Season 5 Promo trailer landed last week and Chazlington media did a brilliant job again. Every season he comes up with goods! The community loved it again and if you never tire of seeing this then check it out on the Esports Network before we go live every week on wednesday at 20:00BST
Round 4 Monza
Season 5 is well under way and Maarten Van Loozenoord followed
his win at Spa with a win at Montreal in round 2 and at Road America in Round 3 so going into Round 4 at Monza he knew that it was a strong Mercedes track and to qualify on pole would be difficult. it proved just that with Tom Metherell claiming pole in the dying seconds of qualifying.
The race however started well for Tom but Maarten was just too strong and went into fuel save mode whilst follwoing Tom and managed to save 1 lap of fuel and again once he managed to overtake Tom showed a masterclass display. taking the win once again. Rev Match team driver kevin van der slik also got by Tom and finished in 2nd place. Tom held on to the final podium place with a solid drive and his best result in the league.
Silver class again was won by Nick schurmans to consildate his lead at the top of the table. Ingemar Andersson was wassecond and Ronald Moons with a great drive finishing on the podium.
Bronze class again proved to be exciting with Dries Moujdy leading the class and qualifying so high up amongst the gold drivers but yet again leaving himself one lap short of fuel exactly as he did last season at this track! but just managing to hold off Kevin Bolland by 3 seconds, with Rob Tjissen claining the final podium spot.
Next week we move to Road Atlanta a popular track with many endurance drivers.
The TCR League kicked off with Round 1 and Round 2 at the infamous Brands Hatch circuit on friday evening and it was close hard fought fght between Ross Mcfarlane and Nicol Foggie taking a win each. Foggie taking driver of the day for an amazing comeback after a poor qualifying in race 2. some great battles through the field in both races and it bodes well for the season.
The SRW community has always felt like a family to many and a while back we had this mad idea of a meet up at Zolder Circuit. This took place one weekend in June and members travelled from as far afield as Germany, Northern UK and all over Belgium. It was an amzing weekend of Motorsport, Beer and Bram's famous BBQ. Hosted by our sponsor Jochen at DynamiXX who arranged the venue and the beer. This will now become an annual event. So if you wish to be included at the next one, watch this space for dates for 2020.
Round 1 Spa Francorchamps
19 cars turned out during week 13 update nightwhich to be honest seeing as the update was around 5GB and it didnt go live until about 2 hours before the race started, is a miracle!
The fight at the front was an intense battle all the way to pit stop phase at around 40 minutes. Then it changed and Kevin der Wael for Team GRT came out the eventaul winner with Revmatch driver Colin Caresani and Peter Grouwels of Atomic closing off the podium with a brillaint drive holding of a trio of DynamiXX drivers behind him.
With no classes in Evo and no team championship either it will be an every man for himself battle throughout all 12 rounds.
The EVO series follows the Pro calendar so again its off to Montreal for the first time in the history of SRW next week.
Massive news for the DynamiXX GT PRO Series this week. After the amazing growth and popularity over the last 18 months it was clear the league was heading somewhere big!
We made it to the Big Time! Well, it happened. We have been accepted to be broadcast on the iRacing eSports Network!
After the amazing support that Apex Racing TV have given the league over the last 2 seasons it didn't take much bullying of Lee at Apex to put our names forward and make an application on our behalf to see if we would be accepted for the pinnacle of Broadcast platforms. well, it didn't take long for the application to be approved which astonished the admins at SRW and not only to be recognised by iRacing but be able to showcase our league on their network is nothing short of amazing.
Appreciation must go out to Sam and Marco at Apex for the enthusiasm and support they have given the league and community over the last 9 months. We look forward to hearing those dulcet tones on the broadcast for season 5!
