On Sunday at 9PM CEST we'd like to invite you for an evening with the
IRG PC 2 Starter series for the third time in GT4 cars.
For the dessert to finish off the test races, what we have in store is
the all-famous Nurburgring, which many of us had the opportunity to get
to know first-hand last year, when the IRG-World team and friends
visited the Simracing Expo. We must admit that after a brief test run in
PC2, not only the layout of the track is perfectly reflected in the
game, but you can also feel the atmosphere.
A year ago we did not think that we would take a break from GT cars in
rfactor 2, but now it has become a fact. We can see that there is an
interest from drivers, and we're also seeing more fans tuning into IRG
Studio live broadcasts, which we are still trying to "polish up" as we
go, as it motivates us to work. Of course we still have some quirks to
iron out, as you've probably seen during the last race, on Zolder, but
our behind-the-scenes team is working hard, and we hope that in just a
few more weeks we'll be able to provide the best possible experience.
And despite the issues we've experienced, we still hope that the race
and the transmission was as enjoyable for everyone - drivers on the
track, fans on the transmission, and commentators in the studio - as it
was for us. And to add the the experience, the race in Zolder started
with a bit of rain, so we've had changing conditions and the fans could
see how Livetrack 3.0 works in practice.
The track was drying up during the race, but the process was definitely
faster in places where there was sunlight than in places hidden in the
shade, making the track somewhat tricky for drivers. Besides that, even
in the drier parts of the track there were puddles, where drivers could
quickly lose control of the car. Which of course means they've had to
decide whether to change tires for faster, new slicks, or stay on the
worn out and overheating rubber more suitable for the wet weather.
Racing in PC 2 Starter is a preparation for the main season of GT3 cars,
so we've decided not to set a password for the final testing race at the
Nurburgring. During the official practice, qualification and race
sessions our server technician, gTc, will monitor traffic and try to
find out what caused the issues on Zolder.
For everyone interested in the Nurburgring experience with IRG, the
Sunday's timetable runs as follows:
20:00 Beginning of the official practice session - don't forget that
penalties incurred during this session can be transferred to the qualifying
21:00 Start of qualifying, 15 minutes without laps limit
21:15 Start of the race, We plan to race 80 minutes, tire wear will be
If there are any changes or additional information, we will post it in
administrative announcements on our forum.
We invite you today to the live broadcast from the air-conditioned IRG
Studio on the channel.
As for the weather, it looks like we're about to have a dry race, but be
wary, as final forecasts will be given on the race day, and of course if
you decide to join us on the PC2 server, you will be able to check what
"Mrs Weather" has prepared to us.
