Online racing is the best way to experience your favourite sim - check out what we've been up to with Assetto Corsa Competizione recently..
Summer is gone and fall is slowly taking over the northern half of our beloved planet Earth. Which means it is time to get back behind the wheels of your virtual GT cars. Ever been curious about what's happening on the virtual race tracks? Well, today is your lucky day! This is the Assetto Corsa Competizione Race Club round-up of last month!
That fall is taking over Europe, has also been visible on our virtual race tracks in the Assetto Corsa Competizione Racing Club. September started and ended with races that were soaking wet. Germany had major thunderstorms awaiting our brave drivers. A huge surprise met them on the virtual Sunday after having a dry Friday practice and a drying Saturday qualification. Severe rain...
This proved to be the theme for the rest of the month. Out of nine events, six of them featured rain in at least one session. The last event of the month, GT3's in Spa-Francorchamps, was even red flagged due to the severe rain and was continued just after the wet stuff had passed. This race has therefore not been recorded in the below mentioned statistics...
Even without this race, we recorded 2569 laps, totalling 10.627 virtual km during our events in ACC last month! Oh, 943 of them featured rain as well... that's over 35%!
We have had two kinds of races on the club. Blancpain GT races have featured the full roster of cars from the real world series, and our events have enjoyed an average of 5.2 different brands, with some spectacular racing !
We have also tried our hand at two Super Trofeo events, where we featured the stunning Lamborghini Huracan which provided some insane battles on track. Pretty much every event we featured had some seriously close battles, and provided great fun both for the spectators and drivers alike.
Eight events, five different pole sitters and five different race winners. And pole does not guarantee a race victory. @Ricoow took two Pole Positions, but did not manage to win a single race during September. @Asterix and @Michael Rudolf did a better job, not being the fastest over a single lap, but they were amongst the five drivers that saw the chequered flag first! Congratulations to them!
- During the race at Monza on September 8th, @Trebucht was on a rampage! With 10 cars on the grid, Trebucht managed to lap eight of his rivals - leaving only one other driver on the same lap. This race has seen the least cars finish on the lead lap!
- Rain increases the amount of DNFs by two on average. Surely our club members are still getting used to the rainy conditions we have introduced to our racing clubs in August.
- Most popular car you asked? The Bentley Continental GT3. During six of our GT3 events, it was fielded 13 times!
We wouldn't record stats without giving out some awards, now would we? Yeah, with stats there are always some noteworthy ones to highlight.
King of the Overtakes - @JussiS
Be careful when you are starting in front of JussiS. He will hunt you down and nobody in front of him is safe! JussiS managed to gain three places on average during the races compared to his qualification result. This certainly must have helped him to achieve his two podium finishes!
Most Active Member - @Skinny712 - 9 / 9 Races
Skinny712 has been involved in all nine events, completing an impressive 169 race laps out of the total 214 driven laps. Unfortunately two DNF's prevented him from achieving a 100% race lap count. Nevertheless, thank you for your involvement in our racing club!
Fastest Driver - @Trebucht - Five podiums, four wins and three poles.
Competing in just five of the eight recorded events, Trebucht finished every single one of them on the podium. Therefore we simply can't ignore him as the Fastest driver of the ACC Racing Club for the past month. Will you knock Trebucht off his throne in October? (Please don't do it literally though)
That rounds up the most recent month of the ACC Racing Club. I am very sure we can beat the lap count of 2569 laps in October! Think you can beat Trebucht for the Fastest Driver award? Or do you want to help breaking the lap count of September? Can you help us raise the average grid size, brand count, or just want to enjoy great casual racing? Then go ahead and take a look at our Racing Club right here. Into other racing sims than ACC? Take a look at our Calendar and join the races you want!
