PostSubject: Hello chaps   Sun 5 Aug 2012 - 12:44

Hello guys, saw the post at SimHQ, greatly interested in running and writing with you gents.

Past experience:

2011 SCES (Endurance Series at SimHQ) GT1 Aston Martin, couple of reasonable results in my first season.
2012 SCES, Front runner though attracted some of the worst luck on the grid, 3 podiums, 1 2nd, 2 3rds. 10th overall in Combined Standings with 143 points, 6th in GT2. Cars Driven: Porsche GT2 for 4 events, Ferrari 1 event.

Currently active in:
SSTCC (Skoda Touring Cars, 2 race format, 30 minute races) 1 pole position, 2 wins, 5 podiums, in the GB series i placed 3rd overall. Now racing Scandinavian series.
F1 FSR series (non official FSR league at Core-Racing) currently challenging for 3rd overall in drivers standings, with 1 podium so far at Monaco, averaging 5th place finishes in races. Runs along the real F1 season.
Contesting a few races in V8 supercars at Core as well, but only selected events.

Currently looking for an endurance team to compete with, was a reserve driver at ERL, was going to be running with SimHQ there this coming season but unfortunatly at the last minute they have gone with someone else :(

Hello mr Hill, welcome to the forum. Its great that you are interested in racing with us. Marcel is the team boss so I expect he will explain what plans we have and where you might be able to help.

Hello Mr. Hill and welcome to the websites of our modest sim-racing team. Telling from your first informative responses you seem to be very interested in Endurances Racing among Online Leagues and writing articles from time to time; these are great news since we are looking for a fourth driver!

I want to be fair and let you know that the team is mainly concentrated on racing the 997 in GT2 class from the Enduracers Endurance Series Mod, which could prove to be a tricky task to some sim-racing friends. But challenges exist to tackle them and getting used to this particular car, may pay off in many ways.

Also, I'm a bit caught by surprise, so I'd like to suggest that we, you and the team, should look after a date to hold a informal meeting on Teamspeak, if you can agree to this.

Thank you for your interest!

P.S. Of course, until we meet for a chat you're welcome to use this forum to get us to know. Feel free to post messages, ask questions etc.; you can also contact me via pm. Don't be afraid!

Cheers, yeah im free most of the time whenever is good for you guys i can probably be on TS, i love the Porsches in endurance races so i think i can get used to the beast ;) i have alot of free time so i can pound the track and get to know the car quite a bit before any events :)

So how long have you guys raced together in these events? i browsed through and there was just loads and loads of races you guys have done

The team has done about 10 proper races since its founding by Marcel, I have done about 9 of them, Artur started a bit later and has done around 5.

2011-2012 Race Department Le Mans series 4 races (4th overall?)

2011 Endurance rfactor 6 hrs of Road Atlanta (8th in class)

2012 Endurance inside 3 races and a test race (4th overall)

Our best finish is 2nd twice

Wow awesome! well i hope to be a part of the first win with you guys ;) i am weak in developing setups that is one thing i know im weak on, but im usually consistant and a level headed guy on track, i dont like getting tangled in accidents so do what i can to avoid them :)

Just took the season opening race win in the Skoda Scandinavian series, but race 2 was a lacklustre performance with the added weight and i came home outside the points with the reverse grid enforced as well, but yeah looking to get my name on that winners list more than once! :)

i do have a blog for the SCES that i was doing when i had time, cant post links yet but i do have them if you guys want a read?

Congratulations on that win. I can vouch for the quality of that field and that was a very good result. I have raced with and against the guys from Average Drivers Club without beating them.

Yep Richard is about right. However he forgot to mention a class win not too long ago. But one should add that standards have been below average.

World Connect Competition had its first anniversary in the middle of June. However it had to overcome start-up difficulties like most projects. Some examples are, learning and understanding rFactor mechanics the hard way, finding team mates, understanding endurance racing with multiple classes, becoming a trustworthy team among the other participants and getting reliable on track to get competitive.

As a team we have done about ten races among different leagues (Race Department Le Mans Series Season 3, Endurance Inside International Cup 2012, Endurance rFactor) and a couple of single events, while test races and non-official races in race communities are not included. The team roster changed a couple of times but I believe we have now established a smallest possible core of drivers, Artur, Richard and myself, who are committed to these kind of races, which basically request for careful preparation, regular testing before the main event, but most of all a healthy team spirit and persistency since there are times when not everything goes as planned. One has to understand that these races are not won by a single driver, instead it's the whole team that must work together to achieve something. Worst case would be to betray the confidence of the team.

Our results in Multiple Class Racing so far:
2011 Endurance-rFactor - 6h of Road Atlanta: 8th in GT1 class (a reconnection tool was used)
2011/12 RDLMS S3 Championship in GT2 class: 6th (2 disconnect dnf's out of 5 races)
2012 EIIC 2012 Championship in GT2 class: 4th (3 races and 1 qualification race, a reconnection tool was used)

Have you done any multiple class races before? How long have they been or let me ask you the other way around if you don't mind, for how long would you be able to stay concentrated in the car? have you done driver swaps before? I mean "how familiar"are you with rFactor's driver swap feature?

Have you done any multiple class races before? yeah ive done quite a few multi class races, last years SCES had LMP1, LMP2, GT1 and GT2, i was in an Aston Martin GT1 and had to be very wary of things slower and faster. the season just gone i raced in a condensed field using just LMP2 and GT2 cars, i competed in a GT2 Porsche and did 1 race in the Ferrari

How long have they been? Last year they were 2 and a half hour single driver enduro's this season just gone they were shortened to 2 hours.

how long would you be able to stay concentrated in the car? Usually the full stint, i usually may run wide at a corner or two during that time but no major incidents of note, unless i get punted by someone else. I have raced in real world racing as well which has sort of helped in terms of concentration.

have you done driver swaps before? I mean "how familiar"are you with rFactor's driver swap feature?
I have but only a couple of times, so would need more practice with this feature.

Correct me if I am wrong. I think sces used the ilms mod. Enduracers has a quite different feeling, it can catch people by suprise. I have tried both mods

Thank you for your answers. It all sounds very promising.

Well I'm not familiar with the SCES but it looks like Richard knows more.

To make sure we are talking about the same rFactor Mod, here is a link: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

*not that ilms results and experience are not relevant. Quite the opposite.
