    Pocono speedway is about 45 mins from me. Local news posted an article stating that Indy car is not coming back next year. Which is a bummer, yes there has been a death and to major accidents within the last 4 years. This years accident was very similar to last years crash with Robert Wickens. Except that the driver that caused it forgot his brain before he got in the car.

    Just as a quick update looks like the fia or whoever is in charge came to the conclusion a gravel trap would be better now

    and the changes mentioned afterwards concerning the gravel are for the FIM more than anything else


    But in order to conform with a Grade C level of eligibility imposed by the FIM (International Motorcycle Federation), Spa will execute changes to the run-off areas at Eau Rouge and Raidillon with a deadline set for 2022 and the return of the 24 Hours of Spa motorcycle event.

    The red flag was unnecessary because there was no car left to race.

    During the the Live-Stream for todays DTM Race at Nuerburgring, they showed a small report about a Simulator Event on Thursday there, with the actual 2019 cars but different Liveries (Astons at least) and it definitely didn't look like RRE - sry to say that....:(

    Someone of my community said it looked like AC (HUD-wise) but it's unlikely that Kunos will take over, isn't it ? So maybe it was just another AC-Mod or even exclusive Content by Kunos they used for that event....

    Congrats to René Rast for winning his 2nd Championship (early again), without Teamorders throughout the Weekend btw.

    Congratulations too, René! :)
    Yes, Rast is really fast on track, maybe as good as Schneider/Ludwig in their best years (so for Bernd Schneider from his birth until now ;) ). Especially his Qualifying performances are mindblowing!
