    Who’s up for the challenge this week?

    [​IMG]

    18 NOVEMBER 2018 – SDEMONNZ
    This Tuesday Aus-NZ Racing hosts another of our ever popular Tuesday Thunder events, and this week its sure to test out our “Heroes of the Virtual Tarmac”

    We take three somewhat over-hormoned classic powerhouses in the form of the GTO Classics and pit our racers skills around the iconic circuit known for one particular feature – “The Corkscrew” Yes! we are heading off to Laguna Seca for a bout of wheelspins, missed corners and general shenanigans! and of course we will throw in our now famous pace car – just to throw a spanner in the works and cause even more chaos!

    So – who will take up the challenge? Who will spear off into the desert like sand traps?, and who will master “The Corkscrew” to become our Tuesday Thunder Champion?

    It could be YOU! – come along and join the fun!

    Cant make it to race – grab your mobile and watch it unfold live on Youtube (search Aus-NZ Racing) like and subscribe for future streams. Aus-NZ Youtube Channel.

    Regards Chris.

    AUS/NZ RACING is a small and dedicated group of Sim-racers who are keen to see Sector3’s Raceroom Racing Experience expand in Australia and New Zealand. While we are not limited to members from these areas, our emphasis is to give like minded racers in these regions a place to meet/chat and race….all while having fun and not taking things too seriously! Formed originally as “BarknDogs” the group decided that a name that better represents our location should be implemented and in February 2018 the group changed it’s name to Aus-NZ Racing. We will continue on in the same “BarknDogs” spirit – where “Fun is No.1” So, as long as you have a passion for Raceroom and Motorsport, have a sense of humour and don't take things too seriously Aus-NZ Racing is your Home Of Raceroom Racing Experience Downunder.

    With the first round of the Champions league less than a month away, we thought that we would bring you up to speed and divulge a bit of history on one of the worlds most iconic circuits.

    The German town of Hockenheim has become synonymous with motor racing thanks to its famous circuit, which has transformed from a high-speed blast through the forests to a thoroughly modern autodrome.

    [​IMG]
    Hockenheimring
    The origins of the circuit began with a conversation in 1930 between timekeeper Ernst Christ and his young assistant, who suggested putting on a race in their home town of Hockenheim. Taken with the idea, Christ took the idea to the mayor, Philipp Klein, and (appropriately) on Christmas Day 1931, the municipal council unanimously approved the plans for the new circuit.

    Building work began on March 23, 1932, and only two months later on May 25 the first motorcycle race in Hockenheim got under way. For this small town, it marked the beginning of a long association with motor sport.

    The essentially triangular course began on the edge of the town and headed out into the forest roads, before looping back on itself. Just six years later, in 1938, the circuit was fundamentally changed. The triangular course was modified with the inclusion of a fast curve at its eastern end, known as the Ostkurve. The familiar oval-shape now emerged and was to be a feature of the layout for the next 63 years.

    The new layout was also christened with a new name; Kurpfalzring. The straights were widened and given a sealed surface for the first time, while wooden grandstands and other spectator facilities sprung up. The gradual change from a temporary course to a permanent facility had begun.

    In the Second World War the track was seriously damaged, with the surface badly broken up by the passing armoured vehicles, while the wooden structures were alos torn down. Nevertheless, the motorsports fans in the region were keen to get things going again, and in 1947, the Hockenheim-Ring GmbH was established to look after the economic side of the organisation. Racing resumed again in May 1947. The first German Motorcycle Grand Prix was held at Hockenheim on May 19, 1957.

    The construction of the Mannheim-Walldorf autobahn forced the circuit owners to make changes, as its course sliced through the track on the edge of the town. Plans were drawn up for a new motodrome section by Ernst Christ in 1961, with the final design was configured by John Hugenholz. It boasted a new pit straight and a fan-friendly stadium section, as well as a short course and was run in a clockwise direction for the first time. Construction began in spring 1964 and on May 22, 1966, the then German Transport Minister, Dr. Hans-Christoph Seebohm, opened the new Hockenheimring for the German Motorcycle Grand Prix.

    A sad chapter in the ‘new’ Hockenheim unfolded in spring 1968, when Jim Clark crashed to his death in a Formula Two race. A small memorial stone was laid in the forest as a tribute to the great Scot.

    Construction work at the Nürburgring meant that Hockenheim played host to the German Grand Prix for Formula One in 1970. In preparation, two chicanes were inserted on the main forest straights alongside other general improvements, including the errection of metal barriers around the circuit perimeter. In comparison with the Nordschleife, racers of the day found Hockenheim to be rather soulless and unexciting.

    Minor changes were made to the circuit during the 1980s and 1990s: a chicane was inserted at Ostkurve in 1982, not far from the spot where Patrick Depailler had suffered a fatal crash two years earlier, although this was not used by the motorcycle racers. A rather clumsy affair, it was to provide a notorious encounter in that year’s Grand Prix, when Nelson Piquet collided with hapless backmarker Eliseo Salazar and promptly engaged in a bout of kick boxing on live TV… The motorcycle racers continued to use the original Ostkurve as before.

    [​IMG]
    By 1992, a slightly improved Ostkurve chicane was built (again bypassed by the two-wheeled racers) and in 1994 the remaining chicanes were tightened in time for the Grand Prix, though the original variants were retained for bike racing.

    In 1999, plans were announced for a wholesale revision to the circuit. The FIA had demanded changes if Hockenheim was to retain the Grand Prix. At 6.8km it was felt to be too long and with large parts heading through forest sections it was not a spectator-friendly facility. A public consultation was held and several layouts discussed, with the aim of creating more overtaking possibilities.

    On December 21, 2001, Hockenheim-Ring GmbH received approval for the project, and work began on February 4, 2002. The Hermann Tilke-penned revisions cost of some 62 million Euros and boasted impressive new grandstands which boosted capacity from 83,000 to 120,000. In deference to the public financing which had supported the renovations, the official name of the circuit was changed to Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg at this time.

    The stadium section remained mostly intact, despite a new surface and a tighter Nordkurve (first turn). However, the circuit was dramatically shortened, with the long, forested straights section chopped off in favour of more tight corners. The old forest section was torn up and replanted with trees, eliminating any chance of using the old course either for future F1 events or for historic car events. As the years pass by, only the line in the trees gives any evidence that a circuit ever passed through the forest.

    The new circuit has proved generally good for racing, with a number of overtaking spots, but many lamented the loss of the long lazy straights, which marked out the old circuit as something different from the rest of the modern facilities.

    [​IMG]
    Ironically, the cost of these revisions put a severe financial strain on the circuit finances. Similar problems were being experienced by the Nürburgring, so the two circuits agreed to share the F1 round, alternating hosting each year, starting with the Nürburgring in 2007.

    Even this did not stem the losses, and the circuit posted losses for each Formula One event staged of up to 5.3 million Euro, which had to be covered by the regional government. With the German Grand Prix in danger of disappearing altogether, a new contract to 2018 was agreed with Formula One Administration, with FOA agreeing to cover any losses the event incurs, but even this did not stem the tide. From 2015 the German Grand Prix was dropped altogether and it is doubtful if it will return unless the financial arrangements for hosting Grands Prix fundamentally changes.

    Ok ! WE ARE BACK IN ACTION , with our resident league manager @Aaron O’Brien (Sticky) , he will soon be re- initiating the league side of Rally and incorporating round robin super stages for your dirty pleasure ….Don’t know about you, but i’m super fired up for what’s installed for us. Rallies are driven on surfaces ranging from gravel and tarmac to snow and ice, producing white knuckle fever and cold sweats often leading to disastrous ends off the side of a cliff or wedged between seeded trees. That look from your copilot as he distorts your name into various and sometime distasteful variants just before the final impact is some what unique to rally.

    Not quite sure we can put ourselves in the same category as such names as Sébastien Loeb, Colin McRae, Petter Solberg as legends they surely are. But none the less, with the addition of some home grown tracks and more realistic game play its time to carve your name among’st the immortals.

    [​IMG]
    So if your passionate about Rally and love a challenge then by all means click the discord link above and come join us. Being that stages and events are on a more global scale rather than being time zone pacific it creates an opportunity as where different nationality’s can challenge one another without trying to meet tight and sometimes inconvenient deadlines. So what are you waiting for ? Come join the fun !
