seemed ultra-HD. The car felt great. I was matching and beating my race PB and doing steady 8:37 + or- 0.5 sec

    Close to the end of 2 hours we decided to either put Georg or leave David into the car. Georg had had enough driving (and probably having to leave and enter the server too!) so I kept the car.
    We passed the # 2 touring car of Weber when they had to leave the server and re enter).
    We were now in the top 10. It felt already like a victory.
    The third hour of the stint (23rd hour of the race) felt even better.
    Although he was many laps ahead we were closing on track in the car in P2.

    With one hour to go we decided to leave me in the car again but should we pass the Touring car of Rieterer for P9 and have enough breathing space we would do a quick driver swap and put “The Night-watchman” Sharjeel in the car for the honour of taking the chequered flag. We couldn’t work out how many laps were left, unsure if it was the next time the leader crossed the line after 24 hours so we brimmed the tank.
    Just in case we needed to get an 8th lap from the tank (not possible at race pace in the GTR) I started experimenting with fuel saving. I short-shifted on my first timed lap after the stop (100 litres of fuel on board).
    Sharjeel came on the radio “David you just went purple in sector one”.
    I ended the lap with 400ml more fuel used! Figure that one out?
    A new PB of 8:35 came up.

    We closed on the Touring car of Rieterer. Every lap the team would give me the gap.
    3 minutes, 2 mins 20, 1 minute 40, one minute, 40 seconds. We had 2 laps left, after 4 hours of focus we were going to do it.

    With a lap and half to go we were + 12 sec!
    But then Freddy came on TS and whispered that the last lap was a formation finish, a parade lap, no passing.
    We quickly spoke with him about our 4 hour chase and our fight for P9. He allowed us to pass as we were in separate classes anyway.
    We didn't have the luxury of giving the honours to another driver to take the flag.
    It was done, P9.
    We were all euphoric. The best thing any of us have ever done in Sim-Racing.
    We had done it. The toughest race on the toughest track in the toughest simulation.
    Car set up compromises, exhaustion, sleep deprivation, pressure.

    I want to thank the team for all their work. We are 4 very different guys from different countries, cultures and sim racing experiences. But we made it work. I also want to thank them for letting me selfishly (in part) keep the car for 4 hours of the most fun I have ever had in sim racing.

    Even the winners and P2 had suffered from a reconnect, but we had suffered more than our share and kept fighting.
    Stand up guys and be proud, you are endurance racers.

    Race report by Team Bockbierbude.de (René von Dobschütz)

    Hello guys,

    sorry, my english isn´t so good, too. But i would do the report also in english, because i want to thank every one and every team in same wise.

    I´ve had the same flash like Markus. It was the second 24h after last year at SRD.de and i wasn´t sure to top it in emotions and teamspirit. Our team was build out of 12 guys. To declare the Bockbierbude.de, we are an community without every commitment or pro status. We drive every Monday and Friday some single races, mostly in rF1 and umcoming in rF2, every with different mod and different tracks. We do an practise of ca. 25min, the same for quali and races from around 60-90 minutes. We do some pointed series in the same procedure but eben without any commitment. No one drives in pro leagues.

