    Today the terrible news reached us that Rodolphe Morin passed away after losing his fight to cancer.

    The Frenchman who was a long term member of RaceDepartment and a passionate simracer for TeamGG, together with his brother Antoine.

    Rodolphe joined in various of our early racing leagues for RACE 07, GTR2 and rFactor. In the video below you can see him racing together with his brother during the 2008/09 season of the RD GT Championship wearing the famous tricolores of his french team.

    We'll do our best to organise a worthy tribute race for Rodolphe soon!

    For now our thoughts go out to his family and friends and we wish them all the strength with this terrible loss.

    Au revoir Rodolphe!

    Rest in peace Rodolphe! I may not have known him or raced with him but I think we all have an affinity with our fellow sim racers.

  9. Sad news.

    Condoléance à la famille, courage pour Antoine et pensées pour l’ensemble de la team GG.

    Je me souviens avec émotion d'un Rodolphe bleu-blanc-rouge sur la piste, toujours fairplay, je l’imaginais bien sourire aux lèvres derrière son volant.

    Repose en paix Rodolphe.

    I remember good racing in the early days of RaceDepartment and before. My sympathies to those close to Rololphe and may there be speed in his afterlife.

  15. Je me permet d'écrire en français, afin que mon faible niveau d'anglais ne m'empêche pas d’exprimer mes sentiments. Je copierai une traduction "coogle" a la fin du message. Merci.


    Je connais Rodolphe depuis qu'il a intégré notre TeamGG le 26 décembre 2007, à peine un mois après la création de l'équipe française. Je me suis tout de suite attaché à Rodolphe (rodpod), pilote confirmé et expérimenté, il était toujours la pour aider un pilote sur un circuit, ou dans ses réglages, le cœur sur la main! Discret mais ultra investi, il faisait parti des meilleurs pilotes de la Team, surement un des plus fairplay que j'ai connu. Ses performances sur la piste ont fait de lui un pilote respectable et respecté. C’était un perfectionniste, surement le pilote de la Team qui préparait ses courses le plus sérieusement! C’était aussi le spécialiste des premiers relais des courses de 24h, il ne connaissait pas la pression! c'était vraiment la force tranquille de l'équipe! j'ai eu la chance d'être ton Team Manager, c'est une vraie fierté pour moi, j'ai aussi eu la chance de passer 2 weekends avec toi et ton frère, avec d'autres pilotes, de réels très bons souvenirs! je n'oublierai jamais ta bonne humeur, la complicité qui te lie à ton frère semble immortelle, mais ta place sur la grille, au coté des pilotes TeamGG, et de tous les pilotes qui ont pu apprecier ta compagnie sur les pistes est aussi immortelle sois en sur!. Antoine peut compter sur moi dans cette période douloureuse, ainsi que sur tous les amis GG.

    Je remercie énormément @Bram Hengeveld et @Dennis Phelan de nous permettre de lui rendre l'hommage qu'il mérite, Il a fait ses premières courses sous nos couleurs dans votre ligue, avant même la naissance d'RD! Je suis sur qu'il apprécie énormément votre geste :)

    je demande à tous les pilotes qui souhaitent se joindre à nous d'installer Race07, En effet, j'ai demandé à Dennis de créer un événement le jeudi 29 mai, sur un circuit et dans une voiture que Rodolphe appréciait, les pilotes les plus proches pourront effectuer un tour d'honneur, et porter un skin spécial. je compte sur vous... pour lui.... pour Antoine aussi.

    RIP mon pote rodpod, je sais que tu rouleras encore avec nous, tu as emmené ton G27 la-haut! Passe aussi de bonnes parties de pèche avec dieu ^^

    I know Rudolph since he joined our TeamGG December 26, 2007, barely a month after the creation of the French team. I got immediately attached to Rodolphe (rodpod), confirmed and experienced pilot, he was always there to help a driver circuit, or in the settings, the heart on the hand! Discreet but highly invested, it was among the best drivers in the team, probably one of the most fairplay I knew. Its performance on the track made him a respectable and respected driver. He was a perfectionist, probably the driver who prepared the Team shopping more seriously! It was also the first specialist relay races 24, he did not know the pressure! it was really quiet strength of the team! I had the chance to be your Team Manager, this is a real pride for me, I also had the chance to spend two weekends with you and your brother, with other drivers, real good memories ! I will never forget your good mood, the complicity that binds you to your brother seems immortal, but your place on the grid, the next TeamGG drivers, and all drivers have appreciate your company on the slopes is immortal 'm in on!. Antoine can count on me in this painful period, as well as all GG friends.

    Thank enormously @ Bram Hengeveld and @ Dennis Phelan allow us to him the homage he deserves, He made his first race under our colors in your league, even before the birth of RD! I'm sure he greatly appreciates your gesture :)

    I ask all pilots who wish to join us to install Race07, because I asked Dennis to create an event Thursday, May 29, on a circuit and a car Rodolphe appreciated, most drivers family can do a lap of honor and wear a special skin. I count on you ... for him .... Antoine too.

    RIP my rodpod buddy, I know you still roll them with us, you took your G27 the above! Also requires good parts of sins with God ^ ^
