@Members, the last official 24 hours event in 2020!

Get excited everyone! iRacing is presenting the 24hrs of Spa and RSR is entering with 4 cars! Our team of top tier drivers will be striving to maintain their history of stellar iRacing endurance race results with a team consisting of both familiar faces and first-timers to the RSR iRacing endurance team.

The race will be streamed from multiple perspectives so you don't miss a second of the action. Our built-in multiview plugin gives you the possibility to watch all streams at the same time!

Tune in to see familiar iRacing endurance veterans including @Raigore, @Puffpirat, @ramdrop and @Dutchtastic who finally returns to our GT3 line-up! We also have @Selly joining our lineup for the very first time.


Thoughts of some of our drivers:
@Nismo: "This will be my 7th 24 Hour race and the 2nd time on Spa; I'm pretty nervous regarding the pace still and also for Blanchimont being deadly. (Behind that fence theres gotta be a GT graveyard).

I Hope that we will do well and atleast finish.. But this is the first time being nervous for a race also due the fact we get only 100 incident points, there after every 20. What means like 4x every hour.

Still aiming for a good result, but yeah like I've said, to finish first you got to finish."
@CatchAGlimpse: "Excited for our next 24 hour adventure together, especially one so soon after our huge 24 hours of Le Mans victory last month. We now know together we can achieve the top step, so we are pushing to try and get another big win for the community.

Survival will be tough, Pouhon and Blanchimont in the Ferrari has unpredictable rear stability and the track itself very tight on track limits - ending the race under 100 incidents would be a massive achievement on its own."
@Shepard: "After some back and forth regarding the weapon of choice, we finally found something we are all happy with. YAY! Fezza for the win!

This will be my second 24h race in iRacing, and also my second 24h race in iRacing with James and Simon - Thx for having me again gents, it's a real pleasure!
Manu joined forces with us, so we have some less work to do, as Spa is naturally somewhat more demanding than Daytona, and a 4-man squad is probably the best way to do it. I am really looking forward to it, and hope we can keep the Xs low and soldier through the race till the very end. I didn't find the final pace yet, but laptimes are pretty consistent atm, so I think we will be fine. 24 hours is a long way to go, and probably we will see some early carnage, which we hopefully can avoid.

Let's get racing buddies!"
@grobi0815: "Ooooohh, it's time again for the second hardest race of the year.

And now that I reached the veteran status, I'm really looking forward to drive with my old friend @ramdrop. I think it's the second time with @David Siska and first time with our newbie @Selly (welcome in our community). We have a good and competitive team together and I hope that we can finish the race in a good position.

So have fun everyone! Best of luck for all teams!"
@Selly: "It is an honor for me to drive the 24h spa race with you.
It is my first race for and with you. after I was well received, I hope to meet the expectations of the community best and to be able to inspire you.

I hope that all teams get the best out of it and have fun!"
@Jamesl91: "This will be my Third 24 hr race this year and a first time at the legendary Spa circuit. I'm pleased to be racing with my Daytona teammates, @Darksi and @Shepard but equally pleased to be racing with @t0daY for the first time. Following on from a podium in the last 24 hr race at LeMans I'm hoping we can go one better this time, but, we first have to finish so clean, mistake free driving will be key. its surely going to be an exciting race!"
@Dutchtastic: "I have to admit, I got jealous seeing Puffi's special edit and wanted a new Dutchstop video. Literally the only reason, don't get all soggy.
Just jokin'! It's good to be back in the blue, so we're racing in blue. And what car to carry that nice blue color than having a Ford GT3 in the field! That meme idea to run the Ford for 24 hours became an actual plan and without much tinkering to the setup we got a really stable and solid car to drive. Looking forward to seeing where this adventure takes us.
Either keep reading or select what's in between already so you can read."
@1185323118: "2017 iSpa 24 was my first iRacing special event, my first with RSR Team as well, thus being back years later with the boys in the meme car means a lot to me. Driving the mememobile means more work than other cars, we have to develop a setup since no one is selling one, we also practice harder to be on par with other cars. So far the team effort in practice is great, looking forward to be the quickest Ford overall in this year's iSpa 24! #MakeFordGreatAgain"
@Exited: "Fourth 24h race this year and I have to say our progress and learning curve was quite steep. From binning it at Daytona after 18h, to finish 7th in class at Nordschleife to take P1 at Le Mans. So there is only one spot we are aiming for, because going backwards is never a good idea :p

After some catastrophic first practice I somewhat got into this game and it's GT3 again and so I'm looking forward quite confident to saturday. Really curious how this one will turn out as I would say this is quite a different endurance race, because the multiclass is lacking, but I'm pretty sure it will be a hard one!
Setup feels good, teammates were and are always good @Jeff[NL] @CatchAGlimpse @Nismo :)

Bring Saturday on!"

^It's a feature of the Ford.

When we get the team together and get the car on track, we already finished a large part of the meme. Then we did a great job for the most part, Tim qualifying in P16, getting to top 10 within the first hour; Konstantin and me manage to gain a little bit on leaders as our single stinting tyre strategy proven to be superior than the leaders: Konstantin get the car into top 5, and I take the car onto podium when leaders' strategy backfires. Then Tim got on the car again, putting mid 2:19 laps in the Ford, get the car up to 2nd, and led a lap in the pitlane when the leader pitted a lap earlier. Then Paul took over the car, he was very consistent initially, but then the fatal mistake happened.

It was great fun for 9 hours, not only for the team, but actually some other teams are amazed to see the Ford as well even praising the car through private message. And it is truely amazing that we kept the Ford running in top 5 for that long. It is a unfortunate end for the meme.

If you still want to see some meme action, I am now streaming for another Ford team in split 8, if anyone is interested. The meme must go on.

What I watch on streams makes me really proud of being a part of this family! You're doing great!

Btw, to whoever created for the beautiful liveries, is it possible to modify them to make them more recognizable in terms of different teams colors (i.e. team red, team blue end so on)?

due to the amount of different cars, it might be something thats too much work, possibly a brighter colours for the mirrors is an option. the LED colours for night driving make it quite clear
