Brutal NARS GT3 Race at Crystal Palace

September 12, 2019 – Brutal. That’s the keyword for the NARS Summer Series racing Thursday night. Racing at the throwback track, Crystal Palace proved to be a ruckus with the majority of the grid encountering major repairs in the pits or an outright DNF from damage.

It started with the 15-minute qualifying race, won by Group A driver Don Fryman who ran out of gas at the finish and Group B first time winning driver, Paul Ibbotson. In the feature 45-minute race, it was very frequent podium finisher Greg Hall taking the win in Group A once again. Don Fryman looked to be the winner until an errant fuel calculation ran his Corvette dry. He commented to winner Greg Hall, “I knew I was in trouble when I saw you duck into the pits behind me.” Behind Greg was Norm Graf followed by Jon Uyan. Group B has a new series […]

NARS Flatsix Visits Crystal Palace

September 5, 2019 – Another new track for this group and another one that is tight and fast making a clean pass almost impossible. With lap times under one minute there was no time to even catch your breath. Tire wear issues would again scuffle the field with those that got it figured out moving to the front. After 60 minutes we would again see Greg Hall lead Group A across the the finish line followed by Jason Whited and Don Fryman. A nice welcome to new arrival and first time winner goes to Group B Mark Cotherman with Frank Radosti and Tom Nasella following him home. The NARS Summer Series has just 4 races left in the long 24 race season.

NARS Summer Series – Flatsix Round 6

August 22, 2019 – Well it’s been a very trying week for rFactor2 Admins. First, the scheduled track (Barber) would not work with the latest version of rF2 requiring a track change. Then a round of updates from S397 broke more things than they fixed. Finally, on the morning of the race S397 released an update that would allow us to get the race in but the crew at S397 still have some bugs to fix.

NARS Summer Series – GT3 Round 5

August 15, 2019 – Show up last to finish first, that’s how JT Tami handles things. With real life responsibilities keeping JT from joining the server until the last minute of warmup, I asked if he would like for warmup to be restarted, only to hear “no, give me 30 seconds to make my setup and we’re good to go”. This was also JT’s first win in the Summer Series so a good night for him! Frank Radosti got his first win in the series taking the podium in Group B.

Another “Hall Day” at GT3 Autopolis

August 2, 2019 – At the end, it was Greg Hall taking first place (again!) in Group A, and Brian Hall (again!) taking the win in Group B. But with the competition at the NARS Summer Series GT3 race at Japan’s Autopolis putting on a real show, the winner wasn’t a lock until the very end. Ben Dutton took the pole with a very fast 1:04.781 qualifying run followed by Colin Moore, Adam Baldwin, Greg Hall, and Jason Whitfield with a seperation of only .025 seconds amongst the top five qualifiers! Ben proved the quali time was no fluke by taking the win in the 15 minute race with Jon Uyan grabbing second and Norm Graf in third. For the 45-minute feature race, Greg Hall took the win while Jason (second) and Adam (third) battled and banged their […]

Uyan takes rF2 Belgium 2.4 Special Event

July 14, 2019 – Jon Uyan grabbed the pole position then built an early lead that stuck for the whole race in Sunday’s CMS 2.4 Belgium race. Early on, it looked like Jon would have some serious competition but due to incidents – usually at or around the infamous Eau Rouge coaster ride – it was not to be. Jon’s chrome-domed Aston Martin never faltered providing a flag-to-flag win. Chad Bartrum drove a good race in the McLaren 720S to take second place, and Don Fryman rounded out the podium in his trusty Corvette.
