    The Viper has been excluded from the race for being too loud. :crazy:

    Edit. Too slow again!

    Being DQ'd for being too loud in a race, that has to be the most European sporting rule ever.

    There's a law for noise restrictions which the officials have to make sure is obeyed. The Viper was measured with more than 130dB four times. The rules are clear, so everyone should be prepared.

    Track repair in progress in the Metzgesfeld - Kallenhard area, thats the reason for slow lap times.

    How was the Viper measured 4x over the 103db limit?

    No it is most definitely not. It's probably more common in America. Especially when contractors build homes near race tracks and then have homeowners complain about noise (Laguna Seca).

    Has the Manta ever been in a racing game? I mean officially, not modded.

    EDIT: Drinking. :D

    Been late catching up with the Nurburgring 24 hours this year, been watching it with more interest past few years as I've been getting into my endurance racing even more so.

    Anyway missed most of the start, but what happened to the pole sitting Glickenhaus, as it seems to have dropped away dramatically?

    It was either the 702 or the 704 that got rear bodywork damaged on the right side, and had to pit for repairs. Dunno what happened after that.

    Ah, ok, that'd explain it. Take it, that occurred quite early on.

    Big shame really, as with their shock pole, I was really interested to see how they'd get on in the race, being underdogs :(.

    There's too much to try and follow for me. I just like when there's an onboard and another car ahead to chase.

    Anyone else see that Cayman indicate left, give room to the SP9 car with the on board camera, and then close the gap on the apex when the SP9 was about to pass?? I almost had to get a new pair of pants.
