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!

Lambo Le Mans

16 hours to go

The first 8 hours have passed in the biggest simracing event of the year, the RaceDepartment 24 hours of Le Mans and it has been quite eventfull!

Of course we had the trouble with the fact one of our main drivers, Vincent Staal had internet troubles this morning, causing him to withdraw from the race even before it started. That was unfortunate since he was the fastest of the three drivers and with one down, only Beelen and Zondag were left, and having just 2 drivers to cover a 24 hour race was just not an option. Though, thanks to the great effort of Jan Wim Ensing of the SRVN team, he brought us to contact with Robbie Bouchoms and Bram Kuipers. Both new to endurance racing, but both fast simdrivers...

Robbie and Bram to the rescue!

At exactly 1 minute before the start of the 24 hours of Le Mans on RaceDepartment, the team is complete again. Former F1Cast Racing driver Robbie Bouchoms picked up the signal (thanks to Ensing of SRVN!)  and volunteered to get in the Lamborghini. Although he never tested the car, we have to try the best we can.

So we have what we need, to start the race and to actually finish it, at least with the drivers.

Robbie, good luck, as goes for the rest of the team!

Let’s go!!

UPDATE: Next to Robbie, also Bram Kuipers will join the team to race the Lamborghini! Since Robbie can’t race during the night and tomorrow, we needed a 4th driver and GNCR driver at SRVN was kind enough to step up the plate and do the job! Well done! And welcome to the race!
