"Les 2.4 heures du Mans" on 12th June 2022 made history here at THR. A grand total of 64 fearless drivers from 5 communities convened to relive an iconic era of sportscar racing, jointly fielding 32 of the fastest sportscar prototypes of the 1960's in teams of two at the circuit that might be the most iconic one of them all. They descended upon the classic Circuit de la Sarthe, represented in Assetto Corsa as Le Grand Circuit 1967 by Terra21, WooChoo & VirtuaLM. To increase the immersion in this event, it was fittingly edited by Narwhal/Machina to feature the famously dangerous diagonal grid along the pits for the Le Mans start that was only abandoned after the 24 hour race of 1969.

A huge thank you goes out from the entire THR team to our friends from VintageAC (VAC), Classic Vintage Racers (CVR), Americas Sim Racing League (ASRL) and virtueller Asphalt (vA) who jointly made this happen with us, and to all participating drivers! Another massive thank you goes out to Microlin100 from CRS for his incredible live commentary of our stream. YOU ALL made this evening special for us!

Qualifying

With numerous very fast drivers on the grid, it was clear from the beginning that the fight for the front positions would be intense. After all of the teams had racked up hundreds of laps, a dominant lap by GoodSmile Racing put the #37 Donut Mushroom Racing Ford GT40 on pole with a groundbreaking 3:24.062, ahead of two other Fords that rounded out a qualifying podium for the mighty V8-powered endurance racing legend from the United States. The top 10 were split evenly between Ford and Porsche 908 Langheck teams, while the fastest of the five participating Ferrari 330 P4 fought its way 13th position on the grid.

Complete qualifying results:

Race

The scene was set for 2 hours and 24 minutes of intense slipstream fighting, strategy, and drama throughout a complete day/night cycle with one mandatory driver swap, as well as one splash&dash of various duration for each of the cars entered in the event.

The tension was enormous as the final seconds counted down and the ground shook in the paddock when the lights turned green and sent off more than 21,000 horsepower at once. Within seconds, dramatic scenes occurred when a collision on the front straight in the midpack sent a Ferrari spinning into the pitwall and rebounding back on track, triggering a pileup that involved no less than 13 cars. including an Alien abduction of the #437 virtueller Asphalt Porsche team that was forced straight back to the pits to jump into their spare car.

From here, the field quickly descended upon the famous Ligne Droite des Hunaudières that is also commonly referred to as the Mulsanne Straight. Seeing the tension and noise level rise while 32 of the finest race cars of the 1960's slowly appear on the horizon and storming towards you before flying by at over 300 km/h was a sight to behold, with Felix789 in the Donut Mushroom Racing leading the way while numerous cars in the pack behind were already busy slipstreaming their way past each other:

Cold brakes and a full fuel tank caught Felix789 on the wrong foot, though, losing the lead while performing a perfectly executed 270-degree-Spin in the Mulsanne run-off zone and rejoining just in time to avoid potential disaster after two other GT40s had made contact with each other at the beginning of the braking zone, causing their drivers to lose control. One of them crashed into the trees inside of Mulsanne, while the other miraculously spun through the apex of Mulsanne without a T-Bone collision. Several vehicles made contact behind, leading the Ecurie Ecosse Porsche to end up on its roof after jumping over the sand bar lining the exit of Virage de Mulsanne.

Tragedy was only two minutes away, however, when contact at the exit of the Dunlop curve on lap 2 sent a GT40 spinning and crashing into the inside wall violently before unavoidably being collected by three other cars directly after the Dunlop Bridge, leading to even more horrifying scenes when the Ferrari 330 P4 that first impacted the stricken GT40 crashed over the barriers and into the spectator area.

The battle raged on into the early evening hours, with the lead passing through several hands such as the #920 Bloody Wartburg Racing Porsche in which Henrik Ward stormed into the lead within the first laps of the race until a spin at Arnage cost him several positions again. The evening saw the first retirement of the race, when the last spare car of the SG Stern team was destroyed in a tragic high-speed lapping accident on the start/finish straight after the team had already been caught up in the start crash and the tragedy from lap 2.

After this dramatic early phase of the race, the shadows grew longer and the teams began to switch on their lights, having little time to spare to enjoy the beautiful sunset that dips the Ligne Droite des Hunaudières into a beautiful orange tint in this video.

The night was on, and like it has often done before in real life, it became the decisive phase of the race here once again. With diverging pit strategies, teams tried to gain decisive advantages and disaster struck several teams who had driven themselves into a promising positions, whether through spectacular accidents or through technical difficulties. Notable casualties of the night included but were not limited to:

  • Lindholm/Ward in the #920 Bloody Wartburg Racing Porsche (DNF - driver swap problem)
  • Mellero/Narwhal in the #99 Keyboard Racers Ford GT40 (DNF - driver swap problem)
  • Seppänen/Koivisto in the #29(1) Thunderbolt Wolves Ford (DNF - driver swap problem)
  • Breurather/Marx in the #95 FlyBy e-Sports Porsche (flipped out of the lead due to an unsafe rejoin)
  • Flashor/HappyKojot in the #22 Braking Monkeys Ferrari (head-on crash at 280 km/h)

As the sun began to rise again above the Circuit de la Sarthe, it became clear that it was going to become difficult to beat the pole-sitting #37 Donut Mushroom Racing Ford GT40 that had retaken the lead during the evening before running away from the competition with a spotless performance during the night hours. With an unchallenged winning margin of nearly 82 seconds, Felix789 and GoodSmile Racing took home a dominant victory in Le Mans.

