    • If you need to test settings use the practice server
    • Content download works only from the practice server

  4. Congrats to RSR for the overall win and to all finishing teams, that conquered the 12 hours on the Seb-Ring.:D

    Very proud of our 8 cars entered under the Rennsimulanten- and GTOmegaRacing-banner. All cars started, completed the whole distance and with 7 out of the 8 cars in the top half of GTE class it was highly successful aswell. :)

    Bit of a shame that only 36 cars started in total for all the hard work P1 gaming put in, but I guess for us it was good, because we could enter a second car with same driver lineup. 4 hours is not enough. :D

    For those 2 cars Quali was alright, P6 and P8 in class was about where we thought, we could end up. As was probably the case for most teams, we were suprised by the late change of pit stop regulations, meaning refueling and tyre-change were done seperately. We hadn't tested a double stint before and were discussing, how the tyres would hold up and actually a calculation error lead us to trying out doublestinting the softs. :eek: At first it looked like it was the wrong strategy, but as the stint went on the car actually got faster and the tyres remained stable, only losing about half a second on average to having new tyres. Maybe also only possible because of the setup, Dennis mainly came up with. The set was crap on one fast lap, but very consistent over a stint, I could do my fastest laps at the end of the stint actually. :D

    That got us the lead and the race went on totally unproblematic for #911. Others had little or bigger problems and in the end that meant it was a duel between #911 (yellow Manthey-ish one) and #991 (blue one). The yellow one was handed over from Dennis to Sven for the last stint and got new tyres which led to the car rejoining half a second behind the blue one which didnt need new tyres on its last stop. Wasn't planned or anything but led to an entertaining battle during the last hour against ourselves with a little bit of touring car style contact aswell. :D

    Quite funny actually and a shame that Markus' internet connection made problems at the end, but we had fun and enjoyed it a lot. :)

    Thanks for organizing anyway and to our teamchef Dobbie, the best teamchef of them all. :D

    Can´t say really much to this race because of working first half and only could participate second. Unfortunately i´ve had bad GPU perfomance and the first two stints in the dark gives me about 30FPS. But unexpectedly it was not that bad, physics runs optimal and i had to anticipate where the car ends with the lost frames by steering into the corner, what was really no fun in the first esses :rolleyes:. I came good into my rhythm and did two good stints without big issues, one time loosing car in the last esses and one time the rear in last corner without contact. Nothing gave me some hints to the issues i became in first of my last two stints. By downshifting from 3->2 in last corner i´ve got doubleshifts multiple times into first gear, first i crashed hardly into the wall, one´s again i could avoid an crash. I tried but failed by adapting on shifting in another way with lower rpm and crashed another time and gave over the car to my team mate for last 45min. I´d remember that time, that i renewed my player.json and forgot to set double-shift protection, but didn´t seen that issues in lot of testlaps o_O. Because of that, regarding my failure we lost one or two places and an really good result :(.

    Hope i will do better on Nords, but i´m sure i will do :). But first of all i hope, that we will see an maximum full grid!!!

    Ich sach ja noch:"Fluppe aus !!:D" Bei uns hat ja och die Box gequalmt, sei es die HD von Andre oder der Kopp vom CC:mad:
    Aber Spaß gab's ohne Ende, da hat der Stream/Chat meine Laune definitiv gerettet,
    in diesem Sinne auch nochmal Grats an alle vom schwierigen Racing Team SRT,

    What a race that was.

    Managed to put the #88 (huge thanks again to Adam for swapping numbers :) ) onto P2 in qualifying. After that the race had it's ups and downs for me which widened or shortened my gap to the current leader. After about 8 hours in the car @Manuel Duerr took over for a mandatory driver change and did a full stint at a really good pace. I got back into the car and we realised there's still a chance to get P2 if I push on. In the end it was a hard fought battle in which I was able to come out on top. It was a really good fight with Team RGPL throughout the end of the race which made it really fun.

    I wanted to thank the organisers (as always :p ), the stream team and all people from RevolutionSimRacing. Without their help this wouldn't have been possible.

    And after this race all I can do is getting even more excited for the N24 :D

    No. They use an older tire model and we dont want to mix both. So nobody can complain over differences of the tires ;)

    Gents, I apologise for messing up the live timing with a 2m 33 sec lap.
    I was trying to warm the tyres and went around the gp circuit twice.

    Yes. But changes done by the team manager work only for gt3. For touring you need to contact an admin.

    Did we need new templates for skins?
