Williams Shows it's might at Surfer's Paradise

Last night's race of Surfer's Paradise only had 4 drivers but it definately was a fun drive for me atleast. Qualifying times were within 1 second for the first 8 minutes out of 10 and the race was filled with unexpected twists and turns.

Qualy times:

Lynch Radinsky: 1:21.087 (Fastest of the Weekend)
John Ruth: 1:22.643 (+1.556)
Dae Bennett: 1:23.443 (+2.356)
John Denman: 1:23.510 (+2.423)

Brawn GP Came out to an early lead after Qualifying 1-2, Dae Bennett (AT&T Williams) would soon overtake J. Ruth for second and follow up by taking advantage of Lynch's braking problems. Red Bull had pit problems and was force two laps down before the end of the race.

Race Results:
Dae Bennett: 30:40.709
Lynch Radinsky: 31:09.451 (+28.742)
John Ruth: 31:10.943 (+30.234)
John Denman: 30.42.100 (+2 Laps)

Audi R15 for Enduracers.

For all those that love endurance/ Le Mans racing here is a great car made by someone that isn't working with Enduracers (But the car fits with either Enduracers or Serie International Du Mans)

It's a great car so there is no worries, however, you WILL have to modify some files so if you use these mods for multiplayer either backup the .RFM or you might just want to reinstall the mod to a different rFactor.

First things first. You'll need the car itself. I want to first say that the car above is my own skin of the car which I will upload shortly anyhow. I DID NOT make this car, I'm only helping you install it!

Skin: Plus Skin by JB.rar
Audi R15:

Now that you have the car from 2009 it's time to install it. This car works primarily as a stand alone but you can use it in any series.


Drag the R15URG into Enduracers like shown here

If it's too small to read like that make sure it's in Gamedata=>Vehicles=>EnduranceSeries=>P1

NOW step two. the RFM file.

Please remember that you don't need to move the sounds file to anything but if you're like me and want a more realistic sound I'd say replace the R15's SFX to the R10s in the SP1 package.

For the RFM file

Here's an image of mine with the R15 installed 

You need to open the .RFM with notepad by right clicking it and selecting open with...

After selecting notepad you need to delete the line Vehicle Filter = EnduSeries found on the seventh line (Not including the spaces) Now the RFM should say 

// EnduRacers - Endurance Series
// EnduRacers © 2010
// v1 - SP1
// Game/Season Info: Salvation

Mod Name = Endurance Series by EnduRacers SP1
Track Filter   = *  // this filter allows any track
SafetyCar = EnduranceSeries_PC.veh

Matchmaker =
Matchmaker TCP Port = 39001
Matchmaker UDP Port = 39002
Loading Bar Color = 16750848
RaceCast Location =


Now you're done! Go out there and race!

Serie International Du Mans

Drag the R15 into the ILMS folder and then modify the .veh file with notepad to (Example)

Team="LM24 Audi Sport Team Joest"
Driver="Capello - Kristensen - McNish"
Description="#01 - Audi R15 TDI"
Engine="Audi TDI V10, 40 Valves"
Classes="LM-P1 R15"

That's the Le Mans 24 Hours car #1.

Afterwards open the ILMS .RFM and make the beginning look like this

// Carpe Nocten Design Group
// Game/Season Info:
Mod Name = Serie Internationale Du Mans v2.77
Track Filter = * // this filter allows any track
SafetyCar = ILMS_PACECAR.veh

Matchmaker =
Matchmaker TCP Port = 39001
Matchmaker UDP Port = 39002
Loading Bar Color = 16750848
RaceCast Location =

If your game crashes with ILMS and the Audi R15 like others have reported and I have also experienced, sometimes a cpu restart fixes it and if that doesnt help try racing without the Porsche Spyder and possibly the Acura P2, I don't know why but they seem to affect that for me. Good Luck and Good Racing!

That's all you need to do to race the R15 Earlier than Enduracers can release it. Now we have to find that R18 somewhere. Thanks for reading and comment if you need help or if you want to thank me just click follow for great rFactor screenshots, leagues and Mod Reviews!

I did not make any of these mods nor vehicles the skin is mine though!

RaceRoom: The Game

Simbin has done it again, another simracing game in beta, free to all!

Raceroom is a free game from Simbin featuring only one track (Hockenheimring 3 versions: Short, National, Grand Prix) and two car classes with 11 opponent cars each a Formula One type car and the Camaro Cup.

The sounds of this game is amazing, Exterior it has the most realistic Formula sound out there (Way ahead of the rFactor mods to date) Interior aren't perfect but they're still very nice.

Graphics wise this game has little improvement from Race07 and other simbin titles but I guess we can't complain when the game is 100% free.

There is no damage in this game however which I give it a thumbs down for. Consequences is part of racing now people will have an extra reason why to try that stupid move to the inside on a corner or to brake a little later than you while running behind you like Mark Webber at Valencia. Also with that said there is alot of bumping in online races for position. A positive for cars but not for open wheelers in my opinion.

Overall the game shows alot of potiential and I suggest everyone that is a racing fan to try it. Weekly time trial competition and soon screenshot competitions ETC. I have a feeling that in time if they get more tracks, maybe even a fantasy one, this game will be good

Bull splits the Brawns in Round Three

Elkhart Lake, or Road America, was a great track for the USGP Series especially after the previous two road courses, a nice change of scenery too!

Practice saw Lynch leading the pack as it always seems to be setting a dominating time of 1:36.087 a total of 2.8 seconds over the competition!

Lynch Radinsky: 1:36.087 45 Laps
John Denman: 1:38.939  25 Laps
Dae Bennett: 1:40.231 38 Laps
John Ruth: 1:42.255 57 Laps

While 2 seconds seemed to be the gap for practice it all changed in Qualifying. A last second lap brought John Ruth from fourth to third and Lynch hardly held onto his pole position. Edging out Denman by only .008 seconds

Lynch Radinsky: 1:38.333
John Denman: 1:38.341
John Ruth: 1:41.080
Dae Bennett: 1:41.187

With such close Qualifying times between the sets of drivers the start was critical. Right off the line Ruth passed Denman when the lights switched green but Denman retook second on the first turn. Bennett would be the next to overtake when he passed Ruth in turn 3 and 4. There the spots would stay until a glitched stop and go disqualified Dae Bennett and unfortunately ended his race.

Race Results:
Lynch Radinsky: 18 Laps 31 Minutes 36.911 Seconds (+0.000) Fastest Lap: 1:39.038
John Denman: 18 Laps 31 Minutes 49.719 Seconds (+12.808)  Fastest Lap: 1:38.805
John Ruth: DNF Fastest Lap: 1:44.425
Dae Bennet: DQ Fastest Lap: 1:41.299

Las Vegas Troubles.

Las Vegas, proved to be quite a tricky track this time around. Blind corners, tight chicanes and only one high speed straight.

Practice went as planned with laps almost under 1 minute for every driver. It was close and competitive throughout Qualifying as well.

The race posted more issues when the server gave out connection to all of the drivers ending what was a really great race in it's tracks.

Almost an hour after the scheduled start, when the connection was secured all the drivers came back for a final shootout. A 5 lap race to determine the points.

Lynch Radinsky set pole and got the win followed by John Denman in his return. Third place saw Dae Bennett followed by John Ruth in fourth with a crash DNF.

This is a very late post and now you know why. Not much to summarize other than the five laps. That is also why there is no race edit.
