On last Sunday [THR] held his first celebration race around it´s third anniversary.
We drove the GPL Mod at Kyalami 1967. Instead of doing a nomal 60 Minute race (like we are used,to) , we raced 80 laps like they did back in 1967.
It was the second full distance race in THR history. And it was a blast.
We saw great performances and many fights for positions over the most of the 80 laps.
Every participant did a really good job. We only had two smaller incidents in the first lap and the stream looks amazing, with these many cars.
The top had a good start into the race and Simone outpaced margar and pitman was able to overtake Davide.
On lap 5, margar went alongside Simone on the start-finish straight and passed him into the first turn.
At the beginning of lap 28, Mark Zeidler was 4.5 seconds ahead of margar, but was unlucky when he hit a car, which was a lap down and spun in T1. Mark lost several positions.
Flashor put pressure on pitman, but pitman was able to escape that and settled his fourth place.
However, pitman could not stop the car of Mark Zeidler, who then overtook him again and regained third place.
The podium of the GPL - 68 laps at Monza
There are many untold stories from this race. But the spectators got their money's worth.
Congratulations to the winner, the podium finishers and every participant of this great experience!
Prize for the winner of the race

I will reach out to him in the next days.

Some differences between F1 in 1967 and our THR race
|F1 1967||THR 2020|
|Race Total Time||2:05:45.9||01:43:12.230|
|Fastest Lap Time||1:29,9||01:16.490|
We were faster cause of the MOD which could not be 100% correct.
The other reason is that we were more risk-taking, because we didn't have to fear bad injuries or death in case of accidents.
Many thanks to every participant.
It was a great way to celebrate THR´s 3rd anniversary and we will have the next full length GP when we turn 4 years old!
