ADAC SimRacing Expo Report from Germany
It was our first visit to the ADAC SimRacing Expo, held at the Nürburgring in Germany, and it a real eye opener for us all. Whilst we really didn't get the results that we were after heading into the weekend, we certainly learned a lot that we'll do different next time.
In the ADAC Digital GT500 we were all set for a comfortable P9 finish, but a fuel calculation issue meant we were short one lap, costing us four positions in the end, finishing 13th out of 24. Ultimately though we were most troubled by our drop in pace compared to racing online, however many other good teams struggled adapting to the overly exhuberant motion rigs too. 😅
Nevertheless by far the best part was going out there and representing the team in such a prestigious event, and of course with all the team members meeting face to face for the first time, and also meeting our fellow competitors of whom we've raced online for years before meeting this weekend. Online racing is great, however meeting in the flesh certainly brings a different perspective to it all too.
We can't wait for next year. The preparation has already begun!
