Hello ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls. Welcome to my tenth SimRace247 blog of 2022. Can’t believe I’ve reached this point already. For those of you who have taken the time to read any or every single one of my blogs, I’d like to personally thank you for doing so and I hope you’ve all been enjoying them?

Unfortunately, during the previous blog a couple of weeks ago and this one, I’ve been feeling unwell. So, I needed to take any opportunity to have a break and try to recover from illness. Thankfully, I’m back to full health (more or less) and have returned to streaming on my Youtube channel.

For the remainder of March, there won’t be any competitive action to talk about in Assetto Corsa Competizione. Behind the scenes, I’ve been extremely busy preparing for my move to Twitch in April, as well as working on my current projects for the final few weeks that I’ll be live streaming on Youtube. However, there’s still lots to share about the streams which I broadcasted. So, let’s talk you through all of my activities from this previous week.

Kicking things off, we had the 6th episode of my “What If Multi-Multiclass Racing Competed Here?” experimental series. This time, the track in question, compared to others that I’ve trialled during this series, is relatively straight forward. It’s another Formula One venue, but it’s not as demanding, or as tight as places like Jeddah or Montreal. This time, we jetted off to the Hungaroring.

For this episode, I decided to pilot another Le Mans Hypercar with the Moyoda HP01, which is based on the Toyota GR010. My original intention was to drive the Moyoda in the previous episode around Montreal. However, a day before I went live with episode 5, United Racing Design released the Glickenhaus Hypercar. So, I drove that one instead.

The Moyoda is not perfect from what I can remember when I did a video review of the car last year, but it was still immense fun to drive. Very immersive as well with the sound modding for that particular car. Sounds very close to its real-life counterpart.

For those of you who don’t know, you can change the names of the A.I drivers in Assetto Corsa via Content Manager. It’s something that I’ve already altered during the last episode at Montreal. I decided to include my Youtube subscribers into the series by having their names on the A.I bots in game.

The experiment itself around the Hungaroring was the most successful to date. With a total grid of 30 (including yours truly), we only endured one retirement from the 28-lap experiment. Whilst the middle sector of the circuit can be troublesome, especially with the vast amounts of twists and turns, and with the width of the track narrowing, the rest of the Hungaroring was relatively straight forward. Lots of potential, and safe places for drivers to overtake, especially when it comes to the task of passing slower traffic. In general, I thoroughly enjoyed episode 6 of this series.

There will be 2 more episodes of this first series before it draws to a close. However, when I plan to make the move to Twitch, I will be bringing this series back but with a different bunch of vehicles. I won’t give away any hints just yet, but there’s much to look forward to for the rest of this current series as well as the upcoming one in April.

Thursday saw the latest attempt at my community event in DiRT Rally 2.0. After being triumphant at the previous rally around Poland, my hopes were high to continue this good run as I was about to embark on event number 3 around the stages of New Zealand. I’ve always loved this rally. So fast & flowing, you can definitely get into a good rhythm around the stages.

However, I was on the back foot straight away. I must admit that I didn’t have as much time to prepare for the rally as I would have liked. But the machine I decided to drive for the event, the BMW M3 E30, initially felt really nice in the brief amount of time I was able to test it. So, I was quietly confident heading into this one.

But my hopes were soon dashed. As soon as I completed the very first stage, I already lost control of the car and lost a few seconds to a rapid driver called Aldyr (a DiRT Rally 2.0 alien). I tried to claw it back on the next stage, but it was even worse. That a short summary of how the rest of the rally went. It was one to forget. The BMW was a lot trickier to drive than I first thought.

One of only two positives to take from this whole experience was that I survived all 12 stages. Despite how disastrous it was, I still enjoyed myself though which is the main thing.

To conclude the first week back, I had my Forza Horizon live stream on Friday. I decided to go solo this week as the regulars that join me for a convoy weren’t around. So, this was more of a chill out stream where I had the opportunity to socialise with my subscribers. It’s always very welcoming when I get the chance to do so.

Let’s talk you through all the upcoming content I have line up for next week. Today, at 6pm GMT/7pm CET, I shall be releasing a brand-new video with a car that I have endlessly been searching for a very long time in Assetto Corsa. The 2017 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE, the very car which was triumphant in that years Le Mans 24 Hour endurance race & also clinched the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship GTE PRO drivers’ series for Marco Sorensen & Nicki Thiim.

Now that I’ve found the car, is it worth having in your collection? And will be one of only a small handful of great Aston Martin mods for AC? Well, I’ll explain all in my upcoming video.

 

Wednesday will see a break from the “What If” series as we celebrate the start of the 2022 Formula One season with the latest edition of “Pedal To The Metal”. I will drive a series of cars from the sports history to see how quickly they can pedal around the Bahrain International Circuit. Then, to conclude, we’ll have a mini race with cars from every decade competing at the same time. This will no doubt be an interesting and fun stream.

WEDNESDAY’S AC STREAM

Thursday will see the fourth episode of my “WRC 10 Rally Career” series. After claiming victory in the Ypres rally, I’ve managed to get my career back on track. The only way is up, but can we keep our progression going? Or will I falter once again like the Portuguese rally? I hope for the former, but knowing my luck in rallying, who knows what will happen.
