    Can I be nosey and ask why GHH have a penalty and start at the back? Also, why are some of the details missing on the entry list and provisional grid?

    Race Control notices will be published on Friday.

    Some teams have still not submitted their ERF.

    The penalty was applied because it's our back yard and we were deemed to be far too powerful a force so to make it fair for everyone else we are starting behind everyone else :lol:

    Obviously that's not the case, it'd be nice if it was hahaha

    @RacerManiac has just informed me that 2 of the teams drivers have pulled out, it will be just @RacerManiac and @GTR_VENTURI who can not cover the whole race. Do we have 2 drivers who are not currently taking part who would like to join them?

    You will need to sort stints out amongst yourselves. Good luck.

    I could lie about my age for you ;-) but adding 35 years would make me 71... ;-).

    Unfortunately, this weekend is too packed for me to race :-( makes me a sad panda. If I would have to give a ride throw it to @Sinyster . That kid has a gift ;-)

    In my GTP racing career, I may have started 100 races, but tomorrow just might be the most difficult one yet. I haven't raced in nearly 2 months, and I'm really happy to come back to this grueling race track. The Nurburgring 24 Hours is a race of speed, strength, and survival. This, you could say, may be the most difficult race ever on GTP which will make every position worth just a bit more. I left with a bang, and you better be sure I'm gonna try to come back with one! Good luck everyone! :cheers:

    One year ago today, Inferno Racing was founded for a race just like this by myself and @Mike458. One year later, we've expanded our team to 5 drivers with the addition of @rcb929, @CodDemon101, and @TRL_EVOLUTION. We've secured a GTPlanet Championship, we've taken part in three 24 hour races, and, as of today, we turn 1 years old. Many thanks to everyone who has supported us even when times were tough at the beginning of this year. We've come a long way and we're not stopping anytime soon.

    The only one of our drivers driving this weekend is @rcb929. Best of luck buddy and win this not only for the Green Hell Heathens, but also for Inferno Racing. We're counting on you!

    Happy Birthday to us! :D

    He better win it for GHH or it will look like he threw it :lol:

    Happy birthday to INF Racing! You guys have a very bright future in SIM racing and probably GT Academy too, you certainly have a couple of drivers who can get to that standard!

    Good luck to everyone this race! I am a bit bummed that I am not racing but it's going to be motivation for the next one so you can enjoy this one without me on the track! I will be at my desk for the whole thing though so I will be here for it.

    Respect to you all :)

    That much is true! There's some 'new' faces to the N24 scene on GTP (from the CORE and Wurks races) but also some of the die hards from day one are here so this isn't just about GTPES, this is also about stamping your authority on the toughest track there is with drivers who have been doing it for years! Quite a few of you have sat by and watched the local races and wished for this day to come, well now it is here so get your game faces on and bring some spare undies because it's a rough ride out there and experience will play a big part.

    There's some scores to settle, friendly rivalries to maintain and some new ones to strike up as those who have come before do battle with the new breed of N24 online drivers!

    Remember this: You can have all the fast laps in the world but it won't mean a damn thing if you fall off at Hatzenbach.....

    It's exciting stuff :)

    Only a fool would ignore those guys.... Best bet is to get them behind you and hope they fall off otherwise they will harass you all race and that's no fun at all :lol:
