F1Cast Racing is dood, leve XPC-Racing!

Vanaf 1 januari 2014 zal het team F1Cast Racing een nieuwe naam dragen: XPC-Racing!

Na jaren van het dragen van de naam van dé podcast over de Formule 1, F1Cast, zal het team vanaf januari 2014 door het leven gaan met de nieuwe naam, die verwijst naar Experience The Experience – Ervaar autosport zoals je nog nooit hebt gedaan. Als virtueel simrace team, en op het echte circuits met enerverende ervaringen op het gebied van de autosport. Meerijden met een coureur, mee werken tijdens races, of zelfs zélf rijden op het circuit!

Deze website zal als archief bewaard blijven, om alle verhalen uit het verleden een museumwaardige plek te gunnen. De nieuwe activiteiten gaan door op!

Lambo le mans finish

24h of Le Mans: Craziest event ever!

Le Mans. Race fans love it. Why? Because it is insane! It is absolute crazy to race in a car for 24 hours. A whole day. What nutcase came up with this idea. And to make it even worse, to do this behind your computer, with a Steering device, lots of Red Bull and your team mates on Teamspeak. But insanity and pure pleasure is sometimes hard to tell apart. This is such a case.

It has been the hardest race we’ve ever done. This race made all the previous races look easy. A lot can happen in 24 hours. Well, lets refrase that to a lot WILL happen. And a lot happened. We’ve had server crashes, computer crashes, and too bad to say, car crashes. But that’s all part of the game. Endurance.

Team manager Zondag tells about the race: “The last 6 hours was surviving...

Lambo le mans night

Difficult night

Le Mans is special, not only because it’s history, but for any driver, it’s the fact you drive through the night. The night is a referee for a lot of cars, drivers and teams. For us, it was a hard night.

It began all well with Bram Beelen who did a solid 3 stint race, consolidating the position we had on p6 after the restart of the server crash we had just before 2 am. Zondag took over the Lamborghini, going for at least some more consilidation. It didn’t go as planned. At 6 am we suffered another server crash, after Zondag did almost 2 stints and did actually pretty good. We got to P5, with only 30 seconds behind numer 4. The first signs of the morning was visable, and the night almost seemed over. But after the restart it went all downhill...

Lambo le Mans 2

Halfway through and still running!

12 Hours left, 12 to go! It’s almost 2 am here in Holland, and we’re ready to take the last part of the race! A half hour ago we had another server crash, which is in simracing terms a full course yellow, so the race time continued. It gave us an oportunity to refresh the tyres and fuel up the car and started racing again.

First of all, we’re glad we could race at all. Thanks to Robbie and Bram Kuipers who helped us out driving 4 serious stints. Maybe not the fastest, but at least we drove! We’re at P6 at the moment, and Beelen is back at the wheel. Let’s see what he and Zondag can do in the next 6 ‘graveyard hours’ and where we are when the first sunlight will luminate  the track again.

So far, so good. Still running, still not that big of problems, so let’s stay focused and race!
