Daytona 24 Drivers of the Day!

Post by HCR Motorhead on Sun 22 Jan 2017 - 19:01

As the dust settles and people catch up on sleep or pray for forgiveness from their other halves for staying up all night for "a bloody racing game", it's time to rally together, preferably with some coffee (w/ milk, half spoon of sugar please), to tell everyone your standout moments or drivers of the race.

Did a driver among your team exceed your expectations?

Did somebody step in last minute and deliver the goods for you?

Did somebody manage to recover from a setback?

Did another team impress you?

Somebody in your lobby do something that earned your praise?


One C is better.

F4H Bandicoot First Time back and ages, and he was on Pace with the top Runners, others may of seen it coming but i didn't know Bandicoot until a few days ago, and hes right on the money.

Did somebody step in last minute and deliver the goods for you?
Bandicoot to Double stint 10 and 11 Very Happy top Job

Did somebody manage to recover from a setback?
i believe, Motorhead had a Controller Disconnect and managed to climb all way from Last in Class back to 2nd. really well done.

Did another team impress you?
Many of the GT Guys and GripTek Motorsport really took the fight to 3rd place really well done.

Somebody in your lobby do something that earned your praise?
GT Guys, Giving Way when LMP's were in Midst of Battle i think i was battling for 2nd at 1 point and all the GT guys were all getting out the way, even though they shouldn't but really appreciate it <3


i do wanna add though, all the Support that everyone showed to my Stream your all amazing and i can't thank you guys enough Very Happy

thanks again to all Very Happy we all have a deserved rest Very Happy

Not really, we were all on it and we took it to F4H and their hired guns and made them earn it!

Did somebody step in last minute and deliver the goods for you?

Hamish was great, especially with the last stint cock up from me, and being around just in case I couldn't make it through my night stints.

Did somebody manage to recover from a setback?

Hamish again, he got spun on turn 1 on lap 1 but came back through the field. I had a controller issue that made me try to do damage limitation

Did another team impress you?

Our other car got 3rd just behind us. That is MEGA for them and I'm well chuffed!

Somebody in your lobby do something that earned your praise?

PRT Racer is a gentleman and a pleasure to share track with. Most of the GTs were really nice to pass, and the racing was enjoyable, the diversity in car performance made it really fun. The differences might not be so prevalent at Sebring but it'll still be a good show.

CarlsonsRaiders ran well to keep HCR Lotus Motorsport in contention, and I'm proud to have had both him and Grizzly in a car with me on the podium Very Happy

In terms of last-minute step-ins, we didn't actually have any in our car aha, but Hamish jumpping for Scuderia in S12 certainly helped out Smile

in terms of other teams, I was definitely impressed by the performance of the Black Diamond Racing guys. they ran solidly in A lobby in their first event and I'm sure they'll be back for more.

As Motorhead mentioned, PRT RaCeR was probably the most courteous GT car in the field, made things run swiftly with regards to lapping and keeping himself and others out of danger. Overall it was an excellent lobby in terms of standards, and I look forward to seeing this level of racing again at Sebring.

We all had good pace. Pleased with how well we performed.

Did somebody manage to recover from a setback?

James, his controller turned off costing him around 2.5 miles but he managed to get back up to 2nd in the lobby. Good job 👍

Did another team impress you?

Red Sonja were the team to beat after quali and they led from start to finish. Flawless display well done guys. Also for for HCR Lotus to get third place was a great result 🍻

I had a good race with diablo at the start of stint 2. How we managed to navigate through those 2 battling gt cars in the horseshoe..... was really good driving from both GTs to let us past and then continue their battle.
Also can't not mention the battle with Car Lightning in stint 9. Going either side of the Porsche Gt at the end of the main straight was awesome. I hope someone got it on a stream or has the replay. I would love to see that again.

I would have to give it to one of the drivers on the partner Prototype team to my GT team. 10 minutes into stint 7 one of the other cars had a lag spike that destroyed the entire front of Dr Chair PHd's Ford DP and sent him rolling across the infield inside the trioval. From that he drove all the way back through the field to finish first in Lobby B. It was an incredible recovery drive from something he had no control over.

Crazy650 during testing he was the slowest driver after constant time alterations he came out of nowhere to be at the same consistency as myself and as a team I thought we did well as it was our first ever endurance race of this caliber

Great race to all those we had the pleasure of competing with in lobby c and to the hosts for having the patience of first race of the season mishaps

Honestly I was amazed by how fast Phantom was in the RSR. Whenever we were in the same lobby he was always fighting for the lead in GT.

Did somebody step in last minute and deliver the goods for you?
Twitchy stepped in for me during stint 10 as i was recovering from a popped blood vessel in my right eye that was very irritating.

Did somebody manage to recover from a setback?
After a dismal stint 1 by yours truly, the whole team got it together to forget about the start and to finish strong.

Did another team impress you?
THR were very quick and very good about giving us GT cars a heads up about them coming up on us, but our DP team was close behind them the whole time.

Somebody in your lobby do something that earned your praise?
I forget the guy's GT, but during stint 1, I got caught on the curb at turn 4 and got spun just as a red Corvette DP was passing me. I immediately apologized, but the guy was super nice about it since he knew it was my first race and he sustained minimal to no damage which made me feel better.


Overall, I had a great time and I can't wait until we do this all again!