Behind them, two Porsches on different pit strategies emerged as the knights who would duke it out for 2nd place: #71227 The Kingsmen (Timo One & Patrick Goldbach) and #92 Imkermeister Motorsport (Sebastian Holler & Valentin Knechtel). The decisive moment between the two came with the Splash&Dash of the Imkermeister Porsche #92 in the final laps of the race:

The Imkermeister Motorsport entry emerged with a 5 second lead over the Kingsmen team with five laps to go. After condolidating their position until the end of the race, 2nd place was taken home with a 12 second advantage by Sebastian Holler and Valentin Knechtel.

The Kingsmen had started the race as the top-qualified Porsche team and delivered a spotless race. In the end, Timo One and Patrick Goldbach brought the #71227 Porsche home safely in 3rd place, and 9 seconds clear of the 4th-placed-Ford of meisterJäger and Simone Porcu.

Congratulations to the winners and the teams who finished on the podium, and thank you to everyone who helped us to make it happen - both behind the scenes, and on track. It was magic!

Live Stream of the Race

THR was hugely fortunate that Microlin agreed to commentate on the race.

He turned the special event into an incredible event.

Unfortunately, the technology did not cooperate.
Despite smooth recording and best connection, unfortunately laggs occurred during the transfer from OBS to Youtube, making the stream jerky.

We would like to give the race and the great commentary a proper framework and re-record the video.
However, this is difficult and will take some time, because:

  • the audio commentary is not in a separate track and the engine sound has to be filtered.
  • the camera settings and angles made by Microlin have to be replicated
  • there is no single coherent replay file

Nevertheless, we would like to thank Microlin for his great work!

Amazingly well organized event.

Final words from pitman

When I decided to organize this event, I didn't expect how much work it would mean.

Many things were new to me and I spent hour after hour organizing the race.
Fortunately I had support from my Orga members, but also from the admins of the other communities.

After almost everything (except the stream) worked well, I can say that the effort was worth it.

It was absolutely worth it!

What was that for an event?

Awesome.
32 teams, 64 drivers, day/night, 2.4 hours and that in Le Mans.

It was great to watch you all live on the streaming PC in my house. (Fortunately there was no lag.)
Your feedback after the race was great. It made up for the effort of the last days.

I think we put on a great event and we learned a lot in the process.

Last week we had a meeting with the organizing team and the good news is that we agreed to offer similar events in the future!

For this we have noted some improvements:

  • the collection of all needed information of the teams/drivers will be done via a google form in the future
  • if we have a day/night transition again, we will provide a test server for the whole week
  • for the skin problem we had with one car we also found a solution
  • we will improve the information on the website
  • we will create channels in Discord, where you can help yourself with problems (of course we will support in the channels)
  • etc.

If you want to stay informed, you can assign yourself the role "THR Endurance" in #role-assignment in our Discord server.

Special thanks to our OrgaTeam, to the admins of the communities (or their representatives) and especially to Microlin.
And of course, many thanks to all the drivers who were on track with us.

[THR] pitman

On 2022-06-12, THR will host the announced Endurance race.
We race the Kunos trinity (Ford GT40, Ferrari 330 P4, Porsche 908LH) at le Grand Circuit at Le Mans…

The race will last 2.4 hours and we will simulate a complete day/night cycle.

You will have to compete as teams of 2, which means that we have a mandatory driver swap during the race.

Since we have 35 starting places, we have asked friendly communities if they would like to participate.

Until now, we have 30 cars registered.

That is awesome!

On the upcoming weekend we have the 3rd race of our F1 75 championship at Buenos Aires.
We already have 17 booked slots, but I hope for many more racers on track.

The weekend after we have the "THR Supporters Race".

It is time to reveal the details:
Over the last 3 1/2 years some of you decided to support THR via a Paypal donation, a Patreon membership, a goodie from our shop or by using the affiliate links. support-thr thr-shop affiliate-links

Your support helped THR to rent the servers, to host the website, to update the streaming hardware, to send out lottery prizes to our championship participants, etc.

The upcoming "THR Supporter race" is meant as a "Big Thank you" to all our supporters!

Every supporter got a role (Patreon or Donator) in our Discord, which gives access to a normally hidden channel. If I have forgotten someone, please send me a PM.
Next week we will publish a password in that channels. This password will offer the possibility to participate in the "Supporter Race".

As a part of the Supporters race we will award 3 lottery prices from our THR Shop!

About the race:
We race the GPL Mod at Oulton park.
Oulton Park is a great choice! It was not part of the 1967 F1 championship, but they raced the track twice in that year.
The "Daily Express Spring Cup" in April and the "International Gold Cup" in September.

There is a vintage version available, but the track mesh was undrivable. Luckily there is also a more modern version available, which still uses the same layout.
I removed some holes from the track mesh, made it smoother and removed the modern objects around the track.

The idea of the race is, to have a more balanced field than in our previous GPL races.
One side effect will be that we will see the slower cars on tracks that are normally never chosen.
The following chart shows, how we want to achieve that.

You can check your current ACSR ratings here:
https://acsr.assettocorsaservers.com/index

The track, the cars and the idea to mix it all up is set.
I really hope for a great event!

And we have a champion!

After a great championship with 6 exciting races, margar17 was able to win another THR championship.

Especially impressive is that margar17 was helpful to all drivers, for example by providing his setup for each track.

Valentin Knechtel finished the championship in second place and Nat Stevenson took the third place at the podium.

It was an interesting championship: Some drivers hated the car, others loved it 😉

Congratulations to the winners and many thanks to all championship participants!