    Many of us 12 drivers life near NOS, arround 150km and i see it like privilege to visit this historic race spot some times in the year. So it was no question to try the biggest challenge virtual.
    Some talent guys quite faster than the most other and we do them on the team one, the Z4. They qualified for P2 and i expected them to have the biggest chances for an good result. But with our GTR from P5 i looked forward to save this place at the end of the race.
    Because one guy from GT-R and one from McLaren drove on E90 we had to sync the stints of these three cars. That wasn´t easy. We realised arround the qualis with end-setup, that we could do 8-lap stints if we save a little bit. Because tyre wear could be up to 15% in very fast laps we could save them too and wear them arround 6%/lap on front axle. We expected the other teams only could go for 7 laps and thought that this fact works for us. On Friday evening!!! we found that the McLaren could go 8 laps too. Because not every driver of the car had tested it on Friday we fixed the stintplan in running race. Fortunately there were no collision.
    My start on GT-R wasn´t like i expected. On Friday some graphic options tested i made as mistake in nVidia options. I had arround 30fps and felt not so good. As i collided with Frederik´s Corvette in formationlap i was first time confused. Good for my mind that he lost connection short after this, because i´m not sure if the problem was on him or on me. The grid let me passed to my starting position and from that the race goes really good.
    Every car of us could save position in the first stints. I had an issue on Schwedenkreuz an layed my car on roof in slowmo, but nothing had broken and i didn´t loose a lot, only around 30 seconds. Everything in the team went quite expected until the night comes. The Z4 has had an double disconnect after driver swat. With this they lost a lot laps in early race and all chances to be unexpected winner were gone. Because of the same problems on the Camaro and another problems on the Corvette our GT-R crept on and on into second position. We hadn´t any great issues that broke our stintplan and we could hold it nearly on the minute. Only that i planed 5 minutes additional time ervery 5 stints for reparation brought it out of plan, -because there were no need to make long repairs. [​IMG]
    As we had no problems on the GT-R, even the McLaren became problems like bad frames and stuttering and disconnects too. The E90 fought against very faster Honda´s and lost a lot in the first stints.
    It was the logical result of that all, that we drove on P2 with the GT-R in the middle of the night. Early we had two laps gap to the 3wide Z4, but we don´t have looked to reach them in any time of the race. Too very different were the laptimes and we are not able to go faster, particularly because of out stint plan and the tyres. Perhaps i had could go some 8:28 times, but it never had reached to attack Peter, Marius and Carsten. We had good pulse because of our gap to P3 with even around 2 laps and looked forward to drive safe stints and make second place on podium.
    But every changes after 18 hours. We fright up out of lethargy as we saw the leading Z4 in trouble. We hadn´t expect that this could so dramatic and the race became such exciting turn. Personally i hoped that the Z4 came back in race and i communicate this to them via chat. Surely, no one ask how you win an race over 24h, but that´s not the way you would to win. I´m happy that we could mess us with them and bring some good entertainment to the stream. Tobi droves his first leading laps on an 24h Nordschleifen-Race. Even for that everything was worth. And the same feeling for me! I knew from Tobi´s Stint that we got a lot of stream-time and it was an big challenge on Sunday morning, i don´t slept since Saturday 9am. [​IMG] Big thanks to Red Bull [​IMG].
    I took the GT-R and tried to hold the gap as long as i could. I could drive a good performance, even i had a light impact on Sprunghügel. I lost nearly 10 km/h on Döttinger Höhe, but we were not sure if it was from the impact, because Tobi noticed this at the end of his stint too. Sidestep: we found our Setup on wing configuration 1/13. Big thanks to our Stephan Kock, who had created this great setup. It makes possible to drive 298km/h and to save fuel. I think it could not be more perfect.
    I tried to make it not to easy for 3wide to overtake me and stole them some seconds, because we speculate to get an last chance by our strategy, but the box realised to be before our timescale and have to make an splash and dash short before end. Nevertheless we thought it could go out in this way under perfect circumstances. But -maybe in fair justice- we got our trouble nearly two hours before end. Stephan renounced early to drove the GT-R again to got the best result, so Tobi took it up for the last stints. And just now we got trouble by disconnect. So we lost the the two laps we had before the issues on the 3wide, but now we had to look backwards, because now we was in same lap with the very fast Corvette from TXL team. They drove furious laptimes and we don´t permit any failures. They made this failure and had to repair the Corvette once more and we could drove it relaxed to the finish line. Because of an mega lag after rejoin on Flugplatz Tobi crashed himself, but without further damages.

    I´m sure never again came so near to an winning chance of such an big race. But no one is disappointed about it, because it was a good feeling, a very great experience, to lead such an race and felt like an winner. That the win goes to 3wide is more than deserved! They were fast, everyone, they made less failures and they had luck with the systems. Everyone had some issues, but they and us at least.

    So last but not least grats to everyone who had made the 24h and also my thankss to everyone who had organised and commented it. It was really really really great!!!

    I would final declare, why i drove the GT-R. It was only because i did my first and only win in my online career in Summer with the GT-R on..... one hour Bathurst. And unfortunately i would not could drive the 12h in February. [​IMG] Maybe the circumstances changes, but at this time it don´t seems so.
    But we would see us next year on one or two longruns, that´s sure!!!

    I hope it wasn´t to bad english. I wish you all the best, merry christmas and happy new year and see you 2016...

    Race report by GT Competizione - AVM ( João Nuno Nunes)

    Hi everyone!!

    In advance my main language is portuguese, so pardon any mistake that i will propabably type in this race report, but i guess you all gonna get the point of it xD I'm speaking in name of Gt Competizione - Avm I.

    The time has come, the race was ready....24h after that our happiness was so big that almost matched our exhaustion levels!!

    But let me start from the beginning!

    As some of you know, or may not, we are part of a Portuguese community based on Rf1(Gt Competizione), that is actualy a brand with around 12 Race Centers all over Portugal.
    Our race center is in Mafra, a small town near Lisbon, to be more precise it is called Autodromo Virtual de Mafra.

    All started with our team mannager, Paulo Honorato, telling us in a joke tone, "hey, there is gonna be a 24h in the GreenHell, it would be nice..." he had no chance after that, fast we got togetter and decided that we had to participate, and get a team running on this event!!

    Paulo Honorato, Flavio Domingues, Jorge Duarte, João Beato and João Nunes, those are our drivers, most of them with one year or less experience on simRacing knew from the beggining that we were gonna probably race against very experienced ones, not gonna be easy, but we are in!

    Its race time!!
    Jorge Duarte, is the man on the wheel to start our "adventure through the woods", as our faster driver on the Qualy races, and the one with more experience on the track battles, he had to be the one having the honor of the start!!
    with a 10º place on the grid, 9º caused by #1 TXL GT Racing's disconnect. with ambition to keep it till the end, all was going acording to the plans!! doing straight 4h stints, Jorge mannaged to get the car back to the 9º place after losing some positions on the 1st and 2nd lap, and going to pits about every 50 min!

    Flavio Domingues, our 2nd driver on the field, from 9º to 7º on the 1st 2hours, going good!! from 7º to 5º caused by some more disconnects and our regular pace, with barely no time spent repairing damage, we were all super exited, and at the end of his stint after calling the pit crew and ready to pass the car to Paulo Honorato, he got distracted and missed the pit entry, ending on a rejoin because we were left with 6L on the tank and it was impossible to finish the lap.

    Paulo Honorato gets the car at 9th place, but soon, as we finish the 1 lap counting after the rejoin, we fall to 14th place. to bad, but there is still plenty of time, we can do it! go go go!! but, one miss calculation of the fuel during his stint ended up with the car running out of gas at the end of one lap, probably 2/3 km away from the pit, one more rejoin to count!

    Joao Beato, our golden kid!!go go push it!!! at the age of 17, with no drivers license or even knowing for what the clutch is ment for, gets the car at 14th place, marks our best lap time, 8:34.2xx, beating our qualy times, and gets the 911 back to 10th place.

    Joao Nunes, the 911, pited at 10th place but loses a place during the pit-stop, mannaged to get the 10th place back, and was ready to keep trying to go higher on the grid, but on my 2nd lap, dunno if i did a mistake or just hitted some weird structure at the entering of the old track, that left the 911 with massive damage, made me perform a full lap under 170km/h with a uncontrolable peace of steel. pitted in 372s repair... 16th place! back to track, and on the next lap, just getting under 3rd secctor, we got a disconnect, more to laps not counting and the 911 back to 19 place...ho well Sh@t happens!! had time to get the car back to 17th place.

    Favio Domingues, gets the car at 17th place, and with his regularity got the car back to 15th place, hard job at this time, afte getting the car rolling that low on the grid and some of them were 1/2laps ahead of us, but we were here to cross the finish line!!

    Joao Beato, the one to put an end to the 24th hours of "roaring" on the woods with our loved 911, that never let us down!! the hard work had to be done, since closing the gaps 20hours deep into the race was even harder, and from that 15th place to our last, but not least 12th!

    From one invite in form of a "joke" to and end out of our 2nd objective as a team (finishing top 10), and 24h later, we can proudly say! well done team, great job!! it was the 1st 24h race to me, Jorge, Flavio and João, only Paulo had this kind of experience, with international drivers with some ligth years of experience comparing to us, so it was positive!

    From human mistakes to some lack of luck, we are just waiting the next one to come!! more than a challenge it was a pleasure to drive at Nords24, from the driving experience to all the brotherhood we lived at AVM's place during that time!!

    One realy thumbs up to all the drivers, really good behavior on track and always with a positive feeling!!

    Hope to see you all soon, cumpliments from all the team;

    Gt Competizione - AVM

    Race report by 3wide-Motorsport (Peter Grau)

    English translation (not word by word but I hope it's alright)

    ...yes what should we say?

    At the end it was a deserved vitory from our perspective, but it was a victory about which you are very happy, but not 100%. At the beginning of the race already several top teams run into trouble. Thats something you don't wish anybody in the field but due to that we were already relatively secure in the early stages of the race.

    Basically perfect and we already had an eye on our first start/finish victory... Yes that would have been brilliant... BUT ... it wouldn't be online spart if that was just easy peasy. In terms of driving we are all save. It was really relaxed on Teamspeak and the gap was big.

    We had small brake problems which we ignored ... first mistake ... what followed was an impact with that brought more issues. The first attempt to repair the damage in the pits cost us 2.5 laps, but we were still in the lead. Carsten Wilhelm suggested to stop a bit earlier after the repair ... as we said the brake ... actually it should be alright, but it was not. We never had a brake failure in a 24h race. After the next driver swap I also had to report a weird brake.

    At some point it was game over and of course with no brake pressure we had a big impact. Amazing how fast a gap can diminish. You could see it live. Two attempts to get rid of the damage failed. We had to wake up Caesten (thanks god that is possible nowadays) and only after that driver swap the wheel was straight again. Strangely hte brake worked again, but only a few laps. Before that swap the brake overheated but with Carsten in the car the temps sky rocketed. Another swap to Marius solved the issue. Rfactor is funny you get a new brake, but the overheating stays.

    At the end we tried to catch the leading guys from Bockbierbudenracing II which we achieved and with a hard maneuver we could retake the lead and build a gap. At the end two mistakes by Bockbierbudenraing II lead to us having relaxed last two hours. Even if we had a slight domination you can see clearly that it is not easy to just win the race.

    Congratulations to Bockbierbudenracing II and TXL GT Racing. Congratulations to the Touring class podium as well (Simracing-deutschland Touring and Racing Accociation I and II)

    A special thanks to the staff and the stream commentators from P1-Gaming. Guys that was "easy" with you. You did a great job without forgetting to react on suggestions by the teams. You found always a perfect balance.

    Thanks a lot for the great event!!!

    Team 3wide-Motorsport



    Originial Version in German:
    ...ja was sollen wir sagen...

    letztendlich war es aus unserer sicht zwar ein verdienter sieg, aber auch ein sieg über den man sich zwar riesig freut, aber mit dem man nicht so ganz glücklich ist. schon am anfang des rennens hatte es etliche Mitkonkurrenten erwischt. so etwas wünscht sich natürlich niemand im Feld... aber... bedingt dadurch sind wir schon in einer frühen Phase des rennens relativ sicher unterwegs gewesen.

