    For me and my team it seems to be fine, to know, which teams and drivers are actually in the grid. I´m unhappy wizh the entry list, because there are so many entries, no one knows if they would start or not :(.
    Team Rennsimulanten will start with two Bentley, one Camaro and one Subaru!

    They still have to register.

    This is a typical Markus posting only a partial information thinking everybody knows what he means because in his mind its clear. ;)

    A request to drivers from your friendly, neighborhood race control monkeys.

    If you have an incident, please be sure and provide these specific things so we can isolate the incident quickly.

    Your drivers name Your car number The other guy driver name Their car number The lap the incident occurred according to your car's lap The corner it happened using the km markings on the map (below)

    Example:
    Jon Uyan
    Car 630
    Fred Dingbat
    Car 009
    lap 42
    km 14

    Post THAT when you come into the race control chat and we can lock into it quickest.

    Sorry but audible requests, and....
    "well we think it was 2-3 laps ago and it probably was car 008 or maybe it was 009. It happened just before that second corner after the long straight before the hump...."

    ....just don't help YOU or US.


    Track map is in the first post.

    So a few words after the 24 Hours of the Nordschliefe.
    My first words are to than @Markus Broch and his team including the talented and hard working @Simon Christmann. It's a massive event and massive work, thank you.
    Welcome to the new teams that raced, I hope to race against you many times in the future. The pace at the front was incredible. In a clean run we would have been pressed to be P4 or P5.

    For every team and every time this race is a massive adventure and a massive journey. So it was for us at Hagemann Racing. Last year we won this event when everything went right including a good tactical call on tyres on a drying track.
    We welcomed two new drivers to the team @Luciano Santos and @Gerhard Zeller. Both nice guys and good drivers. We created our rota for 5 drivers and Lars started.
    It was clear from the opening hour that there were 3 teams with huge pace.

    AI Bug:Lars tried to pit after 2 hours but there was a mis-communication and he ended up doing 3 hours. In VR I understand that's tough.
    So after 3 hours at lap 21 we again tried to pit. This time AI took the car.
    Simon Christmann wisely suggested that we leave the AI in the car but his pace was poor and he ignored us on the radio so after 1 lap we got him DQ'd and we started from the pit garage again with Lars. Lars drove a lap and we tried once more-AI took the car again!
    One more lap (we figured we would give the AI a final chance to prove himself) and we DQ'd once more.
    This time Lars just did a lap of the GP circuit. Same result, AI took the car.
    @Greg Hall was kind enough to give us a fix for the bug and all drivers implemented the JSON file change.
    It was 3hrs55 mins when @Lars Hagemann finally managed to hand over the car to @Bjoern Hagemann. We had dropped from P9 and 4m40 sec from the lead to P21 and +3 laps!

    Bjoern cleared the Touring cars and handed to @Luciano Santos F in P16.
    Luciano took us to P14 with a solid drive in the wet.
    At 9hrs 15 min I took over and had a scrappy wet stint. Not my finest hour. The wet tyres tempted you on the out-lap but if you pushed that was the only good lap and then the rears were gone.

    11:15 pm (23:15) I handed to Gerhard and went to bed.

    At 7 am Luciano was running in P8. We had had a good overnight.
    Next we had P7. Not sure if that was in mine or Lucianos stint?

    I was so looking forwards to a dry stint in daylight and Luciano said the words "It's raining".
    I took the car with wet tyres once more. I tried a different approach to managing the rear tyres and it worked, they stayed good for 7 laps. In this stint I built the gap to P8.

    Lars took the car at 9:45 am and Bjoern took it home from 10:45am.

    We had drama, fun, met new team mates.

    Congrats to the winners Reborn Racers you took the big one.
    GT Omega and Black Hawk great drives and to Team GPL. You guys were stunningly fast, well done.
    and @Michael Roellin you are unbelievable.
