    RDLMS by Vesaro Round 2 - Silverstone Banner.jpg
    The Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit plays host to the second round of the 2017 RDLMS by Vesaro series on Saturday with 40 cars looking to fight for the victory spoils in Northamptonshire.


    The Thrustmaster 6 Hours of Silverstone is the scene for round two of the seventh running of the RDLMS by Vesaro rFactor 2 championship. Following an explosive start to the new campaign the teams and drivers will be chomping at the bit to take to the famous curves of Silverstone in another battle of speed, nerve, skill and commitment in a bid to take home the big points towards what is already proving to be a fantastically competitive endurance racing series.

    With the race running in to the early evening, the teams of RDLMS by Vesaro will have ahead of them a punishing endurance sprint at the demanding Silverstone Grand Prix track. With only six hours on the clock the drivers will have to walk a fine tightrope between outright speed and endurance racing savvy, as even the smallest mistake could be the key to undoing your teams chances of taking the victory spoils come the chequered flag at race end.

    TXL Racing are looking strong heading into Silverstone. We are definitely a team on a charge after driver swap issues affected us last time out. Im not going behind the wheel myself this weekend, however the team have some strong drivers taking to the track and we hope for a strong finish. I believe we can get a podium position in the GT class, however we have a long fight ahead of us to recover in the championship.
    With Silverstone being such a unique track as well our drivers have struggled during practice in getting to grips with the circuit, but we are looking strong in the timing sheets. Watch out for TXL Racing on their charge this weekend.

    Thank you for using our car in the poster! :D

    FFT Corse is looking for a strong come back into this race, following the issues we had in Interlagos while we were fighting for at least a podium position..

    The laptimes in the server are looking good, we just hope in a clean race and in some nice GT battles!;)
