R3E: Zakspeed Capri Announcement & Ross on E-Bay
Back in October 2011 I opened a thread in the GTR 3 forums speculating about the addition of Group 5 cars coming to what at the time was called GTR3. SimBin’s licencing chief Jay Ekkel was hinting in that direction after an interview with RaceRoom.
Our young community member Ross Balfour immediately jumped on this speculation by saying in the first thread comment the now legendary backfiring sentence: “Just because Jay loves Group 5 cars, has nothing to do with them featuring in the game, if they feature I’ll sell myself on ebay”
Soon we will finally see the moment that the Northern Irish sim racer will be up for sale on Ebay as SimBin indeed announced a group 5 car for RaceRoom Racing Experience. The free-to-play game will be enriched with a Zakspeed Capri from the era when touring car racing was all about having huge balls and engines.
We checked with Ross for an official reaction and he commented: “Hahahahahaha. Brilliant. I’ll set up the auction tomorrow.”