I believe the biggest diserved gamers out there are the ones that set this event up. The stewards were very mature & prevented any heated conversations from rising up and above all were very patient. It made a very lovable environment and allowed us to focus on our competitive edge.
A special thanks to Maynard who decided to host stint 11. His plan was to host 12, but with no show for B-lobby he came through and was again, very patient & helpfull to us all. One driver did not recieve an invite to this race, but I take on the responsibility since I volunteered to give them out. (forgot about race control, my bad).

Another tid bit to my fellow driver, iloveMRT (could never decide how to pronounce) did a fabulous comeback after what would have been an embarrassing performance. He literally surprised me by his aggression on track, showing he could really put the car to it's limit, putting on a great show on stints 9 & 10. The races always did look Bad A- with no assists.

LMP Statistic and I battled for the entire stint 11. I'd have to say a dozen lead changes at least.

Thank you to HCR Solar for streaming Lobby A, it was fun to peak into the top lobby and watch the best race.

Thank you to the admins, organizers and marshalls. I realize you guys had a lot thrown at you. I appreciate the time you guys spent, testing, typing rules, settings, organizing.

Thank you to HCR Motörhead for creating this topic! We needed more positive around here.

Sending some love back to my team mate - some evil dude. Garry was up for most time, he was following my stream and provided information and tips. What is more he did double stint when our 3rd driver did not appear even that was very early morning hours. As a fastest driver in our team his performance was top notch. Also want to thank MrDaleJr2012 for backing our team up with some stints.

Things worth notice- 2 DP cars fighting for position passing me from both sides right after entering NASCAR banks. The amount of joy that this maneuver brought to party was overwhelming. Shout out to the Corvette DP driver that due to both our pit stops turned out to pass me 4 times in a row in same place.

I have to mention that lobby B was grate place to drive. Mature, calm and respectful driving from all of drivers. Looking forward Sebring to fight you again.

Sir Marcoos as he's first being an endurance race with night stints, running on Lobby A with all the ninjas , he done more than i was expecting ! PRT team it's very grateful, he prove himself!

Did somebody step in last minute and deliver the goods for you?
PRT team are very reliable, but big Shout to PRT Zebesnagao and PRT Galinha, awesome pace !

Did somebody manage to recover from a setback ?
Sir Marcoos, he was struggling at first to get used to the pace and the crowded lobby , but he manage to keep it together and crack on with the job !

Did another team impress you?
I wasn't expecting any less from any team in Lobby A

Somebody in your lobby do something that earned your praise?
HCR motorhead, that MaN have some cold blood to overtake a GT in an almost non existent gap with not even a rub lol , HCR Solar big shout out to him, kept us informed thru his live stream all night ! Racing and reading ppl posts and replying to them, man YOU rock ! Big Thanks in general to any LMP driver in A lobby for being cautious and patient with the slower GT lads !
CAR Zermatt, last stint, last 5 mins he bumped PRT Zebesnagao on a braking point , PRT got of track but Zermatt waited to proceed race behind again, after all the frustration they were thru due to a lag out , takes a good man to act like that , could cost his team 1 more position in the results!

Did a driver among your team exceed your expectations?
Well my whole GT team really we lost a driver right before the stint schedule deadline and everyone came together and put their best effort to the race and considering this was BBR - Team Reptile's first endurance outing we did well and weren't last lol.

Did somebody step in last minute and deliver the goods for you?
isyoube and ACG NO MERCY really put us in a good position and we just did what we had to do.

Did somebody manage to recover from a setback?
Well we did miss only one stint but it didn't hurt us too much and me may have only sacrificed one or two positions in the standings and we avoided any penalties.

Did another team impress you?
Yeah I really thought Starworks Motorsport were courteous and respectful and very good racers and the Martini livery was quite good.

Somebody in your lobby do something that earned your praise?
There were quite a few especially the LMP's and GT Leaders very good passing and raced pretty fair.

Hopefully we can share some track at Sebring!

A bit late, but I still want to contribute to this!

Did a driver among your team exceed your expectations?
I was super duper surprised with Capirossi's stints. He wasn't too great in a GT car but damn, get him in a Prototype and it's like a switch is flipped. Definitely the standout driver on our team

Did somebody step in last minute and deliver the goods for you?
Uhhh... I guess I did? Darkzer24 Pulled out hours from race start, and I offered to sub in. I got 14 hours to sleep, tune, and practice and didn't embarrass myself, so that's a plus!


Did somebody manage to recover from a setback?
This goes to our entire team. We were on track to take lobby B in prototype until an unfortunate lag out in stint...6? We still put in fantastic stints to round out the event, coming back up the order to take 4th I think. Also, big props to DrChairPhD for recovering after a rubberbanding incident to win his stint!


Did another team impress you?
I've gotta say the RedditRacing GT team's battle with the Ford and Ferrari team in our lobby (HCR and Grumpy Bunch) was great to listen to as the battles were tight but fair. Don't think I saw either GT team make contact with the other at all.


Somebody in your lobby do something that earned your praise?
The GT cars in lobby B were super respectful and responsive when being passed by the Prototypes: In stint 10, with the entire P field within a mile, the GT's had to basically jump out of the way when the entire proto field came through

But I've gotta give a super shout out to AcheyBreakey. Stalked him for about 40 minutes then spent the last 15 minutes of Stint 8 in a mega battle with him. Was easily the most fun I've ever had in an online race, and he ended up getting the better of me. Great fun and great racing all round!
