Project CARS 2 - Mad March Hair-Raising Action
March was an action-packed month for everyone at RSR, with the opening three rounds of the 4th season of our Revolution Cup taking place, starting with an adrenaline-fuelled race at Monza. Split 1 saw SBart_uk taking the top spot, followed by Puffpirat and Alex Salmon. In Split 2 we saw drukqs take top honours, with the podium being rounded out by Stokemon and Dama_The_Crow. Race 2 took us to a cold and wet Silverstone, where tricky conditions brought some tricky racing, but the drivers battled on through the drying conditions, with Puffpirat taking the win, ProjectPD coming home in 2nd Place and fab. ICEMAN in 3rd spot for Split 1. Over in Split 2, Stokemon crossed the line in 1st Place, with Dama_The_Crow improving on his Monza finish by taking 2nd place and Ashnoom taking 3rd place. To close out the first half of the season, RSR headed East and into the night at Sakitto, with what was surely set to be an exciting race. Sakitto didn't disappoint! At the end of a tough race, ProjectPD came out on top in Split 1, with Feanor bringing his car home in 2nd place and Puffpirat taking the final podium spot in 3rd Place. In Split 2 we saw UnstopaPaul take his 1st win at RSR, with 2nd place going to Invincible and Mark rounding out the top 3.
Split 1 - Top 10 Standings
Split 2 - Top 10 Standings
Round 2 of the RSR/PRD Endurance Championship took us to a cloudy Fuji Speedway, where once again members from both communities competed in the LMP2 and GT3 classes over 2 hours.
>> Full results can be found here <<
We are proud to report that both classes in both lobbies were won by RSR members, with juggernaut Puffpirat leading the way with a grand slam in lobby 1. The RSR veteran earned pole position, won the race, and scored the fastest lap on his way to a dominant LMP2 class win. He was joined on the all RSR podium by returnee miagi and impressive rookie fab. ICEMAN. In GT3 Revolution Cup front-runner ProjectPD lead home stolnikas and PRD's Nooonotreally.
In lobby 2, RSR steward Nighttiger won in LMP2, beating PRD's Satchel_Charge and podium newcomer IJerichoI. It was another RSR clean sweep in GT3 with Ashnoom taking the honours ahead of 2scoops and Jesper Ramsberg. The battle of the communities resumes on the 22nd of April with the 2.4 hours of Spa, complete with full day/night/day transitions. Sign-ups are open now, this is one you don't want to miss!
rFactor 2 - Both Teams in action
Another action-packed month with both the return of the P1-Gaming 2018 series and the VLMS championship
The 6hrs of Road America hosted by P1-Gaming was a busy race with RSR entering 5 GT3 cars taking up 10% of the grid. Qualifying was tricky due to a drying track and resulted in our cars being spread throughout the GT3 field. The Race started off well for cars #115 and #118 who were running comfortably in the top 10. The rest of the cars were mid-rear of the field with car #114 being hit in the first corner and having to pit for repairs early on. Car #114 put in some front-running pace in a quest to catch the field and fight for positions. By the end of the race, only 2 cars were left This was due to VR issues causing 2 cars retire on safety grounds and 1 retiring due to damage. Car #114 and #118 finished the race in P15 and P16 respectively. This was not the results we were after, but we are already focused on Round 3 – 12Hrs of Bathurst in May.
March also saw the 4hrs of Silverstone in the VLMS series with Battenberg and The Wayfaerer taking to the typically wet track. There was a dry line for the start of the race with the team deciding to start on the Inter tyre hoping the rain would arrive quite early. Unfortunately, this didn’t pay off as the rain didn’t arrive until 1 lap after the first pit stop. With the rain coming down even heavier the team had to pit for full wet tires mid-race. The track remained wet throughout the race with the RSR car showing rare front-running pace to finish a very impressive P6 Congratulations guys!
