Racing GT3s with the XFactorRacing league round 8 race 2 at Imola 94, this was a much better race!
This is probably the most ground-breaking video of this summer, when it comes to simracing and the community surrounding it...
I, as an original backer of the first game, was smiling broadly for 22 minutes. Hit the nail on the head in the most savage and satisfying way I could imagine.
It may not concern rF2 directly, but it sure does indirectly, taking Ermins respect for rF2 into consideration. It's worth every watch in my humble opinion.
A less sarcastical video has been released
It has the same points, it has a slightly more pragmatic approach, but it still deals with the elefant in the room. The mess, the unscrupulous Ian Bell and company has left in their wake.
And why their actions, morally shouldn't be a fruitful business.
2 Lap race in the Ferrari 2004 around the Nurburgring. 19 AI cars @ 95% difficulty, using a mix of ASR F2004's, FW26's and S397 McLaren MP4/13 (added in for visual variety, as they're a bit down in HP compared to the 2004 cars).
I'm not sure why, but this race felt relatively easy. Still a couple of mistakes but perhaps the F2004's handling suits me more than the Williams FW26. I guess 100%'s the next step with this car/track combo.
This one's for me mate Stuart, who through these videos has decided to get into sim racing! Toppy A.K.A. Mark also gets a mention cause its his AIW im racing against. God Laguna Seca is such a fecking amazing track!
Commentary and history of the track included!
Racing GT3s with the XFactorRacing league round 9 race 1 at Brno, this track is super hard on tyres, lots of off camper high speed corners.
I managed to take first place in race 2 at Brno
Hope you have recorded your race line for a new AIW for this track
To be honest I haven't even run it with AI, is it bad? If so I'll knock one out
yes, imho much to slow. I think a good fastest line could gain 5 secs
Here is a look at the upcoming update to the 1967 Endurance mod (which will also include some of those FvF / LM '66 Hollywood Movie Star Cars as a bonus). Taking them for a drive around Longford. In this vid the GT40-style cars are based on '66, the rest are '67.
I also tried some Super-8 film simulation
Also includes the accidental horn triggering cause by a not perfect connection between my t300 rim and tspc base (so you know when i'm pulling on the wheel in a panic)

Preview of the upcoming version of the 1967 Endurance mod (by woochoo and mantasisg) which is a modified Howston G4 from Studio 397. As shown, it will soon include some cars from 1966 (number 1, and number 2 feature here).
These cars are inspired by Le Mans of 1966 and 1967.
Unfortunately the car I was driving (the red #21 car from 1967, headlights on) was using the LM gear ratios which are a little long for Longford. A slightly shorter set would have been useful. The real life #21 car made it's way to Australia after the 1967 season and set the lap record at Longford in 1968, driven by Chris Amon.
The horn sound is triggered by a loose connection in my steering wheel, so the horn goes off whenever i pull down a bit on the steering wheel. That usually only happens when i start to panic, so you can tell when i'm starting to panic in the video. Imagine wide eyes and gritted teeth when you hear the horn.
I tried a Super-8 look for the inset trackside video for some extra character.
This is still the standard version of Longford 1967 which is currently available on the workshop under Studio 397's account. Thanks to them for taking my project onboard and promoting it as they have. I expect to be working on an updated version of Longford soon.
6 hrs of Le Mans
another video of the 1966 additions to the 1967 Endurance mod's upcoming release.
This video takes a combined inspiration from Le Mans Classic, the Ford vs Ferrari movie (aka Le Mans '66), and a little from the 1970 McQueen movie.
6m40 of AI driving. I tried to give it a bit of a film look.

Preview of the selection of 1966 cars that will be included in the next update of the 1967 Endurance Mod for rF2. The mod is based on the ISI/S397 Howston G4.
Using historic cars on modern Le Mans is suggestive of Le Mans Classic grid/plateau 5 (1966-1971), which could include cars such as the Ford GT-40 MkII and Ferrari 330 P3. Those are also the cars that featured in the 2019 Hollywood film Ford vs Ferrari (or Le Mans '66).
I've attempted to include some film effects in this video, adjusting the colouring, and adding some grain, flicker, and blur. My PC was struggling a little with frame rate, dropping to ~30fps, which has actually helped with the effect of film's 24fps. All cars are driven by the AI.
I thought I'd try something new!
What do you think?
SimRacing presented on "Next_Level v. 2.3"!
Here's race 1 from round 10 of the Xfactor Racing GT3 league, from Essington! I would love to see this track get a full rework up to rF2 standards.
Best lap of my life on the Nordschleife + BMW M2 Cup combination
I just bought and drove that car for the first time today at Dijon. Practicing for an SRL series. OMG I'm in love with it!
