    Re: ADAC Zurich 24h

    Insane angel

    Was watching the start of the race last night on radiolemans and in the beginning I was thinking that red flagging the race was a bit of an exxageration, but then these pictures came through and it was obvious. Good job by the clerks. 


    Re: ADAC Zurich 24h

    A race for Porsche (and their fans) to forget.


    Re: ADAC Zurich 24h

    IMG_5393.JPGAbsolutely delighted, my mates from Black Falcon won, taking the lead on the last lap!

     


    Re: ADAC Zurich 24h

    That was an impressive move on the last lap!

    Was Merc's dominance due to favorable BoP?

    Re: ADAC Zurich 24h

    Good question, it's always a gamble, usually Audi play it the best as the pour a lot of money as big sponsor into it.

    Black Falcon had the better pit stop strategy compared to HTP and then with Maro Engel a former Mercedes DTM driver who didn't take any prisoners on the Grand Prix circuit with that last last move!

    Well...lets just say that they weren't hurt by the BoP. 

    Once again there was a lesson to be learnt (Earth calling Porche) : Torque cant be controlled by air restrictors.


    Re: ADAC Zurich 24h

    Very disappointing for race for Porsche overall and a disaster for the works Team Manthey!

    I wonder if the GT3 R has the potential to become competitive at all under the current BoP rules.

    Yes, very dissapointing.

    Sure , the car has the potential to become competitive...if given the right BoP. I believe they were running with 34.5mm restrictors on each side. If they were increased to say 36mm on each side, it could have been an excellent Porsche & Mercedes battle. 


    Re: ADAC Zurich 24h

    Agreed, but the restrictor size was increased to 34 mm from 32(ish) mm in 2 stages just before the race in a final round of BoP adjustments, turns out it was not enough and it is doubtful Porsche will be granted more...


    Re: ADAC Zurich 24h

    Incredible highlights video of this year's 24h race. What a track, what a race...

    Re: ADAC Zurich 24h

    I watched the on-board livestream extensively, mostly the No 44 Falken Porsche GT3 R...fantastic stuff, true motorsport excitement, much more so than F1.

    Re: ADAC Zurich 24h

    The Green Hell once again proved the origin of its name - absolute mayhem an hour or so into the race.

    Watched mostly during the night at Breidscheid from about midnight till 5 AM. Great atmosphere, great place..this and Le Mans 24hr are definitively my fav motorsport events.

    Really liked the E34 btw!

    Small impression from Breidscheid by night:

    Yes, they originally had 33mm , so they were increased by just 1mm. This was clearly not enough , given that Mercedes were allowed to keep their current BoP (due to profound sand bagging in the first 3 VLN races). If the regulators wanted to allow Mercedes to keep their current BoP, they should have increased Porsche's BoP by a significant margin/


    Re: ADAC Zurich 24h

    Actually, 32.6 mm increased to 34.5 mm .  Anyway, it was not enough, with the top 2 P cars out of the race against 6 works supported Merc-AMG and a host of R8 and M6 GT3.


    Re: ADAC Zurich 24h

    I think you hit a point there. With the number of cars Merc and Audi throw into these races, and the stat of survival, Porsche is already down irrespective of BOP. When the race then is hit by rain etc, Merc/Audi will have options to send "test" cars out on different tyres making the risk for their front runners smaller.

    Ah! Thanks. I was told they had 33mm.