    eigentlich perfekt und wir hatten schon mit einem auge auf den ersten start/ziel sieg geschaut.... ja das wäre der hammer gewesen... aber... es wäre kein online Sport, wenn das mal eben so gehen würde. fahrtechnisch waren wir alle sicher. im teamspeak wurde es auch richtig locker, der vorsprung war groß.... anfängliche Probleme auf der bremse haben wir ignoriert.... erster fehler.... was folgte war ein einschlag mit weiterführenden Problemen.... der erste versuch den schaden in der box zu beheben hat uns 2,5 runden in führung liegend zwar keine zeit gekostet, aber Carsten Wilhelm meinte wir ziehen den nächsten stopp vor... wie gesagt die bremse... eigentlich sollte damit alles erledigt sein... na ja war es nicht... noch nie hatten wir einen bremsschaden in einem 24er... ging ja nach dem welchsel auf mich mal locker weiter.... nach der übergabe des fahrzeugs an Marius Bert musste ich dann aber auch vermelden, das die bremse etwas seltsam gewesen war.

    Irgendwann war dann schluß mit lustig und logischer weise folgte dem fehlenden bremsdruck der entsprechende einschlag.... wie schnell dann so ein vorsprung schmilzt, konnte man ja live verfolgen... zwei versuche den schaden los zu werden schlugen fehl... wir mussten Carsten wecken (Gott sei dank geht das heute) und erst danach stand das Lenkrad wieder gerade... komischer weise funktionierte die bremse auch wieder... aber nur ein paar runden lang... vorher war es so, dass die bremse einfach nur überhitzte... aber bei Carsten ist sie dann richtig hochgegangen... erneuter wechsel auf Marius schaffte dann wirklich abhilfe.... rfactor ist geil ..... man bekommt neue bremsscheiben... aber.. das überhitzen blieb.

    zum schluß haben wir dann versucht auf die in Führung liegenden jungs von BBB II aufzuschließen. das ist uns gelungen und mit einem harten Manöver konnten wir die Führung wieder übernehmen und ausbauen... letztendlich haben zwei fehler des Teams bbb II dafür gesorgt, das wir entspannte letzte 2 stunden hatten... Auch wenn wir zwar leicht überlegen waren, sieht doch auch ganz klar, das es nicht so einfach ist, mal eben den sieg rauszufahren.

    Glückwunsch an BBB II und TXL GT Racing... Glückwunsch auch an das Podium der Touring Car Klasse...SRD TRG und den beiden Teams von Racing Assotiation.de

    einen besonderen Dank an die ORGA und an die Stream Kommentatoren von P1-Gaming... Jungs das war easy mit euch... ihr habt einen klasse Job gemacht, ohne zu vergessen auf die vorschläge und Anregungen der Teams zu hören... ihr habt dabei immer die perfekte Mischung gefunden...


    Vielen Dank für das tolle Event!!!

    Race report by TXL GT Racing (Christian Michel)

    English translation (not word by word but I hope it's alright)
    The race was ill-fated for me as I was sick the whole week. Usually I planned to use the week to get used to the car, because I didnt really got to drive the car/setup until the race. My training was limited to three laps on Friday and three laps on Sunday of which I only finished two without an accident.

    Bevor the race Frederic had problems with his graphics settings. Stupid that it cost us around 12min right from the start. Therefore we took a lot of risks from the start. For me pesonally that was not nice with my six practice laps. My first stint was basically to get used to everything, but from the second stint onwards it was going pretty well which suprised me. I didnt expect to have such a good pace. Until the start of the night it was running ok for us .. no big issues .. until Simon had a disconnect which cost us another 1.5 laps. Around 4h before the end of the race I found out that my teammates drove with the nice auto-clutch with which the car was suddenly a dream to drove. Before that I was always on the edge of what was possible. Unfortunately I touched the stupid guard rail right at the start of the Nordschleife on the second lap of my stint and the whole suspension was broken. The car was undriveable even with the speed limiter on.
    After the following repair and driver swap Simon had a problem with his brake which was always on around 5% and therefore cost us some time. As I got in the car for the last stint the wheel was not straight and strangely I had engine issues. All gear shift points were not working anymore. It was a bit sad as the car was a dream on my last stint thatnks to the auto-clutch and I would have liked to take the fastest lap :)

    Comment by Frederic: I got the fastest lap for us :p

    Originial Version in German:

    Das Rennen stand für mich eigentlich in gar keinem so guten Licht da ich die ganze Woche über krank war...normalerweise hatte ich vor die Woche zu nutzen um mich etwas an das Fahrzeug zu gewöhnen da ich mit dem Auto/Setup eigentlich noch gar nicht gefahren war bis dahin...mein Training beschränkte sich dann auf ganze drei Runden am Freitag und drei Runden am Samstag, wovon ich nur zwei zusammengebracht habe ohne Unfall.

    Vor dem Rennen hatte Frederic dann leider die Probleme mit seinen Grafik Settings...blöd nur das es uns direkt ca. 12 Minuten gekostet hat...somit war für uns von Anfang an viel Risko angesagt...für mich persönlich war das natürlich alles andere als schön mit meinen sechs Trainingsrunden...der mein erster Stint war mehr oder weniger um mich an alles zu gewöhnen, ab dem zweiten Stint lief es dann doch recht gut was mich eigentlich schon etwas gewundert hat, hätte nicht damit gerechnet so eine gute Pace zu haben. Bis in die Nacht lief es soweit eigentlich ganz ok für uns...keine gröberen Probleme...bis Simon dann leider einen DC hatte welcher uns wieder 1,5 Runden gekostet hat. Wie ich ca. 4h vor Ende des Rennens Erfahren habe fuhren meine Teamkollegen mit der tollen Autokupplung, womit das Auto urplötzlich ein Traum zu fahren war...vorher ständig an der Grenze des möglichen. Leider habe ich dann direkt in der zweiten Runde diese blöde Leitplanke Eingangs der Nordschleife touchiert...damit war die komplette Aufhängung dahin...das Auto war selbst mit Speedlimiter kaum auf der Straße zu halten. [​IMG]
    Nach meinem anschließenden Fahrerwechsel zu Simon hatte er dann ein Problem mit seiner Bremse welche ständig auf ca. 5% aktiv war und ihm somit einiges an Zeit gekostet hat...als ich dann für den letzten Stint wieder ins Auto ging stand zunächst einmal die Lenkung unseres Autos schief...und komischerweise hatte ich auch Motorprobleme, alle Schaltpunkte haben nicht mehr gepasst wie das vorher der Fall gewesen ist. Schade drum denn in meinem letzten Stint war das Auto bedingt durch die tolle Autokupplung ein Traum...und ich hätte mir gerne noch die schnellste Runde geholt... ;-)

    I want to say thank you to everyone for the great weekend. For me it is always a difficult task to live up the expectatoins of the international drivers. First time we commentated in two languages and I hope that we can get even better with that in the future. I got to know a lot of new drivers during the event and I hope to see you all again soon. I am still "mega falshed" from this weekend and more than happy that everything went so smoothly. I am already looking forward to the next races and the tasks, the being together and everything around that. Everybody was respectful with one and that screams for more. You are all great :)

    Originial version in German:
    Leider ist mein Englisch nicht ganz so gut, aber ich möchte mich nochmal bei allen für das tolle Wochenende bedanken. Für mich ist es immer eine sehr schwierige Aufgabe den internationalen Fahrern gerecht zu werden. Erstmals haben wir in zwei Sprachen kommentiert und ich hoffe das wir das in Zukunft noch besser hin bekommen. Ich konnte auch bei diesem Event wieder viele neue Fahrer kennen lernen und hoffe euch alle bald wieder zusehen. Ich bin immer noch mega geflasht vom Wochenende und überglücklich das es so toll geklappt hat. Ich freu mich jetzt schon auf die kommenden Rennen und Aufgaben und das ganze Miteinander und drum rum. Alle sind respektvoll miteinander umgegangen und das schreit nach mehr. Ihr seid alle großartig [​IMG]
