    Great day. Last day working this year and now 2 1/2 weeks on holiday. Patch is released, and what a one!!! And tomorrow I'm looking forward to receive my new raceroom seat :)

    First I thought only 1 of the 3 Porsches we expected. But what a great one. Fits perfect in the game and the AI-selector is just fantastic. So we can have a race, setting up awesome grids we can only have at raceroom cause of its overwhelming motorsport content. Absolutely fantastic!

    I'm just driving my first 100 car strong race at 24h NOS with GTR3, GTR4, TT RS, BMW M235i, DTM 92, WTCC, WTCR, new Porsche 934, and and and.....:)

    Question to @Georg Ortner
    Can you perhaps tell us how the decision making procedure is working on your site when you select the Porsches? We all know Porsche has so many interesting and successfull cars with the 919, GT1, 917, 956/962...all the GTs etc. I think something like a finest selection (9 out of all the greatest) is a hard process.

    So how does it work. It's just a strategic thing what can fit and what kind of classes we have in the game or is it also the case that you have internally decisions made based on the favourite Porsche cars you guys have or you listen to the fanbase ( I remember an podcast you asked what favourites the people joing that have --was the current RSR of the GTE--....so if you can talk about I would be very interested in how this works at sector 3 :)

    Okay, this AI selector thingie is just ridiculously good.

    Did a Revival race, with NSUs, Gr4 and Gr5 at Mantorp Park, and I'm still grinning. :D
    Not a single collision despite some horrendous closing speeds. Hell, I've seen much more chaos and carnage in iRacing multi-class races.
    Brilliant work S3, you've really outdone yourselves this time. :)

    Oh and....When you're sitting in a NSU and a field of Gr5s comes thundering past, that'll definitely make you pucker up. :eek:

    Yeah, first thing I wanted to try was 100 cars VLN, but I guess I need more than my 8GB of RAM :D

    Confirmed and reported. Must have been some last minute change that caused this. Thanks again.

    Well, we did 3 modern Porsche's last year, so the decision to do some historic ones this time made sense.
    With the huge history of Porsche in motorsports it wasn't easy to pick our favorites.
    But of course we had to keep in mind which models could fit in nicely in RaceRoom and its current car roster.
    The 934 is not only one of the most iconic Porsche cars, but we do have plans to extend the Group 4 class, which fills a nice gap between some of the Touring Classics and Classes like the Group 5 and GTO.

    For the two other cars that are still to come, you will have to wait and find out, why we chose those.
    But close followers of RaceRoom might already have a good idea of whats to come :)

    What he means is you only need to buy one livery and you still can make a full field of ai liveries from the same car with the ai selector.

    That's absolutely great news.
    Group 4 will be great, maybe with Capri and BMW. :hearteyes:
    By the way, the Porsche is a dream:kissingheart::kissingheart:

    Fired raceroom up for a special round with the AI. Only some laps in practice mode. I've driven the new Star. Porsche 934.
    For AI I've selected GTO, Class 5, Touring Classics, Porsche Cup and the LMP1. Then pressed the button for auto fill.

    And what should I say: it was very funny. All those 45 cars on the Nürburgring, overtaking, overlapping.

    Guys, I think with this implementation you did everything right. Nothing, what you have forgotten or is wrong. It is perfect, how you did it. Very great, very cool.

    Thanks you and merry Christmas!

    Incredible how good the AI works in multiclass. Raceroom is where motorsport is at home and it's simply worldclass-sim-racing :)

    I don't think Capri or BMW (except for M1) were ever homologated in Group 4 category.
