Pre-Race Interview:

1- After a thriller at Monza, we head to Germany for the Nürburgring Grand Prix-Strecke!  While it isn't the full Nordschleife, it still offers good racing and some challenges.  What parts of the track do you find the most difficult?

2- The battle for the championship is very close!  The fight for 2nd in the team championship as well!  What is your strategy to try and stay ahead of your rivals?

3- Ahh, Germany.  Famous for a favorite thing of mine, BEER!  Would you prefer a light and refreshing [font=arial, sans-serif]Kölsch, a tangy Berliner Weisse, or possibly a flavor filled Dunkel?  Please note Bud Light is not an acceptable answer to this question, penalty points may be applied![/font]

[li]One of my favorite tracks though I have yet to run it in iRacing series yet. Definitely T1 thru T4. Laps are made and broken here and any one of those corners can and will result in some lockups and/or spins this week.[/li]
[li]Consistency and avoiding wrecks.[/li]
[li]Here is one of my local-ish favorites of recent: https://untappd.com/b/naked-dove-brewing-company-banned-in-cologne-kolsch/3074957 I don't mind any of those styles but prefer the general lower ABV of a Kolsch of late.  [/li]

Getting through the arena is critical.

For a normal night.. rolling rock or PBR will do. If I'm feeling fancy I'll take a Triple karmelet.

Turn 2 has always given me fits and I have no idea why.

Punt them, then wreck them, then make fun of their mother.

If it's not a stout, it's not really worth drinking. Some lesser people prefer a vodka and cranberry, but they are just on their period.

That stupid chicane at the end, it's only single file, you can't use the curbs much, the exit is horrible, and it destroys your rhythm.

Strategy? No sticking strategery! Just trying to survive each race and we will see where we are at by seasons end.

Kolsch for me.

FYI, unless I'm blind there is no default set for this track. I used the Interlagos set but added some rear wing. Expecting the same tt temps as Monza so definitely needed some help with grip.

This entire track is difficult. It requires patience in some corners, then balls to the wall in others. Hard to balance that while trying to get the best lap you can.

5th so far and really haven't had any extravagant finishes. 7th is my best finish so far and I'm 5th in points, the math doesn't add up but I'm not complaining. Guess the goal now is to keep being consistent and placing top 10s and see how that does.

The arena section takes a lot of discipline and finesse with the pedals. The Bilstein-Kurve can be tricky too. Getting the turn-in just right allows you to carry a lot of speed all the way to the chicane. With the draft you can get in the radicals I expect that to be crucial.

I'm just going to try to have a good race and not do anything stupid this week.

I'm a big fan of Oktoberfest Marzens. Paulaner's is very good and so is their Salvator Double Bock.

The car feels surprisingly good around here. But the trickiest part for me is setting up the first four turns. They're so tied together that messing up one throws off all the rest of them, so I'm probably losing a lot of time coming out of turn 4 and hitting the straights. The last chicane is also a little difficult so expect me to be braking early into it.

2- The battle for the championship is very close! The fight for 2nd in the team championship as well! What is your strategy to try and stay ahead of your rivals?

Just trying to keep it on track and seeing where we land once everyone's destroyed their cars. Seems to be the only viable strategy in the Radical.

I prefer wine....but yeah lets go with the Dunkel.

PRL Overlords, I want to inform you that I've changed my iRacing name. I don't know if you have to make a change as a result. I've been meaning to do that since about two weeks after I joined iRacing.. which was a while ago. Anyway, it's now Andy Spicer instead of Andrew Spicer. And no, before anyone asks, no pronoun change, just first name. Thank you, that is all.

All good.  I only ran mine for two hours last night, so yours filled in the gap nicely.  I think you had more people in yours as well.

Turns 2-4 are tricky for a couple reasons (IMO).  The "fast line" through 3-4 opens you up to attack, but you can fight back at 5 if you get the better drive.  Finding the right line at the apex of 4 is tricky as well.  You want to be close to the curbing but too much and you hit the bumps, upsetting the car and spinning out.  

I've seen more accidents in 3-4 than turn 1.  At least at 1 there is room to escape, not so much at 3-4.  I fear there is going to be some unintentional punting happening there.  

What I really like about this track are the amount of passing opportunities that can be made safely.  





















































P.S. Indy car sucks  :mrgreen:
