    With one of the most distinguishable shapes in motorsport, the NSU enjoyed much success in the late ’60s/early ’70s when these cult cars dominated the European rally & circuit racing scene. The 1000 TTS, with its inline-4 engine giving 122hp through the rear wheels, outperformed many sports cars thanks to its high power-to-weight ratio.


    In our latest Special Event, we give you the opportunity to recreate the glory days of the NSU by presenting challenges in both Hillclimb & circuit disciplines. Leaderboard qualifying will be staged on the stunning 10.5km RaceRoom Hillclimb run where drivers will need nerves of steel to post a fast time. The main event will consist of 3 sprint races on the Knutstorp, Mid Ohio & Nordschleife circuits which will guarantee fun and leave a smile as broad as the canted hatch on these addictive hot rods!


    Server 1 on Race Day, that will contain the fastest 30 drivers from the LB qualifying, will be broadcast LIVE on our YouTube channel!​

    Qualifying 3 (Nordschleife) will be a 12-minute private session (rolling start) as there is not enough time to complete an outlap + hotlap.

    It just means that you can't see the other cars on the track during qualifying and you also don't need to do an outlap, just like on the leaderboard. Apart from that, it's a normal online qualifying session.

    Practice 1 will now be for 1 hour to give everyone plenty of time to get onto the server. So, instead of P1 starting at 19:40 CEST, it will now start at 19:10 (CEST).

    Qualifying 1 has not altered and will commence at 20:10 CEST!

    Good luck with your races!

    I don't know what the problem was, but there was a major problem in server 3, race1 kicked out 1min before the race, race2 kicked out after the start of the race and after the first corner and race3 just before the start, game blocks, could not back to my desktop

    I had a great time in Server 3, and had an amazing battle at Mid Ohio for 7th place position, nose to tail all race! :)

    Guys, already after the race. Can you explain me the secret of speed on the straight?
    I had minimum fuel, but even with it, my acceleration and speed were far behind competitors. I tried to change gears on 7K, 7.5K rpm...same dynamic.
    On the straight competitor in slipstream overtook me very fast, but then i could not make the same.

    Très belle soirée sur le serveur 1
    Tout d'abord, merci aux commentateurs Mr Miguel Santiago Carou et Mr Daniel D Finney, au top !!
    3 belles courses, notamment sur les 2 premières avec de belles batailles avec Mr JESPER ERIKSSON, très dur de dépasser, mais assez propre dans l'ensemble.
    Ma plus belle course était sur la Nordschleiffe, partit 16ème car j'ai raté mes qualification, et finir P2, une belle bataille avec Mr LUCA PELLEGRINI and Mr MASSIMo BONNI
    Bravo à tous les participants !
    Et non, je n'ai pas de NSU dans la vrai vie, cela était une blague faites par un de mes collègue
    Cordialement
    Mr Christian GARCIN

    **************************​

    Very nice evening on server 1
    Firstly, thanks to the commentators Mr Miguel Santiago Carou and Mr Daniel D Finney, at the top !
    3 nice races, especially on the 2 first ones with nice battles with Mr JESPER ERIKSSON, very hard to overtake, but quite clean on the whole.
    My best race was on the Nordschleiffe, started 16th because I missed my qualifications, and finished P2, a nice battle with Mr LUCA PELLEGRINI and Mr MASSIMo BONNI.
    Congratulations to all the participants !
    And no, I don't have NSU in real life, it was a joke made by one of my colleague.
    Sincerely
    Mr Christian GARCIN

    Thanks to all drivers who participated in this Special Event!

    The time-attack qualification would provide a stage on which the NSU felt right at home having enjoyed much success in its heyday of the late 60s/early 70s. The Hillclimb run would provide a unique and fitting challenge for drivers to tackle with Michel Kasperink recording the fastest of 8, sub 6 minute times on the Alps.

    118 drivers would take place in the 3-race main event which would provide some extremely entertaining racing as these cult cars just begged to be slung into every bend and leap over every crest! Gavino Pintus would prove too good on the night and took wins on Server #1 at Knutstorp, Mid Ohio & Nordschleife. The same can be said about Tobias Naumann, Ziga Mikeli & Dominykas Koncevicius too in their respective servers. Links to all servers results can be found in post #11, above.

    Thanks also to Miguel & Daniel for providing comms on the evening!
