Our dedicated driver for this series Dragos Haba has a long term wish and that's to race in real life against another RaceDepartment member on a real racing circuit. His opponent's name? @Florian Strauß. Florian Strauß is a multiple online series winner here at the site and claimed various titles during recent years with the PC simulation rFactor, including our massive endurance league the Virtual Le Mans Series.
Blancpain Endurance Series
Florian is no longer only racing the virtual racing tracks. He is living the dream and has advanced to real motorsports and is currently competing in the Blancpain Endurance Series for the Nissan GT Academy Team after winning the GT Academy last year.
During the last six months we have been stimulating Dragos to enter this years GT Academy himself and
Fueled by a mild frustration our driver decided to put his energy into a 4K recorded lap around the home-soil of the GT Academy: the Silverstone Circuit and races the official Team RJN livery as a tribute to his former online rival Strauss but now in an entirely different game: Assetto Corsa.
Wouldn't it be great if Florian submitted his lap as well? Or in case you are reading this GT Academy? Give us a call to setup a PC counterpart of the series, it's about time for a GT Academy 2.0!
The car raced with a stock setup, apart from minor ride height changes. The sun was responsible for a 26 degrees ambient and 32 degrees track temperature with a 95% grip level on track.
The fast lap was completed in 2:03.344 and you can enjoy the 4K video registration above. To enjoy the beauty of the video to its full potential make sure to watch it in Ultra HD Quality (2160p).
Now the benchmark is set it's your turn to show your pace and see if you can match or even outpace this fast lap! Feel free to leave us a video response on our YouTube channel with your attempt!
The first season of the One Lap, One Car video-series will contain 10 videos in total published on YouTube twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday. If you would like to stay up-to-date and receive notifications of new stunning video material, make sure to subscribe to our channel.
