rFactor2 Racing Club This Week / 12
After a great series of club races this week on track including an exciting practice for the RDWSR round 3, it will be a week to get in the mood for the upcoming Formula 1 Grand Prix. Yes, we will be visiting the Malaysian International circuit Sepang. This 5.542 km track with its 15 turns is designed by Hermann Tilke and opened back in 1999 to give some very unexpected and exciting races. It’s hot and has unpredictable weather. One moment it’s dry the other second it’s pouring down. A changing scenario, how will it go this week?
We start on Tuesday with the Renault Clio. This car isn’t too small to do the North Loop. It’s a 2.776 Km part section and contains a total of the first 6 corners of the full course. Corner 7 and 8 will bring you back to the start/finish line where you are able to come out of the slip stream from the driver in front of you and dive into the tricky first and second corner. If you don’t do it right the other driver will re-take his/her position going into turn 4. It’s a scenario that makes close racing possible. Are you able to keep your head cool in this heat? Come and test yourself by signing up here!
On Wednesday, we will look up a cooler spot on the planet. Where you ask? It will be Lakeville, Connecticut USA. The layout? The loved/hated Lime Rock Park. This 7 turn 2.41 km is more tricky and fun than you would expect and is owned by Skip Barber. Yes, we take another duel with the Skippy on its own home ground, the challenger? It will be the Renault Clio. Will the fast, hard to handle Skippy beat the slower easier to drive Clio? A tough one to point out the winner for this week’s Duel. You want to find out the winner, be part of it and sign up here.
Finally, we all saw the Formula 1 in the morning in the heat of Malaysia. We should know all corners as the Formula 1 drivers showed us the way. Now we take out our own Formula 2 car out and try to copy the lines Fernando, Kimi, Lewis, Sebastian and the other 18 best pilots of the world took. Okay, the Formula 2 cars might be a bit slower than the Formula 1 cars, but the thrill won’t be less than for that. Come and join the heat here.
